One Life

He was born in a stable;
in an obscure village;
from where He traveled less than 200 miles;
He never won an election;
He never went to college;
He never owned a home;
He never had a lot of money;
He became a nomadic preacher;
Popular opinion turned against Him;
He was betrayed by a close friend; and his other friends ran away;
He was unjustly condemned to death;
crucified on a cross among thieves;

image

on a hill overlooking the town dump;
and when dead laid in a borrowed grave;
twenty centuries have come and gone;
empires have risen and fallen;
mighty armies have marched;
and powerful rulers have reigned;
yet no one affected man as much as He;
He is the central figure of the human race;
He is the messiah;
the son of God, JESUS CHRIST.

Certificate Wahala!

image

I was at work last week busy with my students when my roomie sent me a ping that if i do not pay for my certificate before Friday last week i would have to pay 20k starting from Monday of the following week. I told her that’s not gonna be possible, how can it skyrocket from 5k to 20k so wasn’t even worried about it at that instant. Not long after that, another ping came in from a friend telling me the same thing. na so fear start to dey catch me o.

Cos there was no time to go and pay and to avoid stories that touches the heart, my roomie came to my rescue and went to pay on my behalf last week Friday. That same day LASU released a bulletin to debunk the rumor. chai the person wey start the rumor did a very good job, we plenty wey e catch o. i just dey wonder why it took LASU so long to release the bulletin sha.

So here i am in LASU my alma mater. chai! didn’t realize how much have missed this school until i got in. Appreciated LASU more during my youth service when i met other microbiologists from other institutions. Whenever we were discussing about microbiology in general. i usually hear comments like “ehen ehen so LASU used to teach” no na play we dey play for LASU lol.

So I decided to bring back good memories of LASU, here are some pix i took at some of my favorite places during my undergraduate days.

DON’T QUIT

image

When things go wrong
as they sometimes will,
when the road you are trudging seems all uphill,
when the funds are low and the debts are high,
and you want to smile but you have to sigh,
when care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest if you must but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
as everyone of us sometimes learns,
and many a failure turns about,
when he might have won had he stuck it out,
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow,
you may succeed with another blow.

Success is failure turned inside out,
the silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
and you never can tell how close you are,
it may be near when it seems so far,
so stick to the fight when you are hardest hit,
it is when it seem so worst that you mustn’t quit.
