I feel very happy seeing this picture of mine. It reminds me of the final year gettogether of the 2015/2016 academic session. I really enjoyed the graduation party of those my senior colleagues when I was in 100 level.
The graduation party was fun as there were much drink and food on tables…. It was packed with great fun… I took many pictures that day with the graduating students. This is one the pictures I took alone.
Whenever I see this picture, a sense of fulfillment always run through me… The reason is that when I was in 100 level, this was the hostel I stayed…. The hostel was so old and dilapidated.. I had no other options but to stay in this hostel because there was many exigencies to take care of- school fees, pocket money, and many other things… I stayed in the hostel because I have this feeling of contentment. The hostel has no light and bad surroundings. But after 100 level, I worked hard to raise my standard.
This was the day I finished my semester exams in 100level.. I can still remember, my last exams was English Studies 106. The exams was very easy. The day was very rainy. I took this picture immediately I returned from the exams.. A sense of ecstasy ran through me because I was very confident that God had helped me in writing the semester exams. I was then counting my A’s especially in the last exams (ELS 106).
I took this photograph on the day of the CLASFON dinner/ handing over… I always loved going to dinner parties when I was in 100 & 200 level.. CLASFON dinner was the best… I have always enjoyed been a member of CLASFON… The weekly meetings and fellowship has been second to none. May God bless my outgoing excos, they were so so wonderful.
As far as the breath of mortality remains in me, I can never forget this picture.. This picture was taken in a red letter day…. In fact, I always use this picture to mark the day.. It was the day of the executives handing over in my fellowship, final year dinner party and workers induction. In fact, if u were not there, it will be difficult for me to paint the colourful pictures of that day… But I know the day was a day of splendor.
