school materials

Episode 1
I am Daniel, i came from a very poor family. My dad is a carpenter and my mom sells locust beans at the junction not too far from home. I attended government boys secondary school. I wrote my WACE and Jamb in the year 2014. I got admission into the polytechnic the following year. My dad, after paying for my tuition fee couldn't afford my transportation fee so he asked me to move to the campus but my mom was totally against it, so she tried all she could to persuade my dad to change he's decision but all prove abortive, so she had no choice than to accept.

Episode 2
A day before i was to move to the campus, my mom went to the market and bought some food stuffs together with kitchen utensil and other things i will be in need of, at the campus and brought them home.
Now the day as arrived for me to move to the campus. 
My junior brother John helped me to carry my luggages to the motor pack and my dad standing next to my mom deep his hand into is pocket and brought out some money and gave it to me then wave at me and wishes me best of luck.

Episode 3: day one
I got to campus around 3:00pm in the afternoon, i went straight to the campus management office to collect my hostel key, hostel id card and other necessary items. I was assigned to room 21 at the hostel so i searched for room 21 and move my luggages in. Here and behold three guys are already staying in room 21, so i greeted them and introduced myself as a new student that will be joining them in staying together. They all welcome me and showed me my bed and a place to keep my luggages.

I arranged my things and the night came and i couldn't sleep because i was not feeling comfortable sleeping with strangers so i operate my phone till day break.

Episode 4: day two
It was pass 6am i woke one of my roommate sleeping next to me and pleaded with him to lead me to a place where i can get water to take my bathe because my lectures commence  8:30am daily. 
Two of them carried a bucket each and went along with me, i thought the place to get water is closed by, not knowing it a far place. we keep walking and walking, in my heart i was a bit scared because i don't know any of these guys. 
Eventually we got there and luckily enough to get water and returned back to the hostel.
I quickly turned my water into a bathing bucket and went straight into the bathroom to wash myself. After bathing, i took my breakfast and went to the lecture hall, i got to the lecture hall around 7:30 and met few students in the class who are also waiting for the lecture to start.

Episode 5
The lecturer came in around 8:35am and started lecturing us. The lecture room was boring, silent and i was feeling sleepy. I couldn't grab nor understand anything that the lecturer was teaching, all i know i did was warming the chair till the first lecture ends. 
Now it 10:30 am for the second lecture, The lecturer couldn't come on time, she came quarter to 12:00am and gave an assignment which is to be submitted in her next class and left.

Episode 6
Now it 12:30 pm time for break, i went outside and bought kunu and buns to sustain myself before the third class. After buying, i went back to the lecture room to take my appetizer. I finished eating and the third lecturer also came and start lecturing us, still i couldn't grab anything till he finished and left. 
I went back to the hostel feeling tired, hungry and worried that i can't even attempt changing my wears. I picked up my phone and called my mom i asked her to remember me in her prayers because campus life is not easy. 
She said to me my son nothing good comes easily, all those graduates on Corper uniform also passes through what am facing right now. She urge and encourage me to be focus that it a matter of time, "i will adapt to campus life" and ended the call.

Campus day one and two is a true life story about myself, this story tells how my two days went in campus.
