Hello friends! How's it been? I know I've been inactive in publishing new posts for a while now... My apologies.
I really have missed you guys, I must admit... I appreciate all of you who kept on sending me emails to check on me. Thank you! And those who kept reading and commenting on previous posts... Thank you. I will not also forget the new blog followers, Thank you. Barr. Frances Okoro thank you so much for your sincere love and thoughtfulness.
I must confess... People who go to university are incredible! We go to classes. We read and absorb and are comprehensively tested on heavy amounts of various materials. We sleep very little. We party too much. Someone is always sick. Someone is always complaining. We become attached to close friends. We smother each other. We lean too much. We think often of the past and want to go back. We know we cannot.
We all have separate lives, families, backgrounds and pasts. We live totally different from how we used to live. We are frustrated and sometimes want to give up... Peggy once told me that she felt like dropping out, oh I felt and thought same too, but we never stop trying. We disregard health. We eat awful foods. We are forced to think about the future. We are scared and confused. We reach out for things, yet we don't find them. We try to sort out our minds, which are filled with studies, worries, problems, memories, emotions -- powerful feelings. We wander the halls looking for happiness. We hurt...a lot.
We keep going, though, because above all else, we never stop learning, growing, changing, and most importantly dreaming. Dreams keep us going and they always will. All we can do is be thankful that we have something to hold onto, like dreams and each other.
This is for all who passed through university, and those still in it!
