Musings About My Nysc Camp ย Experience (Episode 2)

I know this blog post is the highest requested post (wears dark shades) ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜‚. Even my mom read episode 1 and said she couldn’t wait for episode 2. Lol hey mom ๐Ÿ˜˜. 

I should have done this post last week but life got in the way! I have so much to do,  I don’t even know how I’m writing this now, but I think part of contemplating my life is blogging and forgetting about everything else for now. 

Only difference is I’m not in school and I’m using my phone now๐Ÿ˜ญ

Sorry I kept y’all on suspense. So y’all want to know what happened when I joined the back gang ehn? Let me start from the first time I stayed at the back and I noticed the punishment had little or no effect on platoon 9b members!  

When the official Screams “Platoon 9 everybody go down” most times for no particular reason, or because we’re making a noise as usual, everybody in front squats, and people at the back just sit on the grass ๐Ÿ˜‚. When I witnessed this, Lol I was like ehen, what have I been doing since ?

So this is how you people used to do

My legs were on fire so I joined them and sat down. Lol I cannot come and die.  I was still a bit conscious because soldiers on patrol always walk in between platoons to ensure everyone complied and was quiet. But no one came! From that day,  I proposed in my heart,  I was going to stay at the back till camp ended. I thought to myself, what the point of staying in front and still get punished with everyone else, and most likely suffer more?  

Not only that, there was life at the back! I realized I was a lot happier at the back, I kept on wondering how I survived in front. There were people who made us laugh, I remember biggie, he was funny most of the time but a bit annoying ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. I think I joined the noise makers at some point when  I started meeting people ๐Ÿ˜ญ and we weren’t allowed to use our phones (although I did sometimes) but what was a girl supposed to do. I was bored

Notice how others are standing, we were under punishment here ๐Ÿ˜‚

I met Folusho, Queenette, Jack, Josh, Lolu, Godfrey and wale. They became my official camp squad’ish kinda, and I met a bunch of other people too. Second week of camp became less overbearing although the lectures increased, it was  a lot  easier to cope because I had learned the skill of sleeping during the morning sessions ๐Ÿ˜‚, not everytime, but most times ๐Ÿ˜ญ.  Can’t blame me, I’m always very sleepy every morning because I was tired. After  two weeks in camp,  I went from ” I can’t wait to go home to mahn,  I’m going to miss camp and everyone lol. This sudden bitter sweet feeling rushed over me (that’s a story for another day! 

Backwards to a few days after I moved to the back, I met a boy. Haha, just when I was thinking “maybe my husband is not in camp,” at least I reasoned that in my head. I had heard stories about how people meet their life partners in camp, you know all those stories about camp love ๐Ÿ˜€. I think someone even told me to be open minded ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚. I look back today and laugh at myself!  Fifi smh. There was a bit of chemistry I think, he was kinda cute, at least to me ๐Ÿ˜’. Mummy are you still reading?  ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

I think I should stop here, more to come on episode 3. Haha!  I’d like to hear your feedback. Thanks for all your comments in the last one.
