So it was my first year on campus and I was really broke. What I heard is that everybody on campus is rich and fully loaded, but my own case was different. I was broke ehn…you won’t believe what brokeness led me to. Let me tell you my story.

Well, there I was spending all my N200 on super yogo and cab from campus to DLI in UNILAG.

You can say I was richly poor. I was already spending the money I didn’t have in my head. As per “undergraduate lifestyle”.

Then I noticed money started to finish

I had only one choice. I will drink water whenever I am hungry, but I will you find water when you don’t have any money. Guess what I did.

I had to go fetch water and boil it and waited for it to cool before drinking.

Eventually someone came to my rescue and dashed me money. In this life have money oooo!!!!
