Ladies and gentlemen it’s that time of the year again. No, not the time when pregnancy rates skyrocket among teenage girls, you’re thinking of February 14th. It’s the time for giving and receiving (mostly receiving), it’s that time of the year when we undertake to share Christmas cheer with those dear to us as 2017 comes to an end and we meditate on our life choices especially the many unfulfilled New Year resolutions.
Regardless of whatever religious ideology or non-idealogy you subscribe to, the Christmas season is an eagerly anticipated part of Nigerian life. So eagerly anticipated in fact that some of our eastern brethren spend an entire year saving up just to goan ‘ball’ in the village for the last two weeks of the year. We are totally in support of this idea. Go out there and ball. Stunt on these haters. What are you waiting for? You deserve it after the hardship this country has put you through. Since you’ve been able to outsmart the village witches and have made it to another year end, it can only mean that even your ancestors are strongly in support of the massive balling that you are about to unleash, so do not hold back for anyone or anything.
However, the truth is that as one gets older the fun of the festive season unavoidably and inexplicably begins to diminish. When your Christmas wishes start to go from a new bicycle or PS4 to ‘anything but an F in Law of Trusts’ that’s when you realize how fast you are growing (and failing).
So today we shall be tapping into our divine anointing as Law students while we attempt to physically manifest our wishes, dreams and hopes for our dear Faculty of Law.
The rules are simple. You write a comment in the comments section below starting with “I wish”, then you go ahead to speak (type) life into your deepest wishes for the Faculty and your overall life as a Law student.
Eg – I wish that the Faculty stops this attendance bs in 2018. Mans must go to Law School with his set abeg.
I wish that the principalities and powers that have tied my GP down will die by fire. Rise GP, rise!
I wish that this Adedire boy will finally see me for the woman that I am. I’m tired of the friend zone lord.
I wish that my helper will finally come to the Faculty and embarrass me with money and gifts. This broke life must end in 2018.
So you get the point yeah? Keep the wishes as simple, funny, ingenious and creative as possible. And who knows? Your very own Santa Claus, Father Christmas, Daddy G.O or some incredibly wealthy member of the Faculty just might step in and change your destiny. Or not.
Check your internet connection (Glo users), drop your comment(s), sit back, relax and enjoy. Your wish just might come true today✌
