What's up guys?
So I decided to take off few minutes to update the thread as I am beginning to settle in into my new environment.


A lot of things happened these few months I was away, and trust me, it wasn't easy but I still pulled through.

I will just highlight the things that happened and elaborate them in subsequent posts.

So, I got a full-time holiday job I did for couple of weeks, I moved out of my student dormitory and had to keep up in friends' places because it wasn't easy getting an accommodation again.
I ex-matriculated from my university and enrolled in another university( many thanks to the shallow educational background Nigeria's University gave me.)

Well in the end, I was able to get an apartment in front of my new school and I am settling in quick and recovering the study hours I had lost.

What's the update from your end guys(ladies included grin)

About my holiday job.

I was able to get a holiday job through a job agent to work at UPS logistics facility.

The working environment is just the same as described by Franknetter in his dairy.

I had to work for 8 good hours standing Monday to Friday. The section I was attached with is called the 'Outbound'. What we do basically is packaging of orders on the conveyor into cartons that fit them.
Trust me, it was hectic working in this section because my supervisor was a workaholic and he keeps saying "Schneller Schneller (faster faster), Zeit kostet geld (Time is money) ". Ah yes, do you remember my Deutsch is 'Sehr schlecht( very bad)?' Despite the fact that UPS is an American company, majority of the staff speak Deutsch and don't understand English.

I happened to be attached with a supervisor that does not understand English, so I had to improve my language skills. Many thanks to the few hours I sacrificed on DW.com, I was able to understand majority of what he was saying and right now, I can tell you that my vocabulary has improved a little, but my listening skills improved the most.
Luckily for me, there was a native English speaker in my section and he helped me with translations and even information I wasn't aware of because of the language.

Shey I said 80% of them don't understand English, and UPS being an American company, the computers were all programmed in English, that eased another part of the work for me because we had to print some stuffs from the data base. I later realized majority of them don't know what they are doing on the computer because they had just crammed what to do and don't know when there's an error in the system.

In short, I did this boring blood sucking job for couple of weeks. It was the same routine every Monday to Friday. Waking up at 5am to prepare breakfast and lunch, sometimes dinner ( there's no place to buy food around the facility, I miss Nigerian work environment for this. At least one canteen will have opened shop just because of us, or one old woman would have opened a bread and akara or beans center). Catching the bus by 7am and meeting the same set of people on the bus, heading to the store at the train station to buy Coca-Cola or yogurt, still getting to meet the same set of people in the store as well, getting to work, finishing work and getting home at 9pm.

It was so boring and it was as if I was leaving in a loop(those kind of things about studying a person routine and carrying out a robbery action or assassination is real because I lived it first hand. In fact at certain period of time, I know where we would meet red light and where we often meet green light).

Apart from being a boring job, by the time I get home, all joints would have gone separate ways. I also started having a rocky relationship with my supervisor due to many reasons.

I later resigned before the expiration of my contract because I needed to face my priority here and also get enough rest for the semester ahead.

Thanks bro. If I can vividly remember your moniker here, you were on Erasmus scholarship in Europe.

Concerning the reality falling on me. I think it is worth noting that I have been nursing this dream for several years now and I know what is obtainable there in terms of how rigorous the education system is as compared to UK, how learning and mastering the language open doors and the likes.

I wouldn't mind if you mention realities that will be falling on me so that I can be prepared and not be surprised.

You can get payment to Yankee, or Naija, from Naija to Germany. That way you are safe.

We make at least $200 weekly online here in Nigeria, if I can continue that in Germany. I will not work there... till I graduate. Anywhere you go just be smart, there is no free money anywhere.

Can you please brush me about this fivver ? I know how to toon pictures and do other graphics works, I dont know whether such services will be needed on Fivver, moreover, what type of services do offer that u earn such per week?

Hi guys, it has been a while but studying and working is a scam in Germany trust me. Those two words shouldn't be used in the same sentence at all. Except you speak German and you have a working student contract(sometimes you get this without speaking German but it's rare). Anything apart from that, trust me you're gonna be stressed.

To imagine that it is because of studies that I haven't had time to give update here oh, talkless of then combining work with it, mehnnn..

About the education here in Germany.

I really can make a conclusion now, but the problem I experienced in Nigeria is still the same thing I am experiencing here. I hardly gain anything in class.

Don't get me wrong, the lecturers understand the course well and they have the industry experience but they often have issues communicating them to me. I think this is because they prefer using German textbooks than English ones, and the German textbooks do things in a totally different and hard way I swear.

Quick example is the K-map my computer science professor often use for his exercises is so technical and different from the one's you find online.

The good part of studying here is that there is stable electricity and Internet. So even though I don't gain anything from the lectures, I often find a better explanation on YouTube.

In addition, the speed at which lecture moves here is not a joking stuff oh. My mathematics professor starts a topic and finishes within 2 hours. Imagine starting and finishing everything that has to do with Integration within 2hours.

The best part of everything is that, there is always an exercise class after each lecture. This often helps me with understanding the course well even though I don't gain anything in lectures, because this is the period when the professor shows you his approach of solving questions. It really helps more than lectures trust me.

Hi guys, it has been a while but studying and working is a scam in Germany trust me. Those two words shouldn't be used in the same sentence at all. Except you speak German and you have a working student contract(sometimes you get this without speaking German but it's rare). Anything apart from that, trust me you're gonna be stressed.

To imagine that it is because of studies that I haven't had time to give update here oh, talkless of then combining work with it, mehnnn..


I expressed my first snow after 18+ years. It came as a surprise that blessed morning sha. Everywhere just rice without stew.

You go soon graduate from unskilled to a professional job but you need one vital key and I see you are working on it: Language to a very confident level not on certificate or B1, B2 levels.

If you got IT skills, search for 1st Level,2nd Level Support job, or student jobs relating to your course of study.

Goodluck and greeting from HH wink
