Guys finally I made it here. Yesss I made it! So, I think I can share my experience with you guys about this whole journey and learn a few things too.
I will be leaving out some key feature because I wouldn’t want to disclose my identity at the moment, because I would be sharing a whole lot of information as they are but without my identity. I hope you guys understand.
Feel free to ask me question. if I know I will answer, but if I don’t. I no sabi be that oo!
You can call me Highwave
This was the beginning of my struggle having to do this on my own with little resources and you know nobody believes in it if you do not believe. I vividly remember, when I told my dad that I was applying to school, he was happy with it and all but I know man will do all this application himself lol.
Finally, I met someone on here and we started this application together, let’s give her a name Baby Blue. I started application with baby blue because I was looking at changing my course from a particular field to the another and luckily for me, my course is a double honor course. We didn’t have the best grade but it was sufficient for applications.
I mostly searched for Graduate courses while she searched for Bachelor’s and Graduate courses. We had our loses with some rejections finally, admission came and definitely we couldn’t go to the same school because of the difference in interest. But she fine small sha and I was interested in the bobby (OMG the thing big) just so you know I am a boobs guy... i like am pass anything.

100 days In Germany. Kai! He no easy
I did my interview in mid 2019, as usual with no means of sustenance yet. I almost gave up I have the best mum in the world, she gave me courage when I had none. The interview went smooth. No hard questions asked and this made me easy up a bit on that day.
The VO wasn’t quite accommodating at first but I just concluded she was doing her job, plus she made a lot of jokes and the end and she told me to provide my means of sustenance asap. After 23days I got my AM, i was inside keke sweating when the mail entered, abeg why I no go know say na AM naah (Every mail be like AM).. Something wey I don dey expect 24Hrs after interview. Those days weren’t easy, all manners of crazy thoughts to rejection and all. I called a few people and told them about it and most importantly the beautiful people I have in my life at that moment. Fast forward to when I was sourcing for my means of sustenance money no gree complete and as at that time I was told to show proof of 8k+, na that time I know say even 20k be like 20M. First AM came about 20+ days I still couldn’t fund plus I was expecting my BA to drop from my sponsor, crazy days mehn… I no go fit sleep..
After about 1 month, of not funding I got another AM with deadline to fund. Na panic mode don set, but money don almost drop for BA sha. The money came I still have a few thousands to put together (Kasala don finally burst, Man no dey go Germany again.). At the end, I had to opt for the other method, we plenty wey we dey this lane sha (SL way), I was lucky to have met someone who didn’t scam me but the cost thick gan sha, and my padi like money like say him kidney day my hand when I never balance am.

Just like yesterday, I have spent 3 months here, pheew! He no easy..
Finally I got the means of sustenance and I was hoping I would get the visa like a few other people that used the same style as me (You know) but it took
days and every single day looked like a month in my eyes. I didn’t know what to do! I was already looking at another country (shey my own never spoil like
this ). I had this reason best know to me because I was going to lose at both end, having left something vital for this journey. it took about 30+ days
before I finally got a call from them to come pick up my visa or it would be sent through the courier. Mehn, I chose to pick it up oo.
Bath I no bath (plus who dey bath for this kind thing self), I got to the embassy and as usual our oga at the door. Why are you here? I was asked to come
pick up visa. Are you sure? That’s how you people will come here and say that, don’t waste my time oo. In my mind I am like Baba oro yi poor, go and
bring my visa lemme go jhoor before they change their mind lol.
He kept using me to talk and to his colleague and advising, alayee keep your advice jhaare, not now! Lemme see my visa first. Wetin burst my head
pass, was when he was talking about people who their application was rejected and said maybe it’s from God. God Bawo? That’s it’s not by force to
Well, he decided to go inside and ask them, after hours of sitting down and he came outside empty handed. i didn’t know what was going on again naah,
shebi na them call me, only for Mr to pick up my package from a basket under his seat. After all it has been there for a very long time (When him go dey
talk too much).
I got to the park opened the package and saw the stamp, called a few people and I slept like a baby that night after months of sleepless night

So back to my story, So it took me about two (2) days to pack everything, bought different bags they weren't big enough. Kai! Local man waste money for bag ehn and the i finally booked online to travel four (4) later a day to my mum's birthday. She already told me to travel after her birthday but you know i was doing strong head. i booked on a Friday to travel on Monday. The whole day i didn't get a reply from the airline, well i thought i still had two (2) more days before travel date, Saturday came nothing, Sunday! obviously they don't work. So on Monday i called them and asked but unfortunately, there was public holiday for two days. I sha had to stay for the birthday i didn't want to stay plus one extra day at home.
Then i went to the office very early to clarify why i wasn't booked to travel 2 days ago and i was told they didn't get my payment on time so it could not be booked. i wish i could share pictures of the food and all but my brain wasn't booting because i was so tired to remember i had a phone self.

Port of Entry
This was one of the easiest thing for me, after spending about 6 hours layover. i got to the airport and as usual i thought it was the start of discrimination but to my amazement, i noticed i was placed on a a special line with special people and everybody on the line had foreign passports like me but unfortunately for them, there were more foreigners that day and they had to reshuffle back to other lines.
So i got to the counter, i was asked for my passport and a few questions like how much i had with me, my intended school and course of study then i proceeded to pick up my bag that has been circling for the past hour or so. Now the big issue came, how do i get my bag to the train station?
I was looking so hungry and tired, i finally summoned the courage to meet an airport official about getting a trolley for my load. Luckily for me i was giving a coin for my trolley , God bless that man! He didn't think twice before giving me his special coin!
Train cost die i wanted to cry but the Winter humbled me that day.. I was so cold that i could pay double . I didn't pay for my my first train from the airport to the central station but i was so scared because i have heard of crazy stories of how people get fined for not paying.
