In life, there are moments we are faced with difficult situations with the sole aim of surviving hoping there will be light at the end of such circumstance..

Mine: it happened when I was I part 2 second semester, it was close to end of semester and there was no cash on me, no gas in my cylinder and I had to eat that night .... i had to Cook 'Eba' with normal water, ate with Palm oil sprinkled with salt.. imo that night bad gaaan....

So over to you guys, what Is the weirdest thing u have done to survive?

mine was during my ND last semester. you know how project supervisors will just keep calculating all the offenses you committed until you jam them during your last project.
This particular lecturer kept I and my group in school till even our last exam.By then money was now an alien to me and my roomie. So one babe just dash us rice and small condiment to arrange it, but unfortunately we had just 2 sachets of water and about 3 cup of water (was not neat O).
we just decided to manage it like that.As we just put the rice on the fire ,environment just changed and it started raining ooo, my roomie without thinking twice just threw away the remaining water (not neat).
unfortunately and regrettably, just as he was about putting the bucket to fetch some good water na, The rain stopped immediately. we had no other choice but to eat the semi-cooked rice like that.

was coming back to school at Ebonyi state, got to Enugu, it became very late, no bus to take us to Iza our destination, I and my friend went to the police station to sleep till early morning, the police men ask us if there station was a hotel, finally they asked us to pay for the night like 10k each, I left there with my friend, saw some ladies who were go for a vigil in the church, we joined them pretending that we where looking for there church, guess what guys, when we got there and the prayers was going on, we where busy snoring on a bench in the church, immediately it became around 4an in the morning, we sneaked out of the church to catch the first bus, it was funny though but I never forget the experience.

Lol.

I've done lots of things oh.

Weirdest food I've eaten to survive: Garri 3x for 1 week. I've also used palm oil, salt and fresh pepper as soup to eat eba.

Weird job I've done for money: Conductor, Laybuke(Serving a brick layer). Funny enough did all this when I was below 16.

Stupid 'est' decision I've made to survive: Beg online for money, happened in 2017 when I was in 200L. I still regret it whenever I think of it.

Worse thing I've done to survive: Skip one semester of school to go learn Yahoo. LOL. Stupid young Me grin, abandoning a 4.51cgpa to go learn fraud.


That's all I think!

Did yahoo pay? No

Do I have regrets? Yes!

Did I survive? Yes!

Did life get better? 1000×

Will I do them again? Yes!







Survival is a must!

The things I've done to survive.

They are too many to count. Some of which I will definitely take to my grave.

I practically survived through street.

Street is military but it will never let you die.

Ate one loaf of bread for three days while in 200L in school. The painful part is that I didn't know I had 10k in my account all through the days I was eating bread and taking water for 3days.
