Two years from then you’ll be here typing this.You’ll be thinking of what to tell your 19 year old self,and what to hide.But truth is you are proud of being now and would just really love to give your then a few tips.You’d tell him;
You’ve just finished high school.It was some 4 years of your best lifetime,you’ll treasure some of the relationships you built over the period.In fact,the strongest of them will directly influence the large chunk of your 20 year old self.Two of the relations will go on to prove a detriment to your present self.But don’t worry,looking at the greater picture they’re for the greater good.
Oh ! and don’t worry about the exam,you’ll pass. In fact,that moment you get notified,you’ll get your most amazing 30 seconds of your lifetime.It was a fight well done,but the war is not yet over.The greatest challenge is yet to come-The university.
Your high school dream will be accomplished ( or you think will be) when you set foot at the university doors.Shock is something you should learn to counter-you’ll get hordes of them.Yes,you’ll step foot onto the university but the unprecedented challenges will force you to step back for a while.You will make great friends.YOU’ll have fun.You’ll enjoy the whole time though you’ll be having spasms of sadness,longing,troubles and relationship hurdles.
You’ll be forced to defer your studies.The government will know you are dependent on them,just like your father,they will disappoint.You will hate everyone else,apart from yourself. Don’t they know you want to study ?
But don’t lose hope yet.God has his ways.You’ll do just fine though the time after will be the trickiest,most demanding time of your life.
You’ll make the worst mistakes,and the best decisions in equal measure,in whole of your lifetime.You’ll learn from some and not see sense in some of the mistakes.You’ll have to make choices and life changing decisions whereas most times instinct will play its part driving to some of your most devisive choices.
Advice dear,live life,smile often,work hard and smart,dream big and push the limits.
your 21 year old self.
