What a transition!
On the 31st of January, we were welcomed as official students of the University of the Witswaterand Johannesburg. I have been counting down the days since tenth grade. I am really excited about this. I knew it was time to put on my big girl pants, but also to keep those on ( if you know what i mean) .It is really a huge step , from high school to the “real world “. It really is a huge learning curve ,in both social and academic ways. From comfortable romance , to akward interactions. Heres what has been on offer.
Ooh la la❤
Okay , so just a few days before Valentines i had already celebrated it. I had my doze of chocolate treats, and a bit of candy from “him”. Chocolate is what he is. Sweet, mysterious, smooth ( haha, his words) , but a lovely treat all in all. A taste that never gets old. He gave me my first kiss, and i probably gave him his worst. It felt like I’ve been with him for forever. In this case, forever was just a couple of blissful moments…
So its been orientation week , and there’s been a lot of uhm orientating. They gave us a tour of the school, we played , sang , danced, TALKED , a lot . That is exhausting, especially after the long January break spent in solitude…
On the 2nd of February, i got a very different birthday present. Something that just speedily maximised my “people skills”. I was dumped. I really wanted to be angry. I couldn’t. I understood why , i know why. Matters of the heart are questionable. The following day was my birthday and regardless of that i knew it had to be awesome.
What a day that was! Iwoke up to tens of birthday wishes, some very cliché, but it cheered me up. Some of them made me cry, and some i was caught up in moments of “aw”. I found myself thinking back to where in the world I’d met the people wishing me these fortunes. Like , do i even know you? , but well i guess i do now! In the afternoon both my devices went off, they did work more than usually. Im sure they were suprised themselves( thats if phones had sensibility) . In the afternoon i had an accident, a lady accident. This was the first time ever, but surely not the most embarrassing , i have had worse.
The real world.
I have had my fair share of the bad, but surely theres more on hand. I feel that this post is the most “snobbish ” i have ever made. The best and the worst is still yet to come. Growing up is a reality , it will happen. This is my memoir. Thank you you u for reading.
