HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOURSELF?
I love God so much and anything about God Almighty. I hate being cheated on. Am a lady that decide so fast and not going back. Am a lady of my words.
YOU IN MCSS:
I started MCSS 1992, due to some reasons I repeated JSS1, that makes me to be among the 99 set. If not I could have been in 98 set. Nevertheless I love 99 set.
After my First Leaving Class at SAINT FRANCIS PRIMARY SCHOOL, Maryland Lagos. I was given admission to MCSS.
One of the experience that amazed me most now is the man in my life (the love of my life) we were both in the same primary, secondary but fought a lot then. We Were both in the same class all through (can you imagine?) I repeated JSS 1,he was promoted, still we met back in SSS I, he repeated SS1 as if he’s waiting for me to meet again. But we didn’t notice each other. We argue and fought a lot then because is too holy for my own liking. He covers his book during exams like KILODE!!! Even in WAEC. His even regretting it now, that if he had known then, he could have written everything for me.
I remember my class In JSS3G with some guys and ladies I couldn’t remember their names, they disturbed our class a lot. SSS N class (Geography Art Class) are lovely girls and boys.
Food and Nutrition Practical aroma enticed Selense, Owolabi and co. to the window to beg for some food cooked then. I was the Food and Nutrition Prefect then. I was happy to become one of the prefect then. I love music a lot then and till now ,I and my friends copy from any music book we see, sing dance and snap a lot with student in commercial classes too. Another experience was when my uniform ,bag and textbooks were stolen by unknown student then. It was a bitter experience indeed that makes me went home with my cultural attire. My mum beat me like……
The Militia Corp was another thing on its own, led by one Commandant Yisa that almost raped me, when he call’s me to his office. That fateful day, he stylishly invited me and some girls to his house at gbagada,(we were meant to go to a general meeting that day, but to fall in, to his house and move from there) I thank God that his devilish purpose was not done on me o, he could have been the person that will deflower me but I that God I escaped stylishly.
I really Love everything about MCSS,Is it the Lesson in Mende that those tiny insect bites and gives us marks on my legs or Math’s Teacher Mr. Oni that threatened to fail me or the Two face Economics Teacher. I remembered our Geography Teacher that eat Ayu(that small smelling onion) then. I hate moving closer to him because I can’t bear the smell.
