FUNNY BUT VERY TRUE !!!
.
1. Remember Further Maths (aka Additional Mathematics) ???
They warned you that it'd be tough so you committed to listening attentively from the very beginning...
.
2. ...things started very well. 2a+8a = 10a. Easy beans. You are happy. This thing is not so hard. You are following it. Very happy.
.
3. Then slowly, you don't see any number again, just letters fighting Jackie Chan on the board; Sin 0/Cos 0 = A/Bx find x.... ahan. You vexed!
.
4. You went back to your note, & started thinking, "at what point did I miss it? Why did the teacher eliminate numbers? Why is "x" important?"
.
5. You say ok, may be it is just this part. Then the teacher goes, find x if α%¤< + & @%β^ = &^^# x.
.
6. In your head, you are thinking, "how can you tell me to find x when I can't even find all the things surrounding x?"
.
7. At that point, you start to dream about your blessed and assured "F" in WAEC. To avoid it, you look for a friend to explain better to you.
.
8. This time, you didn't even look for the girl you were tripping for to come teach you because this time...u really want to learn
.
9. You remember your parents, the school fees and the "F" you were already dreaming about. You didn't fool yourself. You looked for your guy.
.
10. You even bought that expensive Further Maths text book. That one where after page one, everything else is written in tongues.
.
11. You bought rechargeable lamp. Called your mum to bring more provisions because "I now read at night and I get hungry"
.
12. You mean business. You want to know how ordinary numbers suddenly changed to Chinese language before your eyes.
.
13. You friend is even kind. He started with BODMAS. He makes you understand nothing in Further Maths is beyond BODMAS. You are happy. Easy.
.
14. After two hours of learning, you got everything. Your friend should be a teacher you thought. He teaches better. Wow! You feel really good!
.
15. Back in the hostel alone, you picked two easy "problems," did wuru wuru to the answer. You checked the back for answer. Yay! You gorrit!
.
16. Back in class, the teacher is not even writing letters that you know again, he has gone Greek on you. Tetha, Beta, Alpha...argh!
.
17. As if that wasn't evil enough, he combines them, "tan tetha" "cos tetha" and he draws one snake that look like _
S_ like this... habaaaaa, they are even involving names of God, tan_Chi, alpha, sin oghene..hmmmm...!!!
.
18. That was the point the "F" in your dream became flesh and formed tears on your face. You must call mummy. You know that.
.
19. Then something in you said, don't call her. She will think you are an _
Olodo*_ if you don't do "Science class". So you didn't bother.
.
20. You simply just gave yourself brain. Ran faster than light to see what was happening in Art Class
.
21. They were teaching them "the Macpherson constitution" and what made the "Clifford constitution" different.
.
22. Then they spoke about the "Motion for Independence" and the "1979 constitution." You felt at home.
.
23. Next day, you take the Further Maths text books and all the big books like it, over to CMS. Sell them all !!!
LOLzzz !
.
24. This is a true life story of real people who were really brilliant but had no business in "Science Class" but "had" to be there... just to form Alagbará
.
25. Society insists; smart people are in Science Class. The others join Art Class. This is tragic and really this ought to stop soon!
.
26. There are no dumb people. You are smart at what you thrive at and most of us thrive at something...
.
27. That I can't thrive at what you thrive at doesn't make me dumb. Usain Bolt will outrun LeBron James on the track. But in B'Ball
? ..James wins !
.
28. To this day, some of you still judge yourself based on what your friends are achieving. Please, judge yourself against yourself alone!
.
30. Don't make your life like football leagues where you check on the results of others to feel better.
