Im not joking! If you want to know why, follow my argument;

I'm about to be real with y'all...I simply believe education is no longer enough to determine how successful people become these days. I gree, in the days of our fathers, immediately they finish Uni, na for NYSC camp dem dey recruit them, some dont even need to go to Uni, they just have to write WAEC and thats IT!

Nowawadays its not the same.

We go pre-nursery school (akara school),nursery school, primary school,secondary school write WAEC, NECO, SAT , TOEFL, JAMB some people even write PRE DEGREE Exams! We go to Uni of which if you're lucky to pass the Jamb sef u will attend a Nigerian Federal Uni, if you get to study the course of your dreams you are indeed blessed! Some shouldhavebeen doctors end up studying Fine Art or Geography! However if your parents have a little extra cash to spend, you will attend a private University where you will spend most of your parents savings in that Institution, those wit loaded parents who have good jobs or access to loans will travel to obodo oyibo...(we all know say some of us na community sponsor us go school).

After writing all your Uni exams and project/dissertation and struggling to come out with what ever degree /result you can possibly get, you will then be forced to do that NYSC of which till date I think the purpose has been defeated. The government sends you to places where even okada no go fit reach, where nepa no dey or telephone connection. They send you to schools to teach where they have failed to provide qualified teachers and they pay you peanuts! seriously! peanuts!

If you are well connected, you will divert your service to 'town' where at least you can have some civilization. If you are lucky you will serve in a place that has to do with what you studied. After you have wasted 1 whole year of your precious life, if you are lucky you will be retained. However we know most companies will not retain oh. Who no like oshofree??they would rather wait for the next batch of corpers who will work for peanuts.

If you dont get a job or you choose not to, you will FURTHER your education. Either in Nigeria or obodo oyinbo. Im trying to get somewhere. After doing your masters, graduate finish you will still fall back on looking for a job! Then, my friend is when you realise that perhaps....educaSHUN is better than educaTION. I've been applying for jobs and I dunno what im doing wrong. dem say too many graduates. dem say so many qualified candidates for the job. dem say overqualification. Howeverver the one wey dey vex me pass na "You need at least 2yrs of experience or 7 months or whatever" Are you kidding me?!!!!! I just graduated Oga, I don't have experience in my career cos NYSC post me to be secretary for one village school. Internship experience of undergrad no count??

Dem dey buy this experience for market ni? lol... so if nobody wan give me chance wetin I go do? go for Ph.d??? lol. Tufiakwa! After all these years of reading book. I believe I choose EducaSHUN right now. Skills acquisitions better pass. Talent is best. Maybe I feel this way cos im still "an applicant" lol.

Anyhow I don sha consider one job, there's a restaurant in London that just started selling Human Breast Milk Icecream Yuck!!! I know! But they need women to come and donate breast milk. I'm putting two and two together. I'm not doing badly in my chest region.  Yours truly might be'


  1. I LOVEEEEE this!!!! Very true about experience...i'm wondering why I'm in uni sef...hiss! but we gastt go school!

  2. ROTFL i read the article today o...its funny but if you think about it we consume cow milk (animal) en human milk makes no difference nah.

  3. I heard of the breastmilk ice cream thing. I no know, mehn.

    Love the new look of your blog.

  4. LOL! awww goodluck with the job search!

  5. True!
    Employers need people that can add value and unfortunately all the years we spend in school don't equip us for real life. We all just want(ed) to pass- cram, dub, 'settle', study, anything for a 2:1.
    Skill acquisition is d way oh! When I left Uni in 02, it wasn't popular to be a tailor, but that was what I wanted to do and it's been rewarding. Now, there are so many more people in the business, perhaps cos it's 'fashionable' to be in fashion, or cos there are no jobs. Find your passion, turn it into a business and you'll be good. Easy? NO! Rewarding? YES!!
    PS. I've got an electric breast pump I could donate to your new "business" lol

  6. lmaoo!!!induced lactation abi, lemme give you anoda suggestion, while you are at it, you should consider ANR too aka adult breastfeeding. Heard they pay muchos for it....just kidding...

  7. Human breastWHAT??? Is that supposed to be the gender equivalent of sperm donation? Na wah oh.

    Dear, the jobsearch thingy can be annoying jare, but God dey. If to say we had decided on educaSHUN they'll have said thats the reason *sigh*.

    Thank's for stoppin by at my e-crib, i'll def be back here.

  8. now,breast milk don turn ice-cream abi what dem wan use the breast milk do.

    All the best in the job search, God will provide a good one.
