Throw Back: NYSC & I
The months of 2010 made me feel like I was driving a sport car as in my opinion January, February, March, April, May and June drove so fast, July was an exception as I had the longest three weeks at the Iseyin Local Goverment of Oyo State, Nigeria. I didn't go to shoot a movie.......yeah! I was at the National Youth Service Orientation Camp.
For the First time I had a Regimented life,(Wake up everyday by 4.00am to take my bath, get escorted by the Man'o'War to the parade ground, Jog for 30mins, endure the Physical Education Exercise etc)
I thought the world had come to an end when we went for Mountaineering, but i realized I was very much awake during the Endurance Trek. Phew!
Nevertheless Oyo state camp was not so bad judging from the stories I heard about other camps, It will also interest you to know that we had socials every night, before light out, hmmm! you can imagine what went down....lol!
Even though the Drills made 3weeks feel like 3years, i have some wonderful memories, thanks to the best friends i made in camp (Ekemini Bassey, Williams, Mohammed, Malik, Calista, Victoria, Seyi, Ify, Chichi, Uncle B,Olaiytan, Bukola, Dibia, Hope,etc) My room mates also added spice to my stay in Iseyin, even though we argued at every little thing......I can't forget this experience as i never went to a boarding school.
I also came back with goodies as I won the MISS SLIM & SLEEK PAGEANT organized by MTN.
