    Your favotire SDNer is reaching you from Lagos, Nigeria. I had to battle my way through entire tribes of head hunters to reach the internet. I know I risked my life but my SDN peeps are well worth it. Besides, we're all gonna die someday anyway <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" /> --(j/k).

    I spent all day yesterday in the Netherlands roaming the streets of Amsterdam. The people there are beautiful and the food was goooood. In anycase I'm happy to be a part of the hussle and bustle of Lagos. How many times do you get to see an adult bust another in the lip for stepping on him and refusing to apologize? Definitelty good stuff :D .

    I'll be going to Ilorin tomorrow. It's a 4 hr drive from the "city of much action" (Lagos). I'll be back in the states after the 1st week of April. No books allowed. I've got a nice camera and I've got my mouth as well. Here's to running my mouth :cool: If I don't come back, I'll miss you guys alot. SDN is great!!!
    I love my SDN <img border="0" alt="[Lovey]" title="" src="graemlins/lovey.gif" />

    You are now officially jobless. Are you at home or at one of those Nigerian "internet cafe's"?

    Hey Original,
    How now? Lagos? Hmph! At least I'm not in 1000 degree weather or breathing in horrible polluted air and dealing with all the hustle and bustle and madness.

    <img border="0" alt="[Pity]" title="" src="graemlins/pity.gif" />

    Okay, okay so I'm jealous :rolleyes: but that's okay, I'll live (barely) :D . If I ever make it through this MedSchool process in one bit, I'll be there too at some point!

    awright, just had to check in when I saw the topic. Have oodles of fun (some for me too) and stay safe.

    Original, I once got into a fight with a guy because he wasn't watching where he was going and ran into me. What can I say, I was a high schooler! Anyway, sounds like you are having an amazing time...take care and have fun!

    Original,

    Are you one of those ajebuta boys whose parents are mad rich(government officials-who steal from the poor to give to the rich), live in those 300 acre houses/mansions and can afford to go to Nigeria/London three times a year for no apparent reason(other than to show off what their money can buy/get them)? I know people like that....that's why I am asking!!!

    I'll be going to Nigeria in June too. I haven't been there in 4 years, I'm looking forward to it. <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" />
    Hey Original, did you meet a second year student called Omoniyi when you interviewed at Wash U. I had breakfast with him. I thought it was nice that they matched me up with a Nigerian.
    The freakiest one is the Jefferson interveiw. My student interviewer speaks Igbo (my language).

    I've never been outside of Canada or the US... :) I feel so very unsophisticated now. :p

    Anyway, have a great time in Nigeria. Maybe, with a minor miracle, I'll meet you at Durham in the fall!! :)

    It is nice to know that I there are a number of Nigerians who post on this board. I was supposed to be going to Nigera in April but my mother fell sick so I may have to push it to next year. I have been there about 5 times but was born in the US. I always have a great time when I go. I miss my family that is there like crazy. They live in Akwa Ibom State so I spend most of my time in Uyo or Calabar when I go. Are there any Ibibio folks out there? I tell you, Nigerians ALWAYS represent!!! <img border="0" alt="[Clappy]" title="" src="graemlins/clappy.gif" />

Our computer in Ilorin was too F'ing slow, so I didn't even try. My dad fixed it at 4:00am this morning after I threatened him that I'll go to Lagos :D . When I posted it was about 4:00pm. Now it's 6:00am in the morning (~7hr time diff).

They stay far from that sh!t. My pop's a struggling physician, and my mom's a nurse turned farmer turned globe-trotter <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" /> . I really wish someone'll put a stop to the corporate looting in Nigeria. A few with 55 room mansions and $15 billion in a Swiss bank; and the common man can't get good food and a decent roof over his head. Very selfish :( That said, I travelled abroad every summer through highschool :D .

    I'm sorry to hear that. I just pulled up your recent postings to see what their decision was. Duke's loss for real! I was looking forward to us being classmates.

    I'm back! I have 100 megavolts of potential stress piled up and laughing wickedly while waiting to unleash itself on me. My trip was very interesting. Nigeria is full of surprises. You just never know what the he11 will happen.

    Brando,
    Whatever you decide, I'm certain you'll do fine. UManitoba now or reapply MSTPs for next cycle. Whatever you decide, just keep in touch. I spoke with my Grand praire Alberta uncle and he got very defensive about the place <img border="0" alt="[Laughy]" title="" src="graemlins/laughy.gif" /> I told him I heard the 411 from an SDN crime partner. He's in Nigeria now with his family.

    Wow - I didn't know there are so many Nigerian SDNers (but come to think of it, we're everywhere!).

    I'm so jealous of the ones that have been to Nigeria recently. I haven't been there since I left as a wee child (almost 20 years, boo hoo).

    Are there any Yorubas out there?
    :p

    Its ok, I dont get to go back often, my family is full of a bunch of nomads, and I was forced to live with them:(

    I'm not Yoruba, I'm Igbo, but I understand a lil Yoruba, and have many Yoruba friends :)

    Hey, I am not from Nigeria but I lived right near there 10 years ago...Liberia. A lot of my family are from Nigeria and I speak a little Igbo. I am happy to see that there are a good bit of West Africans on this site. We need to stay in touch with one another.

    Hey Chieka...my sister has the same name, very unique name.

    Hi everybody. And to the Igbo people, ke kwanu? I'm waiting for interviews right now. Good luck to all of you! (especially abiff on the MCAT--make sure you eat before the test & bring a lunch that won't leave you hungry for the rest of the day) ;)

    Lotanna:

    Yay - there are some Yoruba SDNers! All is well with the world - Ini mi dun. Oruko me: a very bad, but literal English translation: "Mushroom is enough to lick you." That's what my bro calls me. :p

    Very cryptic, eh? Do you get it? Don't think too hard now.

    C.

    P.S. to Raptor: Chieka is not my real name - I made it up for internet purposes. I wanted Chicka, but that was taken. I realize that Chieka bears some semblance to the Ibo names, right? Is that what you are?
