Five moments that a campus guy can't resist

By mutemi andrew | December 4th 2016

We go to campus with full of expectations ready to be in a new heaven as many view it when they get their admission message after high school. Who told you campus is heaven? I guess someone must have planted wrong perspective about campus when they say that campus is place to be. Have you ever had a prior discussion about campus with that only boy in your village who comes home for holiday with a black suit and new hair style for am sure this is the best way you to identify a campus guy in your village.

When we get our KCSE results and by a good luck we happen to have met the cut points needed to join university, things change. We get satisfied of the stories that we have been hearing in high school whenever a motivational speaker from university comes to encourage us to work hard. We heard of the place of freedom, place to meet most beautiful angels of the world, lectures being optional and many other sweet phrases to hear. It is very true for the stated facts but never forget the say, when the deal is too good think twice. Nothing in the world lacks its negative side but we forget this one and we be like, “why should I consult to know? Let me go and feel it myself.”

We meet all what we used to hear but here the question of self-esteem is highly needed. For the first weeks of the semester seems to be very friendly to us with some cash in our pockets and many classes bouncing. It comes another time when the semester turns to be wild and not motherly anymore. This is when you come to understand even the “Goliaths” of the campus there is certain moments which they hold no power to resist or to discuss about. The following are the hardest moments which campus guy can’t resist whatsoever.

1] Escort me to M-PESA

This is one of the hardest moment which no guy in campus will hold a discussion on whether to accompany you or not. When you get such request the answer comes automatic without more questions on what to do in M-PESA, may it to buy credit, replace a line or withdraw some cash, none of his business the answer is always the same “TWENDE” since it viewed that M-PESA is the major source of money in campus.

2] Postponing of CAT

Continuous Assessment Tests [CATs] are very embarrassing and guys prepare for them in last minutes. When CAT is stated to be at 10:00 am in the morning, at 9:00 am is when you start getting some WhatsApp texts from your friends “ukona notes za Mes 311 nikujie?” little for them to know that you have sent the same text to ten different course mates. This is when all people become Christians and believers only to hear from class rep that the cat has been postponed to next week.

3] Join me for super

This is among the best statements a campus guy will want to hear every day. I don’t know why they hate cooking in their rooms but I understand men are not friend of water and getting appointment for super saves one from washing utensils and also saves money that you could spend to buy preparations for the same.

4] “Unadai form”

This is commonly used on Fridays when guys finish lessons and feel like to bless the week in clubs for some drinks. It’s Friday and you are in your room formless with no cent in your pocket and you Friend texts you that “kuja nikuchoree fom nikona mziga kwa meza” it is when you will know time wastage is poison in some moments.

5] Come for sleepover

Have you ever been in a situation when the weather is mild with a freezing coldness and you are in your bed covering yourself with that light blanket of yours and you see a call on your helpless phone which has been useless for a whole week due to lack of credit. Your campus girl calls you to spend night with her in her hostel, this is when you feel as if garden of Aden is back and you immediately rush for sleepover.
