ASUU Strike Sucks But Here’s What You Can Do To Make The Time Count

March 9, 2020

If you’re studying at a public Nigerian university, you won’t find news about ASUU strikes like this strange.

We all know what’s up whenever this guy is involved.

It’s almost like the association exists to impede graduation plans.

But of course, there are reactions like this.

Warning strike, but we know an indefinite strike is brewing.

And if you’re not one of these people, you should be concerned.

Well, we’re here for you and we recommend that you should consider the following as you wait for resumption:

Take studying up a notch

We’ve all been at that stage where we pray for a strike to delay the school calendar, especially when exams are approaching and we aren’t prepared in the least. If this is you right now, you might want to cover as much schoolwork as you can in this period.

Read that book or watch that show

Twitter can be addictive but it doesn’t count as a reading activity. But you know what does? That book that has been sitting in your library, waiting for you to get to them.

Also, you can take breaks in-between and watch the TV show you’ve been wanting to see. No one will judge you.

Get started on learning that skill

Now that you have some time on your hands, you should consider dedicating some of it to learning the skill you feel strongly about. You won’t become a master at it in two weeks, but the idea is to get started.

Attend to anything else you’ve been procrastinating on

It’s hard to get a grip of everything, especially when you’re in school, making it easy to procrastinate. Now that you’ve gotten some time off school, why don’t you clear some of them off your to-do list?
