Don’t be scared, take a moment to reflect on just how far you’ve come.

1. Your mom is usually right

You could have a difference of opinion, but in the end, you know you should have listened to mother. Next time you’re home to visit – try thanking her.

2. Don’t join any group or society that derails you or doesn’t bring out the best in you.

3. Being lonely is okay, and it is necessary

It’s important to be alone and know how to live with it. In the end you’ll learn a lot about yourself and it’ll make spending time with new found friends much more enjoyable.

4. Laundry should get done more than once a month

Don’t be lazy and wash your clothes regularly. Not only is it hygienic, but then you’ll always have your favourite clothess clean and ready to wear.

5. It’s okay to treat yourself, even when you don’t think you deserve it

Sure, you didn’t do that well on your essay earlier in the week, but you still deserve that pizza, hotdog, etc. Treat yourself.

6. Cereal is a snack – not a meal

Make proper meals that aren’t 70% milk. For instance, these super-quick, healthy pancakes, fried plantain, yummy pasta, etc.

7. That overwhelming feeling of worry? Welcome to the world of anxiety!

Now the next step is learning how to channel and handle that anxiety. Doing things such as exercising, meditating and even washing dishes can help take your mind off whatever’s worrying you.

8. Abstain from sex

It’s important and safe to abstain from sex to prevent sexually transmitted diseases as well as pregnancy – really, don’t take any chances.

9. Exercise and eating right are important

Start with little changes such as swapping that chocolate bar for a banana instead, and the rest should follow naturally.

Remember, it’s not so much about looking good as feeling good.

10. You will meet loads of more interesting people throughout the year.

11. Be kind to others

Always be kind to others – sit beside someone sitting alone in a lecture, who know’s they might end up becoming your best friend?

12. You probably can’t handle yourself just yet.

13. Taking time for yourself is essential

Even if it’s 10 minutes a day – read a book, give yourself a face mask, or write in your journal. Taking time to enjoy being with yourself is important for your mental health.

14. Saving money is hard… but worth it

Even if it’s just 20 nairas a day, on a good day, you’ll be surprised at how much you’ll end up with over time.

Plus it means you can buy something special or have a bit of extra cash for that holiday you’ve dreamt of for so long.

15. Ensure that you look good no matter what you have, and don’t try to copy others.

16. Keeping up with your loved ones back home is essential

Whether it’s giving them a call or even tagging them in a funny meme, let them know you’re thinking of them.

17. And remember, ALWAYS…

Mistakes happen, hard days are inevitable, and things gets weird; but just remember three words: life goes on.
