Life in Jozi


I had my first exam of five today. It went so-so. I just hope I passed coz I so do not want to repeat this module. Whoever coined distance education anyway? Some of us are so not suited to it. We need lectures (to bunk) and lecturers to swot off of! This first paper was software project management and on Friday I have human-computer interaction. so I’m off to cram a year’s worth of studying into less than two days; wish me luck!

And I lost my phone… or it got nabbed from my bag I am unsure as to what happened exactly. The most flabbergasting thing about it though is that Nya got mugged about the same time and her phone and some money was taken. What is the probability of that happening anywhere in the world we were practically on the same street and 5 minutes from meeting each other and what do u know we no longer had our phones when we met. That’s a random thing for you and just a reminder for me to be more careful in Jozi.

I remember my response to Nya’s tale. The muggers told her to give them her phone and money else they’d shoot her… in broad daylight in the middle of a busy street with policemen across the road on the other side! Which she did and they were kind enough to give her her SIM card back as well as some bus fare!!! Now I am a “confronter” when adrenalin comes I am a ‘fighter’ and not a ‘flighter’ so i would have so screamed and made a fuss and been so angry and probably challenged them or done something equally stupid. Not what they teach is self-defence I know but hey that’s my physiology. When the adrenalin hits i can’t stop myself from being aggro back! So I gotta learn otherwise now that I live in Jozi.

Enough procrastinating now it’s time to study!!!!!!
