Almost every student has a mixed reaction when they’re asked about vacations. On one hand, they’re glad the hectic lectures and stressful exams are over and on the other hand, they really have to go and deal with their family back at home. In the University, you’re in your own small world with the family your school/hall gave you. Going home can become a foreign concept to many and so some people even end up paying for a short stay on campus while the school is on vacation.
We asked a number of students what they dreaded the most about going back home for vacation and this is what they had to say.
1. Rina, 25 years
If I’m being honest, its really just about pounding fufu. I hate that activity with everything in me but I like food. When I go home, I can’t say I won’t pound so I try to find a lot of excuses not to do it.
2. Baaba, 28 years
I really hated the chores waiting for me. I’m the last baby in my family so it is work nkoaa for me.
3. Yaa, 23 years
Where do I start from? Annoying brothers, no privacy AT ALL and the worst of the bunch, cooking ALL the time. I like cooking oo but chale chale. I cannot deal.
4. Naa, 22 years
The major thing for me is the disturbance from parents. You can’t do anything without them shouting at you about how wrong you’ve done whatever. I’m already exhausted in advance.
5. Abena, 24 years
One of the things I hate about being home is the fact that my parents start freaking out when I’m out and it’s 9 pm. Just 9 pm. As if I’ve not done worse on campus.
6. Adwoa, 21 years
The nagging chale. Every small thing is a case. Also, having to wake up early even when I have nothing to do because apparently, “it’s the right thing to do”.
