THE DECEMBER PARTY SERIES PART I

 NEW STUDENTS PARTY, GHANA EDITION


A week before the party, Martha, Victor and I were discussing about the party at church[The Baptist Church,Engels] and I made them aware I wasn't gonna go because I would be stressed up BUT that wasn't the main reason. 
The actual reason was, I thought Victor and Benjamin wouldn't attend which will make me feel bored and alone sort of [I just wouldn't enjoy the party]. They are the peeps I feel comfortable with cos I've known them for long. 

After saying that, Martha said 'wu ky3r3 wu hu papa' ['wu ky3r3 wu hu papa' means ‘too known’ as locally known in Ghana. ‘Twi’ is the language and it is the most popular and spoken language in Ghana.]
I was like 'oh no....didn't finished my statement' then she said 'frih)' which means 'leave there'…Lol. 
I'm already in her bad books because of my attitude of always being on phone whilst being around people and friends [I do that when I feel uncomfortable or with people I rarely know] and my statement of not going worsened it. Hmmmmm
She was even supposed to give me one of our church girl's number kraaaaaa. I spoilt everything

To Martha : "It's not like that ooooooo. I just feel comfortable when Victor and Benjamin are with me. Their presence makes me feel OK wherever I find myself"

With anxiety, I started the countdown to the party. Surprisingly, the days approached faster than it should. 

DAY OF THE PARTY [3rd  DECEMBER 2016]


Woke up late as usual but there was a twist. I skipped class out of laziness and also wanted to have time for my self concerning the attire to wear. *Wanted to look exceptional*
As usual, I asked Bae [Bae is a friend I like soooooooo much. Please, don’t think far. *I AM STILL SINGLE as at the time I'm writing this*] what attire to wear. She chose one of my African Attires but I was skeptical about it cos the information I had was, THE PARTY IS A DINNER so I felt something OFFICIAL would have been the ideal outfit. I chose a white long sleeves with sea blue jeans, sent pictures and her reply was "GREATBUT I WAS STILL SKEPTICAL ABOUT IT cos I felt the color combination wasn’t right. Took my shower, got dressed up; wore my new 'kick' ๐Ÿ˜„ then waited for Victor.
Victor and I had planned to go together cos I didn’t know the place. Also, he had to go early cos of something he'd been assigned to do. He came few minutes later, Got my Jacket, met him at the bus stop and off we went. On our way, my tummy started "doing me logoligi". 
OMG ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜ฒ, IT STARTED RUMBLING.
When I woke up that morning, I was sooooooooooo hungry but I felt lazy to cook. Told Bae about it and she advised me to cook something little but I refused and jokingly said ‘I’m not gonna eat and that I’m putting my hope and ‘stomach’ on the FOOD that will be served at the party.’  
SO I DIDN'T EAT FROM MORNING TILL THAT EVENING. A BIG MISTAKE 
SHE SAID, "EI NII, YOOOOOOOOOOO" She doesn't talk much when it comes to something she tells me to do and I'm being adamant or relunctant.

When we alighted, I told Victor about my tummy rumbling and that I’d not eaten the whole day cos I’d put my hope on the food that will be served. We laughed, spoke about it [the kinda food that will be served and how we gonna devour it paaaaaaaaa] till we got to the venue. IT WAS SOOOOOOO COLD MEHN ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข
Cos of what he had been assigned, we were basically the first people to arrive [The Vice President of NUGS Saratov, Mr. Kojo and about two peeps where already there getting the place set up]. After everything was done and ready, people were still not in so we used the time to take a couple of pics. 
For me in particular, I said when lots of peeps start trooping in, I’ll be very shy so I hurriedly took lots of them. They turned out to be great pics ๐Ÿ˜—๐Ÿ˜—๐Ÿ˜— #dope

My Boss,Victor 

MEEEEEEEEEEEEE

About 10 Minutes later, peeps started trooping in and settling down. When the place got full a little bit, out of nowhere; Kojo said our sitting arrangement wasn’t right and that all the new students should sit together [I was sitting with Victor so I changed my seat to sit with the New Students]. Still Kojo wasn’t cool with it cos the guys were sitting at one side whiles the ladies were also sitting at the other end of the table. We were kinda reluctant to get mixed up so he walked over to reshuffle us once again.


Some of the New Students

OMG……..Luck wasn’t on my side at all ๐Ÿ˜“๐Ÿ˜“๐Ÿ˜“
With my tummy doing it's own thing[still rumbling], I had Queen sitting by me. It was crazy for me mehn. I just didn’t want any yawa move biaaaaaa to happen.
After our sitting arrangement was sorted out, IT WAS TIME FOR INTRODUCTION
I thought to myself "YIE, all eyes will be on ME. What if I start stuttering or make a mistake" but i consoled my self with "I AM A BIG BOY" LOL

As the norm required, we [New Students] were to start followed by the Current Students then the Executive Body. We were 9 in number and I happened to be the 8th person to introduce myself. Before it got to my turn, I had planned to be so brief then go to my seat. *"kpakpakpa movement" or "fast fast"*


Prince 2 "Sarkodie"

Deborah

Prince 1 "The Birthday Boy"










When it finally got to my turn, I walked majestically to the front in my tensed mood. 
I JUST HATED STANDING IN FRONT OF LOTS OF PEOPLE. I’M ACTUALLY THE SHY TYPE SO I GUESS MAYBE THAT WAS WHY.

Did my introduction, spoke a lil bit about my blog, DIARY OF THE LABADI BOY IN RUSSIA [Wanted to promote or hype myself small……LOL] and also answered a couple of questions [Diary of the Labadi Boy in Russia: Why I started? Whether I've written before? The Way Forward? Etc. and also How to say "What is your name?" in Russian - "ะšะฐะบ ะฒะฐั ะทะพะฒัƒั‚?" ]
Introducing myself

Talking about DIARY OF THE LABADI BOY IN RUSSIA

Still talking about Labadi Boy
After we all were done, the Current Students came to also introduce themselves. It was crazy mehn. Most of them did theirs in a funny and hilarious way but a few were serious about theirs.

FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY, It was time for interaction/socialization [NOT THE GH SOCIALIZATION TYPE WHERE SOME PEEPS WILL BE DOING "SOME WAY SOME WAY" THINGS] but I am not the sociable type.
[Debbie, at friend of Central University College, Ghana said I talk a lot but only to people I’m comfortable with and trust]. I guess it’s so then cos I didn’t feel like talking at all.All I was doing was just typing and thinking about my next post of THE LABADI BOY IN RUSSIA.
I KNOW IT'S BAD BUT HMMMMMMM, I JUST CAN'T HELP IT OR I'M A DULL BOY???? Well.........NO NO NO,I'm not a dull boy ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜


Few minutes later, orange juice with pastry was served. Miraculously, my rumbling tummy disappeared JUST LIKE THAT. It’s shocking how at the SIGHT OF "SOMETHING THAT LOOKED LIKE FOOD" MY TUMMY STOPPED MAKING “NOISE” ROTFL
Just when they were about serving us, one of the new students said ‘I WANT FIGURE’ .Till now, I still don’t understand what it meant and me too, I’ve not gotten the chance to ask him.

Appetizer

As a Ga boy [that doesn’t mean all Ga boys], I like HEAVY FOOD. Moreover, I wasn’t used to taking appetizers before MAIN DISHES...NO NO NO
So here I was acting as a "gentleman" and doing "big boy" things BUT NOTHING give me too oooooo…LOL
I WAS JUST ANXIOUSLY WAITING FOR THE MAIN DISH……..I COULDN’T WAIT.

We had a guest musician,Nigerian [who happens to be a student in my school, Saratov State University] by the name De Emperor [HE IS DAMN GOOD MEHN especially when it comes to singing cool or love songs.] 
Check him out De Emperor performing "ะฏ ะขะ•ะ‘ะฏ ะ›ะฎะ‘ะ›ะฎ" "I Love You"


De Emperor Introducing himself
So whiles taking our appetizer, he was introduced to give us some beautiful music. He came on stage with his guitar and sang a popular love song [forgotten the title] to just open the floor. After, He performed with one of the New Students [Prince the Rapper] whose birthday was coincidentally that day. Prince gave some freestyle rap bi. Chaley, IT WAS SOOOOOOOOOO COOL especially with the guitar beat.


De Emperor and Prince 1
Later on, De Emperor did his rendition of Fuse Odg's Azonto BUT most of us seemed unperturbed: Some were on their phones Snap Chatting, Facebooking, WhatsApping and stuff [like ME....I WAS NUMBER ONE. I WAS JUST ON MY PHONE TYPING AND NOTING DOWN MY OBSERVATIONS FOR MY BLOG] and others were watching the 'El Clasico' [Barcelona versus Real Madrid which ended 1 all. Barcelona took the lead in the 53rd minute through Luis Suarez THEN SERGIO RAMOS DID IT AGAIN in the 90th minute. He leapt to head in a Luka Modric delivery to score a dramatic equalizer].

He was a lil bit disappointed [How did I know????? Well, it was written all over his face AND as human as we are, when you doing something and it’s not being appreciated, you lose the zeal or vim to continue. JUST LIKE A FOOTBALL MATCH AND THE SUPPORTERS CHEERING YOU UP. IT BOOSTS YOUR MORALE…..IT’S A NATURAL PHENOMENON]

*MY THOUGHTS* I soooooooo believe and think the timing of his performance wasn’t 'right' cos most of us were unsettled sort of. I think we were not ready for his performance YET. THE GUY IS DOPE AND EVERYONE KNEW IT.

*So he wrapped it up and left [The excuse I heard was, he was going to perform somewhere so he just came to pass by BUT still kraaaa, WE DISAPPOINTED HIM ๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜ž๐Ÿ˜ž

Veronica [one of the Current Students] came to deliver a MOTIVATIONAL SPEECH. Even though it was long, it was worth listening cos all the things she spoke about were deep. She also gave a little advice on us not giving up despite the harsh weather conditions [WINTER, I hate it] and stuff.

Veronica giving her motivational speech
In the middle of her speech, my rumbling tummy came again and THIS TIME, It was getting out of hand. Sitting by a lady[Queen] too, OMG I felt soooooooo uneasy and uncomfortable. I was just making my tummy "stiff" so that the sound stays just within me else “yawa go pae” and I would have been sooooo ashamed. IT WASN'T EASY AT ALL. I HAD TO ENDURE. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

This is A TRUE DEFINITION OF ENDURANCE mehn. 

Immediately she was done, they started serving…YAY,  FOOD IS IN๐Ÿ˜†!!!I SAID WITHIN ME “OH GOD, I THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH. Tears of joy were flowing in my spirit.. Just then and there, I realized I was STILL SITTING BY Queen and sitting by a lady to eat has always been very difficult for me especially when I really don’t know the person or I ain’t close to her. So,I started thinking of how to relocate and sit by Victor. I got a plan and the plan was to just go sit by Victor and pretend as if I'm showing him something then I remain seated till I’ve been served. IT WORKED cos no one asked why I’d changed my seat.

Everyone was Finally served then we started doing "justice" to the food.
Jollof with two different types of Salad with Chicken. YAYTHIS IS WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT. "REAL FOOD"

THE FOOOOOOOOD

I just couldn't stop eating

I just couldn't leave the chicken alone

The President [Mary] came to deliver her speech [it was very short ๐Ÿ˜™ ] and also introduced her team [THE EXECUTIVES : Mary - The President ; Kojo - The Vice President; Caroline - The Secretary ; Gifty - The Treasurer ; Benjamin - The Electoral Commissioner etc.]. The Vice President came to talk for a while then they all went back to their seats to EAT



From Left to Right : Gifty [Treasurer], Mary [The President], Kojo [Vice President],
Efia Sadam [OMG, I've forgotten her position] and Caroline [Secretary]
After we had finished eating, Jude [One of the Current Students] was invited to come and perform with another new student, Prince 2. He also rapped but very fast. Sarkodie kinda style, ukr.

THEN MY ONE AND ONLY MARTHA CAME TO PERFORM. WOW, WHAT AN AMAZING VOICE……OMG!
Her voice was soooooooo melodious that I had chills. I’ve heard her sing a few times at church [The Baptist Church,Engels] but this performance was toooooooo dope ๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™๐Ÿ˜™. I soooooooo wanted to give her a standing ovation but was very shy [Peeps would have been like,ei this guy too what's up] Her performance was soooooooo exquisite and classic.
It got everyone wowed to the extent of someone giving her some Rubles[Russian currency] and another person giving his suit to her. After she was done, she was given a resounding applause.
IT WAS SOMETHING ELSE MEHN. Martha was tooooooo much that day.

Later on, the birthday boy [Prince] was called on stage, we sang happy birthday and as a treat, he was asked to pick a lady to dance with. He picked the President cos he was shy of almost all the girls[ I think so].

After, We [New Students] were asked to come to the floor to dance. 
Sammy doing his own thing on the dance floor
I asked my self .
EI, DANCE???????. ME,do I know how to dance?????? This one di33333, OVER ME. 
Even at church kraaaaa, I don't dance. I just move left and right and that's all. I have a friend back home at church who is just LIKE ME. She doesn't know how to dance one bit. Lemme not blow my own trumpet BUT I'm even better than her...ROTFL #Rita #MissTradeFair
I JUST DON'T KNOW HOW TO DANCE.

Immediately I heard that, I pretended to be having heart burns and went out. Just when I got to the corridor and thought I was FREE then and there, I GOT CAUGHT by Gifty [The Treasurer].  OH,WHAT A MISFORTUNE๐Ÿ˜ญ!!!!! Gave her all the excuses in the world but still she sent me in to join my colleagues.....Hmmmmmmmm
Sister Gifty,the thing go me papa.....LOL

The Dance Floor
Coincidentally OR lemme say God being on my side, my paddies [Victor and Benjamin] were just about to leave so I said "oh yes, this is it. THANK GOD". But as we were leaving, I GOT CAUGHT AGAIN. WHY ME????????๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ
But this time around, It was from my boss Kojo [The Vice President] He told me to stay cos the party was organised because of us and me leaving isn't cool. I pleaded and pleaded till He allowed me to go.
I gave the excuse that I will be going to church at 10 am the following day so I needed to have enough rest. YAY 
Honestly, It was true. My church[The Baptist Church] starts at 10 am and since It's in the next City,Engels I always have to leave home an hour earlier. From SARATOV to ENGELS.

We left there few minutes past 22:00, took a taxi then straight to my hostel. I alighted then off it went to drop them Victor and Benjamin.

As I undressed and laid in bed, I started thinking whether I made the RIGHT CHOICE OF LEAVING or NOT. I DIDN'T EVEN TAKE DESSERT. 
I learnt and was told THE DESSERT WAS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO NICE. I REALLY REGRETTED MISSING IT.๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜ญ

Also this would have been the PERFECT OPPORTUNITY for me TO SOCIALIZE, GET TO KNOW PEOPLE and most importantly PROMOTE MY BLOG, Diary Of The Labadi Boy In Russia. 

But I consoled my self with  EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON and IN ALL THINGS,GIVE THANKS TO GOD and slept.

THE PARTY WAS A SUCCESS. THANKS TO GOD, Mary [ Our President], Kojo [Vice President], The Executives and EVERYONE.
IT WAS FUN.

SOME PICTURES AFTER I'D LEFT
