"Every soul shall have a taste of death: And only on the Day of Judgment shall you be paid your full recompense. Only he who is saved far from the Fire and admitted to the Garden will have attained the object (of Life): For the life of this world is but goods and chattels of deception." (Al Imran Chapter 3 verse 185)

Drama Drama Drama Part 1

This has also been done in a hurry like my previous post so please read with patience!

I know it has been a bit but before you start praying jannazah for my corner of the blogsphere let me just say I’m sorry. I should have regularly updated!
However I can’t promise that my I won’t do it again. Such is Native’s life these days. Too hectic!

Anyway guys…………a lot has happened since I last blogged. We have entered a new year in both the Gregorian calendar and Islamic calendar. Benazir Bhutto was assassinated and the Pakistan elections delayed. Mozambique was and still is going through a flooding disaster. Heath Ledger died of possible drug overdose (sleeping pills) and Kenyans went to vote and got disappointed (the majority anyway). Political situation there is unstable and they say the country is in a state of anarchy. It’s worrying because my whole family lives there………but inshaAllah kheyr.

School has been eventful. Never has so much drama unfolded in the space of a few months. We are halfway through the 2nd semester and already a hell of a lot has happened!

Let me first introduce to you a few more characters:

Mr Playboy: This is the tutor. Overly confident and sure of himself. Knows his stuff and a good teacher in his specialist subject. However even though he appears confident I think he has self esteem issues…….always talks about ethos he demonstrated he clearly can’t keep.

The latecomer: Walks in late for every lecture clutching a hot cup of coffee. Can be a bitch but what you see is what you get with her. She keeps it real, always hangs out with the Black guy an the Twisted guy

Ms Nice: I might be biased toward this person as I have known her forever. We live together and share all the lectures and tutorials. She is my other half according to the rest of the class………..she is the good cop and I’m the bad cop. Seems nice at first but once her she reaches her threshold…………let’s just say I don’t want to be there when sh*t hits the fan!

So this is what’s been going on…………

The Token gay has gone part-time due some family problems (his mother is ill) and the Zionist has made a return.

Ms helpful and Good looking girl were accused and reported of cheating by Over-eager guy. Fortunately for them the matter was worked out with the discretion of the tutor and class.

Two of our lectures were under moderation due to complaints raised by the class……

Back to the cheating drama………it was our first physics paper and we were all anxious especially those that have never done physics before. The paper wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be and most aced it. Only two out of twenty failed!

So Good looking girl and Ms Helpful were sitting near each other with Over eager guy sitting in the same row too. Good looking girl was having problems with one of the questions and got some help from Ms Helpful. Over eager guy was really struggling with the paper.

Two weeks later (on Thursday) we got our results and Ms Helpful and Good looking girl did great the each scored over 85%. Over eager guy didn’t do as well.

Friday (of the same week we got our physics papers back), Mr Playboy announces to the class that he received an anonymous email about two people (who had been named) cheating in the paper. This was in the morning…….through playing mind games with the class (by announcing to the class……then mentioning that the person needs to come clean if they have the correct morals and ethics of becoming a doctor . Within a few hours, Over eager guy was confessing to the class (everybody accused the ‘emailee’ of being a coward and making accusations without depth). The class called for an investigation and for the ‘cheaters’ to be kicked of the course. At this point they all thought it was Ms Nice and I.

I spoke to Over eager guy and told him to report my name if I was the one of the two that cheated.
“You don’t hold my fate in your hands guy and if I am to succeed in this it wouldn’t be because of you. I have faith in a higher power and what is meant to be will be” I said. Little did I know that Ms Nice said more or less the same thing a few minutes ago.

Anyway it turned out it wasn’t us and all was good on our part…….however tension is now thick and very evident in the class. Nobody likes Over eager guy or feels comfortable around him (who likes a grass). He only accused the two because they scored more than him and he only respects us because he thinks we will beat him (or at least hire people to) since we live in the ghetto ( we don’t even have the time of the day for him)

Good looking girl can’t stand Ms Helpful, however she pretends to be her best friend. Ms Helpful and Good looking both pretend to still like Over eager guy but when he is not around they say things behind his back.

Good looking girl says things behind everybody’s back.

Ms Nice and I always stay in the background…..we spend our school hours in lectures or the library. A lot of our classmates are intimidated by our closeness because they have take on two us as we come in a pair.

There is so much more but will fill you all in another day……my eyes are watering and my fingers are tired.

There is way more to come lol……if you’ve not already had enough of this that is.

P.S I wanna beat the crap out of most people in the class with a cane like they did in Africa so I can teach them a lesson. Most of them are worse than a bunch of pre-teens!

LOL, hilarious! Native, beat them with a can, huh? Goodness! I felt some tightness in the chest from the stress and tension of this group. I've forgotten the drama of lectures and the characters vying for professional schools.

How are you enjoying your classes, hon?
