Medium is easily the best place to find the most interesting and thought provoking articles on the internet so you should check out and tell your friends to tell your friends to sign up and read it.

GH Conversations 3: I Knock For Fun

I needed to get something from TT at around 11PM. So I left my room and walked to his.

Me: *Knock Knock Knock* It's Binjo

TT: Do you want to come in?

Me: No, I just like knocking on people's doors for fun

GH Conversations 2: We're Free On Wednesday But Tuesday Is My Resting Day

It turns out that the T.A for Sociology set a day and time for an extra class because we're behind schedule.

I bumped into Michael around 5:30PM and we had this convo.

Michael: Binjo wassup?

Me: I'm Good.

Michael: Did you go for the Sociology tutorial?

Me: Wait. What? When? 

Michael: It was at 12.30.

Me: I didn't know. I was sleeping at that time. Did you go?

Michael: Naa meen. I'm busy on Tuesdays.

Me: Oh. Did you go for another class or something?

Michael: Tuesday is my resting day meen. I have to rest. 

Michael and I have the exact timetable and we have no class on Wednesday. Our only Tuesday class finishes at 9.30AM.

I will never understand my classmates.

GH Conversations 1: Is there a short form of the short form of your name?

I've had or heard the most ridiculous conversations in my short time in Accra. I want to share them in a place where they can be read a the time. GH Conversations will be random and will come as the conversations come.

Programming 2 TA: Hey you what's your name?

Me: Binjo

Programming 2 TA: Is there like a short form of your name?

Me: Would you prefer Olabinjo?
