Sometime in March, I decided to take an online course on Solar systems and astronomy on Edx. I chose that subject because:
I was fascinated by the study of celestial bodies in primary school
I wanted to learn something outside of my scope. Learning never ends.
The class has honestly been insightful, especially for someone without any background in astronomy. While taking the class, it helps to have some basic knowledge of physics, so one does not get lost on certain laws that govern the solar system. Also it gives more info on the history of solar astronomy in a fun way. Tools were provided for us to do our own personal observations of the night sky.
So there was this Nigerian youtube channel I was recently introduced to called “Your View”. It’s similar to “The View and The Talk” but instead it’s all about Nigerians addressing issues that we all have faced and are facing currently in Nigeria (and can relate to). It felt enlightening watching it, seeing people’s perspectives on things that affect me and I believe every Nigerian should learn from.
I subsequently would be sharing videos on topics that I enjoy watching.
So I found a certain thing that amused me on Linda Ikeji’s blog. And made me realize some things that would never change in Nigerian i.e the “I’m the oga, you’re the omo ise, hence you’re beneath me” mentality.
