            I can’t remember where I read that one needs to keep his friends close but his enemies closer-for all I know it may have been in a random bar or poster in a minute town with nothing to write home about-but I totally agree with that. In effect, keeping your enemies closer means you don’t retaliate but behave in a manner that is likely to make them look back and regret whatever they did to you in the first place. They will think long and hard about their actions and if they are sane then they will concede that they were in the wrong. At the end of the day, a truce may be reached.

            What I am trying to put across in so many words is that I am one guy who is never fazed by the presence of enemies. Honestly speaking, I like enemies and I can do anything to add one enemy than one friend. If you didn’t know, then know now that your enemy thinks of you much more than your friend ever will. Well, I am a strange character so don’t take everything on face value but decipher it first. All I am saying is that an enemy is not an entirely bad person to have around you.

            What all essay writers or any other person interested in essays will always tell you is that enemies make you strong and more determined to prove them wrong. According to people in the writing fraternity, enemies kind of spur you on and help you give the best of the best in all you are doing. The list of enemies may include persistent critics who will never say anything good about you or what you are doing. Such people shouldn’t discourage you but motivate you to move on. I apply that in my campus life and it has worked wonders; all students that castigate or speak ill of me in anything and are in my class can never beat me in academic matters.

Class Foe

              As I write this now, I am enemy number one of my engineering class. As much as I would love to defend myself against the entire class, there is no way I can do that, at least in the meantime. Before this sick incident I was just your average and common guy in the street that raised nothing more than an eye brow-more from the cologne I wear than from my looks-and I had no problem with anybody in class. The week before last, our mathematics lecturer came to class and announced that there would be a continuous assessment test (CAT) the following week (last week).
            As typical as university students are, we disagreed with him and asked him to postpone the CAT but he refused to bow to our demands. It was therefore very startling when our class representative (CR) came to class a day after the agreement and told us that the CAT had been scrapped off. We were glad in because none of us likes revising anyway, especially if it is only a CAT to revise for.  I work as an essay writer for a new essay writing service Company in town and before delving fully into the writing orders I was to deal with I decided to give the mathematics lecturer a courtesy call to thank him for postponing the CAT.
            To my surprise, he informed me that the CAT was on and that the CR had lied. When I informed the CR of what the lecturer had told me he got so mad at me, telling me that I had convinced the lecturer to bring the CAT when he had clearly decided to postpone it. I tried defending myself but he didn’t want anything of it. When he went before the class to inform them that the CAT was back on, he categorically pointed at me as being responsible for the CAT being brought back on. That is when I became a class foe, and I must admit it is quite an experience when everybody hates you.

Lie of the Year

Normal 0 false false false RU X-NONE X-NONE

            Out of respect rather anything else, sometimes we allow other people-especially people in authority-to lie to us and get on with it. It happens every time, and somehow we don’t care a fig about it. In most cases in campus, it happens when students are attending lectures or church functions. When for instance a lecturer has been teaching and he wants to give a breather to his students, he will normally give an anecdote of sorts, riddle and comment on the current affairs or give his opinion on something. It is during such times that the lecturer will find an opportunity to lie to his students, but in very rare cases will the students find out.

            This is for the simple reason that the students take whatever the lecturer tells them as the gospel truth and there is always no need to question him or her. The lecturers also know this and they always make the most of this fault on the part of the students. Despite working in an essay writing firm as a part time essay writer, I am a passionate soccer follower and there is very little I don’t know about the major soccer clubs of the world today like Arsenal, Barcelona, Real Madrid, AC Milan, Manchester United, Bayern Munich and so on.

            I was therefore very surprised yesterday when our lecturer blatantly lied to us in class about a game I clearly remember watching in the past. In the alleged game, between the two Italian giants AC Milan and Inter Milan, the lecturer told us that the game had been a total game of football where the ball hadn’t gone out of the pitch for a corner or throw-in for the entire ninety minutes of the game. I was taken aback because I knew that was a blatant lie. I almost told him my mind but I decided to play along like the rest of my class members. It is the lie of the year if not the century.

Principles are a Precursor to Success

Normal 0 false false false RU X-NONE X-NONE

            There are so many things that are important to the success of a person anywhere in this world, and they suit different people in different parts of the world. One quality however that is a common denominator to all successful people and one that can’t be simply wished away is principle. One definition of principle is that it is a rule or belief governing one’s personal behavior. In other words, principle is what forms the basis of one’s character, wherever he may be. This should be interpreted to mean that a campus student who has a record of disciplinary cases can’t and indeed shouldn’t be considered as a principled person. Principles help anyone everywhere, as they can take you where money can’t.

            In the education sector, the essence of principles as far as success is concerned cannot be overemphasized. A principled student has got higher chances of making it in his exams than one who is not. It is common knowledge that a principled student will have more time to spend on his studies because he will have less time to worry about things that don’t concern him, or better still side issues that are not the main reason that took him to campus in the first place. The reverse is true for students who are not disciplined.

            A principled student will focus on his studies, and many a time he or she will know why he went to campus and what is expected of him. In essence, principles will help him concentrate regardless of whether he is a writer of essays in an essay writing institution of sorts or not. Conversely, a student with no principles will almost always be unaware of the sole reason why he went to the university or to the college and he may not give it his all, not that it matters to him.
