I wake up very early in the morning, rush to campus, a five minute walk so that the library is opened when I am present, lest I do not get any computer to use, as all would have been booked. I check my mail to see if any of the organizations to whose online job adverts I had applied for had responded.
A fellow, claiming to be a brother to the jailed former Liberian president Charles Taylor has also written to me asking my help to acquire millions of dollars stashed in a Dutch bank, promising me a hefty commission.
Furiously disappointed, I delete all of them and sign out.
