25 Things You Don’t Know About Me

I saw this online and I felt it’s a great way to make my readers and visitors get to know the person behind this blog.

1• I am the third child in my family.

2• I don’t have a favourite food or drink, but I love bananas if that counts as food.

3• My favourite colour is blue, all shades of blue. But recently, I’m leaning towards red. I don’t believe it too, I used to hate red.

4• I was painfully shy as a child. When I was younger, I would sometimes choke on my words. I’d spend hours rehearsing my conversations, saying them to myself over and over again.

But when the time comes to voice them out my tongue would stick to the roof of my mouth, and I’ll forget them all or they just stuck somewhere in my throat.

So, I was tagged with names like Franker, Snob. The rude ones just call me arrogant, proud peacock and so on.

5• I always find it difficult to ask for help. Don’t ask why because I won’t be able to give you the answer. I don’t know why myself. Maybe I’m shy or scared of being turned down or mocked. I don’t know or simply put, maybe I’m just a control freak and hate giving the wheel to someone else.

Honestly, I have no idea why. It is just what it is.

6• My dream job as a kid was to become a surgeon..lol (:

7• I’m a PTSD candidate on the road to recovery or not.

8• I have serious anxiety problem so bad that even my fears scare me. When you are at the point where you’re scared of being scared, it is terrifying.

Yeah, I know it’s bad I should seek for help. But we are in Nigeria, people hardly care about things like that. malaria, Infection, Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, yeah, but PTSD? You’d have to get in line or stay at home if you don’t want to end up being tagged crazy.

9• My least favourite thing about myself is, I over analyse a lot; maybe a little too much. I used to hate that about myself. Now, I’ve accepted it as who I am.

10• My favourite clothing or dressing is whatever is convenient for me. My dressing for now is more of convenience than fashion.

11• I despise fake people, cheaters and liars.

12• My all time movie is Twilight Saga. I just love the main characters’ love, their relationship, determination and strength.

13• My favourite TV series is The Originals. “Always and Forever” I guess it shows my belief on family. No matter what, family should stand for and beside one another.

14• I love making people happy. I love it when I can make someone smile for joy, it makes me happy.

15• And I loved walking in the rain, barefoot. I missed it. I still do it in my head tho 🙂

16• I wanted to be an actress or or anything that has to do with being on TV but I was always too shy to face camera. I tried acting for a while then walked away. Don’t ask or wonder why, it’s a secret (;

17• I’ve only eaten pizza twice in my life. But those two times left nasty taste in my mouth. Now, I don’t think I’ll ever taste it again.

18• I don’t listen to news. I see it as a constant reminder of all the things wrong with the world that no one can actually do anything about. Here, it is like an everyday celebration of the triumph of the powerful over the weak; the rich over the poor.

19• I don’t like having a clock or any device that tells or shows the time in my bedroom. My head does that enough.

20• My biggest pet peeves are loud chewing and breathing.

21• I used to hate Wednesdays since I was a kid. Now, they terrify me. I was hit by a truck on Wednesday. It took my left leg, broke my pelvis in more places than I care to remember and weakened my right knee. Weird? I know. If I had my way, I’d rather not go out on Wednesdays.

22• I have tinnitus. One of the souvenir from my accident.

23• I cook and eat a lot when I’m sad or worried.

24• I have the worst luck in my choice of men. And I have this weird magnet that draws the meanest of them. If they don’t find me, I’ll find them.

25• Ah! I hate spiders and cockroaches. And just about all crawling things. I feel my skin crawling after them long after they disappeared.
