Hiiii everybody!! How’s May going? Happy New Month (I know, I know- fourteen days in? How exactly do I define new?). This is my first post (obviously but still *insert applause emoji*) and I think starting on a “10 random things to know about me” note would be the best route to take, let’s get into it, shall we?
I grew up doing so many odd things but I distinctly remember binge reading Enid Blyton, Lantern books and watching Harry Potter instead of playing with sand and going for ‘yawo’ which was the common thing where I grew up (yawo is Hausa for walking, strolling, roaming…you get the idea).
So that tells you that number two would definitely be me saying I read (and reread) a lot of books…and no, not school books o, novels. I just recently reread Children of Blood and Bone by Tomi Adeyemi (amazeballs!!) and I’m currently reading The Wedding Girl by Madeleine Wickham (aweeesssooommee). P.s comment some books you’d like me to read.
I don’t like surprises…honestly. I don’t like that my heart would throb (painfully) in my chest afterwards or that my palms would become sweaty or the awkward thank you I’d say because I had not prepared my beautiful appreciation speech and the feeling of uncertainty that surround surprises, ugh…I always want to know, tell me “babe, I want to get you this for this occasion”, “we’re going to this place”, etc.
I am afraid of being in the dark…figuratively.
Clusters irritate me…like anything clumped together in one spot gives me the heebie-jeebies, sometimes I even get the ‘we are where you see us but we’re actually all over your body, so panic’ feel so, I start panicking. I am known to freak out and almost jump out of my skin because of clusters.
If my battery is not 100%, I’d start looking for how to charge it…the frantic way I’d be looking for a socket ehn, you’d think my phone is dead. I honestly don’t understand people who don’t charge their phones.
I don’t like odd numbers especially number 1 because I feel it’s their leader.
My favorite color is…I don’t know. It used to be baby blue then pink, after that I switched to purple, then maroon, then black…I still favor blue, pink and black. Don’t bring red near me sha.
I love spoilers! No you don’t understand, I LOVE SPOILERS! Before I see a movie, if someone near me has seen the movie, I’d ask for spoilers or I’d go on Wiki and read it- if I don’t know the plot, I can’t comfortably see a movie or even read a book. Strange, no?
I lowkey have OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)…I color code things, I arrange money by the heads, I hoard perfume bottles and I arrange them, I come back almost immediately to clean what I just cleaned, everything must be just right according to symmetry.
So there you have it, 10 random things about me. Thank you for reading. Please comment below, I’d love to also get to know my readers and also do subscribe.
