Can you hear the excitement in my voice?
I’m excited about today’s blog post because it’s a fun one.
Let me backtrack a little to put my excitement into better perspective for you.
When I was planning the March guest post series and reaching out to friends who I thought could contribute posts for the blog, I asked a friend who manages a fashion page on Instagram if she could write for me ( I was short of writers) and she said, “That your serious blog. Your readers will just chase me.”
It made me think a little but then, I would be wrong to abandon what I am doing for another’s because theirs seem more fun. That would be me living a mimicry of another’s life.
So, while putting together some “serious” blog posts, I came across a number of tags on Discovering Your Happiness. Of the three I saw, this was the most appealing to me.
So, here goes.
In case you are wondering. A TMI tag is a bunch of questions that I’ve been asked and I answer them for you all to get a better understanding of me. Should be fun, yeah?
What are you currently wearing?
A grey tee and light pink slacks.
Have you ever been in love?
Have you ever had a terrible breakup?
Not really, but I’ve had a relationship that did not quite end as planned. Life happens.
How old are you?
How tall are you?
How much do you weigh?
Not sure. I haven’t checked in a while. But usually within 50 – 60 kilograms.
Do you have any piercings?
The regular. The singular earlobe piercing gave to most female children at birth.
What’s your favourite drink?
What’s your favourite song?
At the moment? So Will I (100 Billion X) by Hillsong.
What’s your zodiac sign?
How long does it take you to shower?
Hahaha! One time in the university I was hurrying, I came out of the bathroom feeling cool with myself that I was fast. My roommate timed me. I spent ten minutes (hurrying).
What’s your favourite show?
I’m not a TV person.
What’s your favourite band?
“Band”? I’m supposed to be a music person… I love Hillsong.
Something you really miss?
“Really”? Time with my best friends from the university? Nothing else comes to mind right now.
Where do you go when you’re sad?
My room. I’d sit with my back against the wall, knees drawn up, arms around my legs, head lowered and cry. Then, I’d probably listen to some worship songs and pray.
How long does it take to get ready in the morning?
30 minutes. Once I’ve had my bath, I’m as good as ready (except I don’t have my outfit already planned out).
Have you ever been in a physical fight?
Hahaha. Yes, I have. One time in Primary school. Then multiple times in childhood with my immediate younger brother.
What turns you on?
Great writing. Great music (lyrics).
What turns you off?
Typographical errors. Short forms. Misspellings.
Qualities you look for in a partner?
Congruent spiritual information and values. Vision. Emotional support.

Loud music or soft?
“Where there’s a will there’s a way.”
Blogged about it here.
Bleh. I’m not a TV person, remember? But I watched this & reviewed it.
Do you have any fears?
Nope. I have learned not to have fears.
What’s the last thing that made you cry?
Missing the deadline for Federal Medical Centre, Owerri’s intern application.
Last time you said you loved someone?
Does the heart emoji we use in chats count? If so, a few days ago.
