"Being me" blog tag

June 10, 2014 Naija girl next door 17 Comments

   I was tagged by Bee at glamlushhair and Yvette at Hardmashonatype to do this blog tag. Enjoy!

Are you named after someone?
 No, my name's just mine

When was the last time you cried?

May 5th, My induction. I embarassed shocked myself by shedding a tear or two. I'm not usually that emotional.

Do you have any children?

If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself? 
Oh yes. Definitely. I'm reserved initially so there's that minor blip, but shortly after I'm a riot.

 Do you have any guilty pleasures?
I mostly eat healthy but I get mad chocolate cravings every now and then and I happily indulge. Sometimes it's cake or icecream.

 Do you like handwriting?
Yes I do. And I take special notice of people with pretty handwriting.

 What's your favourite cereal?
Kellogg's Fruit and Fibre hands down! Once I mixed it with Honey Bunches of Oats to tone down the sweetness. The result was heaven.

What's the first thing you notice about people? 
Their clothes, then their hair right after.

What's the colour of your eyes? 
Dark brown

Scary movies or happy endings?
Both. My mood dictates.

Favourite TV show?
Game of Thrones, Grey's Anatomy, Big Bang Theory, How I met your mother, So You Think You Can Dance.

Winter or summer?
I live in a tropical country so it's virtually always summer. Not a big fan of cold so nay to winter.

Hugs or kisses?
Both! From the right people that is.

Special talent?

1. Undoing complicated knots on those thin, gold necklaces! This is a special talent yo, ask my mum. Hehehe
2. These I wouldn't call special because they're not remotely exclusive, but I write fiction and poetry. I draw and I'm also very handy with a needle and thread, Just show me a rip or a too-big waist and I'm on it.

Where were you born?
Kano, Nigeria

Reading, trying out new recipes, swimming, doodling, doing my hair, playing music and dancing alone in my room.

Do you have any pets?
No. Haven't had any since my last one, a rabbit called Charlie Poncho died.

Favourite movie?
It would be a long list if I tried...

What colour is your car?

What do you want to do when you grow up?
Paediatrician or psychiatrist, haven't made a final decision; and I want to run a couple of successful businesses.
