I love the recent trend that is making rounds on Instagram. People are tagging friends to share things about them that may be of mystery or might have gone unnoticed. I did share mine, but would love to share a bit more on this platform and get to know yours (is that a deal ? *winks*).

1) I love gifts: as little as a letter wrapped in a shinny sheet. However, don’t belittle my expectation

2) I love to listen to people: I hate seeing people sad or confused not knowing who to talk to.  I’ve been there and it hurts so  I try  to listen to people, through all their emotions. Happiness, pain etc.

3) I have this friend called Jesus: I don’t know how to describe this friendship, but he has got me every time. We laugh at the most absurd thoughts I have and then he corrects me when I’m getting over my head with being too familiar with him. I’m in love!!

4) I got to appreciate my mum’s love when I turned 18: I had the most skewed relationship with my mum growing up. I feel that is the case for most first born girl child. We are placed on this pedestal a simple slip means the rest of the children are going down the drain. glad it wasn’t too late because I learnt a lot from her.

5) I love my dad: A lot of people already know that, he has given me everything and I mean everything.

6) Stand up comedy and a live band makes me happy: I am patiently waiting for the moment I finally get to do this with someone I care about. I start my book the next day (laughs)

7) I can stay indoors for days: I love being in a room, with Tv and food. I tumble sleep, wake and repeat routine again. My parents never know I am home.

8) I protect my friends: I brag different, I am a loyal friend.

9) I notice the slightest change in character: I might ignore if you’re not important to my growth process.

10) You can notice when I’m hurt: My skin color won’t allow me shine. I literally turn red on the outside when my inside is boiling from anger.

    I love getting to know more about you and I love these tags as well.
    1. The most awe-inspiring person I've known is Jesus and it's such a blessing getting to know and experience Him all the more.

    2. I'm a pretty reserved human and I'm trying to make sure I always use this for good regardless of the misconceptions surrounding this and how into myself I could get sometimes.

    3. Pick something you really love/makes you happy. Imagine how excited you are when you receive it… That's how I feel about journals, books, good quality paper.

    It's awesome really to have a friend like Jesus. Although I already shared on my Instagram, here's a fact, I love fried yam. Oh and lovely pictures, I love the retro vibes.
