I decided to share with you 15 random things about myself.
Things that you probably didn’t know.
It’s almost two years since I started writing this blog, and in that time, I’ve never really taken the time to introduce myself, so I decided to do to this in a fun way and expose my self just a little bit 😜. I trust you won’t use it against me.
Sure, if you’re one of my readers (hey you, thank you!), you’ll have a bit of an idea but maybe not a clear one?
1. I am shy
I am definitely not a shy blogger, but in person. One thing that makes it so obvious that I’m shy is that I tend to talk super fast. If you don’t know me like that, you will probably have a hard time in understanding what I’m trying to say.
2. I get cold easily
For reasons I don’t know, cold literally gets into me so easily. My feet and hands will literally be so cold and I can’t sleep until they are warm. Winter days are worst, but there is nothing a pair of three stockings, two jerseys and a hot cup of tea can’t fix.
3. I hate ‘After’ Book to Movie Adaptation
So I used to be a Wattpad fan and the book I first read and loved was written by Anna Todd. This book was amazing and with every page I turned I’d imagine it being a movie, and when I finally read that it was being made into a movie I was super excited about it, only to be disappointed. Too many little nitty-gritty ideas were left out.
4. I love calling people by their names
So here is the thing, whenever I’m typing on WhatsApp or calling a friend, I always mention their name, for example, ‘Hi Nissi, how are you’. The reason being that (it’s going to sound crazy), but I feel that it’s more personal that way. I love that.
5. I love real life stories
Don’t be surprised when you see me watching crime shows. You should definitely see my most watched videos on YouTube. I love murder shows, I think the real reason I watch these shows is that satisfaction I get when a culprit being punished for what they did. That makes me happy knowing someone out there got justice!
6. I love milk chocolates
Are other chocolates even chocolates? It’s either milk chocolate or no chocolate for me.
7. I had a crush on a guy who proposed my twin sister
Hey sis😂. You are probably reading this now too, well, I guess that’s how random this blog post is. I had a crush on a guy who had eyes on my twin sister. I’m totally not mentioning his name, but I realised he wasn’t like a person I’d date anyways.
8. I love reading BUT
I struggle reading textbooks, recipe books, classics, you know all the other serious stuff. I have a hard time comprehending these things, let alone remain focused. I don’t know why I’m like that too haha!
9. My middle name is not on my birth certificate
I’m still mad at my parents for doing this. My name is Charmaine Danai Chigwedere, but Danai is not on my birth certificate. My mother told me that she gave me this name because I couldn’t pronounce Charmaine when I was in preschool. I think I was a little slow, but at least I’m entertaining now.
10. I’m learning to be more open
I mean check me out, this blog post, the Sunday Confessions. Yep! Two out of those three Confessions really happened and YES, to me.
11. I love art
Did you know that I used to draw? I really was a talented young girl back then. I lacked focus and support really. I love drawing and now it pains me so much that I can no longer draw.
12. I visit the National Art Gallery, frequently
Whenever I get in town, for no reason, I always visit the National Art Gallery. I think I love admiring other people’s work and honestly I get inspired.
13. I love to help
If you are in front of me and you are carrying heavy stuff, I’m helping!
14. When I was young I was obsessed with the Smurfs
My twin sister and I had big tshirts that had smurfs printed all over them. An older version of me loved Smurfette and she was on my WhatsApp profile picture for so long, sadly my obsession ended when I was in my second year in college, I think.
15. I am a huge fan of Jazz
I think this is one of the purest and honest genre ever to be made. I always imagine myself on a date in a blue shiny dress, with this handsome man staring in my eyes, the sound of Jazz blessing our ear buds. Gosh! It’s magical, atleast in my eyes. Dream on Winter Duckling.
