Hello Good People!!! How’ve you been?!
Yea, I know. I know it’s been such a long time since you read something from me. I say to myself “You have been inactive on here for too long. You ought to get your act together and get back to ‘writing ways’. Then one thing leads to another and I get carried away by the waves of life’s drama. The writer in me was truly willing. My hand just couldn’t cooperate with my mind to dish out those good stuff you know me for.
So, what now? Is my mind now in sync with my hand? I think so. Does this mean you’ll get to read more from me and consistently so? Absolutely.
Therefore, I, Ayansola Ibukun, first of his name, do solemnly promise that I won’t shirk my writing responsibilities going forward. I’ll ensure I put out worthwhile posts regularly and engage yours while at it. So help me God!
You hear people say, “out of sight is out of mind“. I think it’s not always true. People who care enough about you don’t bid you good riddance at the slightest provocation.
I must say I’m blessed to have really amazing friends here. I speak of people who have refused to give up on me but have kept looking out for me and reaching out to me in the course of my circumstantial exile from WordPress. It feels good to be remembered. I do not take you or your thoughtfulness for granted. Much love!
Meanwhile, it would have been understandable had I lost a good number of subscribers to my blog due to my inconsistency. I’m however surprised to see that the number increased remarkably. So to my new friends here, I say gracias and welcome. It promises to be a series of pleasant exchanges.
Okay. Let’s get down to business…
So I was thinking of what to write for my first post in a long time. (sometimes I overthink things). Rather than write something thought-provoking, I decided on something lighthearted. We’ll have all the time to explore profound ideas.
In the meantime, here is what I’m going to do: I’m just going expose myself a bit and let you into some ‘interesting’ aspects of me that you don’t know about. It’s not your regular FAQs. Call it fun and weird facts if you will. You should find them interesting.
🖋 Folks tell me I give to a fault. While I may not be stingy with money and all, my pens are sacred and I’m selfish with them 🙈. If I happen to borrow you one, I ensure I get it back. 🖋
🎶 I have a weird/wide taste in music, from different ages/genre. You need only to check out my playlist to confirm that. If it’s good music, it goes for me. Meanwhile, you are likely to catch me listening to oldies more than contemporaries. 🎶
📙 One of the best gifts you can give me is (good) books. I value books a lot! I mean hardcopies. The feel, smell of it and the pride of ownership. Soft copies aren’t my deal. I think of myself as a bibliophile. 📙
👚 I can do all chores (I mean all) but not laundry. Interestingly, if I have to do it the traditional way, I get to do it myself because I don’t like others doing it for me. Strange? 👚
I’m still very much an awkward hugger 😁. I remember been told by a course mate to learn to be hugged. Very embarrassing moment. But i’ll cut myself some slack as mine isn’t the hugging family. I’m getting better at it though.
Are you the type that feel excited when you are around ‘pleasantly naughty/knotty’ folks? We share a thing in common then.
😎I’m attracted to troublesome folks with positive vibes- folks who don’t give in easily. There is hardly a boring moment with them. 😎
🧓 I’m an old soul trapped in a young body. Yea. My thought process, worldview, manner of behaviour and social conditioning are hardly in tune with that of most millennias. 🧓
🧾I’m a balanced bilingual. I thrive in both my mother tongue (Yorùbá) and my second language (English). Aren’t I blessed? 🧾
☔ I like (the idea of) rain only when I’m indoors when it falls and do not have to step out in it. I hate getting wet, not even slightly. It gives me catarrh. Meanwhile, I love the earthy smell that comes with the rain, especially after a long intermission. ☔
🕺 I can’t dance to save my life and that’s that about that. Please don’t leak this secret. 🕺
➿ The texture of my voice is auto tuned. I’m used to people (especially new acquaintance) telling me I have a feminine voice, especially over the phone. It often bothers me. Sometimes, I wish it could be a little deep. ➿
🍲 I don’t think I can eat without engaging in another activity at the same time. I’m either reading or seeing a movie while at it. Actually, I’m eating as I type this post 😂
🍉 Watermelon is my recent addiction in fruit. To think I used to detest it back in the day… 🍉
Okay. I think I’ve given you enough info about me to last you for a while. To the revealing of wild weird facts there is no end. We’ll take it up from here soon enough.
Meanwhile, I’ll love to know some random facts about you in the comment section. What about you is strange/weird?
Thank you for your long-suffering with my erratic aspect.
It’s good to be back!
