Have you ever felt like you don’t know much about me? To help you know me better, I answered 25 personal questions truthfully below;
1. Do You Have Any Nicknames?
I have quite a few and they are all attributed to my name, Mariam. My nicknames are; Mimi, Mims, Mary, Marim.
2. Which City Did You Grow Up in?
I grew up in Lagos, Nigeria but my secondary school was in Ota, Ogun State and I spent six years there.
3. When is Your Birthday?
I was born on the 8th of October and as cliche as this sounds, 8 is my lucky number. My star sign is Libra and I believe I exhibit most of the traits.
4. How Tall Are You?
I am 163.5cm tall. I thought I was short for a long time because I remember being pushed to the front of the line in Secondary school but it turned out my height is within the average height for a female.
5. What is Your Shoe Size?
This is so random but that’s the point of this right? I wear size 39, UK size 6. My shoe size is common and some times I get unlucky when I’m shopping.
6. What Phone Do You Have (Apple or Android)?
I currently use an iPhone 8 but I’m hoping to change it to an iPhone X solely because of the portrait photography feature #TeamApple.
7. Were You Ever A Scout or A Brownie?
No, but I was a member of The Red Cross Club and we had a cool uniform too. I remember going for a horrible excursion in Primary School my friends assured me they were going to come to too but they didn’t. I was the youngest person in the camp for five days among Secondary school students. I guess you can call that bravery because I could have left, but I didn’t.
8. Coffee or Tea
Tea, please. I’m a tea lover. I drink at least one cup of tea a day. Tea soothes me and also keeps me going. I love tea so much that I wrote a blog post about it.
9. What’s Your Favourite Thing To Have For Breakfast?
I don’t eat breakfast! I fast intermittently every day and my eating window starts at lunch. When I go on holiday though, I have breakfast sometimes because it’s paid for. If I have to eat in the morning, I’d have bread or hash browns, an assortment of sliced fruits and a cup of tea.
10. Are You More of A Tidy Person or A Messy One?
Tidy, and it gets me in trouble. I tend to pack things that are still in use and clean places that are already clean subconsciously. I actually don’t mind clearing or cleaning as long as it isn’t taken for granted.
11. Are You An Introvert or Extrovert?
I’m a little bit of both, I guess you can call me an ambivert. Some of my friends will argue that I’m talkative while other people will say I’m too quiet. I find myself doing things now that I didn’t do years ago like starting conversations, initiating meetings and addressing a crowd. I have definitely evolved over the years but I can’t still say I’m an extrovert.
12. What Did You Want To Be When You Were Younger?
I know this may be strange but I never knew what I wanted to be when I was younger. I always admired people who knew and wondered why I didn’t. I chose commercial class in Secondary school just because and I chose to study HR just because too, but I ended up liking it. Writing wasn’t planned too and I’m still winging it till today.
13. Do You Prefer To Bath or Shower?
Shower! It’s just faster and simpler. There’s no time to take a bath every day. I’m due a soak though and writing this just made me realize it.
14. Books or TV?
Books!!! I love reading. It’s only if you’re new to my blog that you wouldn’t know this. Books give me so much information and knowledge to last a lifetime. Always fully booked!!!
15. Cats or Dogs?
Dogs, please. Cats can be cute, I’ve held one before and even played with her but if I had to have a pet at home, I’ll choose a dog. Cats give me the creeps. Sorry, cat lovers.
16. Are You On Time or Always Late?
I hate when I’m kept waiting so I try to avoid keeping people waiting at all times. I’m usually on time to work and meetings. The only thing I’m not on time to is parties.
17. How Many Piercings Do You Have?
I have a bit of an obsession with ear piercings. For now, I have four piercings on my left ear and three on my right ear but I plan to add one to each ear very soon.
18. Do You Still Watch Cartoons?
Yes, I still watch cartoons. I’m not a fan of the new cartoons kids watch these days but I like the classics like Tom & Jerry and I enjoy watching animated movies such as Coco, The Incredibles, Moana, Sherlock Gnomes, to mention a few.
19. What’s Your Favourite Series?
It’s hard to choose one but I love series about crime scenes and investigation. So you can easily find me watching NCIS and CSI. I love Chicago PD and I still watch it. Voight is a badass boss and cop. I also love GOT and I’m currently watching the new season. I watch a ton of others and even some ratchet shows like LHHATL & LHHH.
20. What’s Your Favourite Way To Spend Your Free Time?
Can I include sleeping? I feel like I don’t get enough sleep so when I have free time, I catch up on some snooze. I also use my free time to write, catch up on series and hang out with friends. I love exploring new places in Lagos and blogging about it.
21. What’s The Thing You Can’t Leave The House Without?
My phone. I use my phone for so many things besides social media and the app I use most on it is Notepad. If I forget my phone at home, I am guaranteed to have a very odd day. I hope you’re with me on this😃
22. What is One Food That You Refuse To Eat?
I’m pretty adventurous when it comes to food and I don’t think there is anything I wouldn’t eat or at least try besides pork or pig produce.
23. If Money Were No Object, What Would You Get For Your Next Birthday?
This is a tricky question. What about just investing the money? Alright, maybe a new car and a new house painted white on the inside.
24. Can You Whistle?
Unfortunately, I cannot whistle. I wish I could and would love to learn. I also cannot ride a bike and neither can I swim. These are things I really want to learn how to do.
25. What Is At The Top of Your Bucket List?
Skydiving. I can’t wait to experience this and blog about it.
