NA JEJE I SIDDOWN O!




wey SIRIUS con tag me...gimme award... so here goes nothing

15 HONEST THINGS ABOUT ME..

1. When I hear people talk about their relationship with God, I get envious because I don’t have the kind of relationship with HIM..and I really want to but am not making any effort..and I don’t know why…I love God and he has been very good to me and my family but I want to love him to the extent that nothing else really matters.I don’t go to church frequently and make excuses about not having anything to wear and hate it when people ask me if I went to church. I know the most important thing is having a relationship with HIM but going to church is also important.

2. I used to have low-self esteem but in the past few years my confidence level has risen…but sometimes I still get insecure. If I go out and no one stares at me I feel really bad, like I don’t look nice..i know its silly but it happens…but there are some days were I feel like the best thing since ofada rice and couldn’t care less if people stared at me cause I know I look good.

3. I get angry easily….but its usually little things that piss me off..my father says I need to pray about it..

4. Even though I get angry easily I don’t stay mad for too long..u could annoy me and make me angry but the next 5 mins I’ve forgotten about it.

5. I am a loner. I have friends and hang out with them but ultimately I prefer my company and find solitude relaxing.

6. I have finally accepted myself, the way I look and all.In the past I was a very depressed human being. I am 6ft 1 and a big girl…a size 16…in the past I used to fantasize a lot about being slimmer and had a traffic stopping booty to match my huge mammary glands…and when I walk id be the cynosure of all eyes and everyone would love me and blah blah blah…I even used to plan when I would fantasize..like if I was in school..and was having a bad day…id make myself happy with the fact that when I get home id fantasize about being slim..and that would brighten me up and give me something to look forward to. Although now am slimmer than I used to be…I have accepted myself the way I am..if I lose weight..fine..but if I don’t…I am not going to beat myself about it and be unhappy.

7. I hate it when people act like they know me. DRIVES ME MAD. I had this huge argument with my brother because of this and we didn’t talk for a while..my own brother oh..talkless of sum random person who isnt as close to me as my brother…people who presume stuff but just don’t know the half of it….GOSH I CAN STRANGLE SUCH A PERSON…and they just keep yaking and yaking ‘I know you laide! I know u more than u know urself’…mchew!!! Okoma! (that’s pig in Afrobabes language)

8. I find it hard to hate/hate on someone….i think its just a waste of time. Thats why I don’t understand those anonymous peeps that leave mean comments on blogville, facebook or in real life.…I think its such a lily livered thing to do. The only time I did something like that was in secondary school when I wrote letters to some chic saying nasty things about her and lying that the letters were from the boys in our class. And turning everybody against some chic in my room…not my proudest moments…

9. I call myself an introverted-extrovert…hope it makes sense to you. The people who don’t know me think I am quiet while does who know wish I was. I don’t open up till I am in the midst of people I care about n who care about me, people I feel comfortable around. That’s why if you ask some people, they’d say laide doesn’t talk…shes quiet..shes shy.. while others will say I belong at yaba left.

10. One thing I like about myself is that I have a mind of my own. So I never had the problem of peer pressure. I cannot be easily swayed.

11. I am not a great fan of sex but I like thinking about it and fantasizing.

12. I am very emotional.

13. I am very stubborn

14. I come off as a snob, unfriendly, anti social.....but am not all of those things.I want to make friends sometimes but don’t know how to go about it. I don’t like making the first move…I know that’s bad..you cant always expect the other person 2 extend the hand of friendship..but I am trying to change.So I might be in a gathering acting like I don’t want anybody to talk to me or don’t care if they do..but deep down I wish they would…

Okay, I didn't want to distribute that particular info earlier sent, so I deleted it ;)

I think you are me! I can so relate to "being terrified of extending the first hand of friendship" I think it's just a fear of rejection..lol And also at being a certain way with some people and another way with other people. Infact I am convinced there are 2 people living in my head.

simplegal said...

FIRRRRRSSSSSSSSSSSTTTTTTTTT *Dancing galala* Shebi I'm first if the first comment was deleted?

simplegal said...

Nefertiti why would you give me that hope just to break me down :(

It's scary how much we're alike, but I guess I was begining to realize that form my 10 honest things post.
I'm get angry really easy too and I hate when people act like the know me too!

L-VII said...

Hmmn, I thought that was thoroughly engaging..... it came across as honest.

Original Mgbeke said...

Very interesting. Like you, I don't stay mad for long.
Are you scared of planes or you've never had an opportunity to fly somewhere?
Yaaay to accepting yourself! :-)
I do enjoy Solitude too, which peeps never believe 'cos I seem to be very social.
Having a mind of your own is indeed very wonderful.

So you are 6'1, do you wear heels?

JustDB said...

Nice stuff....
Can relate to number 1 -- hopefully my current roll will last...Also can relate with #5 and 8...Guess #8 is just th pragmatic thing to do -- it a waste of energy and effort to hate on peeps...

exschoolnerd said...

Insighful..hnnnm now i know a lot more about ya!!
lol@ "NA JEJE I SIDDOWN O!"

Anonymous said...

I am so not stalking you lol...but I have sent/left you (a clue) a msg and a comment. I feel you on this post, I was so insecure most of my life...unlike you I had the opposite body type, good figure, no boobs, long legs blah blah but I was rail skinny and everyone admired me for it. I was tired of hearing oh you have such a nice stomach (or whatever) i'd give anything to have that. In my mind I would think I wish I had your body and your social life. I couldn't understand what was wrong with me...things are better now (i've added a bit of weight) but it still haunts at times.
Keep being you, from your blog I can see you've learnt the importance of loving you and the relief that comes with it.

Tigeress said...

Do i sense more e-love connections here? SCribbles? or this another Scribbles?

My dear u sound so much like me! With temper, getting over it quickly, accepting myself the way i am (thanks to my ass), i love my own company, stubborn, emotional etc.

Asper ur relationship with God. Most of us strubble with that. But with time it gets better- u have to be determined. Get a prayer book u can read. Listen to audio tapes. Check out http://thecounselorandherthots.blogspot.com/2009/02/fighting-temptations-no-more-sheets.html. And fast and pray.

Tigeress said...

And o yeh, congrats on the award. :) and thanks for stopping by- even tho u thot there were some lele actions going on. lol!

Kaydee said...

Woah!!!I Remember when 99% of all da SMS on my phone were yours.I miss em better days.

Freddie said...

New here and loving the blogville, "Na jeje u siddon"... you for "jejelly" refuse the award na... Abi? Lol. Anyways, see how it turned out?... We now know lots more about you that might just take people or that special someone a step closer to understanding you better. Most times, our uncertainties pose a defensive wall... That which subconsciously prevents others from coming in. Live life like you're free from the imprisoned mind... It's all in the mind.
PS: Congrats on your awards ooo... some birthday you'll be having then... abi???

LusciousRon said...

Congrats o! I feel you on No 7. People can be so stupid. How can you know me better than me?

Its good you are over your insecurities. Be the best you can at all times. Have a fun week.

Hope the holiday is going better than you thought.

TDVA said...

interesting read, ex. u are an open person so most of this is stuff we know...still love that u did it all the same. (not trying to say i know you...lol)

Daydah said...

Found your blog from agbero's award post, and also commented on ur facebook note yesterday. Its funny how accurate u are about seeming quiet to some people and belonging to yaba left to your close pals...ok, be sure i will extend that 'first hand of friendship' when next i see u.

Anne Divine said...

Laide...
Firstly can u send msgs in this blogville like the way we send msgs on FB?
Secondly u need to give me the tips on how u overcame ur lipgloss addiction (I have used 4lipglosses in 60 days) that is by the way when I am ready to give it up which I doubt in like forever.hehehe
thirdly I identify with No. Never been on a plane but why do pple attack me n think am just bein cynical when I say it in public???
