Get to know me tag

get to know me

Hello there. As I ease my way back into this space, I thought it only fair to do something fun yet a bit personal. I wish to let you know me a bit better through a ‘get to know me tag’ that I picked from here. I however removed a question or two that I felt were a bit repetitive.  Let’s just go straight into it.

  1. Are you named after anyone? Yes. I got my middle name from my dad’s paternal grandmother. I unfortunately never met her, though it is said she was a strong woman.
  1. When was the last time you cried? About a month ago. I used to consider crying as a sign of weakness and would fight against all odds. Now, I consider it as a way of acknowledging my feeling and just letting it out.
  1. Do you have kids? If no, how many do you want? Yes, I do. I have the most precious son, who just lightens up my life.
  1. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself? Definitely. I am a good friend. I will listen when needed, reproach when necessary and down for a good time wherever and whenever possible.
  1. Do you use sarcasm a lot? Yes, I do. Amazingly though, way less than I did in my teenage years.
  1. What’s the first thing you notice about people? How they treat others, myself included. I think it tells a lot about a person.
  1. What is your eye color? Brown
  1. Scary movie or happy endings? Funny thing, I cannot watch a scary movie. Never have been able to and probably never will. If I watch even a few snippets I get nightmares. So, for this, definitely happy endings.
  1. Favorite smells? Never quite thought about it, but I would have to say citrus especially for my cleaning products and sweet for most others.
  1. What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home? Europe.
  1. Where were you born? I was born and raised in Nairobi. I have quite literally spent most of my life in this city.
  1. What’s your zodiac sign? Do you believe in it? Some horoscopes categorize me a Scorpio and others as a Libra. It doesn’t matter though because, no, I don’t believe in it.
  1. What are your hobbies? Dancing, reading and watching movies
  1. Do you have any pets? No, I love animals but I am not responsible enough to keep a pet, I also doubt my landlord would be OK with be keeping them.

  1. Who was your first best friend? My neighbor Agnes. We lost touch though when they moved.
  1. How tall are you? Given my height, this should probably be phrased how short are you. I am 5’ 2”
  1. What is the least favorite thing about yourself? I am not good at processing emotions. I can be a bit robotic at times and plan out what needs to be done given a situation and deal with the emotional burden when everything is settled and I cannot escape it anymore. I am working on improving on it though.
  1. Funniest moment throughout School? Hands down, me fearing my mother more than the deputy principal. This lady tried to tell me to go home like the rest of my friends and I did not board.

  1. Favorite memory from childhood? My mother bringing us treats for our birthdays. Then the four of us would sing happy birthday and we were always happy. We never had a birthday party and we never felt we needed it. We looked forward to each other’s birthday just to enjoy this simple ritual.
