Exciting news guys!!! About two weeks ago, I was nominated for the Creative Blogger Award by fellow blogger Kateri (check out their blog here – https://kateristheories.wordpress.com/) who had these lovely words to say:
“Found your blog early this Easter morning and really enjoyed your poems. They are eloquent and thought provoking. It’s not often I run across poetry with Christian themes. Because of this I have nominated you for the creative blogger award.”
Link to more of my poetry if you’re interested – https://reposedthought.wordpress.com/category/poetry/ Having only started my blog in January, I’m incredibly humbled to be acknowledged in this way. So, as a nominee, the rules are that I get to share 5 random things about myself, and then nominate at least 5 other bloggers for the same award. So here goes 🙂
5 Random Facts About Me
#1. I once believed my older brother was going to eat me as a child. I actually balled my eyes out in tears, only for mum to reassure me he was joking (you believe anything when you’re little #brotherlylove).
#2. (Disclaimer: don’t read if you’re eating)…… I once did a nervous poo in my reception class as I was terrified to ask my “scary” cover teacher if I could go to the toilet. Our normal teacher was off on maternity leave. Looking back, it was clear who ‘did-the-deed’ as a perfect concentric perimeter of classmates with ‘hand-over-nose’ syndrome formed around me. I cleverly (or rather deceptively) blamed it on an apparent ‘rotten egg’ I had for breakfast prepared by my aunty (in reality, it was my cousin that made us breakfast and the eggs were perfectly fine)
#3. I kept a daily diary the whole of last year which essentially gave birth to the idea of this blog. I found it a very useful tool in so many ways (unwinding, reflecting, and as a Christian thinking about God).
#4. In primary, I got 95% for a detailed story I wrote for a creative writing exam called “what I want to be when I grow up .” Amazingly, my path to studying architecture is not far off the ‘artist’ I wrote about in my comparative broken english (will post if I can find it).
#5. Music is a big part of my life, as you may have noticed throughout this blog. I play piano. A year ago started drumming and have recently started learning guitar. I enjoy a rich blend of genres influenced by my upbringing in different places. These include: RnB, hip hop, drum n bass, reggae, gospel, gospel rap, jazz, house, kwaito, ZedBeats (Zambian music), afrobeat, grime, etc, etc…. The list literally keeps on going.
