Questions You Never Thought To Ask Tag

Hey guys, happy new week. It seems I’m behind on all my tags. I’ve been quite busy with admission and clearance wahala. Oh yes, it seems I’m now an undergrad. Proud student of the University of Benin over here.

Now let’s get to it.

I’ve been tagged by

Claire Yang. Thank you very much. Check out her blog, she writes great poetry.

Now let’s get to it.

Rules:

They are pretty simple.
Answer the following questions.
Tag other bloggers
And they answer the same questions

But from me to you, if you want to interchange the some of the questions with your own when you ask other bloggers, you can. But don’t reduce.

Every tag is supposed to have an official image. I don’t know why this doesn’t.

Questions:

1. What game consoles have you had?

A few. I’ve had an xbox. Then Nintendo ‘Just Dance’.

2. If you could tame any animal into being your pet, what would you pick?

Still thinking 😔

3. Are you a sexual person?

Now, that is too personal of a question, in my opinion.

4. Foods you despise?

I do not like bananas. It’s not a food though, I know. it’s a fruit.

5. Coolest place you’ve ever visited?

I don’t know.  I won’t give the ‘coolest’ title to the places I’ve visited. Some were pretty cool though but coolest is reserved for some where better

6. Why did you first start blogging/YouTube?

I started blogging  mostly because I felt like. I had no idea what I was getting into.

7. Favorite item from closet?

My jeans. I love my jeans.
 
8. Do you prefer a backpack/big bag/small bag/just wallet?

I prefer a small bag. Most things I carry around are my phone, charger, cash, a book and pen. So it must be able to contain those stuffs.

9. Favorite video/computer/phone game?

Do I have a favourite? Hmmm, don’t think so.

10. One celebrity you would sleep with?

Are you serious? None really.

11. Favorite traits for a partner/friend?

Honesty and forgiveness. The last thing I need is a friend who keeps grudges.

12. Your personality?

How do I put it in words? I’m pretty lay back but I set standards for myself and the kind of people I surround myself with. I always put God first. When I want to do something, first question I ask myself, ‘Would God be happy with what I’m about to do?’

13. When’s the last time you took a risk?

My dress to church. A fashion risk.

14. Fashion trend you would never do?

They are a few but I don’t know how to describe them.

15. One physical trait about you that only you notice?

I doubt I have such like that.

16. One emotional trait about you that only you notice?

I don’t care as much as people think I do.

17. 3 weird things about you off the top of your head?

Okay, these things might not be weird but I’m going with popular opinion here.

I tend to laugh at things people don’t think are funny.

I think my laugh is a bit weird.

Sometimes I dance, even when no music is playing. But trust me when I say, I was making my own music in my head.

18. Favorite cheese?

Cheese balls?

19. 3 things you use everyday that you need?

My phone.
My charger.
My Jesus Christ. I don’t think I can survive any day without Him by my side and in my life.

20. Favorite youtubers/actresses/media people?

There is one. She hosted Miss Maliaki, Ghana a few weeks ago. I can’t remember her know. Can you imagine but I’m currently loving her. She also host shows on the Ghana GH1 channel.

21. One thing that makes you happy everyday?

Food.

22. One question you wish you could get an answer to?

One? I have plenty concerning the future.

23. Something about your childhood that affects you today?

My upbringing?

Life isn’t just about living but living it well.

* * *

More Than Just Competing

Competition has a way of bringing out the best in us. We get to see how good we are, because we are made to face different persons with different sort of training, in an unfamiliar environment. It helps us to improve, because we really get to see our weak points and it get us challenged.

There are a lot of competitive platforms opening up here and there, but there are a still lot of us who refuses to participate and put ourselves out there. Bringing the question, why?

So in the last weeks, the teachers in my church announced that ten teenagers would be needed to participate in a Bible Quiz competition with teens from other churches and Christian denominations. At the same time representing the church over there. When this was first announced, there were no willing volunteers.

We’re afraid to try.

A lot of persons tells my elder sister to go for modelling competition and pageantry. Still, my sister is reluctant and once I asked her why and she said “What if I spend a lot of efforts and money and then I don’t win?”

A lot of persons are afraid to try for many reasons and mostly because they fear failing. They are afraid of disappointing themselves and others.

So for this quiz competition, a friend of mine told she wasn’t sure she would  participate because the last time she went on something like it, she didn’t come out successful and let her team down. That bringing another reason, ‘the fear of trying again’. 

You make a lot of mistakes and all the time, the most High God forgives you and gives you another chance. So who are you not to give yourself a second chance? Why would you let that single event bring you down?

Don’t think of it as losing but as an improvement exercise, because you’ve learnt something new.

In every competition, some one has to win and others, lose. If this help; don’t think of it as losing but as an improvement exercise, because you’ve learnt something new.

The truth is, even if we don’t admit it, there are competitions every where – in our work, school, business. Some one else is aiming for that position you are working hard to get. You have a classmates who wants to best you.

 What Helps?

A lot of things; amazing self esteem, working hard, preparedness but mostly, having God in your life. When you have God in your life, letting Him be the Lord of your life, you discover things aren’t so hard with Him.

2 Timothy 1:7 says ‘For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.’

God gives us the boldness to express ourselves and the strength to excel.

So next time when a competitive platform arises be it singing, writing, dancing, quizzes, scholarships, anything at all and you start getting doubts, feeling unsure and uncertain, remember to talk to God, tell Him to take control, then you’ll feel those tangles of fears and insecurities begin to disperse.

* * *

This is it for today. I do hope you liked it. Make sure to tell me what you think about anything and every thing. Also a quick apology, for taking a while to reply some of your comments. Been a bit busy but please still them coming.  

Thanks,

Nessa.

Choose to be Informed.

We are always told that Information is vital to every great man. It’s a key to success and stuffs like that. Well I personally never really keyed into those saying. Until recently I learnt an important lesson. It’s really important for us especially as teens to make an effort to know happenings around us.
I used to be one of those persons who never really bother to watch the daily news, or listen to it on radio, or read the papers. I didn’t care much for current affairs. I had this “I don’t care” attitude going on.

So it turns out the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB), a body over here in Nigeria that work on admitting students to tertiary institutions, had made an announcement that every aspiring university should reupload their O’level results on the JAMB portal.
Time frame: A maximum of two weeks.
Status: Compulsory and very important. Or kiss entering the university this year goodbye.

And there I was completely oblivious. I wasn’t connected to any news media so I had no idea.

It was precisely September 13th and I was talking to a friend of mine. We were chatting and I asked her where she was. She told me she was on her way to her way to the JAMB Office to upload her WAEC (O’level) results again. You should have seen my face when she explained, I was like ‘what???’

So I start calling a lot of friends and started collecting info and it’s a really long story. Not going to bore you with details. The exercise ended Sep. 15th. I did mine Sep. 14th. It was a narrow escape, you would say. When I ask someone why didn’t she tell me about. She told me she thought I knew because well, everyone knew.

There wasn’t really anyone to blame but myself. I chose not to care. I chose not to be informed. My mum was pretty disappointed in me when I told her. It must have seem like an act of unseriousness on my part. I was also disappointed in myself. I didn’t dwell on it though. I just got rid of the I don’t care attitude.

So this is me as I waited in the JAMB office to upload my results. I was with a friend but you can only see her hand

So since then, I make sure whenever I can to watch the daily news, the world news. It’s been an Eye-opener because stuffs happens. A lot of things are happening in the world.
The flooding in Puerto Rico, mass shooting in Las Vagas, the Syrian refuges, the tension between UN and North Korea, human rights abuse and so much more. It makes me really appreciate God for what I have. I might not have the most expensive things but I have a family. A roof over my head. I don’t go to bed on an empty stomach. It’s not because I’m better than those people, not at all, but God’s grace and mercy in my life. And it’s not something I can really explain because I would have to go deep.

I don’t know what you would choose to pick out from this my little write up, but I leave you with this; 

Always care and Always be grateful.
