So I got nominated for a Liebster award. I think I’ve already stressed enough how much I think “Liebster” sounds like exotic European food on Twitter so I won’t do any stressing on here. Y’all should know at this point that food is very very important to me. Like I actually have real-life feelings for food, I get sad when we break up and I watch sloppy movies and cry into my pillow and all that but I digress. I’m s’pose to answer a series of question that Ore (the giver of my award) asked so I can win the food I mean the award. It really hurts that there won’t be money attached to the award, or food even so I’m going to print out this picture and frame it so I can tell my future Dalmatians their mommy is smart and she won a Liebster. So here it goes…
If you had all the money in the world but still had to have some kind of job, what would you choose to do?
I’d write short stories and attempt poetry. Then I’d do small concerts (like 100 people max) where I get to sing my experiments to the audience without having stage fright because there are only 100 people in attendance. Then I’d want to model for a boot company. I like them cowboy boots a lot and I think it’s really unfair that the weather in Nigeria won’t let me buy them, much less wear them. So, yeah, I’d like to model for a boot company cos I love boots. I’d have 3 jobs (score!)
What do you believe stands between you and complete happiness?
Self, a lot of times. Self sabotages
What small thing could you do to make someone’s day better?
Give them one monster hug and refuse to let them go even when they pretend to be dying. It works every time.
Is the Country you live in really the best for you?
In all honesty, no. Maybe last year it was the best for me but these days half the time I’m biting my bottom lip wishing I could attend Living Proof Live in Texas, intern at Passion Church (in Texas) sit in Starbucks and write like Angie does (in Tennessee) make snowballs and play with friends in the snow, etc. You get the point.
What life lesson did you learn the hard way?
That some people won’t always love me back no matter how hard I try to make them
Which activities make you lose track of time?
Swimming, eating, sleeping (duh), blog hopping, tweeting, singing, writing
What is important enough to go to war over?
What is the most desirable trait another person can possess?
An honest-to-God love for God
Bonus: a ridiculously delightful sense of humour
What is the simplest truth you can express in words?
That grace is free and true love exists.
What are you proudest of in your life?
So the deal is I have to nominate other people for the Liebster thing. Here’s my list:
Okaima: because she’s a great short story writer and I look up to her and cos she has a ridiculously delightful sense of humour and cos she loves cake and Coke
Efe: because he’s young enough to be funny, old enough to be wise and man enough to believe in God
Tomi: because she gets to travel to exotic places and gets to twitpic tulips and I don’t (boo)
Adora: because she’s got an artistic mind and she thinks black lipstick is crayyy
Dami: because he made me look at the Creation story differently, more clearly
Sammy: because he writes pretty well and isn’t afraid to ask questions
Tokunbo: because he never has time to write on his personal blog
This interesting (like, salad kind of interesting) collection of people gets to answer my questions *insert evil laugh here*
What is most important to you right now?
What is your love language?
How do you feel about food?
What’s the one quote you live by and who said it?
What’s the hardest lesson you’ve learned?
What do you do when life gives you lemons?
What/who is God to you?
Till I have something remotely interesting to blog, later guys!
