It's An Easy Choice For Me.

I am doing justice to some interesting questions.

City or countryside?

I know how expensive the city can be but still, I don't want to be far away from civilization and better opportunities too. For me, I would pick the city and others might pick the countryside for reasons best known to them but our choices would always be influenced by who we are, our exposure and our views on certain things. As much as the countryside looks appealing, I still like being in the city.

Things are cheaper there and the ways of life seem healthier and good to some extent but give me the City, please. I sometimes don't like being too relaxed. Keep me on my toes. When I see the bills I have to pay and the responsibilities I have to shoulder, no one would tell me to do more.

Good health or lots of money?

All these people that put impossible choices together, you need to fear God o. Both are important and I wouldn't trade one for another but I think on this choice, it's quite basic anyway...so I would go with good health. Once I have good health and knowing myself that I've never been the lazy type, I know I can make a lot of money in the process too. What's the essence of having a lot of money and yet you are not healthy enough to enjoy it?

Health is being underrated most of the time because we don't know the value of good health until we have to pay for it. Some rich people cannot use the money to cure their loved ones' ailments. There are times that money would be put to shame when you can't do anything about failing health. What's the point of having a lot of money and all you do is keep spending it on your health? Good health please...because I know that the money would come.

Live with your parents or grandparents?

I've never lived with my grandparents. I've always lived with my parents. I've visited my grandmother many times too but I never got to meet my grandfather alive...yes, grandfathers from both sides. I wasn't opportune to meet any of them. I would stick with staying with my parents. I know how indulging grandparents can be. How they cut you some slacks because they don't have the strength to stress things with you but I would still choose to live with my parents over that.

Club or house party?

I've never been to a club before. Oh...scratch that. At the recent wedding I went to two weeks ago, the best man took me around and asked us to visit the club. I reluctantly went while lamenting I've never been to one. The moment we entered, I knew I would hate it and can never be here. We didn't spend up to 30 minutes before they agreed that we should leave. Ah. How do you people cope with loud music and girls parading around? Ah. I couldn't deal. It was the loud music for me. I hated it with the whole of my being and I used to fight a lot with my eldest brother when he would turn the volume of the music in the car so loud. I would always bring it down. What's the point in listening to music when it has to be that loud???

With these few points of mine, I am sure you can understand the choice I would be making here. House party it is and even that one, I'm not guaranteeing 100% presence.

Swimming or yoga?


I tried swimming for the first time in my life last year and it was absolutely thrilling. I enjoyed it a lot even though I wasn't so good at it. You know how you've watched a lot of swimming movies and in your head, you think you are a good swimmer? I tried doing those things that play in my head and noticed I was gulping in water. Hahahaha. I stopped trying and I decided to stick to the basics and enjoyed it. I still want to go back there again... For this one, I'm sticking with swimming even though yoga can be refreshing (so I heard).


Free plane rides or free Uber rides?

Come on... Is this supposed to be an option? Free plane rides, please. What do I do with free Uber rides?

Cleaning or cooking?

I'm not an expert at cooking but I can manage to do things. Cleaning can be fun especially the arranging part too but because I'm not a huge fan of dust, I would stick with cooking.

Good at sports or music?


Everyone knows I love sports. I want to be good at sports. I still joked with someone recently that if I come to this world next, I want to combine the talents of Ronaldo, Messi, Ronaldinho, Okocha and Zidane together.





Late by an hour or early by 30 minutes?

I hate being late. This is not even negotiable. I would rather be early. I once got to an interview 3 hours earlier than usual. I didn't care if it made me look desperate but I would rather be early than late and yes, I got that job.
