This or That? - Get To Know Me.

olawaliumPosted for Everyone to comment on, 2 months ago6 min read

I can't remember where I saw this but I saved the image and decided to jump in on this one. I did something similar to this many weeks ago, I guess but not as detailed as this because there are so many additions to this one and I love this. Let's get down to brass tacks.


City or Beach?

As much as I love the city, there is nothing more refreshing than spending time out on the beach. I am always a huge fan of nature and I would give anything to be drawn or close to it. I would prefer the beach anytime and any day. I've been there more than twice or so in as many months as possible. There has never been a regret there.


Sweet or Savoury?

I used to like sweet things while growing up and I have since moved on from sweet things. I prefer savoury not just now but even back then. I always love my food being spicy. I grew up eating spicy meals and they say it's my tribe thing. I can remember when I visited my cousins and their mother made a peppery stew by mistake. She was so worried it was too peppery that I won't be able to eat it. I finished eating the meal and she asked me repeatedly if I was fine. They were all stunned when I told them it wasn't peppery enough even though my cousins were busy gulping down water with every bite.

Cat or Dog?

I am a huge fan of dogs. When I finally buy my own house or build one, I would have a lot of dogs in there. I would have different breeds too. Where I came from, cats are frowned at. Not by all people though but they believed that cats can be a fetish. It's a sign that evil is coming hahahaha but as I grew older I stopped believing that lie because cats are just cats; fluffy, smart and cuddly...but I've always loved dogs so I would pick my dogs.

Adventure or Comfort?

Adventure is fun I have to admit. I've seen quite a lot of people go on this spree and I want in. I've always lived in comfort all my life. I want things with ease. I don't like stress. I just want things in the corner of my home without stretching myself. I want to go against my natural self on this one and choose adventure. I want to explore, see the world and do things differently from my natural self.

Books or Movies.

This is a tough one. Both of them have their places and even when movies are made from books, sometimes they don't capture the whole essence of the power of words. I can't seem to choose between these two even though I've been lazy with books lately but I know the importance and value it carries. I want both on this one.

Nights in or Nights out?

From my explanation of adventure and comfort, you can deduce the kind of person I am already. I would prefer nights in on this one. I am not much of an outgoing type. I go out only when it's necessary but I've always loved being home. I don't fancy night-outs. I don't like staying too late outside either, once it is 6 pm or max 7 pm, I want to be home.

Summer or Winter?

I prefer the winter. I love cold weather. I don't mind bathing with warm water or having a warm shower or using the heater or even wearing too many outfits just to keep warm. I just love everywhere being cool or cold... There is this freshness it gives my face without sweating. If I want to sweat it out because I know sweating is good, my warm clothes and warm bath would do that for me and my pores.

Tea or Coffee?

I used to love taking tea while growing up and for some weird reasons I don't fancy tea any longer. I feel like puking when I take it and the taste has never been the same for a very long time. Growing up too, I've always believed coffees are for adults and never tried it. I tried it a few times when I got older but still, not my thing. I've taken some recently, added milk to it and all but I take it occasionally. I prefer to take ginger drinks instead. I won't be able to convincingly pick any from this.

Early Bird or Night Owl?

I know a lot of people would answer this one for me because I stay up late, in fact too late. I would say night owl on this. I prefer working, writing and doing things when everything is pitch dark and quiet. Inspiration flows differently at that time and I don't see myself sleeping early.

Pizza or Pasta?

With my last experience with Pasta that was creamy, I don't think I want to ever try that again. I love Pasta but I want the spicy ones and not the creamy ones. I would go with Pizza this time around but I don't think Pizza is what they are serving us in Nigeria.

Europe or Asia?

Never been to both but it would be an awesome experience to explore both. With a lot of things I've heard about both, I don't think any of them is a bad choice but for the sake of making a choice, I want to explore Europe first.

Spring or Autumn?

I picked winter earlier and spring comes before summer while autumn comes after summer. I love the cool atmosphere and I would pick autumn.

Breakfast or Dinner?

I have heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day but since I sleep late and wake up late also, breakfast is not in the offing for me. I would pick dinner.

This post also appeared here and it's my original work on my blog on Read.Cash.

Thank you for your time.

My pen doesn't bleed, it speaks, with speed and ease.

Still me,

My tongue is like the pen of a ready writer.
