I was tagged by a popular blogger you know as YNC but whom I call Chibabe..lol. She is defintely a sweety so check out her blog.
The rules are simple, just mention 10 random things about myself.
1-I have Synesthesia; in simple language, I see colors when I hear words and I can actually taste sounds. Wait,it is not some debilitating brain disease,it's a simple mix up in the wiring of the brain and it tends to run in families. There are different types but the above 2 are the ones I have. My earliest memory of having this is in kindergarten, my mouth would water uncontrollably whenever my teacher used chalk on the board. it was too distracting and I couldn't find peace till I tasted it Yuck!
2-I can eat cereal 24 hrs a day!
3- Despite my sophistication,I am a traditional wife at heart. I love cooking, cleaning and basically taking care of my hubby and son.
4-I won't lie, I get a bit bothered when I see Nigerians in relationships with non-nigerians.
5-I am the only black female resident physician in my hospital, when I don't wear my white coat, people mistake me for everything from a nurse, to a aide, to a tech.
Quick story: I was approached by a nurse last night who asked if i had moved a patient to his room already. i calmly turned to her and said " I am a doctor", she glanced and my badge and screamed in fear saying "I am soo sorry, please forgive me, you are not wearing your coat." I told her I didn't feel disrespected,and gave her a quick 1 arm hug. I walked away knowing in my head that I STILL am not going to wear my coat..lol
6- I associate life experiences with music and scents, as a youngster, I tended to wear 1 perfume/splash with 1 guy. When I ended a relationship, I would throw away whatever perfume i wore while with the guy and never go back to it. Now I wear one main scent and it is associated with the hubster, i guess I will be wearing it for life! Amen
7-I can't deal with too many intimate friends at once; I tend to give my all (loyalty, love etc) to whatever friends I have at the moment. The max of close friends I have had at once is 2. On the other hand, having a hand full of acquaintances isn't a problem.
8-I am very sensitive to my family, but to the outside world, I am an unbreakable BRICK HOUSE!
9- I have a heart for women, marriage and relationships.... I could go on and on and on for days about the topics
10-As a doctor, my heart is with the poor and under served and I will probably end up working with refugees
So, there you go....10 random things about me.
