Mr Man Bag himself tagged me. So here goes
FOUR THINGS I’M PASSIONATE ABOUT
1. My Health - I'm not a gym buff or a health nut but I do like to take care of myself. So I don't eat junk food, go to the gym 4-5 times a week, drink alcohol once a week or less, don't use sugar, don't cook/eat red meat at home, take vitamin supplements, avoid canned foods, love fresh fruit and try to sleep at least 7 hours daily. But other than that I'm just like the rest of you.
2. Sci-fi/fantasy - I'm a certified nerd, my life just doesn't feel complete if I'm not indulging in any of the two at any given time.
3. News/Information - I love to know what's happening in the world and I love to learn. So it's nothing weird for me to read like 5 plus new sites every morning.
4. Black/African Empowerment - I think that there is so much better and further we can do as a people. So I feel strongly about issues that affect us directly.
FOUR WORDS OR PHRASES THAT I USE A LOT
2. Hmph - This is not a word per se but I use it when I chat online quite a bit.
3. Conyo - This is a spanish swear word
4. Kubaff - This one never grows old
FOUR THINGS I WANT TO DO BEFORE I DIE
1. Go sky diving - The experience of just being so far up in the sky is life changing to say the least.
2. To Choke Someone Out like in the vid below
Yes I'm a psycho, so sue me!
3. To take a year off everyday life and just travel the exotic parts of the world - The hum drum of everyday life terrifies me, and I would like to get out and about before I am boxed in with a marriage, mortgage and kids (shivers).
4. To do something that would earn me short term fame - Yes I'd like to enjoy the good life that comes with being famous and recognized just for a short time and then go back to being everyday me before it gets boring or goes to my head.
FOUR THINGS THAT I’VE LEARNT FROM THE PAST
1. Hurting People Hurt People - The more baggage and hurt someone is carrying from the past, the more likely the are to bring drama to your life. Call me harsh but I give such people a wide berth esp when it comes to relationships.
2. Common Sense Is Not Common - I look at the things that people do all the time, and this becomes clearer and clearer everyday.
3. If A Woman Asks You If She Is Hot Just Say Yes - Do not give an honest answer or attempt to rationalize the answer. Say Yes and smile, it shall save you alot of trouble.
4. Sex Just Isn't Worth The Trouble It Brings - Through my general observations and personal experiences, sex just brings too much drama to the table. Whether you are in a relationship or not, it just brings too many issues, abstinence is just so much more appealing.
There, I'm done!
