20 Random Facts About Me

Fabiyi Toluwalase Random Facts

I see no reason why anyone would want to know even one fact about me, let alone 20. People, my life is boring! That should about sum my whole life up. But since you’re here and I’m here too, I might as well just spill some random facts about myself. With that said, let’s knock this out of the park, shall we?

1 – My names are Fabiyi Toluwalase

I can hear someone say in their mind (yeah, I’m psychic like that) “But, Tolu, that was not a tad close to random!”  Oops! My bad, I guess that means we have to start over. So how about the following for random?

1 – I once wanted to become a bus conductor. Don’t blame me, I was young and impressionable.

2 – I’m not good at calling to check up on folks. I sometimes question the purpose behind my owning a phone. If not making calls were a paying job, Dangote would rank below me on the rich list.

3 – I don’t like appearing in photographs, it terrifies me. I’d rather be on the other side of the camera, taking pictures of other people.

4 – I can crush for Africa. Yes! But I have also mastered the art of ‘uncrushing’ – if anything like that exists.

5 – I’m a good listener when I want to be. Other times, I am a faux good listener.

6 – I love junk food. The negative publicity notwithstanding, I remain a loyalist to junk food.

7 – Arguments are not my strong point. The best points always come to my mind long after the argument has ended and everyone involved has moved on to other things.

8 – My Achilles Knee? Free and unlimited internet.

9 – I’m an introvert. But sometimes I exhibit extrovert behaviors so well I begin to feel like a fraud. Like, I’m no longer being loyal to the introvert family.

10 – I dislike coffee. I particularly find its smells – read odour – offensive, it makes me nauseous.

11 – A bossy attitude, nagging, insensitivity and endless and senseless chatter sit atop my list of pet peeves.

12 – I am creatively insecure. I am chronically creatively insecure. If I could leverage it financially, I would settle for being a closet artist.

13 – I hate online group chats. They are so rowdy, it makes no sense. Most especially, Whatsapp – partly because its whistleblowing policy means you can’t exit a group discretely.

14 – I am extremely self-contained, a lot of my living happens inside my head.

15 – I’m not good at committing numbers to memory, I find it very hard.

16 – Save for when I’m on certain types of medication, I hardly sleep during the day. To me, naps and siestas are an alien culture. And it’s not like I do much of sleeping at night either.

17 – Long distance relationships are a no-no for me. Reason being that I adjust to people’s absence real quick. I hardly miss people when they are absent.

18 – I sweat on my palms and foot. It becomes profuse whenever I’m feeling nervous.

19 – I’m passive aggressive.

20 – I lost one random fact about myself. If found, kindly insert here.

I know most people would attach at least one beautiful picture of themselves, most likely shining teeth or pouting, to posts like this one. But guess what? I am so unlike most people. Hence, this is all you’ll get.

      Hey Adetola, thanks for taking time out to read, I appreciate. And, the few differences notwithstanding, we could still be twins. Maybe not just identical…

      By the way, I checked your blog and your post on the list of books you have enjoyed reading this summer… Awesome!

    You and I are alike in so many ways, it’s uncanny. I just wouldn’t blatantly admit many of them to myself.
    Plus I like coffee. Not crazed about the smell though. But I like coffee.
    The rest, I could say you just copied my 20 facts and reposted it.
    I should end on a sign out note but…

    Wow! So, Lex Ash, you are saying save for my dislike for coffee, we are very much alike? That’s interesting.

    Thanks for taking time out to read too. Peace

    LOL…Interesting read, Biyi. Not sure we talked more than twice while in school so it was hard trying to place these random facts in perspective. Nonetheless, a true nice read.

      Evening “My Oga.” Funny, I don’t even remember us ever talking. I’m a recluse like that, so it’s understandable the difficulty of putting outlined facts to perspective. Thanks for taking time to read and the engagement is really appreciated.
