I’ve always been an open book, but for those who don’t know me (and wish to find out more about myself), here are a few random facts about me!
I have an intense love for nuggets – which my mother has tried to wean me off plenty of times with no success. I pity the fool that tries!
I am Ghanaian-Zimbabwean-Barbadian due to fact that I hold two passports (one from Barbados and the other from Ghana) but was born in Zimbabwe where I lived for the first 4 years of my life.
I was inspired to blog not because I travel frequently but because a dear friend thought I was good enough to blog on her website – and then she paid me for it!
I get cold easily – no seriously, it’s ridiculous. Thankfully I live in the Caribbean!
With that being said, I’ve never travelled to a country during the winter. I haven’t built up to courage as yet!
I fall asleep within minutes of watching a movie – any movie.
I have a slight lisp – don’t judge me.
I am very chatty, plus I talk extremely fast especially when I am passionate about something. Most people either pick the sense from the nonsense or they are left in awe.
I’m not afraid of heights nor insects – although I rather not be surprised by them. Rather I am afraid of failure – like most people in the world.
I love Amaretto sours and milky liqueurs!
I eat very little at any given time – a 5-year-old probably eats as much as I do.
which brings me to the fact that I’m extremely light and I’ve been working on gaining weight/muscle so that I can donate blood;
Because my blood type is O neg – universal donor!
I believe everything in life happens for a reason.
I am hardly ever upset/sad.
I don’t eat a lot of chocolate because it hurts my teeth.
I’m a romantic – just ask my boyfriend!
I have a Bachelors in Psychology and a Masters in Psychology. One day I’ll like to pursue a Ph.D. in psychology – only so I can be called a Dr. Chikowore. How cool would that be!?
I am the only child – and I like it that way until I met my boyfriend’s sister. She’s the only person who made me reconsider being an only child.
I’d try anything that is flavoured with Vanilla or Strawberry – anything!
I’m not a fan of desserts unless it’s apple crumble, apple pie or banana bread. Therefore, it’s not a surprise that I hate birthday cake – I just really dislike icing but a plain vanilla cake or nothing at all is perfect – if you really want to surprise me get me a sushi cake!
I’m very loyal – to a fault.
I can usually be found laughing – it’s infectious I’d like to think!
My special power is ‘breaking the ice’.
A room full of people sitting in silence (except when necessary) is extremely unsettling for me.
Due to my lengthy and unusual name (in the island of Barbados), I’ve accumulated quite a number of nicknames – Bernie, Bernz, Miss B, B, Little Miss Sunshine and that’s just a few!
My favourite shoe – converse but I wear a lot of heels because I’m short!
I see the glass half full rather than half empty.
I always joke and say that I have horrible eyesight but I’m simply a nearsighted individual who hates seeing blurred images!
I never watch horror movies – ever!
