What You Know 'Bout Me?

  Happy new month guys! If you don't know the song I'm referring to in the title of this post can we really be friends? I kid, I kid guys. It's a line from Lil Mama's song Lip Gloss. The song came out ten years ago and it's definitely a part of my childhood. Speaking of things that came out ten years ago, I only just started watching Gossip Girl this week! Why did it take me so long? I have no idea! But I am so glad that I've realized the error of my ways.

These pictures were taken by my darling friend Daniella when she came to stay with me a few weeks ago. They were taken at the Manchester Art Gallery. If you're ever in Manchester I totally recommend the place. The art pieces there are stunning, it's free entry and it's never crowded. Very nice for aesthetically pleasing pictures too. 

Anyways, here are a couple of things you should probably know about me. xx

1. I'm Nigerian. I'm pretty sure most of you know this already but I'm putting it out there just in case. I should also point out that English is the official language in Nigeria, when I moved to the UK I realized that this is something not a lot of people know. Do you know the number of times someone has stopped me to ask how I speak "such good English". Having said that though, there are a lot and I mean a lot of languages in Nigeria. My language is called Yoruba.

2. My full name is Oluwademilade. It means God has crowned me. That's right guys, I'm a queen. Most people call me Demi, Demss or Demilade.

3. I'm always the last person to find out about cool stuff. I mean, just take a look at the Gossip Girl situation I mentioned above. I always find out about the fun/cool stuff last. Which is why my brother and sister don't rate me at all. 

4.I can't stay mad at people for long. My mum is the same and she always tells me it's a good thing and I suppose to an extent it is, for my mental health and sanity especially. But sometimes I worry that this means people take me for granted as they know that I won't stay mad at them for too long. Then again, no one has ever done something to me that was totally unforgivable. 

Samson & Delilah
5.I love trashy Netflix shows.I assure you, I use the term 'trashy' in an endearing manner.  You know those TV series on Netflix that aren't like the mainstream ones everyone watches? They're my favourite and I don't know how, but I always find them. I would totally suggest Don't Trust The Bitch In Apartment 23, quite a mouthful isn't it? It's such a funny show and I loved all the characters. I do not for the life of me understand why it got cancelled. People loved it! 

6.If my high school life was an American movie, I would be the nerd/geek. Only difference is that I wouldn't be ashamed of this as the geek characters in such movies usually are. I would be a cool nerd, if there was ever such a thing. I've always ADORED going to school. Not to say that there haven't been times I felt like not going but school's always been fun for me for the most part. I embrace my 'nerdiness' completely. 


7.I'm afraid of birds. This particular fact amuses my friends and has made me subject to being laughed at by strangers (in a nice way though). I'm particularly afraid of pigeons and seagulls, especially in this country. They're so bold gosh. I know it's an irrational fear but I really can't help it. I'm the sort of person to cross to the other side of the road if I see a pigeon.  *deep sigh* 


So this was a part-ramble and a part-facts-about me sort of post , thanks for reading to the very end. What are some interesting facts about YOU?

As I edited this post, the news about the shooting in Vegas emerged and I'm incredibly saddened by it. It seems like in every part of the world it's one calamity after the other and it's really scary. God protect us all.

  6. Gossip Girl!!!! hahah you've been sucked into the world like I was :P *I'm trying to stop watching TV shows now though because I have no self-control T_T* // omg people compliment me on my English as well (I look Chinese/Taiwanese (I'm Taiwanese) and I lived in China from middle school to high school, but I was born in the States and lived there for ten years before moving to China). // Your name has such a beautiful meaning! // I wish I was more like you in that you don't stay mad for long. I'm so stubborn and I hold grudges, but I'm trying to be better about that! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's

  10. I too didn't learn about the wonder that is Gossip Girl until earlier this year and I definitely have been missing out - it is such an addictive show hahah. I loved learning about you and think your name is absolutely beautiful both in full and in its other forms:) And I also think that I would be the nerd in a high school movie, but hopefully the type that wears glasses and geeky clothes in school and then amazes everyone by turning up to a party in a beautiful ball gown hahah. Hope you have a great weekend!

  18. Always nice to meet a fellow person who isn't fond of birds. I've tried getting over this fear but its just not worth it tbh. I'll keep crossing the street or ducking low at the beach when i see them. Haha.

    This is such a cute get to know me post. And YES, i'd like the name for the person who gave the go ahead to cancel DTTBinAPT23, i just want to talk. lol. If you like Krysten Ritter, she's also in Jessica Jones which is pretty good!
