July 12: Ten Facts about Me (bookish or just general about you facts or ten facts about you as a blogger…whatever you want). Here goes…

Bookish Facts

  • I love buying books but I can’t remember the last time that I read a book that I bought. I always get distracted by books from the library, new releases, gifts from friends and lately, ARCs from NetGalley
  • My favorite book genre is psychological thrillers though I can read any genre… well, apart from fantasy which I am yet to try.

Some More Facts


Sunset at Zanzibar

  • I love traveling. If I had more money, I would travel around the world. I have visited all islands in Kenya and on my 29th birthday, I traveled across the border to Dar Es Salaam and Zanzibar(Tanzania). Most people visit the island for their honeymoons but I decided not to wait.You can read about my trip including the crazy marriage proposal from an island guy over here.
  • I have tried hiking in the past but I realized that I don’t enjoy it as much as just traveling.
  • I am an adrenaline junkie. I mean bungee jumping; zip lining, wild water rafting. I can’t wait to try out some paragliding and skydiving someday. The funny thing is that I had a heights phobia up to my late teens and used to get panic attacks. In my attempt to conquer the phobia, I discovered a new hobby. Now I can’t stop jumping off crazy heights lol
  • I am spontaneous and I have made so many decisions that way. I got a tattoo at 22years old and I can’t really explain the decision (not that I regret it by the way), I moved into my current apartment a week after seeing it. I had no intentions of moving but I saw this new, beautiful apartment and loved the view from the balcony. I ended up losing my deposit on the old apartment but no regrets. I quit my last job and went on vacation without any backup plan. I think I am becoming less spontaneous as I grow older.

Some More Random Facts


  • I love watching crime documentaries and my favorite TV channel is IDx
  • I have been listening to the same kind of music since the 90s. My favorite genre is ol skool(RnB and hiphop). I also like country and some soul music.Here is a post that I did about 90S music.
  • I am an introvert. I spend a lot of time alone and sometimes receiving calls makes me nervous mainly because of the expected small talk. I do chat a lot though.
  • I used to love buying shoes in my 20s and at some point I had over a hundred pairs of shoes. I now have about 20 pairs of shoes only and I haven’t bought any new pair since April (they were really affordable, cute boots so it was justified).
