Day 4

My Addictions…

Ahhh…  1/10th of our journey completed… *looks for halo* *doesn’t find it* *ties scarf* I thank God for watching over me and the crazy people that read my blog. They are all stupid and mad and jobless, and I thank you God for giving me friends like them.

When I wrote the topics for my 30-day blog series, I always knew day 3 was gonna be one of the most read posts, and you guys didn’t disappoint.  Thanks for the support.

Today’s post:  My addictions.  According to Wikipedia, an addiction is physical and psychological dependence on psychoactive substances like alcohol, tobacco, heroin and other drugs. Modern definitions now also include gambling, food, sex, pornography, computers, internet, work, spiritual obsession and shopping.

Fortunately & unfortunately, I do not understand most of what is in the previous paragraph… I wish there was Wikipedia in Pigdin… Make boys like me see read… How they want make I know wetin be Internet? E be like say na that thing wey dem dey put inside mosquito net but I no too sure…

Everybody has an addiction, and though I’m not your regular Joe, I have some addictions of my own. They are normal, good addictions, now destructive or weird addictions like some people. My momsie suppose even enter blog at this point. She has a very weird addiction: Africa Magic. Mrs George can watch Africa Magic like say tomorrow no dey. If DsTV talk say them wan delete Africa Magic today, I sure say my mama go carry placard go Multichoice office go appeal…

My greatest addiction has to be music… I can listen to music all day. I can? Wetin I dey talk sef? I DO listen to music all day. A day hardly passes without me adding a new song to my phone. I rip songs of NotjustOk and other music blogs (An honest criminal is better than a dishonest one, right? 😉 ). Youtube sef is not left out. God, my list of piracy crimes because of music are endless… In the 2nd semester of my 3rd year in Unilorin, I can see I bought a new ear-piece virtually every Friday… Whenever my ear-piece spoils, my mood always turns into extra-cranky. The only thing on my 8GB memory card is music and pictures, and it’s almost full. This is definitely one addiction I’m never getting rid of.

Next up on the list is video games… My addiction to video games is epic… It has reduced a lot (I don dey mature small small), but I still play a lot of video games… I’m into video games so much it hurts deeply in my heart whenever I lose a match. Last Ramadhan before this one, I remember a day when I ate Sahur and I played Football Manager non-stop till Iftar. Didn’t have my bath, pray, or even stand up for any reason. Just laid on my bed screaming and clicking for 14 straight hours…. Baba God, you can like to help me reduce this one small… Just small o, abeg….

I would be lying if I said I wasn’t addicted to Twitter. I cannot thank God enough for the life of the person that developed it. God will bless you sir. In fact, if you want I’ll happily give you the hand of my sister in marriage… She’s a very fine girl sir… I really think I would have jumped off 3rd Mainland bridge out of boredom, if I didn’t have a Twitter account… My battery dies everyday because of this social site… I say “Good morning” on Twitter before I go and greet Momsie in her room. Hell, I bought my BB so I could use Ubersocial… One can’t really blame me though. Twitter is fun. Mad, crazy, undiluted fun. From the hilarious tweets of some people to the extra dumb tweets of some other people (I have sworn to Obatala that I will not mention names), from the excessive flirting and setting of P’s to the crazy and outrageous twit-fights, I have to say my life is a whole lot more fun with Twitter. And I’m an addict. I’m  currently going through the Ugwu Princess saga… I must not carry last…

Hmmm… That’s about it… That’s what I do with my life… I have one more addiction, albeit a minor one: Girls. Not girls per se, but flirting with girls. I can be really sweet when I want to, and that’s often most of the time. There’s this particular kick I get from making a girl like me (don’t blame me o… Na person do me like this o…) . My best-friend is even a girl. I genuinely love her though… Most of the rest na just play-play…. I’m beginning to stop sha… One Ibo girl like this is attempting to steal my heart… Don’t worry, if her robbery attempt is successful, I go send Invitation card to all of una…

I think I’m gonna be making shout-outs to the people that keep me going every day, and today’s goes to my cousin/editor @IamSodiq and @Tweetmeistar for forcing me to write every day…. That reminds me, @Segun_ Stealing will not help you.

Till Tomorrow… *throws two fingers in the air* Peace!
