UNOFFICIAL SIDE OF ME
When people see me they think I am so hard to deal with but when they get closer or I go to meet them and interact they shout “Wow!” The soft side of me is that I take pleasure in learning and speaking other people’s languages, which they pick interest in me for show that like for their culture and also their food.
As a man who likes to travel a lot within and outside my country, I meet people and share with them on political issues that makes me to know one or two things about the polity as I sometime get involved in such discussions, which I learn also form them.
One amazing thing about me is that I don’t belong to the euphoria of being a fan of any of the big clubs in English Premiership or Spanish La Liga including German Bundersliga, but I can tell you that I have interest in the round-leather game to an extent, and people ask me how do you know these names that are ringing bell in these leagues, I simply answer them that, “I lack time to sit and water the over 90 minutes intense soccer, but get the gist when football enthusiasts and analysts are dissecting a concluded game or the one soon to begin.”
Do you know that as I move out for marketing I don’t keep mute in the reception hall but wants to make friend with the people on the reception counter and their magazines on the table in front of the visitors’ chair. I am simply saying I like making friends and reading magazines, newspapers and catchy portrays on the wall.
Space and time will not permit me to say I am a lover of sports including my traditional swimming, track and field events and polo including others like boxing!
Another funny thing about me is playing like a toddler, especially with my children; talk, sing, crawl and eat like them. Lest I forget, I laugh and like to be serious at the time.
I read my Bible and pray every day including attending and participating in spiritual activities that keep my relationship with my Creator going smoothly and graciously!!
