The “Who” Behind The Screen..

Let me introduce you to that woman who’s just typing away..


Y’ello! Welcome to my blog! Let me apologise, in advance, for the many exclamation marks and emojis that will follow. I can’t help being very expressive. πŸ™ƒ

Anyhoo, my name is Manuella, Manny, for short. I’m a writer, talker, reader, critical thinker, lover of God, outspoken, possibly loud, sometimes quiet individual. Oh, I have a thing for visuals. Visual aesthetics are everything!! I do graphic designs for social media posts. 😎 I am a very deep and random individual, hence, my ceaseless writing and talking. I love to impart knowledge and wisdom, and to receive, equally. I believe very much in philosophy and in the social and human sciences. The human power of understanding is underrated. Topic for another day. πŸ˜„

So………… why write publicly? Yes, I write privately. Everyday. πŸ˜„ But, some of those things touch on topics that I’ve seen a lot of people (including myself) struggle with. I’m in my early twenties, but I dare say I have been through a lot. Let me just tell you, right here and now, “been through a lot” is subjective. Never understate or downplay someone’s life experiences, for whatever reason. Experiences impact people differently. That’s why each person is different and unique in a subjective way. We may go through the same things but, be rest assured that we’d react differently. That’s what makes me “me”, and you, “you”. πŸ™‚

I believe that life is beautiful. You just have to open your eyes, clean and adjust the lens and look. πŸ™‚ I also believe that we should — very carefully — mind the way we handle our own emotions, as individuals, because we unconsciously react to the people around us, from the state in which we are in. Essentially, if you’re not feeling a positive emotion, don’t react to people. You’ll ruin their mood and if you’re lucky, their day. I am a very strong believer of the golden rule: If I don’t want someone to do something to me, I wouldn’t do it to someone else, even the littlest and most insignificant of things. You don’t want someone to dampen your mood or put you off? Don’t dampen someone else’s mood!

Disclaimer: I write majorly based on observation and opinion. That’s not to say that I don’t work with facts. I do.Β But, I’m aware that’s it’sΒ your choice to believe or not, agree or not. πŸ™‚ It’s a free world! I am a realist and although some people think that’s being pessimistic, that’s fine. I say things the way I see them. No need to beat around the bush, really. I don’t believe in fairytales. 😏

Random thought: I used to carry handbags, once upon a time. πŸ˜• But, I guess, the fear of developing a permanently sloping shoulder (if such exists) was the beginning of wisdom. 😩 I swapped to a leather backpack, which is now my everyday PA. πŸ˜‚ Those handbags were sometimes, the only feminine look on me. πŸ˜† But, what can a girl do, when the sweats, joggers, bomber jacket, sneakers, boots and hoodies life is just too simple to add to the stress of Law school and a cold weather? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Ah, I’m a music lover! Afrobeats, Soul, Dance/Electronic, Nigerian gospel (you’ll dance and forget your worries, or watch someone else do it πŸ˜†), whatever genre gets me dancing. πŸ˜‚ I’m that person who’d sit quietly and watch other people tear up the dance floor.. until my kind of song comes on!! It’s always like someone just released adrenaline shots in human form! #MakeWayMannyComingThrough. πŸ˜‚ I have an inexplicable thing for DJs. πŸ˜• Mind you, the flow and transition gotta be πŸ’― and πŸ”₯!

On a final (for now) note, I love me a good laugh,Β and I laugh like a hyena. Everyday. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ There’s always something silly in every situation. There’s always something to laugh about. Take a chill pill and lay off that serious face. 😼 Subscribe to the blog, already! πŸ‘‡πŸ’œ

There's an eternity worth of things to say, but to keep it short, I'm a very deep individual, an avid reader and student of humans and the things around us that we interact with. If you ask me, everything has the capacity to be the topic of a deep discussion, including toilet paper. In a discussion, I'd be that person that gets everyone (including the one who's making the most noise) to go "oooooooohh!!" My thoughts spark elements in people's brains. I love imparting knowledge and I kind of have an issue with conveniently unenlightened people, who like to voice their every opinion. I love the spiritual stuff!! God is too awesome for words. There's always something to blow my mind each time I plug in. God is so deep, it's ceaselessly fascinating for me. You should totally visit the spiritual part of my mind. It's indescribable. Insane adrenaline flowing in there!
