Know Me Better

me to useOo drat! I had the perfect opener and now I cant remember it. Okay, let’s see.

The fun Me.

The name’s Anyan, Benjamin Anyan (like James Bond says his name).  On every 15th of June l get a year older.

I love small poles (the kinda football you play in Ghana when you are just like six players , a small playing area and no goal posts), and I love scrabble, chess and monopoly. I like to think I’m quite a force to reckon with. I love witty banters and fun unpredictable movies. I could say I like swimming, but who likes something he hasn’t done in a while, huh?

I love understanding people and what their bodies say. I’m an adrenaline junkie…in many cases. I’m up for FIFA or  rock, paper, scissors any day.  I’m a prank master, because I’m good with accents, I could be just about anything to anyone…its easier on phone.

The Scholar me.

Presec had me for a while, then tossed me to Legon where Economics abused me. Writing came to me very early -in poems. I made a small living off it in Presec, had my own clientele and all. Wrote my 1st poem in JSS2 when my school was going to publish a magazine; my school teacher turned mine down because he didn’t believe it could be written by a 13yr old and didn’t want copied work. I guess the joke’s on him now, wont you say? 😉

The Professional me.

During the day, I’m quite serious you know. I’m the Creative Director of a formidable Advertising Agency. It’s hobby-meets-passion-meets-cash!

The Me me.

I love God. I cant say that enough. I am more aware of my imperfections than of much else. I’m on this journey to look better on the inside than I do on the outside. I have an uncontrollable obsession to make a difference…it seems to me to be the point of living.

The Writer me.

Be the judge 🙂

There are a couple of other MEs, that’ll just crack you up!!! But you can’t know everything about someone in just one conversation can you? So let’s build a relationship first okay? …flow with the tide, it’ll be fun- I promise.

    Ben, as someone who has been reading this blog for about a year now, I am begging you today. Please, start posting stories more often wae. I know you have a life, and you’re not a full time blogger, but pleeeeeaase. I beg you, I implore you, entreat you, beseech you, (and my br)fo is finished) to start posting more often. Don’t worry, our God likes challenge roff. He’ll give you more and more to write, you’ll be surprised.
    Sincerely,
    Your reader (and part time stalker. hehe)
    PS. You should really consider joining Instagram. Give my stalking abilities a more practice.

    I always look forward to reading your blogs. It always refreshing to read them and also I’m encouraged. Sometimes its a remainder when I seem to be tripping. Thanks for the good work. Who says being a Christian is not cool. You’re living proof.

    Keep doing you Ben.

    I love your writings…they are outstanding. I also like the fact that you don’t “point fingers” and act “holier than thou”. Your writings speak to me directly, gives me encouragement and hope. And most of all I’m glad you are a Christian and you don’t play the devil’s advocate.
    I pray that the Lord strengthens you, and may your talent bring you before kings.

    Well, I feel sorry for that JSS teacher who thought your work was copied… anyway, it’s sad how we fail to see real talent anytime we come across it. Your write ups always blow my mind and i go like, “Warris this? Did the dude write all that? All by himself?” lol! I believe only God can do this. Don’t stop writing. You’re inspiring many. God’s got you. 🙂

    I knew you long ago in Presec, but never knew you wrote this well. I love that Christian gentleman bit has stayed with you. It is a great man that doesn’t leave his God in his childhood.

    I checked out your site last week through a friend’s post on facebook and I had to sign up ASAP. The way you put across your thoughts is amazing… When I come ‘here’, I don’t feel like leaving… and oh it doesn’t matter if I’ve read your story already. It’s always refreshing reading it again (not boring). This is a good way to send the Gospel across. This description of yourself looks quite a lot like something I would have written 🙂 🙂 . Keep the good work up man.

      Hi Anna, it’s funny the sources i get writing ideas from. it’s often from actual experiences of friends or (rarely) myself. If I got to know you a bit, i just might have an idea for another story, wont you say?
