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 a Snr Creative Copywriter at 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.

      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?

    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.
