My First Post On HIVE: Introduction of Me to The World of Hive

in GEMS22 days ago (edited)

Great people of Hive, I’m very happy to be here with you today and guess what? I’m here to stay.

I was invited by my lovely husband, @greatness96 to join you. I’m sure you will like to hear about me. So, sit back and read on as I say who I am.

Me in Details

My name is Unyime (it means God’s acceptance). I was born as a second born and second girl in my family in 1994. I’m sure you can calculate my age now. In my family we are four, me, my dad, senior sister and junior brother. Mum is late. She died in 2015.

I grew up in Akwa Ibom state, southern part of Nigeria, where I come from and my childhood was exciting because I have always been treated as a princess, now my hubby made me his queen. Lucky me.

My Religion
I am a Christian from childhood. Back then with my parents, I was raised to like church, just that my dad’s church used to close very late on Sundays. So, when it’s Sunday I used to get uncomfortable because while going you see other churches already in service and before we are back, they have closed theirs.

But ours, we run service till 3 p.m. and that time the hunger in my stomach was always biting.

So, I told myself that when I leave house, maybe because of school, I would change church. That’s what I did. I found a church that close service by 11 a.m. around campus and gladly joined them.

When I came back home, I pleaded with dad to allow me continue with my new church and as a big girl then, he obliged.

My Academic Life

I attended a nursery school in Uyo town where we lived, proceeded to girls boarding school in the same town. I was a very stubborn student but yet I was not failing.

My mates and even seniors used to be amazed that I don’t take school seriously but yet I was on top of the class when it comes to exams result. So, they tagged me: STUBBORN AND INTELLIGENT.

I purposely refused to be appointed a prefect when I reached class 5 because I knew I would not last long in power because of my stubborn nature. It’s better not to be a prefect at all than to be a demoted one.

After high school, I enrolled to study Law in the University of Uyo, Nigeria. It has always been my dream and the pride of my parents that I become a lawyer. First, I am a very outspeaking person by nature, an exact opposite of my senior sister who is very quiet.

In fact, when anyone needed anything in the house, they used to ask me to approach dad on their behave. Dad listens to me because of my boldness and humour.

In the university I was not really the best. Other intellectuals really competed but I was not bad anyway.

I graduated in 2016 and went for law school in 2018. Law in university lasts 5 years and law school last 2 years.

After law school, I went for youth service, a compulsory one-year service to the country for every young Nigerian graduate. The only exception is if one is above 30 years, then you will be exempted.

How I met my husband
It was August 15, 2019. I was still serving in Ekiti state, a state in south western part of Nigeria. By this time, I was already called to BAR and I was working as a solicitor in the state ministry of justice.

We met on Facebook! Yes, you read well. That fateful 15th August, I was just online, checking people timeline when I saw his friend request. Normally I don’t accept request like that from strangers. I have over a thousand pending as we speak.

But when I scrolled through his profile, he was just a different man, from what he posts. I was thrilled and I immediately accepted.

Within seconds, he chatted me up and unlike me I answered the chat. When we started talking, I saw myself falling for him easily, to the point of giving him my number without him asking.

This is me that have refused to give out my number to anyone online. When I remember that day, I still imagine what came over me. Could it be love. People talk about love at first sight, but here I never saw him before.

He started calling and trust me, right on phone I felt what I never felt for even the man I dated for five years in school. I needed no lecture to know this is real.

Three days after I accepted his friend request on Facebook, he told me on phone that I’m going to be his wife. He never saw me before, did not know if I’m a monster, a devil or something.

Guess what, I accepted his proposal before meeting him. When we met, he gave me engagement ring?

That was it. Exactly 6 months later, on February 15, 2020 we got married. He’s an amazing man. I keep regretting that I never met him before now. He graduated from the same university, though earlier, but our path never crossed then.

Life as a wife and mother

Being a wife has been an amazing experience because hubby is very caring, gentle and understanding.

When I became pregnant, he started treating me like a baby. He would cook, sweep, wash, mob, you can name it.

I gave birth to my first child, a baby boy on September 15th,2020. We named him Andikan (meaning: a conqueror or one that is victorious in everything).

As we speak, I’m a nursing mother of this little angel God sent to us. So, you can see that 15th is very unique to us. We met on 15th, got married on 15th and I delivered on 15th.

My Career

As a barrister, I worked with a small chamber in Port Harcourt where we live until delivery time came. My job is majorly in helping clients file their case in court, help in writing agreements for properties and also handle cases in court.

Since I will be out of work in the next 3 months, I will be very active on Hive, I hope I’m welcomed.

My hobbies
I like swimming and outings. For me, life is never a dull moment with these leisures.

Permit me to draw the curtain here on my introduction. Please, in case there’s something I forgot to mention that you will like to know about me, feel free to ask on the comment.

I’ll be expecting your comments

Much love from me and my baby to you all.

Thanks for sharing and welcome to Hive.

Thank you very much.
I really appreciate your support.
What motivated you to use this username? It looks so special.

I think earth is a very small place and not well understood today. It is obvious that ancient civilizations had better understanding than you are allowed to have today.

Cheers

Great. That's true.

Hello @unyime1 Welcome to Hive. So nice to meet you. So glad you chose Hive for your writing experience. It may seem daunting at first with so many activities and so much to learn. Take your time. Nothing will happen overnight.

The key I feel to being successful on any social platform, especially on Hive is to write original, quality content and engage and connect with other authors with quality comments on their articles. They in turn may engage with you.

Did you know that when you publish your posts on hive.blog, you are allowed 8 tags; but when you publish your posts on Peakd, you are allowed 10 tags. The more tags, the more exposure for your posts. For example, if you write about food, an appropriate tag may be: #foodiesbeehive #food #diy #build-it.

Find several Communities that fit with your writing. No matter what type of writing, there is a Community on Hive to accommodate it. Just browse the COMMUNITIES TAB above.

What beautiful wedding photos. You two look so happy. Good luck on your marriage for the future. I see that becoming a lawyer was the most practical job you could have chosen given your personality. Hope you have a wonderful career and are able to help as many people as you can and become successful.

Hope to engage with you again soon. Take care and stay safe.

Thank you very much. Your words are so encouraging and full of blessings.

I hope for better days.
Cheers!
