Hey there! Thanks for checking out my blog. My name is MJ Mwenebungu. I’m a twenty something year old student by day and a reading/writing night owl. I was tongue tied as to what to write on this page so l opted to answer the  a “Get To Know Me” questions  that Lindsey Lovin Life kindly shared on her blog.

Unfortunately, l couldn’t answer all 100 questions so l have picked out some random ones. I hope these give you more of an insight about me as a person.


Are you a morning or night person? 

DEFINITELY night person! My brain tends to work better and absorb more information when everyone’s asleep so l read and write in peace with minimal distractions.

Are you an extrovert or introvert?

Funnily enough, l am a fair bit of both, however, l do mask my introverted self pretty well. I like to refer to myself as an extroverted introvert.

Are you more of a tidy person or a messy one?

Definitely messy. Oooops.

Are you on time or always late?

It depends where l am going to be honest. I am usually 90% of the time always on time though.
