"Hands up if you love bananas." || New Scriber's in town.

(Edited)

All my Dreemer friends have been making me feel like I have been committing some crime by not joining the challenges Dreemport has been dishing out. It all started with the Dreemport challenges a while back, followed by the Ecency + Dreemport crusade. Now I am seeing ice-cream and chocolate bars everywhere, and I am like, "Oh no, they are at it again." They are having fun again!

Source


I am probably the last person to make this intro post, but my friends, @merit.ahama & @hopestylist, just did not give up on me. @iskawrites joined in, and I got excited to join in too. @dreemsteem gave me encouraging words. The whole Ecency crusade sparked a flame that has been burning hot for a while now. I started to use Ecency (I am so sorry, PeakD 😂) and I just could not get enough of it. I have been feeling more encouraged to engage more on Hive and it has been so amazing.

Now, I am joining the Dreemers in the challenges to ensure I do not miss out on all the goodies (fun) in the future. Oh, might I add that I have been using Dreemport, and I have been amazed at what I have been missing. Anyway, without further ado, let's do this!

ℬ𝒶𝓃𝒶𝓃𝒶𝓈, 𝓇𝑒𝒶𝓁𝓁𝓎?

I grew up in a place where the word "dessert" does not exist. Just kidding... What I mean to say is that we never really "appetizer-main course-dessert". When you are hungry, chunk down what you can and move on with life. So I will be talking about bananas instead. Yes, banana, the fruit, not the flavor.

I am a lover of fruits, but bananas have a very special and soft place in my heart. It is a valiant soldier that I can call upon whenever I go into battle with hunger. It has a very strong, yet sweet personality that is so alluring. Have you seen a banana smile before? You cannot deny it, as it is always smiling.

The taste of banana to me is like a rainbow to my eyes. Some of my friends know better than to not include a bunch of bananas with their care package. You will win my heart. I normally settle for a big bunch of bananas and chunk them all at once. That alone was much better than most foods, except meat (I do not joke with meat).

Sometime last year, I ate a bunch of bananas every night before bed, and it was a wonderful experience. Try eating bananas before bed every night and come tell me you do not sleep better. Let me end my banana love story here and move on to the other important topics of the post.

  • ʜᴏᴡ ʟᴏɴɢ ʜᴀᴠᴇ ɪ ʙᴇᴇɴ ᴀʀᴏᴜɴᴅ?

I have been on Hive for roughly six months. I know I am very much a little man in this space, but I assure you I am all in for it. I have come to love Hive so much that I can not believe that such an environment exists. It feels surreal to be here. It is an environment where growth is inevitable if you stick with it. I have gotten so much better at so many things; learned many new concepts and about new topics; and I have even gotten better with my finances, thanks to those Leofinance posts.

  • ᴡʀɪᴛᴛᴇɴ ғɪᴄᴛɪᴏɴ ʙᴇғᴏʀᴇ?

I have never ever written a story before (just one small one, actually), let alone fiction. I really do not know how to go about writing stories in the future, but I am willing to try. I know you will support and encourage me to get better at it whenever I do come up with something.

  • ғᴀᴍɪʟɪᴀʀ ᴡɪᴛʜ sᴄʜᴏʟᴀʀ & sᴄʀɪʙᴇ?

I had never heard of this community, as well as so many others on Hive, but I am glad to have found it. I am eager to read the many entries to come in this community.

  • ʜᴏᴡ ᴅᴏ ᴇxᴘᴇᴄᴛ ᴛʜᴇ ᴄʜᴀʟʟᴇɴɢᴇ ᴛᴏ ʙᴇ?

I am so expecting this challenge to be really challenging indeed. It is not a type of writing I am accustomed to. But what is life without exploration? I am eager to join in, and I know I will have nothing but fun.

  • ᴡʜɪᴄʜ ᴏғ ᴛʜᴇ ᴄʜᴀʟʟᴇɴɢᴇs ᴀʀᴇ ʏᴏᴜ ɢᴏɪɴɢ ғᴏʀ?

Honestly, I have zero idea of what I am going to go for. I am only going to try to be like the river. I'ma just flow with the current in the community. I know that I will blend very well.


Well, that's a wrap on my intro post for this community. I sure am glad I have it done now, so I can jump right into the fun. I really hope you did not judge me on my banana escapade.

See as I was just enjoying the read and I was hoping it won't get to the end. Oma, you sha can write oo, come and teach me oo. Banana is amazing fruit but I haven't eaten up to a bunch once, I think I will try it when you send me one bunch 😪.

I'm so glad you got determined to finally be a dreemer that challenges himself, it will be so much fun with you around I'm very certain.

Yes you've never written fiction once but I do know you are very good at making reviews of movies and that shows that deep down you are an amazing fiction writer, better don't say anything about what I just said now.

It will be really fun to see you engaging or coming up with an amazing series fiction story or even both, don't worry, I am here to cheer you up.

Eiii...my friend o. How do I make atonement for this thing that I have done?? MY first commenter is the one that I chosen to respond to last. Maybe I was saving the best for last (acutally not). I am deeply sorry.

It actually feels so encouraging to hear you say that I can write well. I started Hive with zero writing skills, but now, with people like you that I have, I am getting better by the day.

I am so glad to be a Dreemer now, and to see how excited you guys are to have me. I will love to do these challenges with you all.

My first fiction will definitely not be my best, it should not, but I do intend to put in my all, as always, and enjoy the challenge to the max.

Thank you again, mama.

It's fine, I do that too but it's actually because i like doing it that way nothing more, so you don't have to be sorry. You should only be sorry when you ignore my comments 😜.

That's how it is my dear, no one was so sure if his or her writing skills not until they started and you are one amazing writer among many that I've seen so I know you will do above what you even think you can, you know I'm always rooting for you 😊.

I'm so happy you are now part of this big family too, I can't wait to see you everywhere as a dreemer, trust me it's really fun.

Of course your first might not be your best but it will be more than okay, I know it. Just let it flow dear and squeeze those sweet juice out and show us what you gat Joe, I'm anticipating that read, hehehe. However it turns out to be, I will be there to cheer you on ❤️.

You're welcome Joe 💙.

I know being a Dreemer is really fun. That is why I joined the train in the first place.

I still haven't posted my entry yet. I was finding it quite challenging. I know it is way past the deadline, but I will still post it. Better late than never. On Monday, I'll put it on Dreemport.

I am just responding to a truck load of comments this evening. God help me😂

Hello @olujay 👋 and welcome to Scholar and Scribe !

Not sure if it'll make you feel better, but you are literally not the last person to make an intro post. 😂 And yes, I can't live without bananas either, I think I eat two a day every day without fail. 😅

Don't worry that you haven't written fiction before, we welcome newbies and veterans alike! Who knows? Maybe you'll discover a love for writing that you didn't know existed. 😁 As long as you're having fun you can't go wrong, eh?

🍻

PS: I see you didn't use our tag #scholarandscribe. If you don't use it you won't be eligible to receive our groundbreaking tokens! If you wanna read up on how the tokenomics work then I direct you to this post. 🙂

Hello, @grocko. Firstly, let me apologise for the very late reply.

I was actually surprised to see that I am not even the last person to make an intro post.😁
But I guess the more, the merrier! Right??

I feel so encouraged with these kind words of yours. I do hope I discover that love for writing stories, as I am regular movie reviewer here on Hive. So, it would be nice to spin the wheel once a while.

I could now find the entire instructions to follow the post format (or I did not search well enough), so I missed the tag, #scholarandscribe. But I have now adjusted it. I sure do not want to miss out on the groundbreaking tokens.

I am surprised you found my story quite funny. I was only just trying to share the story of a young man (my humble self) and his love for bananas.

I literally exclaimed when I saw the notification that you follow me. I was like. "What!" 😂😂 Did this inspiring woman just take a look at me?? You have now inspired me even more to do better so as to not let you down.

now we have to see what he will bring us in the form of fiction....

I am now looking into pouring my heart more into my work. Hopefully, they turn out well, the fiction I will tell in the future. I may as well imbibe some banana concept to my stories.

Banana is my favourite and yes! I've tried taking it before bed, it is what you say 😍 can't just get enough of it really.

The part where you said you have zero idea what you are going for really cracked me up. But you already said you are willing to write fiction so it simply means you are among the writers. I'd love to see what your creative mind comes up with.

Ps: I'm not here because I love bananas. Yes I eat banana but it isn't my favourite fruits. It's just one of those fruits I eat when someone else buys them but I know it gives a lot of health benefits especially when taken as the last meal at night

So much talking to you and I hadn't read your posts. You are simply great, me and the people in my house love bananas, we call that type here "CAMBURES" the rest that are bigger than in other countries they call them bananas, here they are simply bananas.

My husband used to say that we were almost cute because we ate a lot of "CAMBURES", my nephews love it but my son doesn't so much anymore because I did the same thing to him that my mom did to me with the pumpkin. We were very tight financially for a time that I only put bananas for my son for his snack at school, until he didn't want any more. Now I have to insist that he eat one, he rarely eats it without telling him 😢.

I'm glad you like them, it's a very complete food. Recently I discovered very tasty cheese crushed and mixed with a spoonful of oatmeal flakes that makes it more nutritious and is very tasty to everyone I can I tell that good news hahaha. Maybe you don't like it that way. But it shows that you are a simple and easy to please boy @olujay 😁😎.

Now I have just learned about cambures.

The irony of life. We tend to not value things we are used to. Your son does not like cambures as he should because his mother stocked him up with so much of them.😂😂 Now you have to insist before he actually takes one.

Haha...I love oatflakes. At least, we have that one here. There are times where I just take oats so much. I know they are very rich in fibre. I make dishes with oat flakes and bananas too. Makes a really healthy meal, especially for when I workout.

I am really glad you have taken out of your time to check my content. I had a big smile when I saw many notifications from you.
