M'y HIVE Introduction post
Family is one of the most important aspects of a person’s life, I’m personally grateful for what I have in my life. We are not the perfect family, but we do our best at every point in time and I think this is the most important thing about a family irrespective of their disagreement, quarrels, fight and other differences; they still look out for each other’s welfare no matter what.

My name is Dandison Chiagozie, just an average Nigerian living in Rumuokwurusi Port Harcourt with my family. My parents are nothing short of the regular Nigerian parents, but I will say they are one of a kind. Starting with my mum who is a business oriented individual, she still finds a way to balance the scales with work and family, as a matter of fact, I wonder how she doesn’t joke with her art yet is also a lover of books. I have seen a lot of people who find it difficult to balance work life with family because of how the situation of things are currently in Nigeria, yet my mum does it and even has time for hobbies.

Overall I will say she is a great person.I know my dad to be very hardworking and smart; he normally takes on a lot of things at once and still manages to get the job done. He’s very nice and polite in character, but one funny thing about him is how he calms himself down with vintage music after the work of the day. At times his choice of music is annoying; he could just listen to something else instead, but other times they are cool, I got to even learn some because he would always play them so I guess I just subconsciously learned them. My dad is also a big football fan so watching football is another impossible to avoid in my house.My elder sister (21) is currently doing a bachelor’s degree program in public health at the federal university of science and technology Owerri
I don’t know why but we hardly talk, I think it’s just how much of an introvert she is. She’s so quiet that we only talk when necessity demands so it’s as though I don’t know her enough to even write about her, But I love her still because she is my sister after all. My younger siblings Miriam (16) Tochi (14) and our youngest brother Excel (10) are the ones I normally vibe with at home. They are really fun to be with, staying with them can be sometimes annoying (siblings can are naturally annoying and fun at the same time.) but taking it from another angle, there is never a dull moment with them around, It’s absolutely impossible to get bored with them around; If you are not shouting, you are laughing, if you are not laughing you are trying to get them do something when they decide to be lazy, so there is no time be bored. But the annoying part is they can be pests when you are trying so hard to have a quiet time.But what can I say, they are not family if they do not get on your nerves because at the end of the day you will still find yourself laughing with them without an apology for getting on your nerves.

Spending quality time with my family has made me realize that they are the only ones who will always have my back no matter what. I can’t count how many times I have had to argue with my parents over decisions they think are right, or things we don’t view from the same perspective but no matter how intense these arguments get, I can always trust them to have my back anytime.I have also watched my parents argue over the little and big things, many a times the argument gets intense as though the house is going to burst open, but at the end of the day they find a way to get it all together.
This is why I say we are not the perfect family, I don’t know if there is such a thing as the perfect family but we do our best to love each other in our own way at this point, I need not talk much about myself, If you have followed through from the beginning, you already know that I am just a random guy who loves family so much, that’s one of the reasons why I joined the Hive family after @blacktari told me about how wonderful the hive family is and that I can easily socialize and make real friends here, I decided to take the chance and see how things turn out here.
I really hope I can make new friends and share great experiences on this platform.Another reason I decided to join Hive is because I really want to develop myself as a writer and content creator, I don’t know my strengths in writing yet, but I know for sure how much I want to grow, I already went through a good number of contents here that already inspire me to want to be better at writing.Also I am not sure how this works, but I know there would be rules and regulations guiding what and what not is to be posted here (Just as it is for any family), @blacktari already shared the basics but just so I don’t get into trouble, I would be glad if someone can be kind enough to also put me through in comment section. I’m really looking forward to all the experiences one could get here on hive.
I sincerely hope I don’t get to quarrel with anyone here (just saying, because it’s easy to be misunderstood at .

Again am excited to be here and I look forward to the numerous experiences I would be having with this great family.
