My Introductory Post
I’m so glad to be finally doing this. Writing my introductory post has always been an issue since I joined the community sometime in December. I found myself procrastinating on the whole thing till I forgot about it. A huge mistake on my part but cheers! I finally did it and I plan to be active here as long as the platform still works. So, let’s get right into it.
About me :), I’m Ezekiel Akpan, from a beautiful place in Nigeria. I’m probably exaggerating but it’s still a cool place to visit if you’ve not been. Well, I have a few hobbies, love video games soo much, I jog at times and I kind of do some art pieces on rare occasions though.
I recently lost the drive I used to keep all my water colour paintings and drawings but those are the few ones I could find. Had a beautiful expressionist painting of myself, really miss that one. Well, these paintings are from when I was in high school and would really love to know the ones you think are great🙃. My best here is the painting with thatch houses and a few people walking around so early in the morning, trying to get some chores done. It reminds me of when I was younger.
I haven’t painted in a while and I miss it so much. I had to stop when I got into the university. Everything was so tedious and I didn’t have much time for that part of me. Hope I don’t forget how to paint, if that’s possible😆.
I take a run everyday and its fun knowing I'm doing something positive towards my health. STEPN helped me with that and although I lost some money there, it aided me to create a habit. Now can't wake up in the morning without the thought of hitting the road with my sneakers.
One of my favorite things in the world is gaming, first person shooter games to be precise. I feel so much peace when I’m behind the screen with that mouse whooping other gamers :). I play apex legends and I can’t lie it’s the toughest game I’ve ever seen. Everything happens so fast in the game. One second you're alive looting for a fight and the next second your health is at zero😆. It's just so competitive and that's why I like it tho. The zeal to get better than everyone in your lobby keeps it interesting for me. Well, you need to try it to understand😏.
Here are some pictures of me playing and my stats.
About religion, I'm a Christian and I attend the Apostolic Church. I'm also part of the Choir, yes! I am😁. Joining the Choir has always been a dream to me since I was little and I must say, it has been fun. I sing the tenor part since I have a light voice. Been trying to learn the guitar for a while and I can't lie, it ain't easy. I know I'll get there tho. Would have uploaded something of me in church but I hardly take pictures there, sorry about that.
Aside that, I study Civil Engineering at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. I love Maths, that's why I drifted to engineering. Also, I just believe since Nigeria is still a developing country, the Civil and Structural Engineers will always be wanted. It's actually a fun course to study and that’s where I met some of my friends. Well most of them aren’t on hive but there’s @theawesononso and @luckydrums. I knew awesononso since high school but those two really pushed and motivated me into Hive. Shout out to them😁.
Well, that's enough about me, I love it that I’m here to learn more just can’t wait to connect with the guys here and kick off my first game on splinterlands. Thanks for having me!
😂 I can totally relate to this. I also play Apex but it's on mobile, it's indeed a very challenging game and that's what makes it fun. I don't play it that much these days, I no play more of CODM. Looks like you're a pro player, judging by the gaming setup you have in one of those pictures 😁
Haha, I’m no pro mate😂😂 but thanks for that. I just happen to have a good system since I do some works on revit.
I played COD mobile once with a friend and it’s fun but back then I didn’t have a good phone so it was really laggy.
Good to hear you’re a gamer too bro and thanks for reading! If you ever drop by to play on PC, hmu😁

Welcome to hive @zekea. I am pretty sure @theawesononso will tell you more about hive but this is @macchiata from the @OCD team bringing you some helpful tips navigating hive.
If you have time, You can read some of the communities in this post that you may like : OCD Communities Incubation Program and for all hive communities you can check https://peakd.com/communities
For tips and information as a Hive newbie, click here: newbie guide.
The important thing is Hive is a bit different from other social media platforms since you are monetizing your blog. You can't include content that you don't own without sources. For more information, check this post: Why and How People Abuse and Plagiarise. If you have questions or concerns, you can hop into OCD's Discord server and we'll gladly answer your questions.
Thank you so much @macchiata, I've always been warned about plagiarism in school and I'll do well to abide by those rules. Still searching for my niche. I'll probably start from @leofinance since I have a wide knowledge of cryptocurrencies. Hopefully, things go well for me and thanks again!
Welcome here! 🙂 May you have the best journey here. Good luck 🙂
I hope I do and thank you!
