Everyday, I thank God for bringing her into my life. You don’t get to meet people like this all the time. I’m happy she’s my ROOMMATE AND FRIEND-TURNED-SISTER!
After having an awful Friday night/Saturday morning, I knew I had to “ball” a little, even though we had already made plans to meet up.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE INSTITUTION THAT IS CHIMAMANDA NGOZI ADICHIE

Chimamanda. I think it was the name I fell in love with at first, I had never heard that name. My secondary school was in the heart of Umuahia, with over 300 Igbo students and no one had the name – CHIMAMANDA. But we sure had an abundance of the regular Igbo names : CHIDINMA, CHIOMA, CHIAMAKA etc.
