Verastic

My name is Vera Ezimora. I am a Russian-born Nigerian living in the States. I have spent most of my life outside Nigeria, but I am a hardcore Nigerian. This is evidenced by my ability to eat my eggs and drink my milk after their expiration date. Yup. I’m a total bad ass chic!

I’m very light-hearted *pats self on back* and I am happier for it. I play too much. I laugh too much (even in my dreams, and several times, my laughter has woken jolted me up from sleep. Not to worry, my farts have the same effect). I believe in frosted flakes. I believe in ice cream. I believe in the Most High God and his only son, Jesus Christ, creator of the heavens and the earth, author and finisher of my fate. My protector. My deliverer. My provider. My healer. My timekeeper. My savior.

Lastly, if I could, I would celebrate my birthday everyday. Of course, I’d expect gifts everyday, too. You must be wondering, so I’ll put you out of your misery, my birthday is January 14th.

Conversations With My Vietnamese Friend – Part 1

One thing I have always loved is learning about other people and their culture. I love talking with people who are not like me and finding things out that I probably would have never known.
