How you doing?
It’s been a lil quiet in here despite my good intentions to be more regular at blogging.
Some donkey months ago DD ( D’Dream) tagged me in a Get to know me post. I promised to do it. Mentally started, but life happened. Well I’m here to do that.
Before I get on with that I remember my question in my last post; the guess on how much I got from my saving box…. Thanks to all who guessed, though no guess was close. I had saved up 50,500. Yes! I was surprised, did a happy dance and spent the money instanta. And yeah I’ve replaced the saving box already.
Now, on to the Get to know me tag.
NAME: Tamie (it’s a variant of my full vernacular name)
NICKNAMES: Currently, None!
Well, I had at different times given myself some, they include sparkle (most often used, contained in two of my emails), glow (derived from my English name), twinkle (least used, used on some old social media profiles). What’s with the “shine” names? Don’t ask me.
PLACE OF BIRTH: Pitakwa aka Poracot aka Garden city aka Port Harcourt City, Rivers state, Nigeria
BEST FRIEND: Never had one.
AWARD: Can’t remember if I’ve had one. I think I have but for some reason can’t remember.
REAL HOLIDAY: Are there fake holidays?
Well, the first holiday I thoroughly enjoyed as a child was the time I traveled to my mum’s village and was allowed to join my cousins and go to the mangrove and pick periwinkle and also swim in the river. I had longed to have that experience and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It turned out to be the first and only time.
CONCERTS: Do school musical concerts count?
