#31Days31Writers: Berry’s super proud of her locks, and I’m super jealous!

Berry’s been my friend from university… dunno if we used to talk everyday like that sha, but since we’ve been through, everyone’s grown up a bit more, and she’s one of the strongest supporters of my writing and this blog, and I’m so grateful for her! Berry’s gorgeous, and when she said she wouldn’t be able to write in at first, my heart sank.

Minutes later she said she would, and was actually one of the first to send in her entry! Super girl! Can I use this medium to thank you for every comment, ever like, every tweet? I notice, and I appreciate you from the depth of my heart! What I can’t really fathom is why we haven’t met up till now! We must remedy that biko, and soonest!

Enjoy Berry’s piece!  

My name is CHIDIEBERE NWEZE. This sounds funny because a lot of people didn’t know prior to this time. My friends in secondary school ‘nicknamed’ me “Berry” and it took over my real name. Even my parents call me “Berry” now. *I digress**. I’m Nigerian (obviously).

This year has been rather fast (if you asked me). ‘Yesterday’ was Christmas and we are in June already. Too too fast. Plus, it doesn’t help that it means I’m getting old fast(er) too. *Hiss*** Anyway, it’s been an amazing year, nevertheless. I travel a lot (not as much as the FGS does sha) and this is a year I get to make a lot of trips (both Local and International). Amazing!

I’m most grateful for LIFE, family, friends and ‘Le beau’. Talking about family, my siblings and I are very closely knit and I keep praying to God that the bond only gets stronger. Just very recently, my younger sister sent me an sms that read: “Berry, did you forget me?” just because I didn’t speak to her in two days. That to me was PRICELESS! My beau on the other hand, has been very wonderful. God delivered me from a very nasty relationship and put me in this one. So, those and more are stuff I’m most grateful for.

What am I looking forward to in the second half of the year? Em, A LOT! A better me, a better relationship with God, better opportunities and an amazing end to the year.

Thanks FGS for giving me this platform/opportunity. You’re welcome boo!

PS: I had my hair locked this year (June precisely). I’m so loving it. So, I’m #TeamNatural now, baby!

Berry’s super gorgeous too! What do I have to do to get this dress?

      Lol! Hi Nedu! Thanks jare. And no, I don’t write o. I’m not a writer at all. Chioma (I prefer to call her FGS sha) is a special special person, so I just had to oblige her and write this short (but very revealing note) about me for her blog.

      I really appreciate the comment. I hope you become a regular visitor here. The blog is super cool and the owner is an amazing person. I absolutely love her and the way she writes.

    Berry was my set in secondary school. Not until recently, i reconnected back with her did it occur to me how much time has passed since we graduated. There’s been no change in her ‘ smiley face’ apart from the weight gain. Though our present friendship still birthing ‘ per say’, i’d say it’s being fun. About her personality and locks, i like alright and the locks fit perfectly on her but am not jealous * winks*.

    Like seriously? Chidieberry! I fell in love with this babe the first day she asked I and Sam ‘‘whatever happened to your inbox”. She completely warned us to leave her facebook wall. Funny though, am yet to meet her in person. But she’s been a great friend, not only my friend but also my daughter’s boo. Nice piece dear, but its not detailed.

    The quality of your writing is good but there are many slangs. You should use slangs sparingly because you are not writng to a local audience but to the English speaking world. A reader in Chattam Island or Saskatoon should be able to comprehend your writing without being lost by trying to figure out the meaning of some slangs. You also have to expand your words chest. That is you have to boost your words power by knowing a new word everyday. This will enable you write with few words making your narrative to be short and precise. On the whole it was a good attempt But it could further be enhanced by constant practice.
