Can't afford to anymore, with school right around the corner. But I really should go home soon, haven't been back in over 6 years now. But I'm also not very highly motivated to go back as my fam and most of my extended fam are not there. MOre like going to see my friends and re-live the Naija experience.

I just stole this from a girl's posting on facebookYou know you are Nigerian:If your name is so long, or so hard to pronounce, that you either have some "Americanized" nickname, or you use your middle name (which is English).If, you know what your name means.If you know of anyone (including yourself) that has any of the following names: Ola, Sade, Bola, Tunji, Ngozi, Uche, Folake, Ifeoma, Tolu, Tunde, Obi, Chioma, Chituru, Chinyere, Adaobi, Nkemi, Nneka, Bunmi or Fatima.If, names like Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Patience, Peace, Blessing, God's Will or Mercy sound pretty normal to you.If, rice and stew just isn't the same without plantain (dodo)If, you would prefer Moin Moin, or Farina (fufu) with soup over McDonalds any day.If, you have ever treated a cold or sorethroat with "Pe-pe Soup".. AND IT WORKED!!!!!!If you know what AKATA means.If, your parents or relatives have ever disliked someone because of the simple fact that they were AKATA.(for females) If, not being able to cook stew or soup is one of the most major burdens in life.
We have family friends whose daughters are named Chioma and Chinyere. I knew that their father is from Africa, so I think its safe to assume that he's Nigerian, judging from this post.
