Let’s talk: The social media and us

I am almost everytime on instagram.  When I tell people about my Instagram hobby, they always envision a girl who tells the story of her daily life through pictures, videos and live stories.  Visiting my page and they are always disappointed with my less than ten pictures.   To be honest, I am always there…

I was body shamed this week

I was guilty of body shaming people.  Yes, I was guilty but I stopped eon years ago.  So being body  shamed this week was not something I enjoyed even though I didn’t think about it.  I wouldn’t say that I was entirely hurt, but I was hurt still.  Let’s just say that I was embarrassed…

You want some fresh food too?

My sister, Gift Wogu wrote about this on her blog, so I decided to write about it too.  Yea, I am a copy copy.  This one is for both sexes because it can go eitherways, but I will be talking from a woman’s angle.  Why?  As much as we don’t like it, gender role has…

Because of your denomination… Because of your religion…

Photo credit: Cee It was many minutes after 8 pm few days ago.  I was on my family’s group chat reading all I had missed the past hours, when a message from one of my girl friends popped up on my notifications panel.  I read the message before it dropped.  It read “My mum wants…

 Feminism? Feminizing the world?

If you think my Whatsapp habit sucks, then you’ll kill me for my Facebook’s.  So I decided to go on Facebook after about two years of inactivity, and the first thing on my notification panel was a post that I was recently tagged to.  It was a feminism based post.  Oh yea?  I read it…

What’s your age again?

What is really the problem with telling your age?  Is there some folklore that promises to kill anyone who says their real age?  When did age become so important to become a problem ?  Scared of death?  If heaven has signed that you’ll die at the age of 50, my dear, it is that year….

Thoughts: Anklets

I have this thing against anklets and ladies who wear them.  They just always look too beautiful, wrapped delicately around the ankle while bringing out the gorg in the ladies who wear them.  How can you just look so beautiful and still be legal? Oh, you expected me to say otherwise? Haha, no way.  I…

That sneak peek

I promised a sneak peek into my life for you blog readers.  Yaaaaaas, I try to fulfil my promises, I really try.  It’s just good that you guys know little somethings about the person behind the Ebere Mercy’s blog.  Not too much, just a sneak peek*winks*.  Some of you already know me, but I can…

How was your Easter?

It’s a wrap on the Easter celebrations already.  Might not even be a wrap for some, but for me, it is.  I will just have to continue tomorrow, haha. My Easter was just fine.  No church for me today.  We usually don’t go to church on this kind of day.  It is usually a family…

Our Nigerian Christianity

We breathe, eat, sleep, wear religion.  All of us.  Consciously.  Unconsciously.  Or both. Always the eyes see more than the mind can comprehend, and we go through life, self-blinded to much that lies before us.  We want a simple world but we live in a magnificently complex one, and rather than open ourselves to it,…
