Hi! I’m Nneka (ah-NAY-ka). A disciple of Jesus, wife, working woman, native New Yorker, and xennial. I desire to help women manage their home and improve their finances.
By day, I’m a number crunching public health professional. However, I always wanted to start a blog in order to share what I’ve been learning about home, life, and money management while trying to have a career and an hour + commute. Each way. I’m not trying to “have it all” but I’m trying to have a life to the full.
Nneka? What kind of name is that?
It’s from the Igbo of Nigeria, but I’m an American.
Native New Yorker? But you seem so nice?
There are nice New Yorkers! But with all the craziness, I love this town. Yes, it dirty, funky in the summertime (especially if it’s trash day), expensive, but it’s home. I’ve lived in 4 out of 5 boroughs (not that Staten Island really counts).
Xennial? What’s that?
Xennials, also known and Generation Oregon Trail, are those born in the late 70’s/early 80’s who don’t fit into the stereotypes of Gen X or Millennials. Though I’m technically the latter, I didn’t get an email address until high school. (And yes, it’s Hotmail. Don’t hate.) I remember when the Soviet Union was the enemy and the capital of East Germany was Bonn. I made a mix tape. I have a smart phone, but still prefer to hand write my to-do lists.
Why, yes. I can usually figure out what movie is playing but listening a couple of sentences or hearing the music. Unfortunately, no one wants to play Scene-It with me anymore.
