Welcome to Eleni Vamvakari's page!
Birthday: 1 December 1983
Languages: English (native speaker) Katharevousa (intermediate)
Religious views: above all, I love Ellada, and those who made and who continue to make Her the best country in the world. People have said that nationalism is my religion, and they're right. I firmly believe in the spiritual realm, where we go when we die, and I follow parapsychology, though I view it scientifically, not religiously. I believe that the true nature of The Divine is beyond mortal comprehension, so it comes to us in ways that we can understand.
Political Views: Hellenic Nationalist
Biography: Χαίρετε. Hello. I was born and live in New Jersey, America. Eleni Vamvakari is not my legal name, though it is what I use. I have been totally blind since I was two-months-old, and I use a screen reader (NVDA) with speech. My podcasts will usually consist of essays, poems, stories, or general commentary on life.
I am a prescriptivist in grammar, and I am against things like netspeak, textspeak, and so on. I enjoy debating, but I always try to remain civil. That said, I am extremely honest and do not believe in the idea of political correctness. I like old technology, reading, writing, and collecting things, such as cigarette lighters, coins, paper money, and stamps, the last three being Greek. I don't do drugs, go to clubs, or drink alcohol, but I enjoy trying new coffees and teas from around the world, and high quality tobacco in cigarettes and in an arghile (waterpipe). I like outdoor activities such as gardening, fishing, walking, going to the beach, flee markets, and swimming, and indoor ones, such as reading, writing, crafts, cooking and baking (from scratch), shopping, and playing dominoes, cards, and board games. I'm not a girly girl, so I am not interested in fashion, hair/nails, makeup, or jewellery, other than my braille watch, my flag pin, and other patriotic items.
I am a Hellenic (Greek) nationalist, though I lack the blood. It's my ultimate dream in life to move To Greece, to become a citizen, and to serve my country in whatever way I can. For now, though, my goal is to learn all that I can about our history and culture, from ancient times through the present, so that I can help to promote and to preserve Hellenism. While I can understand some Dimotiki, I strictly communicate in Katharevousa in Greek, and I use the polytonic system. I am well-known for promoting The Revolution of 21 April 1967, so don't be surprised if you see posts relating to it.
These are a few extra interests not covered in my general summary. Some may appear to be redundant, but I included them to make it easier for people to find me. If you have any questions about me or my views, please feel free to ask me.
