Dum, Dum, Dadda, Dadda, Dum, Dadda

The title is the words to a song with hand motions that go increasingly faster as you reach each verse. I'm sure you guys wanted to know that.

Anyway, YIPPPIE!!!!!!!!!!!! Finals are over and we're almost free!!!! This is the most I've wanted to go home in the longest time. The world right now is not going well. A good friend of mine is denied re-enrollment. And that absolutely stinks. Let's just say a cry session and a destroying session is over. argg.

Anyway, some people asked a while ago why I am called Fae and why I'm the embodiment of an oxymoron and why I'm called Samwise. So, here is my answer.

My name: Well, I have this weakness for fairies. All right, they are my favorite fantasy creature. Well, the Irish name for fairies is spelt faere. I also love any winged things, everything from angels to lady bugs to birds (my favorite animal is the peregrin falcon because it lives high up on craggy peaks and can dive at speeds up to 200 mph. yeah buddy). But I myself do not have wings. So my name is Fae, the Irish spelling, without the r and e which symbolize my wings, which I have not earned yet. Did you get that? I hope you do.

I am the embodiment of an oxymoron. I grew up with three brothers, so I fell in love with Legos, tree-climbing, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. But I absolutely love twirly dresses or skirts. And I love dressup and make-up and doing nails, hair, and everything else girly. So while I was playing Barbies, I was also taking them to the "movies" to see Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoons. I would climb trees in twirly skirts and I would play house with Legos.

Also, I got the nickname Samwise because I love the Lord of the Rings (my roommates think I am obsessed with it) and because my roommate from last year also knew Lord of the Rings (she's April's, Kat's, sister). And then April's roommate (go Johanna) started calling me that and it kind of stuck with me (it also works with my last name which starts with a "g"). Though, you would have to ask Key or Kat if I really am like Samwise, a loyal to-the-very-end kind of friend (I think I am, but hey, that's just my preception of myself which could be completely different from reality).

I think that covers everything.

Have a great Christmas and an even better new year!

Fae (without wings)
