Marina!!!! :D
So glad to see you here! And that you managed to come over to this side of the pond and get yourself married! :) So happy for you! :)

Original RB Name(s): Highlyeccentric
When you joined: Uh... somewhere around 2002, 2003, I think
When you were most active on RB: 2004-2006, maybe?
What people might remember you from: Hmm... I won overseas section of the parody contest, with a piece casting Elrond as Eyore, and still have the lovely miniature Gimli helm to show for it.
What you've been doing lately: Acquired a BA in medieval studies (honours in Anglo-Saxon, coursework in Middle English - I saw a fair bit of Tolkien in an academic context!); worked for a year; now doing an MPhil in medieval studies, on Arthurian lit.

Damn, I've just remembered how much I *missed* you guys...

I just graduated college with a degree in biology (Oh wow...it's been exactly one month! Seems like so much longer ago...but also just yesterday!)
So I'm at home working for the summer and travelling a little visiting friends...then in the fall i'm going back up to campus to do an internship and heading to Kenya in january for 6 months to do medical missions stuff. :) and then medical school (provided I get accepted!)

Oh my, you're all grown up and graduated! Last I remember you were still in high school. Granted, I would've been in all of first-year uni at the time, but still. Wow, I missed a lot.

Kenya sounds awesome :D. As does med school - not that I envy you on that front, not at all. Good luck!

Wah, it's highly! Hey welcome back!! :)
Medieval studies = teh awesome. Waes hael to you and all that.
I dropped out of Anglo Saxon class after half a semester :o
"The world of books is the most remarkable creation of man. Nothing else that he builds ever lasts. Monuments fall, nations perish, civilizations grow old and die out, and after an era of darkness new races build others. But in the world of books are volumes that have seen this happen again and again and yet live on, still young, still as fresh as the day they were written, still telling men's hearts of the hearts of men centuries dead."

Waes Hael to you too! Although, dropping Old English! Tsk tsk.

I have actually switched allegiance now - my current language of study is Old French :D
