|Hello, my name's Ayrissa. I'm thirteen.
I found this website while looking for mermaid spells (I know, typical, right?) and once I got over the disappointment of being told I couldn't actually become one I started to check this place out.
It's pretty cool, actually-- I love being able to talk to people who actually know what they're doing and it's nice to have someone to ask if I come across a problem in my studies or something else like that.
A couple weeks after first seeing this site, I visited a used bookstore with my mom and headed straight for the Harry Potter section, like always. Only instead of the HP book I was hoping for, there was a big purple book lying there that clearly didn't hold the last of HP's adventures. I was confused-- did someone put it in the wrong section?
It was Silver RavenWolf's book for New Generation Witches-- To Ride A Silver Broomstick. I was ecstatic-- only the day before was it mentioned on the forums. Not only was it at a affordable price (it was $3.00), but my mom was happy to get it for me.
Can someone say DESTINY?
The second odd thing that happened to me at a thrift shop was when I was trying to figure out my magick name, and, like Silver RavenWolf suggested, I was spending a long time considering it.
So I was wandering around minding my own business (actually, I was looking for Tarot cards. My mom said if we find them anywhere, it's at that shop.) when I look over and OH MY GOD.
It's wind chimes!!
"What's so special about some silly wind chimes?", You ask? Well, this particular pair were wooden and HAD A DOLPHIN ON TOP OF IT.
(In case you didn't know, my spirt animal took the form of a dolphin back then. Now it's a cheetah.)(Wonder why that is. Insight, anyone?)
So, of course, I did what any normal excited thirteen-year-old would do and ran right over and rang it.
My first reaction?
"It sounds just like RAIN!!"
...And that is how I got the first part of my last name.
(If you were wondering about the tarot cards, no, we didn't find any. I had to order them online instead.)
I'm interested in magick that deals with gems (that's my phase right now), herbs, the astral, and the basics like energy manipulation and meditation.
