Timeline of Activity:

2015: First Event - Steppes 12th Night
2016: Took up first office, graduted from Elfsea Academy as Valedictorian, served as an autocrat (Elfsea Baronial College 2016) and received my award of arms.

A funny story about receiving my award of arms:  When I received my AOA, I was actually already holding my circlet in my hands! I was serving on Baronial entourage for William and Cassandra with Liese who was the head of entourage. We had snuck back behind the thrones to grab the award insignia, because they were getting ready to make the announcements. They were giving out two Sable Cranes and two AOAs. Liese grabbed the Sable Cranes and I grabbed the circlets to hold on to. They called the first person up to get his AOA, so I handed that off. And then they called my name into court, and I kept trying to shove the circlet into Astrid's hands! She was like, "What? What?" And I said, "they're calling my name, here!" One person had already been given an Award of Arms, and I picked the more masculine looking one for him, leaving the other, so I kinda picked my circlet!
