I'll let you in a little revelation about my favorite usernames in my virtual sites. First is about my Mikimoto Angel pen name. Mikimoto is a famous brand of pearl accessories in America. I first saw that brand in Vogue Magazine. I got mesmerized by that label, and I thought of using it. I just added Angel from my name "Angela". Thus, the formation of Mikimoto Angel.For my other pen name Mystic Nymph, the word mystic really came from the show Mystic Knights of Tir Na Nog. I used to be so hooked to that show. I am also obsessed with mythologies, and nymphs are mythical creatures depicted as beautiful young women who are considered as guardians of objects and places in nature. Thus, the evolution of Mystic Nymph.

In the midst of my speech
We had our first speech in COMA104. Introduction of a guest speaker, that is. I chose Ms Evelina Ayson as my "as if" keynote speaker for my "as if" seminar on Social Psychology. I was trembling on the stage but of course I tried so hard not to make it so obvious. I was tensed because in my two years in college, that was the first time I spoke again in front of a crowd. Well, they're not totally just a crowd, they're my classmates. Despite the shaking hands, I did my best though.
Someone got so rude when it was my turn to speak. I don't really know if she did it on purpose but I think she acted so bad. Our professor warned us beforehand not to go out the room when the speech is going on. But she went out. I really think she hates me. I'm not an idiot to not even notice it. I got hurt, I must admit. Really hurt, that I can't stop thinking about it. It's hard to attend a class when you know one or some of your classmates dislike you. I don't want to sound over reacting but that played on my head, even until this moment.
