So Many Things Unclear, So Many Things Unknown

This semester, as you have read about, has been a complete whirlwind. When I came back from Orlando to begin my senior year I honestly did not imagine half of the things that happened would happen.

Damsels in distress, far away places, daring sword fights, princes in disguise, all of that and more.

So I have been asking the question for years when will my fairy...
