  • How was your time as Citizen/Novice/Accepted?

I was never a Citizen, that came in long after I had already signed the Novice book May 27, 2002.. I've been around and saw a lot of changes so it was all really exciting watching it grow into what it is today.. However my time as a Novice was a long one, didn't get the nickname The Eternal Novice" for nothing.. I spent my time reading, taking the classes and getting to know the people here and finding my way and learning who I was and where my place was within the Tower.. Being a Novice as long as I was gave me a lot of time to really think about the person I am and how I fit.. As an Accepted (April 6th, 2010)I got more involved with the inner workings and thought about what I can do and what I can't do and tried my best to contribute any way I could.. I guested and after a time I found I could fit in well with a couple of groups so I took again a bit more time just to make sure where my home really was and Aspired June 28th, 2010 .. I did have an advantage though, with me being around so long I really had a very good idea already of some groups I meshed well with..

  • When were you raised to Aes Sedai of the Green Ajah?

March 4, 2011 raised live at 10th Anni

  • Why did you choose Green?

I just am Green.. I knew once I guested I felt at home and at ease.. I could talk to the men and women there and knew I'd find someone who'd been there done that and could guide me if I needed it.. I fight for my family and friends.. I'm a very passionate person who will do whatever it takes to get the job done.. I know I can call on any of them and knew they will be there even if they do think I'm crazy.. Fiercely loyal and loving, I will help those close to me in any way I can.. I might have a large Red stripe that shows but I am totally now and always Green.. Just think of me as another Christmas Sedai..

  • Do you like to party, love men and are you a sucker for fashion and make up?

I love men, especially strong men who know who they are and what they want from life.. A big strong back and big arms, expressive eyes, and a mischievous grin will get me in trouble every time though.. I never really was a party girl but I love to hang out eat an drink with friends and enjoy the time when it happens though.. After Anni though, I really loved all the parties and meeting everyone and just spending so much time laughing.. I know if given the chance I'd jump at those kind of parties anytime if the chance come my way. As for fashion I'm kinda stuck in the 80's I guess you could say but I adore boots and corsets and my jeans.. I'm more of a relaxed kinda woman who is just as happy in my jeans and a soft T-shirt an barefoot as well.. Makeup I can take it or leave it most of the time, a little gloss an powder maybe a touch of eyeliner an I'm good to go.. However if someone wants to dress me up and do the hair an make up I'm more than willing to let them play it's always kinda fun to see what they can do..

  • To whom are you bonded, if you're bonded?

I'm so lucky to be bonded to two funny, clever, sweet and loyal men Guiyall Rithmaire of DM (3-6-11) and Gedhan Audax of VC (11-17-11)

  • What things do you do for

Right now I'm still getting used to being a Sedai but I am a Green Monkey, I make sigs and learning how to alter avatars and I'm working on trying to put a new spin to the Bondivisaries for the Greens.

  • How did you get to read the Series?

Oskana, my real life best friend and more or less sister, loaned me the books, bought me the books and took me to go get the rest of the books.. She even took me to 2 book signings which I was so excited about..

  • Who is your Mentee & Lil if you have one?

Chalisea Ridgedawn & Kassidy Rose DaiShan = Mentee

Morrighan Daghdera = Lil

  • Who is your favorite character of the Series? Favorite Nation?

I think I'd have to say Nynaeve, she reminds me a lot of myself and she is a very strong woman who never quits or gives in.. Then there is Lan, he is strong, honorable and what I'd look for in a man.. As for the Nation I'm not sure really.. There are things I like about several locations but the ones I found interesting were Arafel, Two Rivers, Three-Fold Land, and Malkier..

  • Have you ever attended any Real Life Functions? Did you like them if you did, and why? (Why do you think people should come to any future functions?)

YES!! I've gone to a few local gatherings and met a few people and had a lot of fun.. However my 1st large scale event was 10th Anni and it was the best time ever.. The people were fantastic and there was always something to do and people to get to know.. There was almost too much to do and you leave feeling like I gotta do it again just to catch what I missed the first time..

  • What kind of music do you like?

I love all types of music and I'm willing to listen to anything someone suggests to me.. I may not like it but I want to at least see what it is.. I usually listen to 60's, 80's, barbershop, musicals, Accepella, rock, country, bluegrass like I said you name it really.. Only thing I'm not that fond of is Rap really..

  • What are your favorite movies?

There are just way too many movies to name.. I love most musicals, comedies, vampire/ werewolf.. Like I grew up watching Goonies, 16 Candles, Princess Bride, The Breakfast Club.. Singing in the Rain, Sound of Music, Brigadoon.. Underworld, Van Helsing, Boondock Saints.. Letters to Juliet, Sweeny Todd, Harry Potter.. Those are just a few I can think of off the top of my head..

  • What job do you have?

I'm an Educational Aide

  • Do you have a pet?

I have 2 dogs Koda (rescued lab/staffie mix) & Daphnie (puggle) as well as 2 cats both rescues Tonks (bengal cat) & Jinx and he is just a 16 lb black farm cat

  • What languages do you speak?

Only English, unless you count the country slag used by most of my family then that might count as another.. Though I do know a few words here and there in Spanish, German, French & Italian

  • A short bio about yourself.

I'm a wife, mother and caretaker.. I have 3 children. Cory is our little angel, however we have 2 surviving Kyla or 2nd daughter and a son Tyler.. I am a PTO mom. I used to coach my daughter in cheerleading and support my son's football and wrestling teams.. I've been married since I was 19.. My husband and I take care of my mother who had a stroke and she lives with us. I'm easy going or try to be..I live in Ohio and hate it, I dream of living out in the mountains out in the country somewhere one day.. I don't do well in very hot climates, big cities or crowds, the country life with animals is pure bliss for me.. I'm a huge softy when it comes to animals.. I really am a huggy type of person.. I love music, movies, kids, camping and just hanging out with family and friends..

All that being said and if you still wanna know more just ask me, I'd be happy to chat with ya, catch me in chat, MSN, Yahoo or even a PM..

Much love to all! <3 Skaya Sedai
