It was more of a general statement than one directed at anything in particular. I'm changing my name so I can avoid this because where I am change is not happening at all. Like, actually, they're trying to pass laws that will actively make my life worse.

Could you drop the A in your name and be Manda. That's a more masculine name, I think? Or are you thinking of changing your name entirely?

Manda is also feminine, at least as far as people here are concerned (most people actually call me that instead of Amanda in person). Honestly, while there are masculine variations of my name (Amandus or Amando in particular), I have no strong feelings about them and don't really see myself going by them. I'm particularly partial towards Larkin and I don't like anything else more than that, though I'm still doubting myself enough to say I'm still "questioning" it. Some of my friends have been calling me Larkin and I do really like it; it feels "right", I guess. I also like Caelan and Tristram (which is apparently a family name in my mom's dad's family), so I'm inclined towards going by Larkin Tristram, specifically.

Amandus is actually really cool. In Australia a cheeky young male who mucks around and has a good time is called a larrikin (synonym: maverick). So whenever I see your name I think of larrikin.

Well, Amandus is a really old name. Despite the root of both names being the Latin word amanda, Amandus has documentation far earlier than Amanda as a name. There's a few variations though. In particular, there's a Saint Amandus from the 5th century as well as a Saint Amand from the 7th century and multiple Saints Amantius. If you decide to look that up, ignore Wikipedia as it calls Amandus and Amand the same person when they were not. So, in that sense, I definitely can geek out over it, but it's just that nothing sounds as good as Larkin does to me, for some reason. I'm also not really religious at all, so going by the name of a saint is a bit weird to me.

And I can't say I really fit the definition of that word, but it is funny that there's a word so close to this name I'm inclined towards. Larkin is probably a variation of Lorcan, an Irish name; though Larkin is actually primarily a surname (not that I care), while Lorcan is generally a first name. Caelan is another Irish name, but I don't like it as much as I like Larkin, though I do like it a lot.

Tristram is just kind of a family name in my late grandfather's family, there's a lot of men named [first name] Tristram Coffin in his family.

I finally confessed my feelings to my upperclassman whom I had a crush with for almost two years. I was rejected. He said that I was a little brother to him, and he doesn't want to date those who are really close to him.

And I slipped out from Platinum II to Platinum III facing demotion to Platinum IV. Fck.
Thanks to winston gergill (muh Valentine in 2016)for the sig!

It happens, but I don't think you should feel discouraged by it. There'll be other guys :3

@Bard, all those name discussions remind me of the vampire Armand from Anne Rice. All the options you listed are strong names, I love them
Thank you Tsuki for the sig!

Damn Bronze be hard. XD. Nunu & Willump had several moments of disco-ish Nunu & Willump. Herp, let me go dive right into 4 of them for funsies without the rest of my team nearby. Hey Nunu we could really use your attack speed slow...nevermind. And kog couldn't really kite or position, so I had to keep coming back and peeling attackers off of him rather than killing their back line.

Maokai on the PBE looks really bad. I don't know what I'm going to do with him anymore. :/
