Stuff about me...
My name is Faro.
I'm 20 years old, but i'm immature for my age.
I do well in my studies to become an pharmacist, and I do my best to keep up with what's going on in the world.
I work in my college's writing center as a grammar nazi
I wear many different hats; I'm a student, a brother, a devout, pro-life Catholic, a best friend, an Eagle Scout, an ex-boyfriend, a nerdfighter, a crying shoulder, the reason for someone's pain, and someone's happiness.
I'm a summoner on the Fields of Justice, a mercenary for Reliable Excavation Demolition, a Gielinorian, a Gryffindor, a Bravest Warrior, an Irakka, and a High Paladin of the Crimson Keep.
I'm an Assistant Scoutmaster, an editor, a chauffeur, and "husband material".
I am in search of a Great Perhaps.
I recently came back to Gaia after a long hiatus.
I tried coming back several times (heck, I may not log back in for years after this; i just wanted to update my profile) but I wasn't terribly excited to. Whenever I log back in to something I haven't in a long time, I see a long list of people I made memories with - people who shared part of themselves with me; people I would probably never be able to contact again.
This fills me with a certain sadness - I invest a lot in people, i.e. time, money, emotion. When someone disappears off the face of the earth, I feel like part of me is gone.
But that's why I want to dedicate this to you, and you know who you are.
I hope you may one day read this, but if you never do, I completely understand.
You helped make Gaia an era for me. You made it important, and my life tolerable.
So thank you.

"People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway.
If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway.
Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway." - Credited to Mother Teresa of Clacutta.
