Concerning My Ethnic Background


Ana/Elfie asked about my heritage/ethnic background and I’d like to answer that real fast. 😉

First off, I offer my condolences to you, Ana. Any death in the family is hard. Thankfully, no one close to me has ever died, but if you were close to your grandpa, I understand how you feel on a small scale. 😦 *hugs*

I’m, like, a buffet. A main course of American and Lebanese with Scottish, Irish, German, Native American, Egyptian (maybe not even anymore, but it’s cool to think, so let me dream), and who knows what else sprinkled in there. 😛

My mum’s American, Irish, Scottish, German, Native American, and I think there’s a couple more, but yeah.

And then my dad is Lebanese and maybe Egyptian. 😛 He was born and raised there along with the rest of his family and moved here when he was 18 with his 19 year old brother for college. 🙂 He worked for my mom’s dad for a while and then she and him got married.

I don’t look Lebanese though. I just got the big nose. <_< And the puffy lower lip. *sigh* And some royal blood. Yeah. My name also means “queenly.” Coincidence? I don’t think so. 😛

Oh! I made an owl hat (using this pattern). I gave it to my soon-to-be uncle-in-law (is that what you call ’em?). He and my aunt and their baby are the owl family. The girls got matching pink ones. ^_^ (I’m wishing I kept it now, ’cause we’re heading into 40 degree weather — don’t look at me like that. I’m a Florida girl used to 80/90 degree weather. But I’m not tan. No, I’m a pale thing. My friend told me to use blush since I “looked dead.” — She was just joking though… I think.)

And now I’m off to get stuff (not sure what, but stuff) done before the 3-day long speech and debate tournament! Exhausting, but totally worth it. 😉

January’s first round of questions will be up some time after I get back!

In the meantime, don’t die and keep your chins up! ❤

God bless!

  1. Wow, your heritage is AWESOME! Thanks for answering, beautiful! I’m a halfsie, myself — half Bolivian, so I have Korean eyes and monstrous lips. Makes me quite unbalanced facially. XD Cute hat!!!! Good luck in your tournament!!
    January — do YOU like owls?

    • And thank you for your kind words about my grandpa. 🙂 We weren’t terribly close, but he’s still awesome. Right now he’s hanging out with my little brother that someday will be born. *nods sagely* I feel left out. XD
