Long ago, around 2004 or 2005, it was a huge trend to trade pokemon cards at our school. I had started to collect bird pokemon cards, and when i traded with some random boy, he called me “lintufriikki” which means “a bird freak”. I immediately liked the sound of that name, and have been using it as my alias ever since. It is the perfect name, because I have loved birds my entire life.
Nowadays people just call me Lintu, which means a bird in Finnish. UvU
btw I still have the bird pokemon collection and sometimes I look through it and just admire how beautiful it is……..
