Thanks for following. Because I have been so busy, I forgot to right you all personal messages. If you still follow me after two years, I’ll write you a whole paper.
Your blogs are awesome.

Well, my flight has been delayed, so I have time to further explain what I’m doing. In the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter_Day Saints, LDS or Mormon church, when a male becomes 19, he has the option to serve a mission, which entails going abroad for two years to teach about our church Jesus, our set of Scriptures called the Book of Mormon and to just do service in general. While it is very strongly recommended for boys, girls have more of a decision on wither or not to go. I, of my own free will and being of sound mind and somewhat flabby body, have come to the decision of going on one. I could have said no and still be in my church, still do everything I could have done upon returning from a mission and not be punished in any way. When my application for a mission was turned in and looked at, with much prayer and deliberation, the LDS president and prophet, called me to serve in the Teresina, Brazil mission. I’ll be around the northern part that’s a little to the east. I’m sad that my friends and family won’t see me for two years, but I’m excited to go.

I hope all of you have a great Christmas and enjoy the New Year.
All I can say is think fondly of me, or just do whatever. This is the internet, I hear.

Farewell to Lórien.
This is my favorite fucking scene.
If you’ve read the Silmarillion, you know who Fëanor was. If you don’t, Fëanor was the dickhead who created the Silmarils: three indescribably beautiful and magical jewels that contained the light and essence of the world before it became flawed. They were the catalyst for basically every important thing that happened in the First Age of Middle Earth.
It is thought that the inspiration for the Silmarils came to Fëanor from the sight of Galadriel’s shining, silver-gold hair.
He begged her three times for single strand of her beautiful hair. And every time, Galadriel refused him. Even when she was young, Galadriel’s ability to see into other’s hearts was very strong, and she knew that Fëanor was filled with nothing but fire and greed.
Fast forward to the end of the Third Age.
Gimli, visiting Lorien, is also struck by Galadriel’s beauty. During the scene where she’s passing out her parting gifts to the Fellowship, Galadriel stops empty-handed in front of Gimli, because she doesn’t know what to offer a Dwarf. Gimli tells her: no gold, no treasure… just a single strand of hair to remember her beauty by.
She gives him three. Three.
And this is why Gimli gets to be an Elf Friend, people. Because Galadriel looks at him and thinks he deserves what she refused the greatest Elf who ever lived—- and then twice that. And because he has no idea of the significance of what she’s just given him, but he’s going to treasure it the rest of his life anyway.
Just look at that smile on Legolas’s face in the last panel. He gets it. He knows the backstory. And I’m pretty sure this is the moment he reconsiders whether Elves and Dwarves can’t be friends after all.
Everyone look at this great fucking post
