"I think being creative is a waste of time and money." This is a quote from "Miss Charming," the comic relief in the movie based on Shannon Hale's Austenland. I laugh at this line every time, as the characters who are supposed to be having a "genuine" Jane Austen experience use hot glue guns to create… Continue reading Being creative is hard…
Happy Tolkien Reading Day! Since many people won't have time to read an entire Tolkien book today, I've decided to share a poem, so all of you are covered! This poem is from The Lord of the Rings and, in the book, was written by Bilbo about Aragorn. "All that is gold does not glitter, Not… Continue reading Happy Tolkien Reading Day!
Aaaaand...I'm back--after a crazy couple of weeks. Two weeks ago, I moved into a new apartment in a new town, and I'm still trying to get all my things situated. One reason the unpacking process has taken so long is because I darted away to North Carolina shortly after moving in, and I stayed there… Continue reading Travelling, New Sights, and a Hobbit Heart
Yesterday while attending the Medieval Fair in Norman, Oklahoma, I probably had more fun than a normal grown-up should have. For one thing, I got to ride a horse.

But today is a special occasion because...today's HOBBIT DAY! Just in case you're wondering, I did not make this up. It's actually a thing. Just google… Continue reading Happy Hobbit Day!
Enjoy The Lord of the Rings books and movies much? Yeah, me too. A lot. I also enjoy some of the Lord of the Rings parodies that people post on YouTube. I have seen plenty of them over the years and have enjoyed some of them so much that I want to share. So today's your lucky day! Included… Continue reading The Ultimate LORD OF THE RINGS Parody Collection
So, here it goes everyone. After these five months of blogging, I just thought I should let you know something important about myself. You might have been able to tell from my previous posts, but here it is straight out: I'm a big, giant NERD! Okay, there. I said it, and there's no taking it… Continue reading My NERD-alicious Bucket List
