Meet my Middle-earth News Family
I have already met the U.S. members from Middle-earth News (you can read about it here), but that was so long ago and I desperately want to see them again! Not only them, but the European peeps too! We all pretty much talk to each other everyday and I can’t even begin to imagine how much fun we would have together. Our LOTR marathon would be epic and hilarious!
Some of you probably already know this but I’m a graphic design major (hopefully graduating soon!!) and I love watching Broadway shows (mainly musicals). Since I’m not an actor or singer, any dreams of starring in a musical are unrealistic. I’d still love to be able to work in the NYC theatre world as a designer. Making ads for musicals/plays, developing logos, do marketing…this is my dream job.
Become a Tolkien Scholar
While I love all things relating to Tolkien and hoard too many books, I’m no where near becoming a scholar but it’s something I hope to accomplish one day. I want to be that person who can drop trivia at any time, answer people’s questions, speak Sindarin, and know how to write in Tengwar. I have a lot of study material (too many books, haha) at my disposal, so it is a possibility for me. I just need to find the time and determination to really get down and learn as much as I can.
Collect, Collect and Collect!
A big dream of mine is for my Tolkien Collection to keep growing. Hopefully when I get a place of my own, I’ll be able to really get it set up nicely. Imagine a room of Middle-earth. There are so many book editions, action figures, statues and movie memorabilia that I want to own. It would be a dream come true to have a good job and home where I’m able to focus on collecting.
I’ve always wanted to cosplay but it’s basically an impossible dream for me because I don’t sew at all. I’m so envious of cosplayers, they get to be their favorite characters! I wish I had the talent and drive to cosplay, and I hope that one day I will. My friend Rachel makes fun of me because I want to cosplay as the most random characters: Cabbage Man from Avatar: The Last Airbender, the Matchmaker from Mulan and Old Bilbo (Grey Havens scene). I also want to be a Kyoshi Warrior and Eowyn (have you seen her dresses???)
I’m the type of person to start something and never finish it, and this relates mostly to all the books collecting dust in my bookshelf. Reading is FUN, but I’m a horrible person and always put it off. There are currently five books I need to finish and I can’t even begin to count the number of series and books I want to start. There are so many great stories out there, worlds I want to explore and what happens? I don’t read. I suck.
Attend More Tolkien Events
HobbitCon, RingCon, MythMoot, OxonMoot…I want to go to all of these events! If it’s Tolkien-related, I want to be there. Especially if that means there will be tons of other fans and scholars to talk to. And I know this isn’t exactly Tolkien-related, but I want to go to a Renaissance Fair. I am filled with lots of shame because I don’t know the joy of a giant Ren Fair turkey leg.
I don’t really know who to tag, so if you’re reading this and it sounds like something you want to do, I nominate you!
