ashkiryn: (epic bromance and aragorn)
I am mildly annoyed for the moment. I uploaded this pic to use for when I finished reading The Two Towers, and the entry I'll eventually post about that, and then I tried to upload 3 different pictures of Aragorn for this entry, but for some strange reason it wouldn't let me. When it got to the part where you size the picture, it kept reverting back to this one. So...okay then, stupid picture. Whatevs. At least Aragorn's still in this one, I guess.

ANYWAY. So, last time, I talked about The Hobbit. This time around, it's time to talk about the first "book" of the Lord of the Rings "trilogy" proper: The Fellowship of the Ring.

(Mildly interesting factoid: the assumption that LOTR is a trilogy is actually incorrect. Tolkien wrote it all as one book, but his editor/some person with executive power insisted on publishing it into three volumes, because otherwise the book would have been too big, and supposedly there were paper shortages. They also therefore got into quite a few arguments over the titles of each volume; Tolkien was admantly against naming the third book "The Return of the King" because he (correctly, in my opinion) thought it was a huge spoiler for the book, but he was overruled.)

So. SO SO SO. Where to begin for my first post on LJ? Talking about a book that I've read recently, in this case, The Hobbit!

First, I suppose I should share a little of my logic behind creating this thing. So, as you, the potential reader of this journal, may or may not be aware of, but I am currently suffering through a bout of depression. Now, I'm on meds, and have started counseling and all that, but I've been told by my mother (who inevitably seems to be my chief confidant) that part of my problem is inherent loneliness. I mean...I don't really have anyone to truly gush at in my real life, or anyone to really confide in. Like...most of my friends simply haven't read the same books that I have, or played the video games that I do, or they are simply too far away, and we are all terrible at keeping in contact with each other. Online friends are a bit better in this regard, but are ultimately more distracting. Anyway, so the point is that I'm creating this journal to fully give myself a place to...gush? Vent what's on my mind, and about what I've been doing recently?

The second part of my reasoning stems from the fact that my doctors have told me that it's a pretty good idea for me to start keeping a journal. Pretty much same as above--this would give me a place to exercise any pent up emotions and make me stop repressing things and freaking out and having panic attacks, etc, etc. Plus, I'm physically disabled (more in-depth details will be a topic for another day...), so it's easier for me to type than it is to handwrite. So....tada! Here I am.
