||I'm a Junior in high school and am currently living in Carrollton, Texas. To deal with the stress of school and AP classes, I play the cello in the school orchestra, and dance, write, take pictures and draw on the side. I live with my brother and sister, along with three cats named Pip, Andre and Smokey, six rats, two gerbils and my sister's hamster. It's probably apparent that I love the Lord of the Rings, hobbits mainly, and have developed a passion for Celtic and Medieval history as well as music. I also adore Joan of Arcadia and art. Future plans include college, though I'm not sure where or what for. I first read Tolkien after The Fellowship of the Ring came to theaters, so I'm relatively new to the fandom, but am quite in love, none the less.
