I'm so glad that you've been doing better lately. And I'm so grateful that I can help you, even if its just in the tiniest way. No...I haven't heard from Tessa. I really, really miss her. It hurts a lot that she's gone, but I understand that she needs this time away to get better and be safe with her family. I have a poem from her as well. :) Do you remember that poem and random writings thread that we had? I don't know where it went, I think the original sunshine girl poem was on there, actually. :) I've been listening to a lot of Birdy music lately, but it makes me sad because I think Tessa used to listen to her music a lot, and it makes me miss her more.
Have you seen any good movies lately? I saw the Bourne movies for the first time last year and LOVED them. The Bourne Identity is my favorite. :) Hahaha, I don't think I could ever be in a car chase. I was with my sister the other day and we were driving home and we ran out of gas on a bridge. The car's gas gage doesn't work, so we thought we had enough, but we didn't. My sister was freaking out until a cop came up behind us, and we were just like, um....help us!!! Neither of us had any money, and all he said he could do was call us a tow, and we were like, NOOOOO!! So we called one of her friends, but he couldn't come, and then we called our other sister's boyfriend and he came all the way out to where we were and filled up our tank for us enough for us to drive home safely. So he got brownie points. :)
I'll try to remember that about your Fanfiction pen name. :) I do have an account there, but I'm afraid I don't get to use it very often either.
I hope you know that I pray for you as well, mellon. :) (Almarien is just right, don't worry. It's not the name itself that is important, Tari; its the spirit in which it is said or given. O_O I'm starting to sound Gandalfy now!) You'll always be Táriuial to us, you know. And I hope that whenever you remember that name, you'll remember how much we care about you. I miss you so much, mellon! There are so many things I wish I could tell you, but I don't want to post them here...and part of me isn't ready to say them yet. I miss you so, so much, mellon nin. Keep fighting, and know that when I can't be there with you, God still is. And He loves you so much more than I ever could.
The New Year has been alright, I've been really tired and have had to fend off several lovesick boys, but that's a story for another time. That's lovely, I would love to go to a performing arts school. Coolsyrup, mellonen. *nods head* You take French? Hmm...I think you told me that one time, but my memory is horrible. I take Spanish and of course, am learning the odd dab of Sindarin or Quenya here and there. It's mostly Quenya right now though. :)
I love skating! I've never been skiing though. Our city put in a new outdoor skating rink for the winter, and I went with friends several times. It's in a really beautiful park, but the ice is a bit bumpy. Normally, I go to the rollerskating rink every week with my sister and a few friends. Its a blast. I had a "green Christmas" too, but it has snowed some, three times actually, and it didn't melt right away. Sadly, this last snowfall turned into an ice storm and a pine tree fell and squashed our family car!! We're still sorting out driving and insurance and all that, so we'll see how that goes.
In Middle Earth, I would likely live in...Rivendell!! It's so pretty. I'm assuming we're talking Third Age, if it was Midlle Earth during the Silmarillion, I would probably pick a few other places. Ah well. :) Of course I ship Faramir and Eowyn! But the book Faramir, not the movie Faramir, I've come to be sadly disappointed in him. Favorite book? I can't decide. I love all of them. I've recently come to enjoy the Two Towers movie the best, because of all the character development with Aragorn and how much it focuses on the men of Middle Earth. But I LOVE the last three scenes of FOTR, and of course I love ROTK...so hard to pick a favorite! Favorite hobbit?? Hmm...Samwise or Pippin. Pippin is awesome, but Samwise is so very near and dear to my heart. :) Favorite elvish words? I'm not sure. There are some beautiful ones, and I'll have to think about that. The Shire would be a beautiful place to live, wouldn't it? *applauds* Good for you! Are you going to finish the Silmarillion? I hope so! *frowns* "Ego mibo orch" is very impolite, you know! *laughs* But I did teach you that, didn't I...
MY MEMORY IS SO HORRIBLE RIGHT NOW WHAT EVEN....
I don't even remember what I had for lunch today. *facepalm*
I didn't even know that there was LeMis fanfic! Thats so cool, I'm going to have to go find some. :) Have you seen any of the LeMis movies?
Now its my turn to ask questions, I guess. What's your favorite color? What's your favorite childhood memory? Favorite holiday? What's your favorite song right now? (Not your favorite song of all time, just the one you like and listen to the most right now.) Mine is "Keeping Your Head Up" by Birdy. :) I like the color of lilacs and the color of a summer sky with a bright sun and no clouds. One of my favorite childhood memories is picking wildflowers with my grandmother, and another is going on a bike ride during a thunderstorm with my cousins and grandfather. Also eating oreo cookies in a hideout under some huge pine trees; I remember that very vividly. The oreos were the chocolate ones with mint centers. Maybe my memory isn't as bad as I thought LOL. My favorite holiday is Passover. I'm not Jewish, but my family celebrates it in light of Jesus being the "Lamb of God", and its such a special, symbolic time.
Unfortunately, I, a master of procrastination, must end this letter in order to go home and finish my science experiments. Which involve looking at microscope slides and then drawing and labeling them. The problem is that half the time I have no idea what I'm looking for and end up making random guesses and hope my mom won't notice or that she won't know what she's looking at either. Then I'm supposed to stretch, or going to dance class this week will kill me. We're learning firebird leaps. Or back attitude leaps, or whatever you want to call them. But I think firebird leaps sound cooler. They hurt your back though, if you don't do them smoothly enough. *awkward silence*
Goodbye, Chu. I miss you! I hope your year continues to go well, and that you get to smile and laugh a lot.
Dear MB friends,
What is this great wonder? THE MB GOT A SEARCHBAR, FINALLY!!! *does a happy dance because words cannot express how happy I am right now*
Now that I've gotten that out of my system... *huggleglomps you all*
You are special. And God loves you very much.
*ducks smacks from people who are annoyed at me sounding like VeggieTales*
One other thing...
There's quite a din...people shouting out to their friends all over the place! Do you want to hear my (quite awe-inspiring, actually) elvish battlecries? Wait, no, that's not right, I'll have to think of something else. One does not yell battlecries at one's friends. A friendly shout, mayhap? Nay, that's not for elvish maidens. I'll just have to write you all letters. :) Send them to you by pigeon. Dove? Yes, by dove. Pigeons tend to...leave people presents. And they're not nice ones, either. ^.^ LOL
You know, LOL doesn't mean what it used to anymore. People use it too casually. Like when they're not actually laughing, they still say LOL. What is that all about? Say what you mean!
I miss you all.
Remember, if you ever need to talk, or get something out of your system, I'm here to listen. Even if you don't know me. I'll try to reply as best I can.
The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious to you...the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace.
