Dorming worries.

This is only a small portion of my stuff.
I'm going to be moving into my college dorm this weekend and I am excited, terrified, and nervous. This is my third year of college, but I have yet to get that dorming experience. On top of that, this is my third college. Yup. I've transferred a lot, but the school I'm finally going will allow me to pursue my interests in graphic design which I'm very relieved and happy about. I can't wait to take my classes this semester! In addition to a couple of literature courses I'm going to be taking a typography, color and design, and a graphic novel class. I'm really hoping I'll be able to draw and create stories for my LOTRO characters.
My schedule is a bit weird since I'm transferring in and kinda of had last pickings, so I have a class during the weekend which sucks but oh well, I'll do it if I must.

I'm very scared to meet my roommates... what if they don't like me? What if I'm too eager? What if they don't like LOTR???? These thoughts run through my mind constantly throughout the day. I'm planning on putting up a Middle-earth map poster, so hopefully they don't mind. HOPEFULLY THEY DON'T HATE TOLKIEN.

Okay, so back to the exciting part. I'll be dorming! I'll be independent! Well I'll only be like an hour from home BUT STILL. Hopefully I'm not over packing... but I probably am.

LOTRO Character Bios

**Yes. I am aware not everything I've written is canon.**

 Alellea "Inkwell" Fairbloom (guardian): To help her mother, Alellea took on the role of second parent (only at age 20 - barely in her tweens) to her three younger siblings after her father died. Like her father, she studies the art of cartography and hopes to be as good as he was. She spends her time pouring over her father's maps and making her way across the Shire. As a few years went by she decided she wanted to see as much of Middle-earth as much as she can, something her father never got to do.
After her mom assured Alellea that she and the little ones would be okay she started her journey. She is often found in shops buying supplies for maps or silently sitting in taverns listening to live music by the fireplace. Alellea a fairly quiet hobbit and isn't quick to talk to new people but she's very kind and open to make friends. Though her surname is Fairbloom she has started to use Inkwell when meeting strangers, but once she becomes comfortable around someone she'll reveal her real name.

What I've been up to in virtual Middle-earth.

I've been pretty productive this past month....in LOTRO! I got Alellea, my guardian, to level 50 FINALLY. It seemed like it took forever. I've been questing in Forochel since I didn't feel like the Trollshaws was that much fun. I really really do like Forochel, especially at night! It's taking me a long time to become kindred with the Lossoth, I only just made it to ally this week. I am determined to get all of the cloaks! And the prized tundra steed.
