Thranduil


This might be a long post so I apologize in advance.
Personally, I was never really a fan of Lord of the Rings. But I watched The Hobbit series because, well, my friends wanted to watch a movie and they chose that one.

Honestly, I never really understood Lord of the Rings as a child. All I know was that the movie were beautiful and long. My favourite back then as a child was Legolas. 


I only liked Legolas because, well, how could I not like him. He was good looking and he was a very good archer. Other than that, he had really nice long blonde hair and he was graceful. It was hard for me to not like him. Therefore, back then, as a child, I only watched Lord of the Rings for Legolas.

Then, when I watched The Hobbit, I was so glad to see Legolas. It was like seeing an old friend again from my childhood that I vaguely remember.

AND THEN, his father was introduced. Lord Thranduil, the King of the Wood Elves. 


From that moment on, Legolas had to move aside because I really like his father now. His father was absolutely beautiful and fabulous. However, that was not the only thing that attracted. There was something deeper in his character. The way he carries himself.

He is King but it looked like the weight of his crown was heavy, no matter how beautiful it was. And that was what interests me.

So when I watched the final movie to The Hobbit series, I truly enjoyed it because I got to see Thranduil character more.

I think the reason that I connected with Thranduil as a character is because character such as his are so rare.

I miss having fabulous kings with luscious beautiful hair who can fight when it's needed.
I miss having characters where their motives aren't shown so clearly and they are misunderstood in the beginning (some manage to see through this while others don't).

And I have a thing for characters with long perfect hair. (Lucious Malfoy from Harry Potter, Lestat from The Interview with the vampire and last but not least, Phillipe or Louis from The Man in the Iron Mask)

There are people out there who think that man are ugly with long hair. Well, they are wrong. Long hair were only for nobles in the past. It's a symbol of power and prestige. Not only that, it's also a symbol of intelligence. So yea.

The reason why I like a character like Thranduil is because I, myself, have a character like this in my head.
Yes, and his name is Xerxes.

Xerxes is my fabulous intelligent character. But at the same time, like Thranduil, there's a pain in him that is so deep rooted that it controls everything he does.

By watching Thranduil, my head is trying to give more character to Xerxes or rather make him more fabulous. I am currently wondering if I should give him long hair or his best friend, long hair. lol.

Anyhow, I guess Thranduil character is beautiful to me because he is an elf. Elves lives very deep profound lives and they only marry once. Therefore, if their loved ones die, they will never remarry and they will mourn till the end of time. He lost his wife.

And because he has a son, he has to raise his son alone and that breaks my heart.

Other than that, he probably hates fighting because he saw his father and fellow elves comrades die in the battle of the last alliance.  

This little details about his character makes me very curious about his thoughts processes and his motives.

Point is, I love Thranduil character because to me, I think it's well done.

If there was a movie just on Thranduil and Legolas, I will definitely watch it.

An open letter to the scared and confused dreamers.

This is a letter for myself. But this is also a letter for those who find themselves in the same place as I am.

I'm going to admit that life is different from what I initially thought when I was younger.

When I was younger, I assumed that by now, I would have reached or be somewhat close to the life of my dreams.

But now that I reach this point, I realised that I was wrong. I did not take into account that tertiary education took years. Personally, I don't regret my tertiary education because I did enjoy it. Yes, it was insane and difficult but it was fun and I met amazing people there.

It's been a year since my graduation and I find myself being frustrated. I felt disappointed in myself because no, I don't have my own apartment and no, I'm not rocking that cool ass job that I always  dreamed of. But no, I don't hate my job either. In that sense, I'm fortunate I suppose. But I feel that it may not be the kind of thing that I want to do.

However, for me, to get t…

Alter ego, SUIT UP!!

Man, it feels odd to have people believe in you at the very moment you do not trust yourself. It feels odd to hear people's praises of you when you're feeling incapable. So I guess, it's time for one of my many alter ego to suit up if I wanna win that debate competition!!

Like any other person, I have many alter ego's...and I'm gonna list most of them today.


Ms Drama Queen
Likes :Attention and spotlight. She's a diva.
Dislikes :People stealing her spotlight or not getting her spotlight.
She is : A real drama queen. She whines & complains alot though. She thinks that the world revolves around her.
Can't handle :Ms Productive


Ms Arrogant
Likes : Winning, winning and winning.
Dislikes : Losing and losers.
She is : A real mean arrogant person. She really doesn't care about the other people. She thinks she is the best. Mostly, she thinks that her opponents aren't even her equal unless they have proven otherwise. Even then, she still thinks she is better than …

Growing up, closure and an interview.

I guess it's time I grow up. When high school is over, I have to grow up, be a mature and a responsible little young lady.
There's alot of things I have to learn.

To be honest, I'm a little afraid of leaving graduating from high school.
WHY?
I mean, I've been going to school for years. And the thought that it will finally end is a relief but also a little frightening.

But it's a new chapter in life. Everyone goes through it. So yea, I'm afraid but excited at the same time. There's so much to do after the graduating. College, driver licence & etc...

I guess I'll miss high school a little. Never thought it would end...but yea, it will soon enough.

Before I left high school, I need some closure. I mean, I made some friends & lost some friends. I do have some regrets. I was such an idiot and arrogant ass last time.
So yea, before high school end, I need to send some letters to the few people I hurt.



But I guess, that's high school. You make a hell lot of…
