"In the land of Mordor, in the fires of Mount Doom, the Dark Lord Sauron forged in secret, a master ring, to control all others. And into this ring he poured all his cruelty, his malice and his will to dominate all life. One ring to rule them all. One by one, the free peoples of Middle Earth fell to the power of the Ring. But there were some who resisted."
- The Lady Galadriel, The Fellowship of the Ring
I promise, I'm not into forging great rings of power. No, instead, I'm into the most delightfully fantastic series book series and film series ever crafted by the world of men, both The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. There, now you can say that you know me, or pretty much the part that counts.
As for the other stuff, my name is Carissa. My blog is Musings of an Introvert even though the url is cabdriversandcoffeepots. That url is what happens after you've watched Cary Grant's Arsenic & Old Lace one too many times! Oh, the glories of hindsight.
I'm a writer. Yes, a writer, even though I HATE writing these introductions and think I come off as stilted. My fiction is much more relaxed, as are my blog posts. Why do my introduction posts suck so badly? Search me!
I work in a library, but probably for not much longer. I just finished my BA degree at Regent University and I'm trusting the Lord (yes, Christian) to lead me to a new job, preferably full-time with health benefits in a Christian organization.
I love to crochet and to knit, obviously to write, enjoy baking, sometimes running, and overall, I'm just . . . me. How do you ever describe yourself? It's like I'm trying to sell myself to a future employer and I don't really feel the need to do that here. So, the posts you'll find are about movies, books, afternoon tea, holidays, friends, and themed posts on my favorite subjects like The Lord of the Rings. You're catching on that I'm obsessed with Tolkien, right? Because if you haven't caught onto that, do so now . . . because I am obsessed.
If you know me in the "real" world, make sure to reply to a post or something and let me know.
