Hello, everyone! To celebrate recently hitting 4,000 followers, I’ve decided that now is a great time for my second giveaway! You guys have gone above and beyond to make my tumblr experience amazing, and this giveaway is an attempt to thank you all for being so great.

Whereas my last giveaway had a multi-fandom focus, this time I’m going a bit more specific with a Lord of the Rings/Hobbit theme! I’m particularly grateful to The Hobbit fandom for all of their support lately, and I hope this is an adequate thank-you.

Here is what the winner will get:

  • Lord of the Rings DVDs (Special Extended Edition), newly purchased and with hours and hours of behind-the-scenes features and commentaries.
  • Two keychains, both of which have the Tolkien symbol on one side and ‘not all those who wander are lost’ on the other side.
  • Thorin’s Map, complete with aging around the edges. 
  • A small Thorin’s Key necklace, complete with one of my old chains to make it wearable.
  • Bilbo, Gollum, and Gandalf plushies (Gandalf and Bilbo even come complete with Sting and Glamdring!)
  • Company of Thorin Oakenshield Mug, with the outlines of the company wrapped around it.
  • A copy of The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien, newly purchased with one of the most iconic covers.
  • A selection of buttons,including some with adorable and awesome caricatures of Fili, Kili, Dwalin, Bofur, Bilbo, Thorin, Gandalf, and Hipster Thranduil. (The person I got them from on etsy has since closed their shop!)
  • The One Ring to Rule Them All, complete with thick silver chain, because it wouldn’t be a proper LotR-themed giveaway without one.

Here are the rules:

  1. Reblog this post and then click here in order to enter. This is super important! Tumblr has been removing notes from posts, making it very difficult to have a fair giveaway. We can work around this problem by clicking the link after each reblog to make sure you are fairly entered. 
  2. You must be following me in order to win. This giveaway is a way to appreciate and thank my followers, but that doesn’t really work so well if you’re not following me.
  3. You can reblog this post as many times as you like! Each reblog counts as its own entry. Just make sure to click the link every time you reblog!
  4. I’ll be using a random number generator to decide the winner.
  5. Please make sure to have your ask box enabled so that I can message you if you win!
  6. I will happily ship anywhere in the world. Seriously, the sky’s the limit! (My last giveaway had a winner from Scotland!)
  7. The giveaway will be ending on 12:00AM PST on July 1, 2013. The winner will be announced the next day. 
Thank you guys so much for being awesome!
Love from,
Emiliana

Song I wrote for a class. There are no effects in this song, just pure voice and Uke how I sang and how I played.  It’s pretty much live, except I sing harmonies to myself, which I can’t do live, obviously.

“The Great Perhaps” (lyrics from the novel Looking for Alaska by John Green)

for optimal listening- put yo headphones in :)

This is BEAUTIFUL. Is there a way to download songs off tumblr?

The Cycle of Abuse Illustrated Through Single Photos and Multiple Models

Statistics show that 70% of people who are abused as children will grow up into adults who will in turn abuse children. A recent awareness ad campaign by Mexican organization Save the Children shared this fact in single photographs that are both creative and difficult to stomach.

The advertisements were originally published back in May 2012, and were created by Mexican agency Y&R and photographer Ale Burset.

Each one uses five models showing one individual at different stages of life. In the foreground, the individual is experiencing abuse as a child. Older versions of the abused child grow up as they walk across the background of the frame, and turn into the original abuser by the time they walk a full circle.

“70% of abused children turn into abusive adults. Donate at savethechildren.mx,” the advertisements say.

This is… /terrifyingly/ well-done.

I am finished with this site

(We’re taking a calculus final. The TA is a well-known Lord of the Rings fan, and we’ve had running LotR jokes all semester.)

TA:

“Okay, guys, everyone look at me. We’ve been over the rules, but just in case: no notes, pencil your answers in on the scantron sheet, and graphing calculators only – no more ‘can I just used my cell phone’ nonsense.”

Student:

“[TA's name], my calculator batteries just died! What should I do?”

TA:

“Here, I’ve got a big box of spares.”

Student:

*struggling* “I can’t get this packaging open…”

Student 2:

“Here, I’ve got a pocket knife.”

TA:

“And I’ve got a pair of scissors if you need them.”

Student 3:

*from the back of the room* “OR MY AXE!”

(Everyone starts laughing.)

TA:

“The only axes allowed on the exam are in the graph section.”

(Everyone groans.)

TA:

“Oh, come on, you’re in a math class. Deal with the math jokes.”

(The professor enters with a stack of exams. With him are two exam proctors.)

Professor:

“Tolkien jokes already, [TA's name]?”

TA:

“Hey, I didn’t start it.”

(The professor starts handing stacks of exams to the TA and proctors.)

Professor:

“But I’m about to finish it. [TA], take these exams down the left flank. [Proctor 1], follow the desks down the center. [Proctor 2], take your exams right, along the wall.”

(At this point, many of the students have realized where this is going:

Theoden’s lines from ‘Return of the King.’)

Professor:

“Forth, and fear no problems! Solve! Solve, students of calculus! Points shall be taken, scores shall be splintered! A pencil day! A red-ink day! Until three thirty!”

(The professor pulls out a pencil, holding it out like a sword, and runs down the first row holding it out. Students hold up their pencils, hitting his as he passes.)

Professor:

“Solve now! Solve now! Solve to good grades and the class ending! MAAATH!”

Entire Class:

“MAAATH!”

Professor:

“MAAAAATH!”

Entire Class:

“MAAAAAATH!”

Professor:

“Forth, exam-takers!”

(The entire class rises to their feet and gives him a standing ovation. A week later, we get an email from the professor.)

Professor:

*at the end of the email* “PS: I appreciate all of you who wrote in their evaluations that I was the one professor to rule them all, but the best one yet was the student who called me ‘Mathrandir.’”
