“May it be a light to you in dark places when all other lights go out”
A quote by J.R.R. Tolkien in The Fellowship of The Ring, but the story behind wanting this has nothing to do with the book.
I was told when I was younger the when lights went out it was a guardian angel giving you a sign they were watching over you. Every time I have a bad day or night, lights always go out and it reminds me of my grandfather who passed when I was 7, hence the street lamp. I got it on the 15th anniversary of his death, and it’s honestly my favorite of all of mine. Done at Route 42 Tattoo in Ohio by Rob Harper.
Hello guys! Firstly, you should know how much I dislike things like this. You know where people you don’t know ask you for help. It’s annoying to see on your dash and for that I am really sorry.
Now, on to the story. As a few of my followers might remember, I was given the opportunity to study Literature in England and Scotland this upcoming summer. I didn’t think I had the financial abilities to reach that it and so I let it go. It’s true that still I don’t have enough money to make it, but I do have more of one thing. I have more of you guys. Yes, you my followers. In fact, if each of my followers only give me one whole dollar I will be able to go to England.
Like I said before, I hate doing this. I absolutely dislike it, but I hate the idea of passing up this opportunity even more. Honestly, it is once in a life time opportunity. I’ll be getting to stay in Europe for 4 weeks of my life. Not just to travel, but to gain credits I need to get my masters in English Literature.
As a SURPRISE and also because I feel horrible for even asking, I’ve decided to do a give away of sorts! I’m not exactly sure what I’d be able to give away, but a give away will happen and it will be awesome.
Still, I’d really appreciate it if you’d consider just giving one dollar. I have a PayPal link attached to my blog now, so you can easily hit donate and give.
