It's really scary how much of my life is being put aside for LOTR. I mean, it even freaks me out sometime. However, there is just so much serenity and comfort in this other world; and it doesn't even seem made up anymore. I find that there is ALWAYS something more to be found regarding LOTR and I can't help but go looking for it. I know I should be concentrating more on "the now" and um, what we call reality, but do I really have to? Is this unhealthy? Hm.

Aii, me too. Re-reading the History of Middle Earth and The Hero with a Thousand Faces really isn't helping either. *giggles*

Re:

Yeah, I'm watching the movies every day, whether it be the theatrical releases or the EEs, or just the documentary extras, and reading/re-reading The Silmarillion and The Hobbit and The Languages of Tolkien's Middle-earth simultaneously because I need SOMETHING to keep me going here! Woo. Obsessive. *sigh*

*sigh* I'm the same way. It probably is unhealthy but hey...at least we're not alone in it right? :)

Re:

That's what I tell myself to make it seem a little better...that I'm not the only one. My friend did say to me a few months ago: "But you know what? I think it's really good that you're so passionate about something." I really appreciate him for saying that ^_^ It makes me feel better too.

That's definitely a good way to look at it. :)

I'm doing the same thing. I don't even read the newspaper every day anymore. Most likely it's very unhealthy but then again, at least I'm happy. Happy is healthy, right? So screw everyone else.
