I break hiatus for all of ten minutes and suddenly I start to think maybe I don’t really need this website anymore.
GUYS I’VE DISCOVERED THE SECRET TO NOT NEEDING TUMBLR.
What do I do with myself?
Dear Ringers and Tolkienites,
I’ve just found out through his owner’s Facebook page that Blanco, better known to all of us as Shadowfax, has passed away. He became very ill in late March and after two weeks at a veterinary hospital for horses, he was finally put to sleep. Cynthia, his owner, who loved him dearly, did all she could and was with him when he went. She is in a very difficult place now, having lost her good friend and having to pay for his medical bills.
I think it’s safe to say that the Tolkien community has been touched by this beautiful boy. He was everything we imagined Shadowfax to be, and a wonderful friend to Cynthia. She has set up a fundraiser to help pay for his treatment bills, as she’s having trouble financially dealing with other issues. If you have anything to spare, please donate to her, out of love and memory for this beautiful horse, who will live on forever in our hearts.
Rest Easy, Blanco. Thank You. ♥
Note: due to the IB, I will be on Tumblr hiatus. I do not know how long this will last. I will actually log out (*gasp*), and be pushing my streak for as long as possible.
Once I log back in again, I will start the streak over.
This is a temporary hiatus - I will be “tumblr dieting” until after exams (ie. mid-may).
Please excuse me.
Feel free to reblog if you would like to join me in this hiatus. For all the IB May 2014 students - I wish you concentration, clarity, and good, good luck.
I love you all.
First few seconds: “eh, okay, it’s pretty good”
Half a minute in: “wow, this guy rocks!”
When shit gets real: “ARE YOU FRICKLING KIDDING ME WHAT”
