mythology meme:  [1/9] deities

↳ Freyja

Freyja (Old Norse for ‘Lady’) is the goddess of love, beauty, fertility, magic, and war. She rides a chariot pulled by two cats and owns both the mythical necklace Brísingamen and a cloak made of falcon feathers.

She and her twin brother Freyr are part of the Vanir, a group of gods associated with nature and magic. In the Prose Edda, Freyr and Freyja are referred to as the most glorious of all the gods and goddesses. 

Freyja is married to a god named Óðr and has two daughters with him, who are called Hnoss and Gersemi; her dwelling is called Fólkvangr and since she’s one of the Valkyries, her halls host half of those who die in battle.

I don’t like bullies. I don’t care where they come from.

And some things that should not have been forgotten were lost. History became legend. Legend became myth.

What time and date is it there: September 21, 8:51 p.m.

Average hours of sleep I get each night: Between 7 and 8 (I deliberately try to sleep about 8 hours a night because I’m more functional that way, not to mention in a better mood).

The last thing I Googled was: Allen Ginsberg’s poems because I’d watched Kill Your Darlings and hadn’t read his poetry in a while.

First word that comes to mind: reading (cause I’m hoping to do some of that tonight)

Three things I can’t live without: literature, my computer, writing

Something I plan on learning: The following is absolutely true, I swear: Tolkien’s Elvish (spoken and written), writing something neat in alliterative verse, calligraphy, Swedish.

A piece of advice for all my followers: Don’t be wary of the silent ones. Talk to them because they have the best stories to tell (a piece of advice that had been given to me.)

Benedict Cumberbatch for InStyle TIFF 2014 [x]

I am a demanding creature. I am selfish and cruel and extremely unreasonable. But I am your servant. When you starve I will feed you; when you are sick I will tend you. I crawl at your feet; for before your love, your kisses, I am debased. For you alone I will be weak.

You have to be odd to be number one.

Dr. Seuss

This changed me
