    I truly love that. Specially the greek myths.

    I could immerse myself in a book about that for hours, days if I'm not doing anything. My books looks so old and wrinkled and dog-eared after only a few days of purchasing them because I keep reading them over and over again haha

    It's called mythology

    because of the Christians, but in truth it is folklore. I'm Norse, so my attention is drawn to Asgard, Vanaheim, Valhalla and the Ragnarok, all the truth about Yggdrasil. I'm not interested in some obscure Jewish man who is said to have made promises to his followers at his...
