Hullo there! And welcome to my user page!
A bit about me
I'm a student studying Ancient History and Classical Civilizations at the University of Texas at Austin, and a native-born Texian. When I am not immersed in Xenophon or catching up on my Biblical Greek, I am enjoying fine teas (Lapsang souchong being my favorite), indulging in pipe tobacco, involved with my local Eastern Orthodox Christian parish, or much to the chagrin of my long-suffering fiancée, rambling about the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. After graduation, I hope to attend St. Vladimir's Orthodox Theological Seminary in New York to obtain my Masters of Divinity, and consequently, be ordained a priest. I'm a nerd and cajun at heart, finding delight in spicy foods and jazz. My parents' families have unique histories which are closely tied to the Texas Gulf Coast and Southern Louisiana.
My Interests in the Tolkien Legendarium
I have a wide range of interests and passions in Tolkien's world. First and foremost, I have an affection for the Second Age, particularly the histories of Numenor and Arnor. Aside from that, the history of Hobbits is another love of mine. Although a newcomer to this wiki, I hope to contribute more to the Tolkien Gateway in the future.
The meaning behind my handle
Eraisuithon (Sindarin, lit. He who is like The One) a translation for Michael (Hebrew, lit. He who is like God), my Christian name.
