My name is Branna Laurelin, and I am a faery soul from the forests of Norway. This is a seasonal nature blog, as well as reflecting my passions in life: Playing the harp, creatures from fairy tales and mythology, everything Celtic and/or Irish (especially the music and art), and creating jewellery inspired by the world of fantasy and the organic shapes in nature. Here I will share what inspires me, and hope that I in turn can inspire you.

Anonymous asked:

If you wouldn't have studied the Irish language, what else would you have studied?

Oh, who can say what I would have done? At the time the only thing I really wanted to do was to learn Irish and everything that had to do with the history and culture of the Celts in general and Irish Celts in particular, so I didn’t really think of any other alternatives. I did consider studying Japanese too as a secondary study, since that’s another language I’ve always loved, but I figured it would be too much to learn two so completely different languages at the same time, so I chose English instead. 

Now, if I could go back and choose again, keeping the knowledge I have now, I think I would have done things differently. I wouldn’t have chosen Irish as my main study, but rather study it on the side of something with more career opportunities. Possible studies to consider would be archaeology (even if I didn’t get to work in the field digging up exciting ancient relics, I could still work in a museum and surround myself with history), librarian (for my love of books), heritage conservation, linguistics/etymology or Medieval studies. 

Alas, as things are now I can’t afford more studies, since my husband and I are finally within reach of fulfilling our dream to buy our own house within a year or so, so we need all the money we can get to do that. But if I can ever afford it in the future I will definitely get more education, probably in one of the fields above.
