    Shalom TarValon.Net,

    My name is Tikvah. I'm 27 years old and I come from Sweden. I'm a Noachide and I hope to convert to Orthodox Judaism in the near future. I'm (totally) blind and I've a guide dog who's named Hera. She's a black Labrador and I love her! I'm a student and I'm studying Literature at the university. I'm living at my twin sister's right now because I don't know where I'll live in the future. I hope to be able to move overseas because Sweden doesn't feel like home for me.

    I love to be with my family, pets and few friends. I'm enjoying reading and writing. I'm interested in Animals (Cats and Dogs), Cultures, History, Languages (English, French, Hebrew and Yiddish), Literature, Music, Nature, Reading, Religion (Judaism and Noachidism), Sport (Athletics, Figure Skating, Skiing and Swimming) and Writing.

    I'm a modest and kind-hearted woman who tries to re-discover who I really am. I think that I'm humble, friendly and philosophic. I try to find the happiness in my everyday life and serve Hashem (G-d) with joy.

    I love reading and I discovered The Wheel of Time series in December last year. I really enjoyed what I read but at that time I couldn't dive deep down into the books. It gave me joy during a difficult and stressful time so I'm very thankful for that. Now, I've decided to re-read the books therefore I've joined TarValon.Net.

    Welcome to TV.net, Tikvah! It seems we have a lot in common. I like most of the things you mentioned. :) Animals, cultures, history, languages, writing. And I think it's a good thing that you're trying to re-discover yourself. Even though no one can understand you better than yourself, it's fun to find out new things about yourself. I hope that made sense.

    Good luck on your re-read! Those can be fun, too!

    Welcome to TarValon! :D

    I want to do a re-read sometime... I've only read each book once so far. It'll have to wait until I finish the books on my current to-read list, though. :p

    Welcome! Another twin! Kassina and I are twins as well!

    I also share vision problems with you. I'm not totally blind, but I am clinically blind and without my glasses I can't function. Your guide dog sounds like she must be fabulous! My little baby is a Springer Spaniel and she's my sweetheart!

    Glad you found the community!
