I don’t consider myself a fangirl.

 I don’t consider myself a fangirl. I feel like that is calling me “an average teenage girl who has no idea how to act around celebrities or people.” In the past I probably have mentioned fangirls, but once I start to think about it I really wouldn’t want to be called one. I am not at any means obsessed with anyone. I don’t scream when Tom or Benedict or even Ed shows up on screen. (Although I admit I squealed when I found out about the whole Hank Williams deal) I try find interests in these movies, shows, and songs with my favorite people in them. 

 I found out about the word “fangirl” first from a fan of the widely known boyband, One Direction. I admit some of their music is really good, but I have no motivation to start stalking their tweets or Instagram photos. I got to know the girl and whadya know every time one of their songs came on,

 “OH MY WORD DO YOU HEAR THIS. THAT’S THE DUDE THAT I LIKE, HARRY. HE HAS CURLY HAIR AND HE’S BRITISH. LISTEN TO THIS THING CALLED TALENT.” 

 “Yeah, thanks. They’re pretty good.”

 “PRETTY GOOD? THEY’RE ANGELS SENT FROM GOD ABOVE.”

 “Yup.”

  Now you can get the sense of why I do not want to called a fangirl. She proudly wore and boasted the word. So thank you, but I’d rather not be called a fangirl. Nothing against the word or people who are fangirls. I just don’t want to be one. I actually have met quite a few celebs and never once screamed. I shook, yes, but never screamed. I have pity on the poor person’s ears.

 I feel like I’ll just leave the fangirl calling to the One Direction, Justin Bieber, etc…fangirls.

Random story beginning

I don’t know how to think. What to think. When to think. Or, better yet when to not think. I rely on my lack of common sense to help my decision making. I love food, but I don’t know which foods go with what. The other day I saw a bottle of ketchup and put it on a salad. It was pretty nasty. Some day I’ll end up poisoning my self. An awful death of fried potatoes and mayo. I don’t even like mayo. Isn’t there egg whites in it? I’m allergic to eggs. Seriously.

Anyway my lack of common sense and not thinking things through kicked in when the three most popular, meanest girls in school, who may I remind you that I’ve never spoken to before, come up to me and ask me to drive them to the mall. I thought nothing of it. All I thought was, Oh look they’re talking to me. I’m not invisible. Where did I put my peanut butter sandwich? Man.

My friends, no, friend, was thinking something similar. Minus the whole peanut butter sandwich deal. He gave me the whole dude-don’t-say-yes face. I’m not good at reading faces. Actually I don’t read faces at all. When I saw the dude-don’t-do-that face I mistaken it for the you-go-girl face. I agreed and the girls walked off. Now to find my sandwich. I sat at the lunch table and dug through my bag.

“Tell me you did not just do that,” my dude friend, Cyrus, sighed. I looked up.

“Do what?”

“Agree to drive them to the mall.”

I raised an eyebrow, “I did. Cyrus that worries me. Did you not hear me? You’re like fifteen and you can’t hear? I can’t even-”

“I heard you! You’re such an idiot!” He began to repeatedly bang his head on the table.

“Duh, bro. Idiot runs through my veins,” I rolled my eyes and held up my sandwich triumphantly.

Well , yeah. I had a moment and felt the need to write a story pertaining to a partially true story. Hope you enjoyed! 🙂

“I don’t think anyone, until their soul leaves their body, is past the point of no return.”

                                                                                                                                               -Tom Hiddleston

Ah, a quote from the lovely Tom Hiddleston sums up what a lot of people question daily.

Should I give up?

 Should I finally give up all want to continue on?

And as Tom says it, no. No you shouldn’t. There will be hard times, I can assure you, but never to the point of no return. So remember keep your head up, smile, and kick negativity in the butt!

Book Review: City of Orphans by Avi

Title: City of Orphans

Author: Avi

Rating: 3 out of 5 stars

Language: None

 

 I recently finished the book, “City of Orphans,” by author, Avi. At my trip to the library I came across it and thought the cover looked interesting enough. It was originally written for juveniles, but I was like, “Hey, yolo.” The illustrations, first off, were absolutely amazing. The plot had great potential, but I did not like how it was narrated. There was a lot of “ain’t”, “gonna”, “’bout”, etc. etc. That doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy it though. It was for sure a page turner. Plot twists at every turn and that is what I look for in a book.

 Overall, I enjoyed it for the most part and would suggest it, but it’s toward the end of the list. The illustrations were once more awesome. I fell in love with every character. They all had great personality. Hope this helped decide or gave you a new book to read!

Writing

The writer must write what he has to say, not speak it.”

                                                                                           – Ernest Hemingway
 
 I saw this quote and got quite a laugh out of it and it’s truth. Most writers I know write better than they do give speeches. Especially me. There’s some people though that are talented in both areas, but I am not one of them. This quote came the very talented, inspiring Ernest Hemingway, author of “The Old Man and the Sea.” (Great book, by the way.) Thought I’d share that. Hope it gave some sort of inspiration.

Tom Hiddleston will be Hank Williams!

Guys, I had a legit heart attack. Now there are two things I really love 1.Classic Country Music and 2. British actors. Now my dream and wish has come true. Tom Hiddleston will be playing THE Hank Williams in the upcoming biopic, “I Saw the Light.”  I just can’t  If you don’t know who Hank Williams is then, I have no clue what to tell you. At my lil’ ole’ country church we sing his song, “I Saw the Light,”  probably every service so I’m just ecstatic.

 I’m looking forward to seeing his Alabama accent and how he sings. (Which he will!) I just cannot even wait. I just thought I’d share my thoughts and vent out because I certainly needed to.

I just can't.

The Fault in Our Stars…?

Since this movie came out about a week ago or whenever I decided to share my feelings and thoughts on this movie and book. I don’t doubt for a second that this is a great plot. No, not at all. I actually loved the idea of following a cancer patient’s journey. I’ve been desperately searching for a clean and well written book about it. I’ve heard many, many times the suggestion of reading this and actually tried to read it myself. However I could not finish it. I barely got past the first chapter.

 From a Christian’s perspective I feel like Hazel kind of made fun of the way Christian’s believe. I can see why she would think this because she probably thought over and over again, “If there was a God why would he give me cancer,” etc. etc. But there was too much putting down. There was also a lot of cussing and inappropriate terms in which I feel like Christians should refrain from letting their spirits be exposed to. Yes, I realize you’re going to have a few cuss words in everyday life anymore, but I want to stay as far away from it as possible.

 I’ll probably get a lot of hate for that, but I really don’t care. I believe what I believe and I will choose to stick to it. This is my personal opinion and I will force NO ONE to believe the same way. It’s fine if you read and loved the book, I’m glad, but I did not and will not.

Hairstyle of the Week:)

I’ve noticed lately how a lot of girls have been wearing hairbands a lot. It’s probably been happening for like ever, but I just started paying attention. I had to get in on the action and I bought myself one at my local Rue 21 store. I tried it, but of course, I look derpy in it because I have bangs and when I see myself bangless I look derpy. Oh well. I have friends who I can gloat about when they wear headbands and look awesome. I began frantically looking for places with awesome bands and of course Etsy is my savior!

 I found this picture and I love the headband

      

headbands

I found that this beautiful work of art is from Violette Field Threads. You really should check them out and buy some stuff from them. That’s the elegant look, but if you’re a complete klutz/geek/fellow fangirl like me then you need some apparel to go along with your personality.

Here’s an awesome head band from AmandaVonDoom on Etsy. So go look at her other stuff. Then there’s MyFeatherband. You absolutely have to go look at her Tardis headband. Oh my word. I gotta get that. I don’t even care if I look derpy. Well I hope you enjoyed this post. Comment, like, and follow! If you have any other awesome shops from Etsy let me know!
Lot’s of love,
El x
