Life Of A Fangirl


So believe or not- although you probably will, if you have been will me awhile –  I am a bit of a fangirl. For those who don’t know what that is  a fangirl is – basically – *a female fan, especially one who is obsessive about comics, film, music, or science fiction.

Or basically any TV show, fictional character or band. We are over the top but our love is strong and we are unapologetic.

Its kind of the Millennials gift to pop culture, really

We share celebrity crushes. We convert people, we slyly slide a book or tv series your way, with an evil grin on our faces – because we know what you are in for.

If you have been on sites like Tumblr or even pinterest and instagram to a certain degree. You’ll see phrases that people use that you think you understand, but the way they use them  is a little unusual and maybe  doesn’t make sense – even if the words do.

So I have picked some my favourites to explain. A Fangirl (and Fanboy) glossary if you will
