Hair

What’s the deal with haircuts? Yes, this question may sound like a Jerry Seinfeld bit from the late eighties, but that seems like the best way to phrase it. Going to the salon is a weird experience, right? We act like it’s just as uncomfortable as going to the dentist, but when we get in…

Currently Reading: The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

I’ve been wanting to read The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo for some time now. I’ve heard so many great things about it. There are just some books you know you’re going to like even before you read them. I’ve just finished chapter one and I’m thoroughly intrigued. A story about fame, fortune, and forbidden love?…

One Short Day

If I could spend one day with any fictional character . . . As I rubbed the sleep from my eyes, I noticed I wasn’t alone and I definitely wasn’t in my small, sparse bedroom. Too much sun filtered in through the towering windows and there was a thick grove of sage-green trees outside them….

Milk & Cookies

I like to bake. I don’t think I’ve ever told you that. It’s not something I do often, because I don’t think I’m very good at it. I’m a perfectionist and baking tends to bring out the worst in me. I want everything to be just right. If it doesn’t turn out the way I…

Always Lonely & I Could Fall In Love…

She was fashioned by darkness, cruel and twisted, a patchwork of poetry and song.  She walks among hateful demons and sorrowful, weeping ghosts, leaving no footprints in the spongy moss. Nurtured by warmth, she is bathed in stardust and starlight, a chaotic creation of mother earth. She lives atop a mighty tree, but crawls and…

Do They Know It? 

There is a channel on YouTube called REACT, where teenagers and college students are quizzed on different artists, genres, and songs from various decades. I don’t think it’s meant to make people of a certain age feel old, but when they can’t recognize Ace of Base or Lisa Loeb, you can’t help but feel like…

401

I wrote my four-hundredth post yesterday and I didn’t even realize it. I’ve been so focused on planning for the future, the milestone flew right past me. So, today, let’s celebrate four hundred and one! See you tomorrow! For more Kim the FanGirl follow the blog on Twitter @kimthefangirl and on Facebook

Seven Albums That Define Me

Have you seen those outlandish scenarios that have been plaguing Twitter recently? They’re the ones that give you a far-fetched situation and you have to choose what to do, what to say, or how to react. Have you seen the ones that put you in improbable places then ask you a moderately difficult question like,…

One Minute to Midnight

What do you do when you’re lost and you’re stuck staring at a blank page? How do you find inspiration? What do you do when there’s one minute to midnight and you have nothing left to give? Do you admit defeat? Or do you sing Hunger at the top of your lungs? Do you stall,…

The Batman

Happy Valentine’s Day, my lovelies! I love you so much I got you a gift, a little something special. You may have already seen it. You may have already taken a peek at it, but I think it’s worth repeating. It is quite astonishing, after all. When I first saw the short teaser I thought,…

Think Lovely Thoughts

I’ve been trying to take better care of my mental health lately. After years of suffering from depression and anxiety, I’ve finally had enough. Of course, some days are better than others; every day is different. I can’t control what happens, but I can control how I react to it. Easing my anxiety with breathing…
