Once Upon a Time, I Was a Poet

I was looking through my writing folder, searching for a few “works in progress,” when I randomly decided to click on the folder that said Poetry. I really wasn’t sure what I’d find. As I scrolled down the list, I noticed that the dates on the folders were more than a few years old. It…

Now Playing: Sara Bareilles – ‘Armor”

Sometimes it feels like no matter how hard we try as women, no matter how hard we fight, we’re still in the same place as we started. It can feel like we’ve made no progress at all. They tell us we’re not smart enough, pretty enough, or talented enough. They make us feel like we’re…

Everything’s Gonna Be Okay

As you know, it’s rare for me to tell you about a new show right away. I’m always late to the party, usually discovering shows when they’re in the second or sixth season. Sadly, I’m not very good at watching a show as soon as it comes out. I’m a bit of a procrastinator that…

In the Woods

Flower crowns and flowy gowns. Enchanted forests where witches prowl and growl. Birds trapped in cages and love songs sung from broken rib-cages. This is where I choose to spend my time, with a songstress made of heartbreak and rhyme. Honestly, did you really think I could go this long without talking about Florence Welch?…

CUPS

It’s common among nerds and fangirls alike to have a coveted collection. In fact, it’s common for most people to purchase and maintain a collection of some sort. Some collect plates or action figures. Others collect ticket stubs or celebrity signatures. Whether it be of sentiment or value, once we begin to acquire multiples of…

Discover: Justin Scarred

The great thing about YouTube is that there are so many channels and videos to watch. There is, literally, something for everybody. There’s tasty recipes and music videos, yoga gurus and silly dog videos. You’ll even see celebrities answering questions and eating exceedingly spicy chicken wings for your amusement and pleasure. If you like something…

I ❤️ Books

Looking back on my teenage years, I can’t remember having a strong relationship with books. Sure, I liked to read, but I rarely read for fun. Mostly, I read what stories and books my school required me to. Shakespeare was a constant presence during that time, but the classics never appealed that much to me,…

The Judge is Justified

Warning, if you haven’t watched last week’s episode of The Good Place, turn back now. To those of you that have watched it, come on in and sit down. Get comfy. I need to ask you a question. Did you, by chance, happen to hear a deafening scream recently? Maybe an uncontrollable shriek of joy?…

Now Playing: Dua Lipa – “Don’t Start Now”

Yes! Finally, disco for the modern era. Grab your bell-bottoms and platform shoes, we’re going dancing. I love this song, because I always imagine myself singing it in some big-budget movie musical. It would fit perfectly, don’t you think? See you tomorrow! For more Kim the FanGirl follow the blog on Twitter @kimthefangirl and on…

Dreaming of You

Dreams are amazing, aren’t they? After a long day, all we have to do is put our head on our pillow, close our eyes, and then this incredibly weird and wonderful film plays in our head. Sure, sometimes dreams can be rather dull or leave you anxious, but those times are few and far between….

Movie Review: Little Women

We all have a favorite film adaptation of Little Women. Whether it be Hepburn, Allyson, or Ryder, it’s a film we all know. It’s a film we’ve all grown up with. We’ve memorized every scene, every line of dialogue. We know the film backwards and forwards. We know it by heart. Although each incarnation is…

Miranda

Well hello to you and thank you for joining. While we were on the subject of British comedians, I figured we could grab a cuppa and talk about my very favorite one. Who is it, Kim? Well, thank you for asking. It’s Miranda Hart. Do you know Miranda? I first discovered her sitcom, Miranda, by…
