Reacting to My First Post

On June 28th, 2010, I wrote my first post for Kim the FanGirl. It was an introduction of sorts, an initial explanation of what I hoped Kim the FanGirl would become. I didn’t talk about myself or who I was. I didn’t explain why started the blog in the first place. I just wanted to…

Puzzled

I started a puzzle a few weeks ago. I thought it would be fun, considering I haven’t purchased a puzzle since 1997. It was a true-to-size poster for the film Titanic. Not only that, but it came with three additional puzzles, as well. They were screen-caps from the movie. Yes, if you need to ask,…

Mr. Music

I was scrolling through Netflix – you know, as you do – when I saw that John Mulaney had a new comedy special. I’ve become a pretty dedicated Mulaney fan within the past year, so I decided to check it out. Admittedly, I knew ahead of time that this was a different kind of special….

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…

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…

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?…

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….

Flo & Joan

Musical comedy is, to me, extremely underrated. I don’t understand how you can dislike it. Hello! It combines two of the very best things on this planet earth: music and hilarious, long-form humor. They’re musical jokes. It’s sensational! Recently, as I was scrolling through the endless depths of a certain streaming service, I discovered the…

I’m Not the Same Person I Used to Be

I was looking through my email the other day when I happened to stumble upon a bizarrely titled one from 2005. It was a friendship quiz my friend from High School had sent me. Looking at my answers to these fifty-two stereotypical, teenage questions had left me seriously confused. This girl liked cookie-dough ice cream…

Hello, It’s Me Again

I’ve never been very good at keeping New Year’s resolutions, especially ones that concern this blog. For the past few years or so, about three months before the new year begins, I say to myself, “Next year, I’m going to write more.” I even go so far as to set fairly realistic expectations for myself….

BLOGAVERSARY!!! #8

Dear Followers and Friends, I just want to say THANK YOU. THANK YOU for reading, liking, sharing, subscribing, and commenting. THANK YOU for all of the love and support you have given me over the past eight years. It truly means the world to me. You are the best readers a fangirl could ask for….

The Decline of FanFiction

I was in high school when I first learned about fanfiction. My friend had showed me a six page story she’d written about *NSYNC and tried to explain the concept of writing original stories about celebrities and fictional characters to me. I honestly didn’t get it. Why write about well-known faces when you could create…
