If you’re in need of a good book, The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas needs to be in your hands. I’m not even half way though and I’m smitten.

This book is in response to all of the shootings of unarmed black people, the protests and the frustration with our judicial system. This challenges your thinking and puts so many things into perspective.

I wish I could get my parents to read this because the message is well articulated and delivered and it needs to be heard.

there are people who are rays of sunshine, cherry blossoms, vanilla candles and the colors of dusk.

there are people who are marble floors, roman temples, black ink and the smell of the earth after rain.

there are people who are star-gazing, holding your breath, little smiles, subtle touches and soft fabric.

who are you?

Fangirl Problem #18

When you get so distracted by your obsession or fandom that you physically cannot function. 

There are nights when you just lie in bed thinking about these characters and end up not sleeping because you are too busy coming up with imaginary scenarios.

Or you sit in places like classes and lecture rooms, scrolling through Tumblr and other sites looking for information and pictures on your fandom instead of actually focusing on what you need to focus on.

It becomes even more apparent that you are obsessed when you start doing those things at inappropriate times. 

  • Your grandmother’s birthday.
  • When your parents are lecturing you on something or other.
  • Funerals

Let’s just say that you know there’s a time and place for everything. But to you, the time is always fandom time.
