I'm A College Fangirl And Proud

Fandoms, fandoms and more fandoms!

I'm A College Fangirl And Proud
Carley Sebren

Now, this probably comes as no surprise for most people who know me, but I am indeed a huge fangirl! From TV shows, movies and books there is always a new world to discover and for me to become a part of. From Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Disney, Star Wars, the 100, Marvel, etc.

Some people may find my obsession and geeky nature unattractive and bizarre, but I have no shame in being the way I am!

For instance, my bedroom in my apartment is full of movie/play posters, books on every shelf of my bookcase, t-shirts in my closet and nerd merchandise scattered throughout. My favorite merchandise would have to be the numerous t-shirts that showcase my love for my fandoms. Simply because these t-shirts allow me to express myself and show others that I am not afraid to love a fandom as much as I do.

If it's not buying a new t-shirt at the store you can usually find me adding a new Popfigure to my growing collection! As of right now I currently have thirty-three figurines, ranging from characters from my favorite television series to my favorite movies. Having these figures all around my room makes me extremely happy. Sometimes when I have a bad day I go and sit in front of my bookshelf and admire all the collectibles I have so far and it makes me feel better.

I know you might be thinking, thirty-three collectible figures, that's crazy! For me having them is not crazy. There is a spark that ignites in me from every story I read, every movie/ tv show I watch and the characters within them that I fall in love with and build a connection with.

There is so much that I learn from all of my fandoms. Wisdom and life lessons that help form me into the person I am today.

That is why I was not afraid to get the words "Avengers Assemble" on my body for the rest of my life. Those two words and the meaning and powerful message that they uphold is what makes me feel special and makes me believe that anything is possible in this life.

No matter where I am in life and what I am going through, having these fandoms and other worlds to escape to is such a reassurance to me. I am not ashamed of my love for these fandoms and for living my life the way I do!

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
