The 30 year-old Fangirl

Okay, so I'm not 30 yet, but I'll turn 29 before the end of the year and will be one step closer to the dreaded 3-0.

I've always been a fangirl. When I got caught up over something or someone, I'd dedicate myself completely, collect memorabilia - the works! Back four years ago in England, I lived with my parents still and for the most part my money was my own. I had the time and means to fangirl to my heart's content.

Then I moved here to Australia, got engaged, had to spend all my earnings on bills and all my free time of the past seemed to get eaten up in chores and work. I have had fangirl moments since then, most notably over True Blood. I've bought a few items for that fandom, but nothing like I would have done four or five years ago.

Living at home, my bedroom wall would be devoted to all the people and things I was mad about. A little shrine to actors, shows, films etc. With a fiance and a shared bedroom though, it is not so easy. My very understanding fiance did say the other day that I can put some pictures up and maybe I will stick one on my bookcase, but somehow it's not the same when someone else inhabits that space with me.

Perhaps you are wondering what has prompted this sudden outpouring? Well, I recently got the box set of seasons 1-5 of Supernatural. I had only seen odd episodes before and wanted to watch it all. Now I am 'in love'... not with Sam or Dean... with Castiel. Sometimes my fangirling starts with a character then spreads to the actor himself. In this case though, while I like Misha Collins, the obsession is solely about the character.

So, I decided to share a little pic with you today to satisfy my fangirl cravings. I give you... Castiel.


  1. A 20-year-old Castiel Fangirl right here.

    I've had similar problems fangirling wise. I get super obsessed with actors, and I need to collect every single movie they have ever been in. Back when I lived with my parents that was all easy and wonderful, but now that I have my own flat and bills, I feel like I can't fulfill my fangirling needs!

  2. Thank you for sharing, Sikka. I'm glad I'm not the only one. Happy to know a fellow Castiel fan too.
