Today I’ve decided to write a post for the geek and nerd in some of us. The first thing I want to talk about is the word fandoms. If you’re a nerd like me, you belong in some sort of fandom (or many fandoms). To belong to a fandom means you have to be a hardcore fan, you love something so much you freak out. This freak out is common among girls, it’s called fangirling. The first time I heard fangirling was when this girl in my class was telling me how she fangirls about One Direction and started freaking out and lecturing me about each of the boys. I’m not a One Directioner so I didn’t see what the big hype was about and I thought fangirling was pretty stupid. Then it hit me! Shows such as Doctor Who and The Walking Dead knocked at my door. Books like The Hunger Games and The Fault in our Stars started breaking down my windows! I had come down with the fangirling disease . Once you become a fangirl you can never go back, you become part of a fandom and there is no escaping. I became a fangirl a long time ago and I belong to more fandoms than all of my fingers and toes put together. Some of the main fandoms I belong to are: The Walking Dead, Doctor Who, Reign, Hunger Games, Disney, and The Fault in our Stars.

The fandom I’m going to talk about today is Doctor Who. This is one of my main fandoms where I shriek at the mention of The Doctor. I’m pretty lucky to have my whovian friends because I would not be able to rant about each individual show to people who don’t watch the show. Today I started looking for when season 8 of Doctor Who is coming out, and sure enough it’s coming out August 23 on the BBC channel. I have no words to describe how excited I was when I read about how soon season 8 is. I’m excited to see how the 12th doctor (played by Peter Capaldi) is going to do. Clara remains the companion for this season. Also I heard of rumors about the Doctor’s worse enemy, the Master, making a comeback in this season.

Doctor Who is a really famous British show on the BBC Channel. If you like Doctor Who then you also might be interested in the show Sherlock and Supernatural. If you’re someone who loves these shows, then you belong to the superwholock fandom. Doctor Who is actually an alien. He mentions often in the show that he has two hearts. He is the last surviving Time Lord from Gallifrey. Gallifrey and all other time lords were destroyed in the Great Time war against the Daleks. Daleks are another one of the doctor’s main enemies, and their mission is to take over the universe and exterminate the doctor. Some other aliens that come up a lot are the Cyberman, Sontarans, and scariest of all the Weeping Angels. All of the shows the Weeping Angels come up in have me at the edge of my seat but they are indeed my favorite alien. The only way to make sure you don’t get caught by a Weeping Angel is by looking at it the whole time and no blinking. If you blink the angel takes its true form and attacks you. The way it kills you is by sending you back in time and has you live your life to death. To me that’s the best death someone could go through because you still get to live your full life, just in a different time period. If I was caught by a weeping angel, I would want to be sent back to the Renaissance time period because that sounded like a really fun and interesting time period. There were so many geniuses of music, art, and literature in this time period. On the way to my school we pass a cemetery that has a few angel statues. Every time my bus passes by the cemetery I turn to my friend and whisper don’t blink in her ear. My friend nearly had a heart attack the first few times I did it. 🙂

The Doctor often gathers companions to travel with him in the Tardis (phone booth) and to help him keep balance in all the universe. My favorite companions have been Amy and Rory so far because they go along with the doctor really well. Plus Amy and Rory were the cutest couple ever! I hear about how Disney gives girls an untrue picture of men, but Rory is just amazing! Pretty sure Doctor Who has Disney beat!

Above I have a bunch of Doctor Who merchandise that will bring out your inner geek when going back to school. The reason I chose these certain items is because they are stylish and great pieces that you can do a lot with. The key with these things is moderation! Wear one item at a time because wearing all Doctor Who items won’t look all that good. I made sure to include all sort of things that anybody needs when going back to school. There are clothes, jewelry, pens/pencils, cases, book bags, and water bottles. I will admit I saw these different items and died a little inside.

Now that you all know what the fangirling is and what fandoms are, I want you think of what geeky fandoms you may be involved in. Make sure to leave comments about any fandoms you may be in. I would love to find out what type of fandoms you are all involved in. Maybe I’m in them as well.

Tantalizing Twenties: Thoroughly Modern Millie Flapper Costume

As I have mentioned before in previous posts and in my about section, I’m in chorus. We do a lot of different concerts throughout the year and they are always super fun to do. The concert I enjoyed the most was our end of the year concert which we turned into an award show to honor seniors before they left. The award show we were trying to recreate in the auditorium was the Tony awards, but we named it the Rhoades awards after my chorus teacher. The Tony awards is an award show were they give awards based on Broadway performances. Each chorus class was given a different musical and it equaled a grand show over all. All of the chorus classes got assigned the song Anything Goes from the Broadway show Anything Goes as the opening and the ending. I’m in the beginners group and we were assigned to perform songs from the musical Thoroughly Modern Millie. For three months we practiced the song and the dance so we would look amazing on stage. The practices were so much fun and I enjoyed getting to dance and sing because I love doing both. The women’s chorus class were assigned Mama Mia, men’s chorus was assigned Newsies, mixed was assigned The Lion King, show choir was assigned American Idiot, and the capella group was assigned songs from West Side Story.

I thought show choir had the best performance because of how a lot of the members had great facial expressions, amazing voices, and lots of enthusiasm when they were singing. Plus I like a few Green Day songs that they sang so it was really entertaining to watch. All of the chorus groups did amazing and I enjoyed standing back stage and attending practices so I could sing along. Something you may not know about me is that I’m a huge musical girl. I enjoy being able to watch a movie and then all of a sudden hear a song with good lyrics and music to go with it. In my previous posts I mentioned how my favorite musical was Les Miserables, I was really upset when I found out that the year before I became a freshmen they did Les Mis and that I missed my opportunity in being able to perform in such an amazing musical. I dream of being able to sing One Day More along with other amazing voices, the layering of the voices would sound amazing.

To perform Thoroughly Modern Millie we were told to dress up as flappers because Thoroughly Modern Millie takes place in 1922. My mom and I spent a couple nights looking for flapper dresses that were either purple, silver, black, white, or blue. I found this black flapper dress on Amazon and it looked amazing! I may have had a flapper dress on but I still didn’t look like I came from the 1920’s. To get a more vintage look I added long pearls, long black gloves, and a very sparkly head band with lots of sparkle. The headpiece we did ourselves! The outfit looked great and it was comfortable to perform in. One of the things I was stressing about was having a wardrobe malfunction but everything turned out great. I did my best and I didn’t break any legs.

 

Teen Fashion: Cool and Warm Enough

Spring Break is now over and we went back to school Monday. I hated having to wake up early because I got used to sleeping in till noon. It was kind of funny walking into school Monday because I would look around and find people with really bad tans or people who got sun burned. Plus everyone was walking around as if they were the living dead because they were so tired. All this week we have been going full throttle in our classes  now that our EOCTs (End of Course Test) are coming up. The teachers have been so stressed out with trying to get everything covered which sucks for the students because these are the times we get double the homework. But summer is just around the corner and I’m super excited for the break but after a few days I start to miss my friends and my classmates.

This outfit was taken during spring break in Madison, GA.  The city was such a beautiful place and there were flowers everywhere which I loved. I will be talking about the city and a few things we did while we were there in one of my upcoming posts so you guys can get a feel for it. It was such a cool place and I definitely would recommend for people to take a nice trip there.

Spring break was kind of cold for us down here in Georgia so I had to wear a long sleeve shirt and pants to go to Madison. I wore a white tank top with a long black and gray striped cardigan over it. I also pared it with a white, black, and gray beaded necklace. I also added dark purple pants to the outfit to give it an unexpected color. The shoes matched the gray in the top of the shirt. The outfit was perfect to go walking in because when it was cold I had the cover up and once it got warmer I could just take off the cover up and just wear the tank top and the outfit would still look nice. Once I got home I had to do some serious washing because the pollen got all over my clothes, the shoes looked yellow instead of gray by the time we were done walking.
