Hello, my name is Meilani MacDonald, and I am a Fangirl.
There you go I have gone and said it, and I am not at all ashamed! I remember a time when being a fangirl meant you were a nerdy geek, and unlike now, back then being a nerdy geek was not cool.
One of my lifetime best friends, Sandie, is the person who turned me on to the show Big Bang Theory.
Sandie loves the show, and because of it knows what Dungeons & Dragons is. She recently told me,
“Now I know what you were doing back in high school when you went off to play Dungeons & Dragons! I had no idea what it was back then. Then I watched Big Bang Theory and thought ‘oh wow, a game where you totally make stuff up as you go along. That’s so Meilani. No wonder she loved it!’ So I just wanted to tell you that I finally get it, lol!”
I’m so glad that being a Fangirl or Fanboy is finally recognized for being the awesome coolness that it is!
