Feminerd: On Being a Woman in a Hardware Store

So, Fangirls, I’m completely overhauling my room. It’s look the same since I arrived there when I was born, and it’s safe to say that it doesn’t suit me any more, and never really did. Changing my room requires a lot of trips to the hardware store. I love hardware stores, I always have, what I don’t like however, is the experiences I have with people there.

Madoka Magica: Not a Good Magical Girl Anime

Mahou-Shoujo-Madoka-Magica-So, recently I sat down and breezed through Madoka Magica on Netflix. It only took me about a day or so and most a bag of popcorn, but I watched all 12 episodes. I had heard a lot about it but never really knew anything about it other than the fact that it featured young girls in lolita-like dresses and that m friend once spent an unreasonable amount of money for a small figure of the main character at the last ConnectiCon.Read More »
