What am I afraid of?

I have many fears and some of them are quite frankly very silly, but something that I cannot help. My biggest fear is dying. I suffer a severe case of fear of death. It is not as bad as it was when I was younger. Back then I could be sitting around just minding my own business and all of a sudden pictures would start popping up in my head and they were not pleasant at all. It would typically be pictures of myself dying in various different ways and it terrified me. It still does. Today I don’t get those pictures in my head as much anymore, but it does happen.

Another fear of mine is butterflies. It is probably one of my more silly fears, but it is a fear nonetheless. While I think that butterflies are beautiful creatures, I still cannot stand them and as silly as it sounds; if one comes anywhere near me I flip out and either run away or start walking in circles until it flies away.

What are you afraid of?

My Proudest Moment

I gotta admit that I have had a lot of trouble with this post and I have thought long and hard about what my proudest moment is and then it hit me.

The proudest moment of my life was 12 years ago when my youngest sister was born. The first time I held her in my arms is my proudest moment and I honestly do not really know why.

She was the smallest, most adorable little human being I have ever seen and I was so afraid that I would break her. She was born 6 weeks premature and the doctors said that she would most likely have a lot of health issues as she grew up.
But now 12 years later, she is the strongest and the most active 12-year-old I know.

What is your proudest moment?

My Dream Job

I am sure that we have all gone through this at one point or another at school. The teacher asks the kids what they would like to be when they grow up and it was no different for me. Back then I was asked that very same question too and at the time, there was quite a few things that I was sure I wanted to be. I wanted to become a teacher, so that I could help other kids through school, because I was struggling so much with trying to fit in and bullying and I wanted to become a teacher so that I could make a difference for someone else.

I also wanted to be a hairdresser. I have always loved to style hair, even though I am really no good at it, but that is after all why you go to beauty school. To learn. While we are on that topic, I also wanted to be a makeup artist. I still sort of do, but it is no longer my dream job.

I think that in the end, we all go through so many stages in life and our dreams will change along the way as well.

As for me. I am now almost 24 and I do not have one dream job. I have around 3. Today, my biggest dream is to become a singer, an actress or an author. Those are dreams that more than likely will not come true, but in the end. My biggest dream is to know that when I get old and I die, I will have set my mark on the world. I want to know that I lived my life to the fullest and that I, in one way or another took part in changing our world for the better.

What is YOUR dream job?

My Favorite Quote

“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.” – Albus Dumbledore

I would be lying if I said that I only have one favorite quote, because I do not. I have at least a million, but the one that always returns to me is this one.

As a person who is stumbling and falling my way through life and dealing with depression, I sometimes find it very difficult to get back up, smile and continue walking. That is when this quote pops up in my head. It reminds me, that even when things are looking the worst and it feels hopeless, happiness is always within reach. I just have to turn on the light and keep walking, which is what I always do.

I have fought some very tough battles, but I am still standing tall and now I am so close to graduating what would probably be college overseas, which is something I have always wanted to do and it is quotes like this one that has helped me through the hard times.
So I think that this is also a good time to say: Thank you J.K. Rowling!
Without your incredible writing, Dumbledore would not exist and this quote would never have made its way into my life.

Do you have a favorite quote? Why is it your favorite quote?
Let me know!

My Blog Name

When I first started my blog I was not entirely sure what I wanted it to be about. I did not want to make yet another fashion blog, because there are so many of them and because I know absolutely nothing about fashion. I just wear whatever I find comfortable. I spent a long time thinking about what I wanted with this blog and first step was of course, to find a name for it. Something catchy but at the same time something that felt somewhat personal. I hope you get what I mean by that, because I find it difficult to express it.

After a long time I came up with “My Fangirl Universe” and it felt right. It felt like something that was me, but also something that people might actually remember. I decided that I wanted my blog to be about me. I wanted it to be personal. Kind of like a public diary if you will and since I am in quite a few fandoms, I found the name appropriate and I still do today.

I’m just another girl trying to get through life and whatever it throws at me and I thought it would be interesting to share my thoughts and experiences with the world. This blog may change, but who knows? For now I quite enjoy doing this.

It may seem like a weird way to come up with a name, but that is just my way.
How did you come up with the name for your blog? What was the thought process behind it? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.

Love
Jen
