Urban Dictionary

This is a blog devoted to my fangirly ravings. Though I usually post about games, I’m interested in a lot of things, so the topics I cover tend to meander all over the place.

And yes, I know that going borderline crazy about anything is a potential health hazard, but sometimes you need a little madness to stay sane.

The Fangirl

el-photoHello, it’s me. My name is El, I’m a copywriter by day and gamer/bookworm by night. I’ve been described by my fiancé as “blunt as a baseball bat with bent nails”, and I have been known to fall victim to sudden fits of fangirl raving/raging. As I’ve mentioned above, I’m interested in a lot of things, including  video games, the realms of fantasy and fiction, art, folkore, and anime. Reading and mobile/PC gaming are my current major pastimes, but I’ve also been dabbling in Magic: The Gathering.

The Contributors

I sometimes call on my minions friends to share their own raves/rants on the blog. I initially bullied them into writing their own brief bios, but I decided to stop being lazy and wrote blurbs for them myself:

Isa Lacuna
Isa and I were college classmates, but her intellectual prowess has evolved into something I can barely hold a candle to. She's currently taking her Master's degree while teaching on the side. When I first asked her to contribute to this blog and asked her to write her own blurb, she mentioned that her interests "are spawned mainly by her love of narratives, good, bad or ugly, so she meanders anywhere a good story can be had."

Kaye de Castro
Kaye and I were officemates back in 2012-2014, and we've been close friends (read: sisters-by-choice-not-blood) ever since. She's currently working as a digital marketing writer while also taking on freelancing gigs, all for the sake of gathering funds to sate her constant wanderlust. She's beauty, brains, and brawn all rolled into one; she's a great singer and a fantastic cook, and she can probably kick your butt in boxing/Muay Thai.

Khryss Miguel
Khryss was also one of my officemates (along with Kaye) back in 2012-2013. She's pretty much the living, breathing definition of "small but terrible" - she's a spirited, hot-tempered, go-getting writer who loves traveling (to Japan in particular), reading, and collecting manga. She actually hates being called a "fangirl", but I'm hoping I can convert her to the dark side convince her that being a fangirl really isn't so bad.
