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.

El's avatarThe Fangirl

El Gosiengfiao

Hello, it’s me. 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 said, 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 Contributing Fangirls

When I get too lazy to think of anything relevant to post about, I sometimes call on my wonderfully limited circle of fangirl friends to share their own raves/rants on the blog. I’ve also gone out of my way to bully them into writing their own short bios, which you can read below.

Isa avatarIsa Lacuna

Isa and El graduated with the same degree in Information Design, and were classmates in a lot of their majors. When she asked El to describe her, all she got was “talkative.” Which was then revised to “Isa can keep talking like a highway bus with no brakes.” Suffice to say, Isa has a lot to say about many things.

Isa’s interests are spawned mainly by her love of narratives, good, bad or ugly, so she meanders anywhere a good story can be had. Things that take up most of her time right now are her PS3, ogling strangers, and battling the melodrama of everyday life.

Kaye avatarKaye de Castro

In her perfect world, Kaye would be a chef by day, theater actress extraordinaire by night. In reality, Kaye is a former entertainment news writer who has shifted back to being the slave of money. She is currently working as a marketing copywriter to support her wanderlust and fund her chocolate truffle business. She and El are sisters-by-choice-not-by-blood, and according to their former officemates: “SoulmatesRelativesHousematesTwinsiesSingleEntity.”

According to her college friend, she is good at “putting [her] English major-trained way with words to good use” (translation: she’s very blunt and unapologetic). When she is not writing, Facebook stalking, or cooking / munching on delicious food, you will find her singing her lungs out to showtunes, practicing boxing and Muay Thai, or being a couch potato in front of her laptop while catching up on her TV series. Or you won’t find her – she’d be off to some place, and you’ll find out about her travels when she posts the photos once she gets back.

Khryss avatarKhryss Miguel

Khryss is a baker and shop owner who moonlights as a writer. The phrase “small, but terrible” aptly describes her – despite her petite stature, her friends have learned early on not to mess with her.

She graduated with a major in Philosophy. This gives her a broader perspective on things, but it can also be a double-edged sword because she tends to overanalyze everything she reads and watches. She used to work as a full-time web content writer, but gave up working in the corporate world to start her own business. She’s now managing her own café and diner, while also serving as its in-house baker.

For a long time, Khryss hated being called a “fangirl.” But what else would you call her when she obsesses over everything that interests her?
