Are you a fangirl? - Do you survive boring classes or meetings by imagining your favorite TV couple making out? - Have you posted a lengthy diatribe online defending a fictional character? - Have you gotten carsick from reading fan fiction on your smartphone? - Has Netflix presented you with the oAre you still watching'o button at least once? If you answered yes, you are a fangirl. (But you already knew that!) Fangirling is more than a hobby; it's a way of life for an enormous community. As a fangirl, you are passionate, intelligent, and creative. But sometimes focusing on the fictional can keep you from putting those qualities to use in your everyday life. Rather than using your pop culture passions to avoid your real-life problems, you can tackle issues like stress, anxiety, and low self-esteem by turning fan life into inspiration. If you enjoy flailing over badass fictional ladies or speculating over plot points but would like to carve more space for the narrative of your own life, this is the book for you. The Fangirl Life is a witty guide to putting your passions to use in your offline life, whether it's learning how writing fan fiction can be a launching point for greater career endeavors, or how to avoid the myths that fictional romance perpetuates. Start translating those fictional obsessions into some bold personal moves and let The Fangirl Life help you become your own ultimate fangirl.

not for the casual fangirl. I didn't relate to any of it.
