5 Fandom Friday: Nerdiest Things I’ve Done

After missing last week, here is yet another 5 Fandom Friday post! :) This Friday’s topic for the linkup was “5 Nerdiest Things You’ve Ever Done”. You can find more info on the linkup from The Nerdy Girlie or SuperSpaceChick. So, without further ado, here are my top 5 moments of being a complete nerd.

5fandomfriday

1. Waiting in line for way too many hours (from an outsider’s point of view) to get my hands on a Harry Potter book or waiting to see some of the actors when they’ve visited Finland.

2. Dragging my mom around all the Harry Potter and Doctor Who related places in London. I have to give props to her for going along with it :)

3. Waiting for a whole night at a movie theater to get tickets to a Hobbit movie. So no, I didn’t wait to see the movie, I just waited to get the tickets.

4. Reading all my different fandom books (Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, etc.) a million times.

5. Also, watching all my shows (Buffy, Supernatural etc.) a million times.

I’m sure there are plenty more moments but these were all I could think of right now.

5 Fandom Friday: Favorite Fictional Moms

5 Fandom Friday is back! This week’s 5 Fandom Friday linkup topic was “favorite fictional moms”. I have lots of those because I love mom characters but I tried to narrow it down to just five.

5fandomfriday

1. Molly Weasley

This was such an easy pick. I absolutely adore Molly’s character. She is such a warm and loving person and even took Harry under her wing without even thinking about it twice. Also, she completely kicked ass in the Battle of Hogwarts!

2. Piper Halliwell

One of my favorite characters from one of my favorite shows. Piper was always my favorite of the three Halliwell sisters and I knew that she would make a great mom because she was already in the beginning a very down to earth, warm person. And she held the sisters together even when Phoebe and Prue didn’t get along.

3. Joyce Summers

Joyce was a great mom to Buffy in BtVS and I always felt that considering what a handful she had for a daughter, she took it in strides. Can’t be easy raising a vampire slayer! She became one of my favorites over the course of the show and her death was really tragic.

4. Snow White/Mary Margaret

Snow missed Emma’s childhood but she is doing everything she can to make up for it now. She clearly is a devoted mom and wife and she loves Emma even though it took her a long time to get to know her.

5. Emma Swan & Regina Mills

I couldn’t pick between Emma and Regina because they’re both great moms for Henry. Emma wasn’t there for Henry when he was smaller but like her mom Snow, she has been making up for the lost time. Now she is a great mom who does everything to protect her kid. And Regina: even though she was the Evil Queen, she has turned a new leaf and is trying to be a good person – including a good mom. Of course, she was always a good mom because she always tried to protect Henry. In the beginning, it was her only redeeming characteristic, but now she’s a great character – complex and fascinating!

Haul Post: Massive Spring/Summer Haul

I don’t often do haul posts but I just wanted to share a few cute items I got for myself for the spring and, of course, for the summer!

fashion haul

As part of my haul, I bought these clothes from Sheinside:

1. Blue kimono – I haven’t owned a kimono before but I gave in to the recent kimono frenzy and got this one. I’m hoping it’ll protect me from too much sun during the summer (I get very bad sun rash and I burn easily).

2. The loveliest long summer dress – I adore these colors and it’ll be perfect for my trips to Istanbul and Barcelona! (I don’t own many long dresses so this is a welcome addition to my wardrobe.)

3. Crop top – I hate revealing my stomach but this one was on sale and I thought it looked cute (didn’t hurt that Karen Gillan has a similar one) so I thought maybe it’d inspire me to get into better shape.

The books I got from Amazon:

1. Attachments by Rainbow Rowell – I love Rowell’s books that this has been on my list of books to read for quite some time now.

2. True Whit – I got this for like a penny, so I thought I’d get it. Hills and The City are my guilty pleasures. Shh!!

Finally:

1. A fanny pack I got from New Look – it’s a cute festival bag and I’d love to be able to go out to festivals (Sonar in Barcelona and maybe Flow here in Helsinki) during the summer without a big tote I have lug around everywhere.

2. A ticket to see Wooden Wisdom – ELIJAH WOOD! Do I even need to say more? He’s DJing in Helsinki at club Kaiku (one of the three clubs I ever go to) in August and I had to get a ticket.
