Obvious Fact: I am a terrible blogger.
I promised (and broke said promise) to post stuff about my tent city/BD2 LA premiere experience. I also broke my promise to blog about my “set stalking” experience. (If you follow me on Twitter, you’ll probably know what I’m referring to.) I wisely made no such promise to fill you in on my trip to Forks, cause I would have broken that too.
I still WANT to do all those things. Maybe I will at some point, maybe I won’t. Just don’t hold your breath.
There is one thing that HAS inspired me to actually log in to Blogger and purge my thoughts. GroupMe. For those who haven’t heard of it, it’s an app. Similar I guess to whatsapp, but I’ve never used that so I can’t say for sure. It’s pretty much a group chat app. The reason *I* like it is because it’s like Twitter but with only a few people in your feed so there is less to sift through, a 450 character limit instead of 140, and no @’s to take up valuable rant space.
My first time using GroupMe was when I came home from Tent City and was told I had to download it so a few of my “new friends” and I could keep in touch more easily than through Twitter or email (and texting, since all my American friends would have to pay international charges to text me and vice versa). The 4 of us immediately became addicted… some more than others (*points to self*). We “talk” everyday, throughout the day. We’ve become very close, talking about everything and nothing. Sometimes the “nothing” is downright dirty and always hilarious.
Recently, as I mentioned, I went to Forks, as did around 200 other Twilight fans, for the Forever in Forks / Stephenie Meyer Day events. One of the events put on by the FiF organizers was a fanfiction discussion group. There my fellow PityCity survivors & GroupMe girls met a few other totally amazing girls and we kind of completely accidentally pretty much took over the whole thing, going back and forth about all things fic-related for 2-3 hours. It was sort of like speed dating for fic-crack whores. And we totally fell in love.
Once I got home, and we were all tweeting each other with only a few words at a time (the @’s taking up so much room, like I said), I thought that it would be a great idea to make another group with ALL of us where we could keep that conversation going. Turns out, it was!
Of course, we don’t always talk only about fanfiction (*cough* nuzzlef$&k *cough*). Rather, we formed a group of 10 women who, although we may still be in our getting-to-know-you dating phase, support each other, lift each other up when one is down, talk through life decisions and problems, share victories, provide a safe place to vent (or bash… whatever), and mostly make each other laugh (a LOT!). Some of these ladies are old friends and some new, but I already know I wouldn’t want to go through life without any of them. I love you, my fich00rs! ❤
