Oh god...this is a lot of pressure. What to say what to say. Well I guess I should start off with Hi, I'm staymagical. Phew! Ok got that out of the way. Oh. More? Do I have to? Oh fine.

A few years ago I graduated from college majoring in fashion/costume design. And now I'm living/working the dream...as a costume designer in the film industry! Its a blast being on set and bringing visions to life. The hours are long but exciting and its just so much fun. Truly. Though this means that my updates can sometimes be spotty as I work on projects and have very little time for writing. So I apologize in advance for that. Annnnyyyyywayyyyy onward...

I normally have a flavor of the month/year/etc obsession, which basically means that they change suddenly and without warning. Just thought I would let you all know. As of late I have been utterly and completely obsessed with anything and everything having to do with the BBC show, Merlin. Its starting to drive my roommate up the wall I think. Ehhhh whatever, I can't exactly turn it off (not that I want to). Now normally these obsessions dim down when another comes to take its place. I doubt that will happen with Merlin. That show is just so awesome and beautiful and bromancy that I don't think I can ever push it to the side. I have fallen off the deep end that is Merlin obsession. So just be prepared for lots of Merlin...forever.

Now I also am a part of many other fandoms. I mean it. Many. Many. Others. So don't ask me to list them all. It would take WAY too long and you would get bored with a long list. You have been warned.

Well I really don't know what else to tell you all. I'm not very good at these sort of things. Who am I kidding, I'm not good at a lot of things. Including writing so don't expect some great works of literature here. It won't happen and I'll just end up disappointing you. So I guess I apologize in advance for that as well. I just have ideas in my head and need to get them out or else my brain might explode.

So yeah enjoy, or don't, but tell me either way. Tell me how much I suck and how I could improve, or you know, whatever. Reviews are most appreciated and messages are always welcome! So are oreo milkshakes. Yes, those are most welcome. Send those. Yes. Do it.

Anyway, thanks for reading. Have fun, be safe, and don't die.
