My Awkward Obsessions

Heyo!! Agh, who am I, Rico? (Anyone who gets that reference, you get a gold star.) So today, I was thinking about my weirdness. Which I have quite a lot of. And a big part of my weirdness is built off of my obsessions. Without further ado (who says ado? seriously? oh wait….), let us begin:

Name Meanings

I kid you not, I am somewhat slightly a little bit obsessed with name meanings. Not just that, I’m also fascinated with it’s origin, where it’s used, and just kind of everything. Like, recently, I discovered this new website which is everything I have ever dreamed of it is wow. For me. Because I’m weird. So yeah. Whoops. The thing is, if I think your name is cool, I will google it. Not- not that I have done that. Of course. Obviously. Pfffft. I mean. What kind of a weirdo would do that? …moving on.


Okay, so  you may think that this isn’t really weird, and many people love finding inspirational quotes and stuff. Problem is, the quotes I find or try to find aren’t so much inspirational as slightly scary? And then people worry about my twisted mind? But also, I fall in love with so many lines from books? Like, for example, in Crooked Kingdom, knives drawn, pistols blazing. Because that’s what we do. ” – Leigh Bardugo (Kaz)


Charries are the actual best thing. Don’t tell me it’s just me that spends more time analyzing the charries than it took to read the actual book?? Speaking of which, I’m immensely sad, because today, I just finished Crooked Kingdom (and by just, I mean yesterday), and I’m currently in mourning. I literally reread this one part 4 times and kind of teared up (i was crying on the inside…) in class. Which is bad. Because in school, I’m the cool kid (lol nope). But, those who have read it, I assume you know the part of which I’m speaking of…

Just kind of Netflix in general…

Netflix is just so great. Just. Yup. Okay, so currently, I’m in the midst of two shows and in one of them, season three hasn’t come out yet and I’ve been waiting forever and ever and ever. And the other one has like 45  minute episodes and like 7 seasons. And then there’s moreeeee. AGH. I’m on like the 3 episode of season two? It’s been a long journey.

The Interweb

( Yes, I meant to say ‘interweb’). So, I don’t think that you understand internet obsession until you’ve met me… I’m slightly obsessed with Google –  the doodles, etc. I would totally work for Google. Maybe. I mean. It depends on how much work is involved, really… I’m also quite a big fan of the various websites for like everything I enjoy. Exhibit A: Pottermore. IT’S A PLACE WHERE I CAN BE HAPPY AND MYSELF AND A RAVENCLAW AND A THUNDERBIRD AND HAVE LIKE THE BESTEST WAND (it has unicorn hair and it’s silver lime wood and it’s like 10 1/2 inches and it has a slightly yielding flexibility and no i did not memorize all of that). Yeah. Yup. Uh huh. NEXT!!

Grammar (and just kind of writing stuff in general)

So, you know that really annoying friend who you text ever so excitedly, eager to tell them about some random thing and you accidentally ( is that a word??) say ‘your’, and so instead of focusing on what your (see what I did there??) (no sorry I feel bad) (*you’re) telling them, they respond just saying ‘*you’re’? ( I wish I could say that was the longest sentence I’ve ever written, but honestly, it’s not even close) Yeah, that’s me. ‘Nuf said.

LOTR ( and other assorted fandoms)

It is no uncommon fact that fandoms are the most common thing to be obsessed with. The real question is, how many are too much?? So, I am now going to assemble a list, and go on into a rant about LOTR, because that is the main focus of this little section bit. Keep in mind, in this list  is not every book/movie series I am a fan of. These are books/movies that I am a genuine expert (or aspiring expert) (or kind of expert) (you know what, every fandom with a capital ‘E’, I consider myself an expert in, no questions asked. I will elaborate as I go. Because that’s how I do things).

  • PERCY JACKSON – E (this includes Greek mythology. I’m also quite good  at Indian, Roman, and Egyptian)
  • THE HUNGER GAMES (I am quite a big fan, but I’m not as good at a bit of Hunger Games trivia as at, say, Harry Potter. And I’m pretty good at Hunger Games trivia) (Fandoms are the one thing I will take pride in) (which could lead me into a rant about how society has conditioned people to deny compliments, etc. )
  • none really come to mind…
  • LOTR

Okay, explanation time!! Let us begin. So, LOTR, I know a lot about the movies, like the filming, cast, etc. and I’m pretty good at the story, but I’m still reading the books, so…


The reason that this isn’t in the fandoms section is because it is special and deserves it’s own section. See, ships are the most important thing in popular series. Example: Team Gale vs Team Peeta. Which one are you? And am I the only one who is mildly peeved that Luna didn’t end up with Neville? And when you discuss a really good book with your friends, don’t you discuss the ships first?? Or is that just me and now I am an internet outcast? I rest my case. Maybe.


Okay, so this list has gone on for a somewhat long-ish time, but I’ve enjoyed writing it, and so maybe I’ll write another one? Maybe? I don’t know, I’m sure I have more. So. Tell me if you relate so I don’t feel lonelyyyy. Please and thank you. Oh and also!! Did you like this? Genuinely? Because I feel like out of all my posts so far, this was one of my favorites!! Is that bad? Anyways, I think it might be because I spent the most time on this post? Okay, so, yeah, that’s it. 🙂

    • YES I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO DID THAT YAY!! And I started it… And then I didn’t finish it… FEEL FREE TO YELL AT ME NOW… I’m probably going to come back to it once I finish Gilmore Girls, because that is very time consuming…
