My Woman crush

My woman crush is Felicia Day. She is geeky, beautiful, cool and an absolute bamf.

I first heard of her when I started watching Supernatural and she played Charlie Bradbury and I thought she was absolutely amazing acting as her. Her character was so relatable and it was so nice to see a ‘geeky’ girl that wasn’t questioned for liking Harry Potter or Larping. Also she was a lesbian and it was nice that it wasn’t used as her only personality which you see so many shows doing now.

Then I looked her up on IMDB to see what else she was in. She’d been in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I also saw she had her own website. That’s how I found out she had starred in a webseries called The guild which you can watch here on her official website and also see upcoming or past projects she’s done or is currently doing. The guild is about a group of people who are in a guild and end up all meeting up in real life and then end up in absolutely mad situations. It is so funny and I think all the actors in it are amazing and it is well worth the watch.

I also found out she was in Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog which has Neil Patrick Harris and Nathan Fillion starring in it as well.

She’s also written a memoir called ‘You’re never weird on the internet (almost)’ which is so funny and also really interesting. She talks a lot about growing up and her own experiences of playing in a guild. She also talks about creating the webseries ‘The guild’. You can buy the book here.

If you want to know pretty much everything about Felicia Day then check out her official website here.

Jared Padalecki isn’t perfect!

Jared Padalecki isn’t perfect…..and that’s why he has made such a big impact on myself and many others.

He has struggled with mental health. So many of us suffer from a type of mental health issue and even if we don’t we know someone close to us that does. So often people don’t address mental health and there’s a massive stigma about it. Instead of not letting the public know Jared shared not only his mental health issues he also started the ‘Always Keep Fighting’ campaign which also led to the ‘You Are Not Alone’ campaign and also a phrase which I have learnt to love ‘ Love yourself first’.

Not only has he admitted to his own mental health issues once, he has shared countless times his own struggles with his mental health. Every time he helps someone else. He used his mental health issues to not only raise mental health awareness but also to raise money for loads of people who need help.

I’ve been dealing with my mental health for 4 years now and when I first heard about the Always Keep Fighting campaign and found out one of my favourite characters in Supernatural was also dealing with his on struggles suddenly I didn’t feel so alone with all my problems. It also inspired me to start this blog so I could raise awareness about mental health and also hopefully make someone else feel less alone.

So Jared Padalecki may not be perfect but neither are we and that’s ok because we are still fighting everyday.

Wayward Sisters

I just found out Wayward sisters isn’t being picked up by CW and I’m so upset. I was really looking forward to watching it. I saw in an article that it wasn’t picked up because CW said wayward sisters wasn’t were it needed to be and Legacies beat it to be picked up instead.

The episode of Supernatural which was a pilot for Wayward sisters was so good, It reintroduced old characters in a new setting. We see Alex Jones working a full time job and trying to live a normal life away from hunting. We also see Claire Novak fighting monsters like we see Sam and Dean do every season but instead of the first 2 minutes seeing people die we actually see Claire save a little girl from werewolves, and later on in the episode she even saves Sam and Dean with the help of Kaia Nieves. It’s really nice to watch an episode with such strong women and role models. I would have really loved to see this become it’s own Tv Show.

There is currently a Change.org petition to save Wayward sisters which Kim Rhodes herself has posted on Twitter. The petition
