The Special About My Interests

“Will have obsessions but they are not as unusual as her male counterpart’s (less likely to be a ‘train-spotter’).” My elementary school special interest? Barbies! I set up intense sets for my dolls and would decorate and clothe them for hours, all the way through fifth grade. Nowadays, I usually fixate on fictional characters or theatrical music artists. Those characters or musicians become my special interests. Most of my life, people have thought that I’m just a really intense fangirl. But it’s not that; it’s more complex and inspiring. And there is something about dressing up like my favorites that feels just right! Maybe I’ve turned myself into the dolls of my childhood?
