Okay, right. I'm supposed to be writing an article. Or is this a column? I dunno. Whatever. I'm writing words for you, Internet, read them and love them and validate my as of yet seemingly poor decision to double major in English and Mass Communications.

(See! Insomnia and obsessive fangirling do pay off once in a while!) So here's what happened:
