Otaku Mom: Low-key Fangirling

It’s been a while since I’ve fangirled on anything. It also doesn’t help that these days, I feel more like a Mom than a “girl.”

Recently, I find myself low-key fan girling a retired J actor. I won’t mention his name as it would bring up the circumstances regarding his departure from the entertainment industry. I think I’ve given enough clues for you to Google it yourself. That is, if you don’t already know who it is.

Anyway, I recently came upon him on Instagram by chance. By chance. Imagine that? I thought twice whether to follow him or not. I’ve unfollowed all the celebrities in my list. I found out that knowing how the people I admire behave in their day-to-day lives (regardless if staged for social media or not) is rather disconcerting. I would rather keep the mystery. But…

I decided to follow him. And it was probably because he doesn’t see himself as a celebrity anymore, but his posts and his stories are so… freeing.

I find myself smiling at his spring outings, his adventures with friends, all the good food he eats. It’s just so nice to see him happy and being himself. As a true fangirl, isn’t it just right to wish that he is able to enjoy life to the fullest with no regrets? That is what he seems to be doing right now and I couldn’t ask for more.
