26 Reasons Why Being A Stan Is Actually A Really Tough Job
It's been lovely but I have to scream now.
You're constantly broke because not only do you have to buy concert tickets...
Of course, you need to buy at least two copies of every album...
...and also every single, every acoustic re-release, every live recording, and every anniversary edition.
Each time your fave does something, you need to devote AT LEAST an hour to discussing it.
New candids are always a cause for a meltdown.
And if your fave is even slightly problematic, you know your life will never be easy again.
If you live anywhere other than the USA, livestreams are both your best friend, and your worst enemy.
And you constantly need to defend your fave, which often means dragging other stans on Twitter.
Though when fandoms you're not a part of start fighting, you love to sit back and enjoy the drama.
You're constantly getting shit from people who think it's trendy to hate on mainstream music.
Particularly if you're a grown-ass adult with a fondness for boybands.
But you've made countless friends on the internet who share your stan feels.
Which is great and all, except usually they live hundreds of miles away and you rarely get to see them.
Buying tickets online is like being in the Hunger Games.
You wish and pray to one day meet your fave, though you know if you do, you'll probably end up with a photo like this.
Your phone is filled up with photos of your fave, to the point where you have to delete pics of your friends and family to make room for a photo of their hand.
The wait between albums is horrible, to the point where you're actually delusional.
And whenever your fave does something, it simultaneously kills you and brings you back to life.
