I started fangirling from a young age. From my obsession with Britney Spears and NSYNC to my current obsessions with Harry Potter and Supernatural, I guess you can say that I'm a fangirl at heart. I've always said I have an obsessive personality, and that's not isolated to just one thing. It can be music, movies, books, food, people, anything. I go through phases of loving certain things, and while my obsession with die down a little, the full love will still be there.
So I talk about fangirling because I used to be a huge High School Musical fangirl. I watched the premiere of the movie on Disney Channel, I watched the third movie in theaters, and I was even in the musical production of it at my school. I was one of the skater girls. See proof:
My fangirling was so hardcore that I decided to make a YouTube channel so I could mix clips from different parts of the movies and make my own little "ship" videos. Don't get me wrong, I love me some Gabriella, but from the videos I found on my old channel, it looks like I'm also a Troypay "shipper."

I used to enter the videos that I made into YouTube contests, and I actually won one of them! More on that later. I'm sad to say that I don't know the login to this YouTube channel, so it's just sitting there getting views and comments, and I can't respond.
My YouTube channel (with videos from six years ago, mind you) wasn't just purely made up of High School Musical videos. I also made videos of other people too. Check out these gems:
Mary-Kate and Ashley
My idols. I seriously love these girls. Mary-Kate has always been my favorite because she's was the spunky one who was more sporty, and while I wasn't sporty at all, I related more to her than to Ashley who was really girly. This video was made to the "Suffragette City" cover that was in the New York Minute movie. Check out the rainbow effect starting at 1:36. I thought I was so cool.
Lizzie and Gordo from Lizzie McGuire
This is another couple that I wanted to get together. This video is pretty much dedicated to them being perfect for each other. It's set to "I'd Lie" by Taylor Swift, which is one her "unreleased" songs.

I was a huge Miley Cyrus fan back in the day. I feel like I was a little older than the Hannah Montana fan base, but that didn't matter to me. I loved HM, and my sister and I went to go see Hannah and Miley in concert "together."

THE AWARD WINNER: Vanessa Hudgens
As I mentioned earlier, one of my videos was a contest winner, and this is the one. I entered this video in a contest, and it won first place. What?! It's just a bunch of clips of Vanessa Hudgens set to the Lillix version of "What I Like About You."
I know what you're thinking. 'Tiffany, why would you ever stop making YouTube videos like these?!" Guys, I just felt like it was time to move on, so I did. (Embarrassing side note: I also made a YouTube "series" that was about the characters from High School Musical in college. I had commentary and everything, but I thought it was embarrassing, so I took it down. Why I didn't take down the rest of these videos will forever be a mystery to me.)
What are some embarrassing things you did when you were younger?
