I actually have two hobbies that are kinda geeky!
I didn’t grow up in a superhero family. Sure, I watched Batman cartoons on TV when I was a kid, and my parents kind of liked that Superman show that was on for a while starring Dean Cain.
The real life geek that inspires me is the person who is the reason I am a geek in the first place – my dad!
This one’s pretty easy – I planned my entire wedding around a Lord of the Rings theme!
Attending a convention has been on my bucket list for a while. I can’t imagine anything sounding more fun than hanging out with a bunch of like-minded fans wearing fantastic costumes and talking about nerdy stuff. It’s just never worked out for me to go.
I’ve been a Star Wars fan for many years, but it wasn’t until the last couple years that I also became a… Reylo shipper (Rey and Kylo Ren/Ben Solo from the sequel Star Wars trilogy).
One of the first things I really got obsessed over was the Animorphs book series by K.A. Applegate, in elementary school. I didn’t even know what a fandom was at that point, but I was definitely a part of it. I read EVERY. SINGLE. BOOK. All 64 of them.
Summer weekends pre-kids: sitting at the beach or pool, reading a book a week, getting a tan. Summer weekends post-kids: picking up from camp, running to swimming lessons and soccer games, supervising on playgrounds. If you do get to sit by the pool, it’s “stop running” and “stop splashing your sister.” I get it. So
It’s no secret that the epithet “nerd” no longer carries many of the negative connotations it once did. Geeks everywhere are wearing their intelligent, passionate, and zany personalities on their sleeve, and with good reason – it’s cool to be a nerd! We come in all shapes and sizes, and have a variety of interests
My husband and I moved out of state and away from both of our friends and families six years ago. We made the move for work, which was a good thing, but now that we have kids, it makes things challenging. We still live close enough that some family members can still visit from time
