adventures in geekdom

The blog of a twentysomething who is finally unleashing her inner geek after stifling it for the majority of her adolescence.

hiatus 2.0

Yep, back for another round of non-posting!

With a busy upcoming semester and a total lack of motivation to write about anything lately, I’m giving this blog a break. I have no idea how long this hiatus will last, but here’s a notice to future visitors of my site to explain the lack of posts.

I do appreciate all of the support I’ve gotten thus far, and I hope you enjoy all of the content that’s already here. :)

Be safe, be good to each other, and geek on!

The Batman Movie Massacre

I don’t live in Aurora, but I do live close to there and know the theater that this all took place at. My thoughts go out to everyone who has been affected by this tragedy, and I’m sickened to hear that another small bit of humanity has been chipped away.

I mean, a six-year-old girl was killed. At the movies.

It’s just not fair.

If you’re not aware of what happened, here’s a link.

For everyone going to see The Dark Knight Rises or any other film this weekend, I hope you stay safe and are able to enjoy the experience.

AMURRCA.

Happy Independence Day to my fellow Americans, happy belated Canada Day to any Canadian readers, and happy Wednesday to everyone else! :)

Introducing THE HUDSUCKER!

First of all: I WILL NEVER EVER ABANDON MY PRECIOUS GEEK BLOG, EVER. Okay? I’ll postpone updates for lengthy periods of time when I suck at that grown-up thing called “time management,” but I’ll never abandon this blog. You got that? I personally enjoy it way too much, and the five regular readers I have would probably miss it too. ;)

Now that I’ve posted a disclaimer, I’m happy to announce that myself, as well as The Boyfriend, have been asked to be a contributing writer for a brand-new blogzine called THE HUDSUCKER. Essentially the purpose of the THE HUDSUCKER is:

to bring readers real and honest pieces by writers who driven by their sheer love and admiration of various subjects. THE HUDSUCKER aims to create a smart and unique environment for readers while getting info and connecting with each other through the world around them.

I’ve known many of the staff and contributing writers at THE HUDSUCKER for many years now, and I’m so excited to be working with them on this new and exciting endeavor. :) So be sure to follow THE HUDSUCKER as well if you’re interested in my non-geeky thoughts and ramblings!

And on a completely unrelated note…I’ll leave you with this:

So…this conversation happened.

Little-known fact about me on teh interwebz: I’ve been riding and working with horses since I was five years old. The Boyfriend has been absolutely lovely about the idea of owning horses someday, and the other day I had some…ideas…about what to name these future equine family members.

(Oh, and give me a break on misspelling Cersei Lannister’s name. The Boyfriend and I are still dreadfully behind on Season 2 of Game of Thrones.)
