You know, as I look around at this dusty old blog, I find it to be pretty shocking I don't have anything labeled under "geeky" yet! Since I rebooted this blog not much of the nerdy/geeky activities that dominate my actual life have made onto the internet and I have come to the conclusion that I'm doing this whole thing wrong. Sure, I may have said that I wanted to make a blog to document my activities and have my friends keep up with me, but I think I was really half heartedly trying to make a blog that might blow up in Pinterest. Or get me sponsors. Or bring me notoriety in some way. What happens when you do something for others instead of yourself? This, my friends.
THIS = long instances between posts because I was worried that nothing I did was interesting enough to blog about
THIS = posts about crafting (which I love) but none about geeky stuff, that's not me at all!
THIS = being a chore instead of a joy
Well this stops right now. I love to write and play games and eat and cook and make lists and ride bikes and from now on this blog will be a lot more of that. (rant over)
Anyway, you're still reading, yay! Last weekend some friends and I went to Wondercon. It was my first time and I've often heard that Wondercon is what Comic-con used to be like (makes sense as they are one company). There were tens of thousands of people, but I still found that it wasn't quite as much of a crush as PAX. I went to some great panels (and missed some great ones), saw some great cosplay, and generally left the con feeling really inspired. It's AMAZING to be in a place where everyone making and doing something creative or admiring those who make and do creative things. Incidentally, one or more of those amazing people also gave me a gnarly cold. I am writing this up only after a weeks worth of TLC! Anyway, one of my bucket list items is to cosplay at a con and I thought I would share just some of the sights one can expect to see. Lots of fabric, paint, cardboard, wigs, skin and enthusiasm!
