When people think of geeks, they think of the kids in High School nobody really talked to, or however movies portray them. Honestly, Hollywood really did a number on the “coolness” integrity of being a geek, because I promise you, it is really cool. Over the course of my many years being a part of the “geek community” as I so affectionately call it, I have met the greatest people I have ever known and lifetime friends, I have found lifetime hobbies in things like watching anime or partaking in playing video games. Honestly, you will never find a funnier and more kindhearted person than your local geek.
Over the course of this blog, I shall tell you of my exploits in converting people to the geek side of the force, as well as telling you the basic things you need to know, like what an MMORPG is, of what a meme is. But more than anything, I recommend you get out there and talk to them, I promise you we don’t bite. Go out to a LAN party, bring your laptop and play with them. Go out and find your local anime convention or comic book convention (There is honestly no experience quite like a good convention). Nothing makes me happier than to see new people hanging out with us!
Throughout the course of this blog, I will be giving you, my loyal readers, some insight into what geeks really represent, and some fin facts and good things to know.
