    Coming Out of the [Nerd] Closet

    Today is Harry Potter’s birthday.  This is one of my passions I mentioned before.

    Not birthdays… I don’t even like birthdays that much.  No, I am talking about nerdy, geeky, fandoms.

    Until recently, I haven’t been totally okay with sharing this side of myself freely with others because it’s “weird.”  It’s unacceptable.  It makes people uncomfortable because they don’t always understand it.  With the help of blog’s like epbot.com and the vlog brothers and the support of my wonderful husband and friends, I am coming to believe that it IS ok.  Things I love ARE acceptable.  In fact, there are other people out there just like me, who love what I love, do what I do, and believe how I believe.  Seeing how not alone I am has given me courage to begin this part of my life – not without fear, but in spite of it.

    What a crazy, random, happenstance.

    Well, It’s About Time

    Today is my 26th birthday.  It’s been 5 years since I graduated from college and married the man of my dreams.  It’s also been 5 years since I’ve pursued any kind of writing or artistic goals.  The so called “real world” quickly devoured all of my free time and motivation for such things.

    I intend to change that this year.

    I know this site isn’t quite done yet and things aren’t really how I want them… but if I wait for perfection, I will never begin.  Not beginning is no longer a viable option for me.

    I intend for this space to be devoted to my passions, gratefulness, and growth.  Please bear with me while I find my voice again and attempt to tap into the creativity that was buried for so long.
