Amanda Geeks Out: Role-Playing Games

We hear all the time that being a geek is about how you love something–obsessively, passionately, and with an intense drive to consume. I’ve always been a fantasy, sci-fi, and comic fan…but I’m been branching out a bit lately, and I thought I would share a few new geeky categories that I’ve become interested in […]

DIY: Geeky Pin Display

Hey everyone! I have a quick little DIY for you today. I had realized that I was increasingly running out of space for the geeky pins that I manage to pick up everywhere at conventions and through Kickstarters or other nerd projects. I also remembered that I had an extra 8×10 picture frame in my […]

Short Vacation Stories: Blarney Castle

I promised a few people that I would share some pictures (and stories) from the Europe trip I went on this past summer.

Recap: Wizard World Chicago 2015

DIY: Halter Tank

I was a Loot Crate subscriber until recently, and I became a huge fan of the t-shirts. Even if I didn’t love the design, I had something I could use for my t-shirt alterations! While I think the James Bond SuperEmoFriends shirt is kind of cute, I’m not a big Bond fan. So I was able to […]

Recap: DragonCon!

Oh, my god. You guys. You guys.  I completely loved DragonCon. It was large and crowded and busy and hot and I didn’t get to do nearly as much as I wanted to, but it was somehow still completely amazing. I got to bond with old friends in new ways, and I met so many amazing new people. […]
