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 […]

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. It was an amazing trip–I was able to see so many things and visit so many places. One place I got especially excellent photos was Blarney Castle. We visited Blarney Castle and […]

I was stuck in a lack-of-inspiration […]

Admittedly, I’ve been a little lax on the blogging lately (for someone who has only one class, I’ve been incredibly busy with schoolwork). This week’s 5 Fandom Friday, though, is on the food/drink we consume while blogging, and since one of my favorite things is food, I just had to join in. None of these are […]

5 Fandom Friday: What’s In a Name?

Today’s 5 Fandom Friday topic comes at a sad, but appropriate, time. When I was 13, my uncle was telling my that I was named after the Boston song Amanda. My mom shook her head and said “Your uncle is crazy–I named you after Spock’s mom.” As you may know, Leonard Nimoy passed this morning.
