What I’m Looking Forward to in 2017

This is slightly delayed but in the tradition of last year here are a few things I am looking forward to in the coming year. Movies: Logan While I have been completely disappointed with The X-Men movie franchise I can’t help but admit curiosity over this installment. If the trailers are correct it looks raw, […]

Megan Rants: Trashing on Self Publishing

Recently in a fit of irony HuffPost put out an article demeaning author’s that self publish. I am going to lay out some things before giving my response. The first is that I could not finish the piece, it was rude, ill informed, and like most of what comes from that site… complete crap. Second, […]

Be Mindful During the Holidays

This post is perhaps later than it should be, but be mindful during the holidays. The idea that suicidal thoughts and actions increase during these times are based in fact. If you know anyone that suffers from PTSD, depression, or any other mental illnesses reach out to them. If you know someone with no history […]

Representation: Tracer

So this blog post might get me a lot of hate, but here it is. Blizzard released the Overwatch comic, which (pretty much) confirms that Tracer is gay with this image. Let me just say, kickass, awesome, amazing, woo. I am all about the choice to have Tracer be an open lesbian and good one […]

Comparing Myself to Others

One of the worst traits about myself is my toxic, almost obsessive, need to compare myself to others. The other day, for no reason at all, I decided to look up the age of a woman that I respect. I discovered she is almost exactly a year older than me. My reaction to this was […]

Self Defeat

I wanted to respond to people with a more positive attitude (even when they were being the worst). I wanted to respond with understanding and education instead of judgment and anger. Something […]

Playing Through My Early Years: Ratchet and Clank

I am a huge fan of the action/adventure pseudo platformer “genre”. Games such as Spyro, Jak and Daxter series, Kingdom Hearts (to an extent). One of my favorite series was Ratchet and Clank. It had been a good many years since I got my hands on one of these games. I missed the PlayStation 3 […]

Hard Decision

About a year ago I started up Geeks Nerds Unite. I did so after no longer writing for other websites. My hope with it was to have my own place where I felt I could have more control over the shape of the site. It was an experiment to say the least, and I am […]

Food Cost and Food Waste

So as my personal posts have implied, I am starting to take my physical health a lot more seriously (or am making an effort to). There is a lot of room for improvement, no iffs, ands, or buts about it. I have started to cut certain things from my diet (or at least cut back […]

Megan Rants: Word Choice

In the recent weeks we’ve seen a lot of a presidential candidate’s so called “sex scandal”. Let me preface the rest of this rant by saying this is not about whether or not you support Clinton or another 3rd party candidate. This is not even entirely about Trump. This is about the importance of word […]
