TwitchCon: Day One

We arrived, got rest, and then seized the day. Well… I mostly seized the day. I am not ashamed to admit I had some difficulty with the con at first. TwitchCon is not my first, but it doesn’t matter how many cons I go to, they set off my anxiety. I was very surprised at […]

TwitchCon: The Journey To

We left on our journey to TwitchCon a few days early. On the way we planned on stopping to see my grandmother. Those that know me know that my family makes me nervous (like most other humans). I greatly enjoy seeing my family, yet always end up stressing myself out too much before I have […]

The Struggle for Ideas

In addition to “running” this blog, I also run geeksnerdsunite as you know. I say “running” because I am struggling to update it as often as I should. Over the years of writing, either for myself or other websites, coming up with ideas has always been an issue. Sometimes they come to me quickly, based […]

Can’t Judge A Book By It’s Cover

We’ve all heard the saying “You can’t judge a book by it’s cover” and it’s a rather nice, though slightly naïve. The reality is whether it’s actual book covers, people, food, anything really, our first look at it does shape our initial impressions.
