Geeks and Dating

Today I’ll be talking about two things.  TLC’s Geek Love and the Kotaku article, Nerds and Male privilege (which originated from here). Geek Love– Yes, I watched it.  Not just because I was on there, I wanted to see how it turned out.  It wasn’t as much of a train wreck as I thought it was.  What you saw was no edits whatsoever.  Also what you didn’t know is that in the Sunday session I was in, about half those girls I speed dated with were in the Saturday night session as well. Did I get a contact? Yes.

Learning From Your Mistakes

I’ve been cosplaying for over ten years.  During this time, I’ve made stupid mistakes.  Mostly of me speaking before I think.  Granted most of us are guilty of that, but me more so than others.  I am thankful that I’ve learned from that.  I’m going to share with you all a couple of short stories of where my mouth has gotten me into trouble and how I learned from it.

Started out as a page for my fanfiction, then about the cons I’ve gone to, then a page about my cosplays, and then my podcasting. I spun off the podcasting to here (www.animejamsession.com). The link to my convention pictures are on the right, but that will be moved over to the podcasting page soon enough. So… What do you expect here? More irregular thoughts and views on life, music, anime, cosplay, and everything in between. I am not a person that posts a lot (well, I have a livejournal, god knows the last time I was in there) because I’m lazy. What I plan to do is to tell stories about life and the funny shit that happens. I suppose this is an experiment in progress, but let’s see how successful this is.
