Montgomery

Boy oh boy is the South hot! Both of us thought the heat in Charlotte was cranking up, and that Atlanta was hot, but it has been a long time since I felt as hot as I did in Alabama! It’s kind of sad that our time here is going to be spent in the hotel room, what with the rich history and civil rights significance, but my foot definitely needs it and there is a lot of nerdy nerdy things to catch up on from Comic-Con and Nerd HQ!

Viva La Nerdolution

nerd machineFor as long as I could remember, I just presumed I was pretty bog-standard normal. That doesn’t really bother me. I didn’t really think I was very into anything, maybe sports, or Harry Potter, but if you can find many kids in Liverpool who aren’t at least mildly obsessed with one of those things than you are a better human-seeker than I am.

I used to love the OC. I don’t really know why I have put used to there, I still do, I can’t believe it finished 7 years ago! Seth Cohen was my favourite character in it without a shadow of a doubt. He was witty, intelligent, and a nerd. I’ve always loved the stories in comic-books, just don’t enjoy reading the actual things, and for the first time, there was a character on a main-stream show that I loved who liked all things nerdy. Now we have all sorts on the TV that are embraced by nerds, The Big Bang Theory epitomising this. It’s made me realise that being nerdy about something has almost become the way of saying that you really quite like it.

Marathons, Marvel, and Murder: A week in the life of a bored graduate

I am a Graduate. It has been official for a week now. Well, 8 days. I have uploaded all the photographs and shown them to various interested parties. I have written a post about it here to capture my thoughts on the day. I have ordered my official photographs. I’ve organised my certification and booklets from the day. Once that was done, which took me all of one afternoon, I have literally done nothing. A complete, huge, diddly squit. Nada.

The big things I meant to do were locate my passport and tidy/organise my bedroom. I would like to stress at this point that I don’t think my passport is lost, I have filed it in an EXTREMELY safe place, I have just forgotten where that place is. Very annoying, especially as I am travelling soon and need to begin organising visas etc. Let’s not panic yet, eh? And my room. Well I have been meaning to do that since I graduated. I did quite a bit when I first moved back in, but it’s really not as simple as that. My room is small, and I have a lot of stuff, and at the moment I have issues with actually moving in there. I find that when I try to sort stuff, the space I put it into to sort then blocks the place I am trying to sort it into, and vice versa. And with the hot weather (I really do my best not to complain too much with the weather, and just to be thankful when it is warm, but…) being so attractive at the moment, I just don’t want to lock myself away in a room that is already pretty damn stuffy and heat filled. I will get it done. At some point. Before my parents get home from their holiday.
