I'm a geek. A big geek. And I'm so proud of it, it isn't funny. I reference things in conversation just for the sake of referencing them, whether or not anyone will get it (though someone usually does, given my circle of friends). I love science, music, learning new things, and of course, wasting time on TV Tropes
. I read voraciously and write...not as voraciously. I'm a big anime/manga buff (though not as knowledgeable as I'd like to be), and I play a ton of video games.
My life as a nerd started when I was little: I watched Power Rangers
religiously from the time I was five, and continued watching it until Lost Galaxy. I cut my video game teeth on my childhood best friend's Playstation, playing Crash Bandicoot
and Twisted Metal, before I got my own PS1
and became a firm believer in the Platformer and RPG genres.
I didn't REALLY become a nerd, though, until February 2005: that's when Avatar: The Last Airbender
premiered on Nick. Repeated failures (Danny Phantom
not living up to its potential, and Invader Zim
getting cancelled, not to mention that absorbent yellow abomination
) had killed my faith in the network—in fact, I thought Avatar was going to be crap, too, just because it was on Nick—but then I watched the premiere and my mind was blown
. I was an Avatard
from there on out.
From there, I just came to embrace my reality as a geek, and jumped the world of fandom feet first and with a lot of noise. LONG LIVE THE GEEK!
