#Digiwrimo Day 16: Zombies

One of the things that I have clearly learned from my attempt at posting every day in November is that I am not very good at doing things every day. I may have already known that, but now I’m certain. I need to set an alarm or something. On three separate devices. Sometimes, I’m amazed […]

#Digiwrimo Day 12: PAX East

I will be seeing people at PAX East again this year, along with my Strategic Gaming Club! We actually got quite lucky in picking up tickets this year. I had a whole plan with student minions at my beck and call to jump on line and get in queue for PAX East tickets. Last year, […]

#Digiwrimo Day 11: Canon and Fanon

So, I just watched the Supernatural 200th episode, which did their annual 4th wall breaking fandom episode. However, they brought up some interesting aspects of canon that I thought I would use as my post today. My partner and I have some differences of opinion on where canon ends and other things begin. He’s a […]

#Digiwrimo Day 9: 13.1

Well, I missed another day, but I have an excuse this time. Last night, I ran a half-marathon. That’s 13.1 miles. My feet hurt. I ran the Disney Wine and Dine half marathon. It’s a pretty fun race. You get to run around three Disney parks, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, and EPCOT. Then you get […]

#Digiwrimo Day 7: Wearing My Nerd Proudly

I got into a conversation with one of my students recently when I noted that all the nerd and otakus hang out in the back of our snack bar area. He said something along the lines of: Otaku is like an insult. I replied with something along the lines of: It’s exactly the same type […]

#Digiwrimo Day 6: How to Train Your Puppy

In March, my partnerĀ and I adopted a 9 week old black pug. Since then, every moment of our lives has been alternating between “OMG this dog is crazy annoying!” and “OMG this dog is so freakin’ adorable!”. So, we have been taking training classes. Our pug, Macklin (Burt Macklin), is super duper smart, that’s not […]

#Digiwrimo Day 5: Shame of the Otaku

Sometimes, I have the coolest job ever. You see, I am a community college professor, and as part of that job, I am asked to be the advisor to two clubs on campus. Here is my piece of advice for any future college professors out there: Find the clubs that you would have joined as […]

#Digiwrimo Day 4-1: Ooops … Disney Geek-Out!

Whoops! I already missed a day. I’m bad at this thing. I clearly need to make this a calendar alert or something so I remember. I suppose that’s the point, right, so that I make it a habit to be writing daily, and it isn’t yet. So, I’m going to Disney World this weekend! I’m […]

#Digiwrimo Day 2: My Tribe is Nerd

Today I was asked if I have a Tribe. Not a Native American tribe, although I was an Indian Princess back in the day and my tribe then was Sioux. We used to go camping with our fathers and hunt for snipes. One time, my tribe walked across a frozen lake and left large pictures […]

#Digiwrimo Day 1: DC on TV

I’ve decided to participate in #digiwrimo, which is a digital writing version of nanowrimo. I have no interest in ever writing a novel, but I have a poor, neglected blog that could use some updates at times other than when I’m raising money for children (not that Extra Life isn’t a great cause!). So, here […]
