I am proof that socially awkward geeks don't always blossom into amazingly confident adults after college. I am just an older, highly educated, socially awkward geek.
Favorite Books, Movies, Music, and more
Books: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, The His Dark Materials Trilogy by Philip Pullman, pretty much anything by Tamora Pierce, Rick Riordan's Camp Half Blood books, the obligatory Harry Potter series. Pretty much all of children's and young adult literature (which is the focus of my graduate studies). Movies/television: Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, any Monty Python movie, as well as all of Monty Python's Flying Circus, Buffy the Vampire Slayer (movie and show), Angel, Eureka, Stargate Atlantis, Reba, Chuck (season 1 because I haven't watched the rest of it yet), The Big Bang Theory, and of course, Dr. Who. Music: Whatever makes me happy at the moment. Usually some form of heavy metal (high metal with fantastsical elements or Viking metal--not screamo). I also like techno, classical, 90's alternative, punk, some (very little) hip-hop, and the occasional catchy pop tune.
