The position of Fem-nerd, or Femineity in nerd culture

Since i was a little girl i have watched and grown up with star trek, my little brother and i learnt all the words to the beginning sequence, my best friend was even named after one of the characters, in other words i was a massive nerd. In my high school years I was defiantly an outcast, but at the age of 14 i discovered Harajuku fashion and anime, these were my new loves, i spent hours looking at fashion shows and reading blogs about Harajuku. My Friends were not as enthusiastic about…

TARDIS vs. Enterprise

Would you rather live on the TARDIS or the Enterprise?

 

I confess I am a Neophyte Trekkie, so some commenters have pointed out a couple points I didn't address in my video. But my opinion still stands. Leave your opinions in a comment or make a video response!

New Baby

Tonight, at 9:16 pm, my brother's wife gave birth to a perfect baby boy.

When we brought my brother's 3-year-old daughter he said to me, "Look at this, we have a Princess and a Geek." While I have no doubt that my niece will be a geek too (she already reads like a monster), this seemed to be all that was on the mind of my brother and I. WE couldn't wait to get him into the Star Trek science officer onesie that I had bought for my niece after she was born. The first thing I said when I…

How would you actually like to visit Mars in the Enterprise?

Submerged in a link about Skylons vs SLS that Vertigo_One put in a discussion the other day was this:

http://www.buildtheenterprise.org

It's a website by an engineer named Dan who seems to have figured out how to build The Enterprise spaceship using existing technology.  He thinks it can be done in 20 years with a mere $1 trillion,  and of course, it would take…

So I got hit...

Yesterday I went to see “Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace” with 4 of my friends. I went to an afternoon showing in Cardiff, and we all enjoyed the movie. After the show we decided to walk around Cardiff for a bit. Later on, after 2 of my friends had gone home, the other two and I were walking back to the train station when some young teen (chavs) passed us on bikes shouting: “Wanka’s”. Of course we walked on, and continued talking.…

Inspiration , TFiOS, and Art

I'd like to say first of all, if this blog doesn't make any sense, I am sorry. I have been up all night because I work thirds and sometimes my southern accent can seep through my writing skills.

A few months ago I watched a Vlogbrother video, of course, and I saw where John had given us the amazing option of pre-ordering The Fault in Our Stars and, in doing so, we will get a signed copy of said book. I have read most of his work and thought this was an amazing thing, so I…

It's been two weeks since you looked at me.

Not a whole lot went right this weekend.  I missed out on Anime Club, I totally spaced out on the local Japan Festival, I still  haven't gone to the Renaissance Festival, and I neglected my organization plans for my room.  Seriously, my room is starting to  cause me to sink deeper, and deeper, into dispair.  I can't deal with unkeptness as such.



Today at work, I had been caught in a bind, because I couldn't remember whether I had brushed my teeth that day.  Like any other  day, I…

Bad Spelres Untie!

In case you haven't noticed, I am a terible speller, and I openly admit it. This is what you get when I dont use spell check. Anyway, Im just goning to talk a little about each type of speller.
