Geek is the new Cool!


 

I’m sure without a doubt 80% of you reading this are in exactly the same shoes as me.

High school was a nightmare.

We weren’t ‘cool’, we were ‘lame’.

We liked Comics, Video Games, Table Top Games, Card Games, Cosplay, Lolita, Anime, Manga, Cartoons, Fanfic, Books and Computers.

But Highschool is behind us, and were in a new world now. A world were all of the above are now cool.

My Stargate boxsets, My little pony shirts, Baldur’s Gate games, X-men comics and Cosplay show my cred and what was once our ‘weakness’ has become our greatest strength!

This post isn’t an in-depth look at the rise of the geek.

It’s a salute to all the years I spent being picked on and ridiculed. To all the hours I spent doing the things that I loved.

I won the battle.

Now I’m the one that’s cool. Must suck to be you.

      I’m an X-men girl through and through! So I’d have to say the X-men. But it’s gonna be a brutal battle!
