It’s that time of year! Not Christmas, but summer’s version of Christmas for nerds – it’s San Diego Comic-Con time! And just like Christmas time, SDCC requires a lot of advance planning to maximize the fun and excitement. I know a lot of people have been asking me what I’m looking forward to, so I […]
One of the first lessons I learned in counseling was how to celebrate my accomplishments, regardless of how small or insignificant. My depression killed my motivation to do nearly anything. Sitting down to watch tv episodes was a chore in and of itself, and I LOVE watching tv. Thus, doing anything like making myself a sandwich, […]
I never really thought I would ever want a tattoo growing up. I’ve never been against tattoos, I’m just indecisive.

Each year at San Diego Comic-Con, Sunday comes so quickly. At this point I’m excited to go home, sleep in my bed, and hug my husband and my cat. But at the same time, I don’t want to go home, because that means not being around these awesome people. SDCC really is like summer camp – it’s […]
Saturday is where things get a little fuzzy for me because after my miraculous day Friday, I decided to basically do whatever I wanted Saturday and not worry about sticking to a schedule. So Saturday I SLEPT IN A LITTLE. By that I mean til maybe around 8:30? Which still is great after two straight […]
When you read about going to San Diego Comic-Con, the first thing people tell you is to lower your expectations as to how much you’re actually going to accomplish. There are dozens upon dozens of different things to do at every hour, which is awesome and amazing. The big events though, like Hall H panels […]
Thursday is always such an exciting day at Comic-Con for me. There’s this feeling in the air that anything can and will happen. Summer camp for nerds has officially begun.
