Then I discovered she was a potential in Buffy the Vampire Slayer (only one of my favorite shows ever!).
Then she was cute and quirky in Eureka. Seriously Holly and Fargo are super cute!
Then I started following her on Twitter and Instagram.
Then she popped up in an episode of Supernatural, where she was super awesome and hilarious. I also wish I had her apartment in that episode (The Girl with the Dungeons and Dragon Tattoo), and if I start talking to Hermione like she's my conscious you'll know where that came from...
Then my husband mentioned The Guild, which I've only watched a few episodes of, but seems pretty funny. Although I am not a gamer, my husband and most of my friends are, so I sorta understand what is going on.
Then I saw her video about what her definition of a geek is, and was kinda blown away with her conviction.
I like that she has the guts to do her own thing, and not care what anyone thinks of her. I believe everyone should be that way. It's a hard thing to do, especially when you're into something unconventional, not mainstream, or whatever.
I think it's easier to be who you are and like whatever the hell you like, when you find your people. You know the people who like the things you like, and will support you and encourage you to just be awesome.
So go on being you, and being happy. Find your people, and encourage each other. Ignore the haters, they're probably at home doing whatever they're hating on you about in secret because they are too scared to be themselves.
Things I like to do that may not be considered "cool": read manga, watch anime, play cute video games, watch Korean dramedies, watch tons of sci-fi shows, dye my hair crazy colors, not dress my age....
What things do you like or do that may not be considered "cool" or "mainstream", even "geeky"?
