Hello world, and welcome to my new blog! Yes, it’s like the third time (maybe? I lose count…) I attempt to start a new blog, but this time I’m serious about it, I promise! So what’s this blog going to be about then? Well, my plan is to use this blog to give an insight into the life of a female geek. I’ll be blogging about purchases I make, commenting about stuff I read, games I play, and most importantly, showing off my projects.
So what types of things am I into that you can expect to read about in this blog? Well, of course, as you might already have guessed from all the photos in my sidebar, my main hobby LEGO building is going to be given vast space. After all, it’s what I fill most of my spare time with these days, being an AFOL (Adult Fan Of LEGO). Now you might think LEGO is a children’s toy, but you might change your mind if you see all the cool stuff you can do with it 😉
I’m also a computer geek (and a programmer by profession), a Linux user and open source supporter. I play games, buy lots of gizmos and gadgets, and engage in physical activities such as Aikido. So expect stuff about all of those things.
You can also be sure that I’ll be talking about the interesting conversations I have with people who still struggle to understand that females can be just as geeky as males. Just recently, a guy who knows I’m a computer geek, who knows I’m deeply into LEGO, who is a computer geek and AFOL himself, was surprised when I said I played StarCraft II. Apparently, that was at an even geekier level, and I’m a girl after all! A lot of guys seem to think I’m some sort of rare breed with all this non-girly interests of mine. Maybe I am, but I’m proud to be a girl, and being a geek doesn’t make me any less of a girl (and no, I’m not a lesbian, and I’m married to a guy :P)
I think that’s enough of an introduction. Hope you’ll enjoy my blog!
