It’s National Embrace Geekness Day!

july 13, 2017 post_2It’s July 13th and that means let your inner geek shine! In the past decade we’ve taken the word ‘geek’ and transfigured it from demeaning to flattering. Geekdom now brings people together and lets them express and be proud of the quirky things that define us. Whether you spend your time cosplaying, reading comic books or talking to your friends in cling on you make your fandom shine. So on this wonderful geeky day embrace your passionate obsessions and let your imagination run wild!

What Are Some Ways To Celebrate?

  • wear your favorite fandom shirt around town or to work
  • re-read your favorite book series (some geeks¬† have been known to re-read the Harry Potter series in a single day!)
  • gather your Star Wars (or any fandom favorite) DVD’s and have a binge-a-thon!

“When I was a kid, it was a huge insult to be a geek. Now it’s a point of pride in a weird way.” – J. J. Abrams

So drama geeks and sci-fi freaks gather your pokéballs and ready your Tardis for travel as you express your fandoms loud and proud!
