Hi, I’m Laura, and I’m a Geek

Embrace Your Geekiness Day was July 13th and this site defines a geek as…

A geek is completely obsessed with one or more subjects, and can speak fluently on it for hours, sounding like a walking encyclopedia of geeky facts.

The Urban Dictionary says:

Geek: An outwardly normal person who has taken the time to learn technical skills. Geeks have as normal a social life as anyone, and usually the only way to tell if someone is a geek is if they inform you of their skills. 

The first definition, not so much. But by the second one, yeah, I’m a geek. I used my first personal computer when the projectionist, at the movie theatre I managed, brought his old Commodore 64 in and I used it to make posters, flyers, and marketing materials–with a dot matrix pin feed printer with continuous feed paper. I don’t even recall what program it was. Didn’t matter; I had been transported. A time machine couldn’t have been more exciting. Nirvana.

Flash forward to 2005 when I had honed fairly decent home computer skills. Between then and now I would never have believed I would learn Ezines (lol), WordPress or other blogging platforms for myself and clients. I really never saw myself as tech savvy. Through perseverance and sheer determination I have bloomed into a true Geek. The first time I wrote a string of html code that worked I did a happy dance. On. The. Spot.

I’ve always been a bookgeek and a librarygeek so I’m happy to introduce myself as a techgeek, too.  Hi, I’m Laura, and I’m a geek.

Here’s my Photogrophygeek shining through:
