Passion and Embracing your Geekdom.

I wasn't sure what I should write about today. I've been really hung up on the pocket letters and pen pals lately but I feel like I've been neglecting my other joys of Geekdom. At the same time I've been embracing something new and seeing where it has been taking me.

Wise Words found HERE
I keep having to remind myself that there is no rules or limitations on what you enjoy. There are no specifics on how you get there. There are no Right ways or Wrong ways on why you are doing something the way you are doing it.

This year has been a year of a lot of changes in my life and there are a TON of things that I am experiencing and trying to experience that I haven't before.

One of the cool things is being a part of communities like IGGPPC and recently getting some non (or less) geeky pen pals in the Pocket Letters club.

But there are SO many other things that I want to try. One of them is truly embracing Cosplay. I have loved Costuming and everything Costume related for years. There is a reason that Halloween is one of my favourite Holidays. I am working on building some costumes of my own creation (you can find them all on my Facebook .... come like me) but I'll include one or two below...

The main problem with hobbies (especially those that involve sewing) is my limited time when I can actually sew. During the day I work, in the evening I have my kids and once my kids are in bed I find it hard to sew being it's a little noisy and I worry about waking them up. (Also I'm too tired to do a good job and I'm a bit of a perfectionist at times.) I really really really want to get my costumes ready for Fan Expo... which is in September.

So to all those trying new things I will give you the encouragement that I try to give myself... KEEP GOING! Don't give up and you will get there in time. There is no time limits on Success and no deadlines for hobbies. So enjoy it and embrace your passions.

Until Next Time
Keep On Geekin On.
