This is the last post about Geekland on this Blog.
Back in the day, I was a huge geek… so into the DC Comics universe, Star Trek, all the horror movies, and what not, that I started blogging about it on here.
Then I started going to Comic Cons, and meeting cosplayers; and it took a whole other level in my life, when I began getting invites from notorious geek conventions like MCM London Comic Con, to report on them. I had my own website, now deleted – because after a couple of years, it was too much work just for me.
But because I’ve always had a space to geek out, I kept an instagram account, that I pretty much abandoned during Covid, and now I’m back on it ! Obviously, I am never gonna be like I used to be, because I’ve evolved and nowadays I focus on other things like photography, some video projects (which you will see more & more of).
If you are a geek at heart though, and love these fantasy AI-generated portraits of me, this is exactly the type of content you will find on Geeklandmag‘s page ! That, and whenever I’ll attend conventions, or movies. I’ll be basically sharing anything that I love, that’s geek-related.
So this isn’t really a goodbye to that side of me, you’ll find it somewhere else, where it’s specifically dedicated to it. xoxox
I literally crossed an entire ocean and continent to get there !
I remember the first year I moved to LA and was introduced to the geek world, by a very good friend of mine : I was completely blown away. I had always been a geek at heart, but I had never imagined that places like convention centers that welcomed the biggest gatherings of geeks existed.
It changed my life. I started attending so many Comic Cons, and I even made a website where I would post about it and review stuff, and share cosplay… it was past my teenage years but I was a late bloomer, so really it felt like puberty time had finally hit me.
I mostly remember the fun, and the good times, and feeling like I belonged. I used to think I was a weirdo because of my hobbies, until I realized that there were others just like me. That made me gain confidence.
I’ve kinda put it away since I started “adulting”, but I still enjoy going back to these places, like comic book stores, because of all the awesome memories I had. You can still wander around my used-to-be platforms…
“I don’t understand, is it a millennial thing ? This need to share everything with the world ?”
There’s so many articles, tweets, and posts online about millennials… being part of that generation, I don’t exactly grasp why there’s such an obsession about our values & behavior – but at the same time, I know we’re totally iconic.
Yes, I am being sarcastic right now. I was recently advised to stop sharing my life, and accused of being a narcissist because I kept a blog as a diary… and somehow that gave the right to that person to paint me as self-centered.
Although I cannot agree because I know that this has always just been a cool hobby to me, and it’s whatever, not that serious. I was still deeply affected by that hater speech, which compromised my true personality and made me out to be someone I’ve never been.
But I get it, “millennials are like gluten, nobody really knows what they are but everybody loves to hate them”. The funniest part in that quote is that I check both cases, because I’m also intolerant to gluten… which is great.
I’m probably gonna start adulting soon (I hope… it’s another joke), and put my mind back on serious work, but in the meantime, I will not accept anyone tell me how to process my feelings for example. At the end of the day, I know myself best and I know what’s right for me.
So thank you for good feedback, but no thank you if it’s just trying to ruin my mood.
Last summer my sister and I were in Serbia, and the temperatures were so high we didn’t know what to do with ourselves; then I thought about the Science Museum and their AC, also that they have fun things and experiments, which decided us to go.
