WonderCon 2019

Favorite Comic Con ever

WonderCon 2019
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…

Don’t ruin a good today by thinking about a bad yesterday.

“I don’t understand, is it a millennial thing ? This need to
share everything with the world ?”

Don't ruin a good today by thinking about a bad yesterday.
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.

CAUSING TROUBLE (at the Science Museum)

That was intense

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.

No selfies this week 😦

Hello everyone ! Just a little update to let you know that I am still sick, but getting better. I’m in an excellent mood, even though being ill is awful, I’m spending my days watching amazing movies from the 60’s and earlier on; I am absolutely in love with old movies. I should be back on my feet next week, for sure. Don’t worry, it’s passing and soon gone.

I read an interesting post on LinkedIn yesterday, saying that most blogs “suck” because they’re not dedicated to something in particular, and so readers get confused & bored. I think it’s probably right & I admit my blog is kinda about (too) many things, which could potentially make people wonder “what the hell I’m about”. Well, it’s a personal blog, which means I’ve never really thought it would become much. I’ve enjoyed sharing whatever I wanted, just because I could. Also I’m a very messy person in real life, it’s obvious that trait of my personality translates itself online.

But I am about three main things actually… Above everything, I’m a photographer who dreams of becoming a filmmaker. Then, I’m a hardcore Geek who is the Founder & Editor-in-Chief of Geekland mag, an online magazine that allows me to attend Comic Cons as a reporter. Lastly, I’m super girly and addicted to wellness so I just adore talking about these things a lot. Until yesterday I’ve never considered that my blog could be where I showcase my main points to help me achieve more. To me, my blog was more about trying out experimental ideas or projects and showing EVERYTHING that I’m into. Not long ago, I wrote how I wanted to expand even into more activities.

It’s time to calm down, and chill back… relax whatever I need, to focus on my real objectives. That’s definitively what I should be about on this blog. I’m a messy person, except when it’s connected to work, then I’m extremely professional. I’m gonna continue bettering myself no matter what path I choose to follow, that means the content will not suffer. Maybe that’s the change I needed, because last year when I totally “burned out” and put my blog on a break, it had all to do with the fact that I was doing too much & I couldn’t deal anymore. I learned from my mistakes by allowing myself more free time and a flexible blogging schedule, but see, it still took me time to figure out the underlying issue which is, I’m losing myself when I try to be on every front. I’m relieved as I think from now, it will be more centered & meaningful.

I need to write this in capital letters “THE BLOG IS BACK”, and I am too. 100% ready to rock it ! Maybe before today, I was only back 65% of my actual potential.

There’s progress

We’re getting there, this is the final plan

moodySnapchat 👻 mads.kennedy

As you can tell on those pics, I am looking extremely moody… the reason is that even though I have made a lot of personal progress regarding the way I blog, and trying to post every project I have in mind each week, I am still struggling over my schedule.

The schedule I made weeks ago is pretty easy to manage, except if I am traveling. Oddly enough, I did not take account of that, which is a total fail from my part because I completely overlooked the fact that I go on trips almost every week.

Mistakes have been made… but they are already being corrected. I am changing my habits a little bit, since I came to the conclusion that scheduling posts is the best plan. From now on, most of the things you will see, will have been scheduled a week or two ago.

I enjoy blogging “live” and I will continue to do so, but because of how busy and tired I get when I’m traveling, I am not able to post five days a week like it is my wish. I want to share my adventures, and the things I work on all weekdays.

There’s many stuff I leave out when I don’t do so. It’s really important for me to fix that, and go forward by learning from my mistakes. I believe it will also be more enjoyable for you, to see more organized content from me.

I want to thank you for your patience, for staying loyal followers despite the big break The Blog underwent last year, and my experimental blogging methods over the last months.

I admit I got bored with the idea of blogging, but couldn’t bring myself to give it up, and with other things happening in my life, it became a mess. It’s better now though, and let’s cross our fingers that it continues to improve in the future !
