Lil House of the Nerdy

My universe is one where I devour books, consume copious volumes of tea and coffee, play video games, binge watch TV shows and film, attempt arts and crafts, write heaps of stuff, and work at embracing my nerdiness, applaud my geekiness, and encourage my inner otaku. However, I never had a place I could call my own. I lived in campus housing all four years in university, apartment hopped, studied in Rome, worked in Japan, and flew around as a flight attendant.

During most of my twenties and thirties, my parents were protectors of my otherworldly and super nerdy possessions. Last year, I decided it was high time, my stuff graduated from their garage and earned prominent display of their own. Working on improving my own character stats, I decided that it was high time for me to tackle some of those life milestones I kept daydreaming about. Join me for the more intense campaign logs as I dabble in home improvement and encounter life as a first time parent!

  I never thought I would set down roots of my own.

Achievement Unlocked: First Time Homeownership

The running joke was that since I left for college, the hardest thing for me to due was unpack. From Gainesville to Japan to New York to Hawaii… I simply kept hopping around the globe and living out of suitcases. Closing in on the twilight of my thirties, I decided it was time to hunker down and get a place I can truly call my own. I am by no means a DIY Diva, but I am going to transform my place into a geek chic, nerd foxy, babe lair where I can entertain and unwind with those important in my life.

Y’all, I’m a home owner!! Can you believe it?!

Achievement Unlocked: Rescued Dog

  • Campaign Log: NerDoggie “Legends of Zelda Stardust”
  • Quest Unlocked: 02/01/16

After Barney adopted my parents in 2014, I have longed to be in a position where I could share my life with a fuzzy, four-legged friend. As things calmed down with the Lil House, I started researching animal rescues. In the wake of Davie Bowie’s passing, I came across Stardust, and my gut and heart just knew she’d be perfect. I’m quickly learning that parenthood isn’t easy, but I am loving creating a home with my wonderful sidekick.
