There's a fun little questions tag making its way around our geeky blogger community, and I love the thought behind it! It was created by Kayla of Epicfied and its just three short questions aimed towards getting to know each other a little better. The lovely miss Pepi tagged me and I'm happy to keep up the fun! Before we get to the questions, I'm going to tag Kayly of My Open Sketchbook, Nicole of CuppaGeek, and Natalie of Natalie Patalie. No pressure to join in if you aren't feeling it, ladies! I just adore you and want to learn a little more about you, no big deal=P So without further ado, let's get to the questions!

1. How did you think of your username/website name?
It's a pretty lame story, actually. Before Her Geekery, I always took my blog names from song lyrics that I liked. For example, my blog before this one, Oh Sweet Samsara, was named after the song Sweet Samsara by Miho Hatori. It just always made sense to me to name my blogs after things that I really loved, and since I'm not very creative, song lyrics worked best for me!

When I decided to re-brand and focus more on what I enjoy writing about, I wanted my blog to feel more cohesive. I knew I wanted to write about life as a lady geek, so I wanted my blog's name to convey that idea. I spent a lot of time with blog name generators and tried out A LOT of different names that I thought would fit and eventually decided on Her Geekery. I think it works, and I'm happy I stuck with it!

2. Quick! Choose three fandoms that you’re a part of and those can be the only ones you can ever listen to, watch, read, etc. (and why?)
Definitely a tough question! I think that first, I'd go with Harry Potter. Always. There are so many things about the book series that have made it such a special part of my life. Not going to lie, I'm a hater when it comes to the movies, but I will love the books forever. I could read them over and over again (I have, in fact!) and I can't see myself ever getting sick of them. I grew up with them and they helped shape me into the person I am today, so it's a no-brainer to me.

The other two aren't so easy to narrow down, though! I guess my next one would have to be Friends (the TV show...not, you know, my actual friends). Friends has made a huge difference in my life...I seriously don't know who I'd be without it. When I'm feeling depressed or anxious, I watch it until I feel better. Never fails! I've seen each episode at least a dozen times and I know more about Monica, Chandler, Rachel, Ross, Phoebe, and Joey than pretty much anything else, haha.

My third choice would have to be World of Warcraft! The WoW universe is so vast and the lore is super extensive. I've been working my way through the lore books and I'm nowhere near finished, so I know this fandom is capable of keeping me entertained. Sometimes I feel like I've lost faith in the game but it always manages to draw me back in.

3. Your three dream jobs, if money wasn’t an issue?  
1) The owner/head brewer of a micro-brewery! It'd be a ton of hard work, but it'd also be really, really fun. This has been a huge dream of mine for the past few years, and I've taken business entrepreneur classes to learn more about making this a reality. The classes did open up my eyes to just how difficult starting up and maintaining a business like this would be, but it's still something I think my husband and I would be good at!

2) Professional author! This is going to sound a little messed up, but sometimes when I read YA books, I think to myself, 'I could totally write better than this.' I know that sounds kinda snobby but seriously, some of the stuff out there is completely ridiculous! Writing has been a big passion of mine since I was young. I think I could kill it as an author, but actually sitting down and putting my ideas on to paper is tough! Which, of course, makes me feel a lot of respect for even the worst YA authors=P Writing a book is a huge undertaking, but it's something I really hope to do within the next few years.

3) Some sort of professional traveler. Like, just travel and get paid to do it. I've been going through a pretty bad existential crises lately and all I really want to do is just get the heck out of here and explore! All I know is that I don't want to be stuck working for the government forever.
