I'm a bit of a geek, a nerd, a dork, whatever you want to call it, and I refuse to apologize for this. While I don't own a pocket protector, I think they are a pretty good idea. Everyone is a geek for something, whether it's music, art, video games, or science, it's just a passion that you happen to obsess over, don't be ashamed of it. I love hearing someone stumble over themselves trying to tell me everything about their favourite thing as fast as possible because my life is meaningless until I appreciate it as much as they do.
I just moved from Michigan to Cincinnati to start a new job in August and don't know very many people in town. I'm hoping this site will be helpful in getting to know a few people in the city. Of course I would prefer an in-person meeting, but if this is the first step then I'm ok with that.
"We are the music makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;—
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems."
