Embrace Your Inner Geek & Win (Part 2)!...

I think I've finally figured out why I didn't embrace the nerd-olution or the geek army or anything sci-fi when I was a kid but I do so happily now. See, back then I looked to film and television for glimpses at what my future could be, and I didn't really buy the whole "aliens will take over the Earth" thing. I kept my fingers crossed for a hovercraft, maybe, but really I needed something grounded and real to give me a look at how adults could relate to each other in family, friendship, and love. It was still entertainment, but it allowed me to escape into a different, and better, world than my own nonetheless.

Nowadays, though, I am an adult. I have pieced together how to relate to those around me in family, friendships, and love through the shows of my yesteryear. So now when I want to escape, I do find myself reaching for extremes. Dealing with the day-to-day pitfalls and trappings and mundanity of the paying bills, keeping a house running, and dealing with relationship issues is my reality now; sometimes I want to see worlds that are worse than mine but yet still manage to embody a sense of hope and humanity. Because if the characters can keep it during post-apocalyptic times, then my petty problems are definitely put into perspective!
