I am proud to be part of a family full of geeks, with a circle of friends who are just as geeky. My husband is heavily into sci-fi/fantasy and could state events (and quotes) from any MCU, DC, Star Trek, Star Wars, GoT, and LOTR film/episode at the drop of a hat. My sister is the queen of pop culture and reads fan fic for fun. Our friends are into anime, video games, board games, and cult classic horror films. I am considered the odd one out for attending drink events, but I’m still one to geek out on international culture, languages, history, music, drink facts, and occasionally, calculus (like a bloody madwoman).

Game of Thrones returned for its 8th and final season (there is a mandate in our house that NOBODY is allowed to disturb me from 9:00-10:00am Manila time every Monday until the season is over), Star Wars Episode IX’s trailer came out (sniffs), and…
