“Geek” is a great example of a word that has evolved from having a negative meaning to having a positive one. What is a geek? A geek is a person who is knowledgeable and enthusiastic about a specific subject. In honor of May 4th being a well-known geek out day for Star Wars, we decided we wanted to share with you our geek side.
Kate is 100% a geek when it comes to Overwatch! Her favorite characters are D.Va and Junkrat. Kate shared, “I love it because of how diverse the characters are. And everyone is strong and cool in their own way. It was one of the first times that I felt included in a video game. I’ve made so many friends through it as well.”
Holly is a total geek when it comes to Harry Potter! “I have a lot more than what’s in the picture from when I was a kid, but I have the complete series of books, movies, and video games. Throughout my entire childhood through high school, I always thought I would be Gryffindor. I finally took the official Pottermore quiz and found out that I was a Hufflepuff. I wasn’t surprised once I finally looked at the traits of a Hufflepuff. They are known for their trustworthiness, loyalty, kindness, compassion, determination, and strong work ethic. I also took the patronus quiz on Pottermore and found out that my patronus is a Manx Cat. Those with this patronus are known for being fierce, calm under pressure, and good in difficult situations.”
Cindy is a geek when it comes to photography!! She says, “while I may not be the best at it, I do love taking pictures. It is relaxing and always a challenge. I enjoy taking photos for clients but also portraits of friends and family. I’d love to spend more time learning about cameras and new and different photography techniques. If I had all the money in the world I would spend a lot of it on lens and gear. I have a photography website and Facebook page under the name CAC Photography.”
Makenna geeks out over anything crafty, art, and design!! “I love scrapbooking so much sometimes I even make my own ‘products.’ Photography and documenting life is super important to me. I also will freak out over a good piece of charcoal.”
Lisa geeks out when it comes to maps! “I’m a total cartophile – I love maps! I’ve got framed maps in my house not to mention atlases and road maps galore. I even put a globe on our wedding registry (and got it).”
Arturo is a total gaming geek! He has a lot of different consoles ranging from the 90’s to today. You name it, he has played it! Some of his current favorites are: Red Dead 2, Fallout, The Last Guardian, and The Legend of Selda: Breath of the Wild
Alaina’s inner geek loves personal finance and travel planning with a specialty in cheap airfare hunting.
Who says you can’t geek out over running shoes? Cynthia loves to run and loves all different styles of shoes!
