Hello Everyone and Welcome,
I thought I would take this first post to introduce myself and tell you all a little about me because I look forward to getting to know all of you. Not to mention the best way to get to know someone is by finding things that you can relate to. Okay okay maybe it’s because my mom always taught me that in order to make friends you have to talk to people so I guess that might be the real reason. Anyway how about we get started?
My name is Lyndsay and I am 1/2 of the Ultimate GeekZone team. My friend Tyler and I decided with a spur of the moment decision that creating a YouTube channel would be something we would enjoy. We decided we enjoy all things nerdy and geeky so we created Ultimate GeekZone and it has just become this thing for us. We are working more and more on it everyday. Who knows where it will take us, all I know is I love what we are doing and getting to do some pretty nerdy things can’t be beat. While I would love to be able to film for YouTube and blog all day long the reality is I am an Early Childhood Educator. Yes that means I have made the crazy decision to work with children for the rest of my life, I was even insane enough to go to college for it. I have always worked with children and don’t get me wrong I do love it. Sometimes it can be trying, however for the most part it is a very rewarding career.
So that is my more professional stuff, now to something a little more personal. I am the oldest of three children, I was lucky enough to get both a brother and a sister, and I use to term lucky very loosely. No actually my siblings are both pretty great. My little brother is only about 20 months younger than I am so we grew up spending time together and as much as I won’t tell him this I am grateful to have him in my life. He has done a lot for me over the years. My little sister is 9 years younger than me and she was born with special needs so my relationship with her is much different than my relationship with my brother. She has been able to accomplish many things and I am very proud of everything she has been able to do. My mother is a single mother and the strongest woman I know. She is such an amazing person and I know I wouldn’t be the person I am today without her in my life. I am thankful each and every day that I get to call her mom.
Okay that was more background than I thought was going to happen which means it’s about time to move on to something else. What am I interested in? Well books and television and really anything nerdy. More specific? That I can do I think. My favourite book of all time is One of Us is Lying by Karen M McManus. I also enjoy reading Harry Potter and Ellen Hopkins. I have read so many books and my favourite always seems to be changing once I’ve found new books. My top movie is Identity and that has been a favourite for quite some time. I love horror movies and thrillers that make you think about what is going on. I’ve also been known to watch some pretty strange movies, really I’ll try any movie at least once. As for television there are a few I’m watching, though Teen Wolf is my favourite even if it is over. I also stay pretty current on the 100, Stranger Things, and Riverdale. There are a bunch more that I could list but those are the main ones. My favourite superhero is Batman, I even have a Batman tattoo.
Speaking of tattoos I have 6 in total so far, with Batman being the only really nerdy one but I do have plans to change that. I might be a little addicted to tattoos. Other than collecting tattoos there are a few other things that I collect. Funko Pop figures are the top of that collection list for me. I have a vast list of Funko Pops that I own and the list is always growing. I also collect books, certain Lego sets, mugs, pins, Living Dead Dolls and anything Batman (this whole Batman thing might be becoming a problem). I also recently got a puppy, which is named Logan (yes after Wolverine), so I collect Batman dog items which is a lot harder to find around my hometown.
So that’s me, or at least everything I can think of at the moment. If there is anything else that you really want to know all you have to do is ask. I’m pretty much an open book and I am way better at answering questions about myself than I am at coming up with stuff about me. If there is something we have in common let me know, I love talking to people who have something in common. And if we don’t have anything in common tell me a little something about yourself.
