Just between you and me, Geeks rock! Once we’re (yes we, with that post title I’m assuming you’re a geek too) passionate about something we unashamedly let the world know. We are true to ourselves, courageously standing out and inspiring others to do so as well. In many ways being Geeky is the root for my creativity. When you boil it down, that’s what nerds are—creators. It takes passion to make something new, to put some skin in the game and fuel your life with passion. (more…)
Oh, thus be it ever, when free men shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war’s desolation!
Blest with vict’ry and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer me must, when our cause it is just.
And this be our motto: ‘In God is our trust!’
And the star spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
One of my favorite songs to sing is our national anthem, The Star Spangled Banner. This is the case partially due to the feeling it evokes in me, and also because I’m a high note loving Soprano, 🙂 but mostly because of the reverence.

“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes … the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. … You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things. … They push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
