Hello all! Long time no see. You might wonder where I have been but this blog is called Geeky Mommy, so I bet you can guess! That’s right; I have been busy being a mom to a 4 year old girl (Remy) and a 1 year old boy (Logan), oh and an 8 month old puppy (Thor) who is probably a bigger baby than the children combined. I also went back and finished my MBA and now work as a Business Analyst, which I love! We bought a house in June in the school district we really wanted to be in and we plan on making the attic a play/game room this spring and into fall probably.
On the geeky side of my life I have been playing WoW again (and writing my WoW blog) and it has been my primary game. I have also played Hearthstone, Diablo 3, Civ 5 (amazing still to this day), and Portal 2. My husband and I even were dabbling in table top role playing games again with friends which systems included World of Darkness and a system that a friend made up. Board games have also made a big appearance in our lives where we have been playing Dominion, Thunderstone and others. We have also played some more Magic and finally got into Warhammer (wood elves for me of course). Plus I have read a massive amount of books and seen an equally massive amount of movies. Some of these items I will be talking about in the next few weeks.
I am looking forward to talking about books, movies, games, and babies!
I am starting up ending with a movie quote again! Do you know this movie title? – “My mommy always said there were no monsters – no real ones – but there are.”
PS – notice anything geeky about the names of our kids?
Welcome to The Geeky Mom Blog! My name is Sarindre. I am 24 and currently 22 weeks pregnant with my first child, a little girl due Janurary 27th. I am also an avid gamer, reader, and movie watcher, just to name a few hobbies. I decided to start a blog for the geeky moms out there where I could discuss video games, books, and the like along with focus on pregnancy and being a mom. I also write a Resto Druid Blog (Through the Eyes of a Tree) for World of Warcraft but I thought I would like to have a general blog where I could talk about more games, books, and babies!
Right now, I work a job as a financial analyst. It is a temporary job that I am for sure not in love with, but I will do so that I can save up some money. My husband works as a game tester for a gaming company here in Austin Texas (I know lucky right!). I am planning on going back to school here next fall. I have a bachelers in Psychology with a minor in Sociology and am about 15 credits into the MBA program. However, recently my husband and I moved from California to Texas and I have to switch schools, losing all but 6 of those credits. I am not sure what I would like to go to school for now. I may switch back to Psychology or even go to something new!
Here are some of the things I am taking part in currently:
- World of Warcraft (Playing a Resto Druid)
- Bioshock 1
- Final Fantasy 13
- Halo Reach
- Starcraft 2
Books Reading Now –
- Wicked by Gregory Maguire
- The Eye of the World. Book 1 of The Wheel of Time Series by Robert Jordan
Books Just Finished –
- Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin
- Something Blue by Emily Giffin
- Baby Proof by Emily Giffin
I will be writing about each of these topics in the upcoming weeks in the form of book and game reviews and along with adding some baby news and pregnancy talk.
So join me here at The Geeky Mom to talk about all things geek!
