What I download goes down dramatically as my access increases! I downloaded a lot of stuff when I was living in a rural area before Netflix started. Now that Netflix streaming is available, as well as Amazon Prime Instant, I download dramatically less. I live in an even more remote area now where video stores are nearly 30 miles away and Redbox is almost 20. The closest movie theater is a crappy 3 screen that barely shows what I want to see. Even PBS is impossible to get where I live, so most of what I do download is currently airing TV shows. And I know that my access compared to that in other parts of my state, much less the country, is great.
I would actually pay for HBO shows if they offered them per season or per ep. They don’t, so I pirate. Getting cable to watch just one thing is waaaay too expensive.
A lot of us have realised that in being a nerd, or being a geek… it’s not about what you love; it’s about how you love it.
So there’s going to be a thing in your life, and I don’t know what it’s going to be. it might be sports, it might be science, it might be reading, it might be fashion design, it might be building things, it might be telling stories or taking pictures. it doesn’t matter what it is… The way you love that, and the way you find other people who love it the way you do is what makes being a nerd awesome…
The defining characteristic that ties us all together is that we love things. And some of us love Firefly, and some of us love Game of Thrones… Some of us love Star Trek, or Star Wars, or anime, or games, or fantasy, or science fiction. Some of us love completely different things, but we all love those things so much that we travel for thousands of miles, we come from all over, in some cases all over the world, so that we can be around people who love the things we love, the way we love them, and that’s why being a nerd is awesome.
And don’t let anyone tell you that the thing you love is a thing you can’t love. Don’t you ever tell anyone that you can’t love that “that’s for boys” you have to love this, cause you’re a girl, you find the things that you love and you love them the most that you can.
And listen this is really important - I want you to be honest, honourable, and kind. And I want you to work hard because everything worth doing is hard, and I want you to be awesome.
