Meet the Geek

"Never forget who you are, for surely the world won’t. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armor yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you."

Here's the long and the short of it: I'm a geek. A Star Wars, Harry Potter, J.R.R. Tolkien, Song of Ice & Fire, Battlestar Galactica, Jurassic Park, Walking Dead, comic book-loving geek. (Along with several other things that I won't get into in this introduction.)

As for the saga part of my blog name...I will write - fairly often - about my past, and what is a saga if not a history? Not to mention that sagas have their origins with the Scandinavian and Germanic races - and I descend from both of these (recently/directly, mind you).

Should you choose to be a part of my ramblings, I can only say thank you and I hope you enjoy :)


  Books: Harry Potter series, Song of Ice & Fire series, Gone with the Wind, Saying Yes: In Defense of Drug Use, Sense & Sensibility, Pride & Prejudice, The Poisonwood Bible, Lullaby (Chuck Palahniuk), The Picture of Dorian Gray, The Case for Christ, Scarlett (sequel to Gone with the Wind)

Movies: Lord of the Rings (the entire trilogy), Star Wars (mainly IV, V, & VI), Jurassic Park, The Ten Commandments, Gone with the Wind, Pirates of the Caribbean (I like them all but the first one was definitely the best by far), Sense & Sensibility, Pride & Prejudice (the 2005 BBC version), Big Fish, Anchorman, Wedding Crashers, The Hangover, X Men (again, all of them...but most notably the first and second ones)

TV Shows: Battlestar Galactica, The Office, X Files, Gilmore Girls, Golden Girls, Parks & Recreation, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones

Music: It's actually really difficult for me to name favorite musicians, because to be honest I often end up getting tired of the ones I have loved at one point or another. But some longstanding favorites are Muse, The Beatles, Daft Punk and Garth Brooks.

"You're born, you live and you die. There are no do-overs, no second chances to make things right if you frak 'em up the first time. Not in this life anyway. Like I said, you make your choices and you live with them. And in end you are those choices."
