An Introduction of Sorts

It's not that easy... being geek.
   For the past few weeks I've sort of been struggling with what I like to call my 'writer identity'.  Writing has always been something that I've been rather passionate about, but for some reason there always seem to be that cork lodged in my brain that keeps me from fully spewing forth my full potential.  Sure, just about anyone can write, but only a fair few can actually be great at it.  Identity is a big problem that I've stumbled across on more than one occasion.  Somehow, a lot of my work has simply been lacking in uniqueness.  Which is why, when push came to shove, I decided to create this blog.

  This sort of requires finding my own voice.  I've started up many a blog before in the past, but I want to take this opportunity with this particular start to really 'dig deep' into my own introspection on all of the things that I'm passionate about.  Which is, to say, most everything that could be labeled as geeky.  If all goes according to plan, this will be an excellent outlet for myself and an interesting 'dissection' of how my own mind works for just about anyone else.

  One has to be rather cocky and arrogant to think that everyone wants to know what I'm thinking, but... sometimes I have some great things to say.  Sometimes.  Okay, maybe very rarely.  But maybe for every turd that I manage to pass off as an entry there will be some truly thoughtful pieces of review and philosophy.  Probably not.

  Welcome to The Geek Cadet everyone!  Leave comments so I can tell you why you're wrong!


  1. It's nice to see you getting out there and giving it a shot. I'll be following you from here on out.

  2. Thanks James! I'm actually aiming for updating fairly frequently on a number of different subjects, so look forward to it!
