Geeky Chic-y | My Weird Style

Geek culture may be trending right now but being a geek wasn’t always cool. So many of us grew up shunned for our geeky-ness. Here’s the thing though: ⠀
Whether you realize it or not, you were always great.⠀
👓⠀
You may have been told you’re odd, you’re quirky, you’re awkward. (And not in an endearing sort of way either.)⠀
👓⠀
I don’t think that’s right though. ⠀
👓⠀
If you ask me, you just see life from a different perspective. You swim against the current. You defy social norms. ⠀
👓⠀
You’re Charmed.⠀
👓⠀
You’re a Charmed Geek like me. ⠀
👓⠀
With my blog, CharmedGeek, I share my love of anime, books, comics, and manga. I create a safe place for us geeks to celebrate ourselves – especially Blerds. ⠀
👓⠀
I ask that you Stay Weird & Dare To Differ. Keep being you. And, whatever you do, don’t lose your charm. ⠀

Fun story about this outfit. ⠀
💙⠀
I bought these boots about 3 or 4 years ago.⠀
💙⠀
When I got them, everyone said they were weird and not fashionable (combat boots weren’t in style but they’ve kind of always been my thing). ⠀
💙⠀
I bought these overalls about 8 months ago. I chose each of those patches individually over the course of several months and put them on one-by-one (and I plan to add more).⠀
💙⠀
I’ve been told my love of kiddy stuff (like unicorn patches) was unbecoming of a grown woman. My overalls also weren’t considered fashionable.⠀
💙⠀
And don’t get me started on this pink wig! This pink wig always leaves me feeling fierce but it makes plenty of people uncomfortable when I walk in the room. ⠀
💙⠀
Not everyone I run into can see my vision, but that doesn’t stop me. ⠀
💙⠀
I know there is beauty in what I see. ⠀
💙⠀
I know that just because what I find fabulous is a little left of center doesn’t mean I’m not right. Nor does it mean the naysayers are wrong.⠀
It just means we’re different. And different is okay. ⠀
💙⠀
In fact, different is beautiful. ⠀
💙⠀
What’s crazy is, when I put it all together, people not only get me, they embrace me. ⠀
💙⠀
When I show someone just my wig, or just my makeup, or just my shoes, they have so many negative things to say. But then they see it all together and say, ⠀
💙⠀
“Okay girl, I see you!” ⠀
💙⠀
And that, ladies and gents, is why you don’t need the world to validate you. ⠀
💙⠀
Most people in this world only hold on to one piece of you at a time. ⠀
💙⠀
But when you look in the mirror, you have the advantage of seeing who you were, who you are, and who you’re working to become – all at the same time.⠀
You aren’t just a piece, you’re a puzzle made up of a million pieces. This world has no clue what that final picture is. But you do. ⠀
💙⠀
If you learn to embrace yourself, you’ll find that you hold all the pieces and, as you piece them together, the puzzle gets easier and easier, the answers come quicker, the picture comes together. ⠀
💙⠀
So, pick up your pieces, hold your head high, and recognize the beauty of your mystery. Stop waiting for someone to get it, just put that outfit together.

A bathtub full of plastic, blue balls with Charmed Geek sitting on top.

Surrounded by a sea of difference⠀
🛀⠀
the hues of blues lure me in. ⠀
🛀⠀
Do I let my head spin, ⠀
🛀⠀
Or do I dive deep?⠀
🛀⠀
Do I cave as I’m reminded, day in day out,⠀
🛀⠀
“You’ll never be in,⠀
🛀⠀
You’ll always stand out.”⠀
🛀⠀
Or do I bathe in my shades,⠀
🛀⠀
do I relax into me, ⠀
🛀⠀
do I sink into peace, ⠀
🛀⠀
do I let me love me?⠀
🛀⠀
🛀⠀
Yeah, ⠀
🛀⠀
I think I’ll Just lay back and let the waves wash over me. ⠀
🛀⠀
Cleanse me of rejection,⠀
🛀⠀
Swim toward my reflection,⠀
🛀⠀
Live life fully embracing my Charmed Geek.
