About The Nerd

Oh hey, that’s me! I’m the nerd. Kasey, or, if you knew me from my “I’m scared of people on the internet!” days, Kim. In 2017 (the beginning bits) I’ll be 21 years of age, so legally old enough to be an adult. That’s kind of scary. Old enough to drink, but it’s okay. I still can’t drive… yay, anxiety!

If you’ve already read the “about the blog” page, you’ll see that I mentioned that part of the reason I’m actually starting this blog up is because of my anxiety stuff. Well, that’s true. According to my (absolutely wonderful) therapist and my psychiatrist, I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder, and some (undetermined in form) Depression. Woo! But, recently (as of… November? Or very end of October, I guess) I’ve been medicated for my anxiety and depression, and that’s greatly turned things around for me.  Not to say I don’t still struggle – oh, good lord, trust me I do – but it’s much easier on me now, because it’s like… things aren’t as… intense? I guess that’s the best way to put that. Also, to help facilitate my emotional turmoil, I have two Emotional Support Animals – a cat named Ash and a small Chihuahua puppy named Loki. I love them as if they’re my children, because they basically are.

However, just because my brain is broken in about a billion different ways – trust me, I’ve counted – I am still a pretty… well, not necessarily normal person, but a normal person. Ya feel me? I’m as normal as it gets, considering who I am as a person. I have a ton of obsessions – reading, video games, and writing, to name a few. I’ll probably post things on here about books I’m reading, games I’m playing. Maybe, if I really get back into writing, I’ll post some snippets here. Then again, this may get my desire to write out of the way. We will have to see how it goes.

I also love a lot of TV shows and movies, anything nerdy. Star Trek, Stargate, Supernatural, Doctor Who, The Flash, Arrow, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings… you see where I’m going with this. I also watch other shows, though. It really depends on my mood. So sometimes I may bring that up here, but ah.. I dedicate myself to my fandoms. I have a Lord of the Rings and a Supernatural tattoo, because I love both of them so much.

I’m also a college student, in case you were wondering! Well… sort of. I’m currently taking a semester off and working here in San Antonio, as my anxiety and depression + medical problems = I owe people money I don’t have, and the universe aligned to get me to change colleges and majors and take a break from school and focus on myself, which I’m kind of okay with. But when I return, I’ll be studying Computer Science. Woohoo!

And… that’s basically it, basically all I can think of to say about me. But yeah. If you want to know anything just ask.

Later guys! ❤
