I’ve been having a really fun time getting into vlogging! It’s really weird and awkward at first if you’re filming in public so I’m still adjusting to that but I love having the footage to look back on afterward so I’ve been making a concerted effort to vlog whenever I’m on the go. Two weekends ago, I had a really exciting string of days so I combined footage from Jonathan of Geekscape’s Pokemon Go meetup, PotterCon at Irving Plaza in NYC and National Book Lover’s Day at Barnes and Noble with Monica. At PotterCon I finally got to meet Jordandene who is a super lovely person and she filmed a little clip with me for my video! There’s also a ton of Harry Potter cosplay (the winner of the contest’s cosplay is one of my favorite I’ve ever seen) and a mini book haul.
My Hamilton obsession is still going strong. I’m so happy that earlier this week Lin’s revolutionary musical broke records by getting 16 Tony nominations and I sincerely hope that they win each and every one. I had a slow year when it came to seeing Broadway shows last year (I usually see a ton but I think I only saw 3?) but Hamilton was among those and I feel so blessed that I had the opportunity to see it live. I’ve been trying to relive the experience ever since (ie. listening to the soundtrack non-stop & singing the songs and the shows praises to all who will listen) so when Lin’s Hamiltome debuted in April, I waited eagerly for the mailman to arrive each day and deliver my precious. Also in April, Jordandene’s shirt of the month was Hamilton themed so that was an insta-buy! The charcoal tank features a Schuyler sisters quote “Looking For A Mind At Work,” so I obviously had to strike a Schuyler sister pose for one of my photos. Unfortunately this shirt is no longer available, but Jordan’s shop is full of other treasures. If you enjoy representing your geeky side without sacrificing your style you’ll love all of her designs! I can’t even tell you how many others I own and I wear them ALL THE TIME. This month’s shirt is Kurt Vonnegut themed and Jordan also released a collab shirt with my 5 Fandom Friday co-creator Megan from The Nerdy Girlie!
