To me, being a geek is all about bridled enthusiasm. No shame, no restraint, just pure excitement about what you love! Diving into what you love, embracing it, living it, expanding it.
I want you to own your inner geek! Don’t shy away from the things you love because it’s uncool to be excited. Put your heart and soul into your interests, find what excites you and make it a huge part of your life! You may get some weird looks but you’ll also feel like you really belong to something. This wallpaper is an reminder about how amazing embracing your inner geek feels.
Fill out the form to receive desktop and mobile wallpapers with a portion of Simon Pegg's quote on it and be reminded to never 'play it cool' again!
Being a geek is all about being honest about what you enjoy and not being afraid to demonstrate that affection. It means never having to play it cool about how much you like something. It’s basically a license to proudly emote on a somewhat childish level rather than behave like a supposed adult. Being a geek is extremely liberating.
- Simon Pegg
Hi! I'm Mandy Bee and that's me to the left wearing a Doctor Who-inspired scarf I designed and knitted up myself. I never thought I would become a knitter! I was a geeky kid who grew up in Florida and spent most of my time on a computer. Then, as an adult, I got a job making things on the computer (web design, if you’re curious).
One day I stumbled onto this cute stuff called “amigurumi”. I squeed and decided I needed that cuteness in my life. I bought yarn and stumbled through learning how to crochet with books and YouTube. I fell in love with making real things with my hands. There is just something really cool about being able to say you made something yourself! My love for crochet evolved into an even bigger love for knitting and here I am, 10 years later, designing my own knitwear from scratch.
I dream of a geeky world where everyone is super excited about their interests and shares that joy with everyone around them by making things. I want knitters to realize they’re not just ‘knitting a fandom project’, they’re embracing the love they have for their fandom and bringing more joy to the world. Every bit of happiness you create for yourself creates that much more for the world. <3
