18 Jan Welcome to The Imaginerd!
For many years, I was known online as “jeromius”. Heck, not just online, everywhere.
The thing about nicknames is that they are given to us, and sometimes we adopt them, and cherish them, and accept that’s who we are. And then there comes a day where you wake up and realize that it’s not who you are anymore. That was the case recently when I started looking back on my past online and came to the realization that I’m a very different person today than I was 5, 10, even 20 years ago. It was time for a change.
It sounds funny and cliché, but it really did come to me in a dream.
Imagination + Nerd.
I guess that it’s also a subtle nod to the Imagineers who I have the opportunity to work with, I’ve always looked up to these people with awe and what they are able to accomplish and deep down, someday, I hope that I can become part of that world.
But until that day arrives, I’m going to embrace the two forces that drive me in this world – my imagination and my overwhelming pride of being a full-blown nerd.
This site is my online presence, but I feel like I need to move away from talking about technical mumbo-jumbo and take a different approach.
What I hope to accomplish is making this a place where I can discuss the things going on in my life and around me, getting back to that place where I can share the magic that I experience on a daily basis, and also share all those bits and bobs that I find interesting with all things nerdy.
So, what will this site be? It will still be my go-to place for posting what I’ve been working on, but I’m going to make it more personal as well. I want to try and get back to writing posts regularly and sharing them with my friends. I’m looking to connect with new people who are like me. And lastly, I want to just have fun again.
I’m embracing my nerdiness. I welcome you to join me on my journey.
