Ladies in Music: The Nerdy Girls Mix

So for this round of Ladies in Music, I bring to you not only music I recommend and enjoy but music that the other Nerdy Girls recommend and enjoy! And with varying preferences comes varying selections, so there is really no rhyme or reason to this list. Enjoy! Shay Kendall […]

Empowering Women: I’m a Fan of Nerdy Girls

Shay, our blog coordinator, asked the writers of the NG blog to write about being a fan. A fan of anything, basically write about what you love and can’t wait to tell people about or something you just will not shut up about. ‘That’s a great idea Shay!’, I said […]

Om-ing out of the Office Chair Blues: I’m a Fan of YogoGlo

First and foremost, I’m a fan of yoga. I have a desk job. I am at my computer eight hours a day at the very least. About eight years ago, I started to suffer from symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. When I mentioned this to my supervisor, he said, “I […]

Coding and Exploding: I’m a Fan of Kendall

Have you met Kendall? If not, it’s a shame, because she’s about to leave Oklahoma City to move to Tulsa. As such, she will be joining the likes of Nerdy Girls Tulsa. Alas, our loss, their gain. As we say “see you later!” but not goodbye, Ofi, Amanda, and Shay […]

All the Way from Themyscira: I’m a Fan of Wonder Woman

Here is a (loose) interpretation of my most recent email from our Lady and Mistress, Shay: “Your mission, should you choose to accept it (not that doing otherwise is an option, but whatevs) is to write a blog post adhering to the following theme: Being a fan.  Write about a […]

Ladies in Music: Saved by Jenny and Tori (Or Getting Out of a Moz Rut)

This post originally appeared on Nerds and Nomsense One of my tell-tale signs of stress is high consumption of what the xm radio calls “classic alternative,” i.e. Depeche Mode, The Cure, and The Smiths. Y’know, the dark side of pop music. When I was in my busiest and most stressful […]

How (Not) to Blog

Always wanted to be a blogger but don’t know where to start?  Me too!!  If you figure it out, feel free to shoot me a message.  Until then, here’s my process, for better or (mostly) worse. Blithely volunteer to contribute content to a blog with little knowledge of expectations, process, […]

Guest Post: Yes ALL Women

This is not a good time to be a woman. And the sad thing is, it’s probably the best time to be woman that there has ever been. There is little that makes me angrier than men who blindly hate women. Yes, men can be mistreated by women just like […]

Nerdy Careers: Reasons to be a Special Education Teacher

When Shay suggested that I write a post about my career, my response was to ask if she really thought it was a nerdy career! (Editor’s note: Teachers by default are nerds!) I really love my job, and I’d love to share that passion with all you nerdy girls out […]

Why I Yelp (and You Can Too!)

One of my eternal struggles is working on writing. Now, as a former English major, writing has been something enjoyable for me, but finding the time to consistently write outside of a mandatory assignment is a challenge. So last autumn, I decided to kick-start myself into writing more by contributing […]

Ten Nerdy Reasons to #StopTheBeautyMadness

Ever heard of #StopTheBeautyMadness? It’s a new campaign whose goal is to change the social discourse on beauty. To give you a small idea of what they’re about, here’s a quote from their page: “There Comes A Time When You Have Simply Had Enough. Enough of the impossible standards. Enough […]

Nerdy Things to Do in OKC

Even though I have lived in Oklahoma for almost 2 years, it’s still hard for me not to consider myself “new” to OKC. I still raise my eyebrows when waitresses tell me they don’t have sweet tea, “home” still feels like Cary (North Carolina’s equivalent of Edmond except with much […]
