In everyplace I’ve worked, I try my best to make my workspace my own (if I’m allowed). Recently, my company moved offices and now instead of sharing an office with my amazing girls I work with, I have my very own office. This is strange. I’ve never really had my own office and I don’t really know what to do with it.
So, I turned to the internet for guidance. I’ve found a couple of great ways to showcase your nerdiness in your workspace.

I’m always on the lookout for nerdy art. From Doctor Who Meets Disney to making my own Nerdcrafts, I like to collect and admire other people’s representations of their fandoms.
One of the things that my husband and I bonded over as we were dating and still well into our marriage is Pokemon. This silly tv show about collecting and evolving creatures has become a constant featured fandom in our lives. However, this is one of the only fandoms that is not displayed in some form on the walls of our house.Read More

One Ring to Rule Them All!
Lord of the Rings was one of the first movies that I ever remember analyzing. I never read the books, so I couldn’t over analyze it like I could with Harry Potter, but it was the first movie that I ever watched the special features of. Most movies I had watched the bloopers or deleted scenes, but never the interviews of featurettes. I became obsessed with featurettes after this movie. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched the featurettes of these movies. Enough to quote 70% of the interviews. After watching the featurettes,I would go back and watch the movie again and see what things I could pick out about how it was filmed or how the battles were choreographed. This initiated my adoration of special features.
In addition to that, Fellowship of the Ring was also one of the first and only movies I actually remember seeing multiple times. My friends and I would go the the discount theater in the mid afternoon and literally watch that movie until they closed (at least twice a weekend for 2 months). I can quote that movie from beginning to end adding the commentary my friends and I did (which we thought was HILARIOUS at the time, but probably just made the other patrons mad) without missing a beat.
