This weekend is one of the biggest weekends of the year for nerds of all kinds. It’s time once again for Comic-Con, and once again I’m sitting on my couch in New York wishing I was in San Diego, getting the inside scoop on my favorite movies and TV shows while seeing some of my favorite celebrities.
As I was scrolling through my Twitter feed, longing to be at Comic-Con, I started thinking of what other fandom-related things I would like to do at some point in my life. Some of these are realistic; others are slightly less likely to actually happen. I’m sure I’ll be adding more to this list as time goes on. That’s the beauty of being a nerd; there’s always something new to be passionate about.
Nerdy Girl Bucket List:
1.) Go to Comic-Con.
2.) Drink butterbeer at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
3.) Hug Zachary Levi and/or Nathan Fillion.
4.) See a midnight screening of a superhero movie. (I can’t believe I haven’t done this yet.)
5.) Have a marathon where I watch all six Star Wars films in order on the same day.
6.) Finish Anna Karenina.
7.) Visit Ernest Hemingway’s house.
8.) Have an essay published in a Smart Pop book.
9.) Go to one of those events at a movie theater where they show previous films in a series before the new one’s midnight screening. (I’d love to do this before Catching Fire, Captain America 2, or the next Spider-Man film.)
10.) Meet John Green.
11.) See one of Team Starkid’s productions live.
12.) Stay at the Magic Kingdom until it closes at 3 a.m. during Extra Magic Hours.
13.) Get my sister to watch Firefly.
14.) Own the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase One – Avengers Assembled box set, and watch all of those movies over the course of a weekend.
15.) Build my own lightsaber at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
16.) Go to the Toronto International Film Festival.
17.) See any of my favorite musicals on Broadway.
18.) Have breakfast at Tiffany’s.
19.) Own hardcover copies of all of the Harry Potter books.
20.) Attend a midnight release party for a book.
Now that I’ve shown you my Nerdy Bucket List, I want to see yours. What gloriously geeky things do you want to do in your lifetime?
