Hello! I’m Jacie

Hello! I’m Jacie and if this is your first time here, welcome!! Let me tell you a little bit about myself.

I’m a 28 year old women. I’m a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, or LDS for short. I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science from Utah State University. I’m the fifth of nine children, and I’ve moved somewhere upwards of 24 times. No my dad is not in the military, we just move a lot. 😉 I’ve had heart surgery and four knee surgeries. But more importantly, I am a HUGE nerd!!

I am a Sherlock fan, a Hunger Games lover, a board games player, a superhero watcher and a Whovian.

But there are three nerd things I am obsessed with! I love absolutely everything to do with the Harry Potter and the Wizarding World. I’m in Slytherin, just in case you were wondering. 😀  I’m a huge Disney lover and have been since I was a little girl. I can drop a Disney quote in casual conversation with ease.

And I am a Comic Con addict! I have been attending Salt Lake City Comic Con since spring of 2015. They have two cons a year, FanX in the spring and Salt Lake Comic Con in the fall. I’ve written a couple blog posts on tips to enjoy attending the convention. Or how to put together a simple costume for Comic Con. I’ve been called the “Comic Con guru”.

I really want this to be a safe place for people to be nerdy! Growing up it wasn’t always the “cool” thing to be a nerd. I remember that I would get lots of funny looks from people when they found out that just how much of a nerd I really am. 🙂 But now I want to encourage people to embrace their inner nerd and be proud of who you are because you know what? It is COOL to be a nerd! I hope that you find all the amazing nerd-ness that you are looking for and that we become great friends! And welcome to Come to the Nerd Side, where it is cool to be a nerd!
