Finding Balance: Travel with Chronic Illness

I don’t like to go into detail here very often when it comes to my health. You’re here for cool adventures and nerdy goodness, not to read about the fact that my body is broken. Aside from the unavoidable mention of it in my post about meeting Kevin Smith for the first time, I don’t think I really talk about it all that much here.

But I think it’s time I take a minute to explain my chronic illnesses and how my mortality brought about Wandering NerdGirl.

Clerks III – The Convenience Tour – St. Louis

Back in May, when I had a very Clerks weekend at Fan Expo, Kevin told me he’d bring The Convenience Tour to St. Louis and insisted I come to the show.

But little did the girls know, I was entirely motivated to get them to the show somehow – and the moment it was announced for the Fox in St. Louis, I waited patiently to purchase tickets.

Halloween Horror Nights 31

It had been six years since I’d been to my beloved Halloween Horror Nights. Six. Long. Years. I spent my time living through every photo and video I could find of the last few years events.

But finally, this year, I made it back. A week of Universal’s parks, two nights of Horror Nights, and one Unmasking the Horror Tour later, and I’m already eagerly awaiting announcements about next year’s event.
