Hello readers and fellow bloggers!
I’ve made the executive decision to take the month of May off.
Like everyone else, I’ve been struggling with self isolating. With the news that I may be working from home until the end of summer, I’d like to use my personal time to get my things in order to make a more permanent place to work more comfortably. I also need to focus on some self care and get my new schedule settled so I can be my best self for my family and all of you.
I do have good news though. I will continue to post videos to YouTube every Friday and every other Wednesday as my mental health permits. My patrons recently voted on a new video idea that will be going up some time this month so keep those YouTube notifications on! I also still have a lot of awards and tags to do, and I will get to them when I come back in June!
Thank you all for understanding. In order to be my best self, I have to take a break. See y’all in June.

Pinkie at Pinkie’s Paradise was kind enough to nominate me (forever ago) for the Bee Love Award! Thank you so much, Pinkie! This is indeed an award I haven’t been nominated for yet. 😉 Pinkie is the sweetest person you’ll have the pleasure of meeting, and her blog is really awesome too! You might like her posts on anime or gaming, but there’s plenty around to read for everyone. You should really check out Pinkie’s blog (and tell her I sent ya)!

Welcome to my April 2020 recap! I hope you all are well as we continue to self isolate and get used to our new normal. It’s been rough on most people, myself included, so let’s keep hanging in there. We made it through March, and now we’ve made it through April… With the first week of May upon us, let’s take a look at the month of April here on A Geeky Gal!

If you haven’t heard of OWLS before, it stands for Otaku Warrior for Liberty and Self-Respect. We are a group of content creators promoting the acceptance of everyone regardless of their disabilities, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and religion. Each month with the help of pop culture, literature, and other forms of media, we explore real-world topics through these online tours, sharing personal experiences and analyzing pop culture.
If you want to know more about OWLS, you can take a look at the blog here.
If you had told me that I would be working from home self isolating for what could be almost half the year back in January, I wouldn’t have believed you. I had so much to look forward to: Animal Crossing in March, a BTS concert in June, seeing family and friends for holidays… Even going thrift shopping has been cancelled as we all try to stay inside for everyone’s health. But that’s exactly what happened. Plans were cancelled. Life feels cancelled, but at least I still had Animal Crossing to look forward to in March… A light in the darkness for most gamers and “non-gamers” alike.

Heather at Just Geeking By has created wonderful and unique prompts for Sundays! There are a few other sites out there who post weekly prompts, but I have to say Heather’s are by far some of the most unique and imaginative that I’ve read. I’m really excited to make Seriously Geeky Sundays a staple here on the blog! See the prompts here!
Today’s prompt is about Creativity. Heather says that today is World Intellectual Property Day. As such, she wanted to promote creativity and the creative side of geeky fandoms! As a 3D modeler and graphic designer, I am super excited to dive into these questions so let’s get started!
If you’ve lurked around on my blog long enough, you’ll know I’m not a huge fan of gore unless it’s Walking Dead (and I think I’ve just been desensitized to it to be honest). If I told you I enjoyed watching Castlevania… you’re probably scratching your head right about now. But let me tell you why someone who turns away at animated blood and hides when a body get sliced in half actually loves this video game adaptation so much.
