It’s no mystery that I love Beyonce. I admire her. I respect her. I want to dance like her. There’s nothing she can’t do. Her songs fill up my playlists, but her life mottos are always in my head. That’s why I made these free printables for you, in hopes that her philosophy can help you get through every day.
You need both prints, which are 8 inches by 10 inches, but let’s start with part 1. DOWNLOAD WHO RUN THE WORLD PART 1 HERE.
I’ll admit that there’s nothing nerdy about Queen Bey, but if there’s any idea I can get behind, it’s the idea that all women need to have more confidence and power and bravery. So whatever other labels may swirl around us… please remember we have the power to run the world.
Science is humbling. It reminds me that we are only a speck in the universe. But, we are also IN the universe. And in turn, the universe is IN us. And that relationship has led to countless discoveries in history. I mean, just look at the beautiful record of that dynamic:
All these images come from vintageprintable.com in case you want to print them, frame them and create a gallery in your living room. You know, just be surrounded by the awesomeness that is genetics and space and history and existence.
Yup, I’m feeling esoteric today.
It’s shopping time. Gifting time. Which means it’s wrapping time. But you know what’s a thing that actually happens at least once per year at my house? Someone gets the wrong gift. Why? No gift tags. Well, not this year.
I love when the Doctor reveals that he knows the real name of a character from our shared cultural experiences. See Santa AKA Jeff. What a great line. Doctor Who writers are the best at it.
Need some Happy Wholidays wrapping paper? You can download last year’s Happy Wholidays paper right here. Print. Wrap. Smile. Repeat. And if you want to use that cute glittery star on your packages, just go to your Dollar Store - you can find 3 for $1.
Happy Wholidays my friends! Remember, it’s not always the most expensive or most fancy or most high tech gift that counts. Sometimes, it really is the thought.
I know it’s not nice to brag, but sometimes a nerdy girl must. The truth is, a smart girl is just better at things. Life things. Work things. Fun things. Friend things. Game things. Just things. And I’m not afraid to show that off to other people. That’s why I made this:
Post this at your desk. On your wall. At work. Whenever someone walks in, they’ll know not to mess with you. Instead, they’ll ask what you’re reading.
Did you know there are lots of other great free printables in the Being Geek Chic archives? Check out (and download or print!) all those here.
I love how history gets preserved on the web. Access to information, especially rare or long lost information, is easier than ever thank to the web’s ability to retain and catalog beautiful historical artifacts. The vintage movie posters on Free Vintage Posters is one such example of this.
Here’s 10 totally free, print quality science fiction movie posters:
You are reading this blog. Chances are… you’re a nerd. Let’s celebrate that. I had a conversation earlier this week about how just truly annoying it can be to be a real fan of non-sporting things. Most people don’t GET it, try as they might. Yeah, they love Breaking Bad. But do they know what it’s like to stay up until three in the morning on a work night because they recently discovered that the lead actor of your favorite show will be appearing in a new science fiction movie as the villain and therefore, it must be decoded and determined and the truth must be out there somewhere. KHHHHHAAAAAAAAAN.
Since Comic Con, I’ve been struggling with this. I know it’s completely ridiculous, but I truly have a hard time being friends* with people who DON’T GET IT. It’s weirdly lonely when you really could give a shit about the Bachelor, the Housewives, the X Factor or any of the hundreds of other shows people watch or just absorb as audio video anesthesia to distract from the misery of the non-nerd life.
But this blog always reminds me I’m among friends. We’re just all very, very spread out.
*Except from my real life friends who indulge me in all my insanities. You know I love you.
