This Is My Confession

I have a confession to make. I am not a geek.

If we define geek as someone who likes comics, fantasy, and games, then yes, I am a geek. But if we define a geek as one who has a deep, extensive, almost obsessive knowledge in one particular thing, which I believe is the more correct definition of a geek, then I'm afraid I am unworthy of such a title. I, my dear friends, am a jack. I do not have great knowledge in one particular thing. I have just slightly more than average knowledge in many things.

I wouldn't be so arrogant as to call myself a jack of all trades. But I am a jack of many trades. Since I have succeeded in turning my hobby/interest into my full-time work, I am on a quest to find a new hobby. And what I'd like to do now is play on my interest in trying out new things, and try my hand at various hobbies or trades and posting them here on my blog.

So, allow me to start with what I challenged myself with last week.

Origami
The Challenge: Make an Origami Dragon
Materials needed: Origami paper
Personal Difficulty: Low
How I Fared: Passed!
Interest Level: 6/10

Got myself some pretty origami paper from Saizen. Then, I found a nice little site called Origami-Instructions.com that gave step-by-step instructions on how to make an origami dragon. The results are below. Took me a second dragon to make a cleaner version. But yes, took me two tries to come up with a dragon that I was happy with.

My Second Dragon.

My two dragons.
