Meet Amber Lauver!

Happy Tuesday everybody! It's time to meet another amazing iggle, Amber Lauver! She was nominated as part of Geeks Run The World by yours truly :) Amber is the one who founded the vlogging iggles, and if it wasn't for being part of this amazing group of girls, I doubt I would be the same person that I am today, and I don't say that lightly. This small community of vloggers helped me to find my place in this bigger group of snail mail enthusiasts, and I feel that everybody else should get to know the fearless leader that is Amber. Without further ado, it's time to meet her!
TWW(s): As of this moment, what are your Top 5 Geek Loves?
Amber: My top geek love will always be history. I have such a passion for it and I will never stop enjoying history. I also have a love for reading and what I read depends on my mood, but I never don't want to read. Can I say Disney? Because I absolutely love Disney. Majority of my life as a movie viewer has been loving and crying over Disney movies. The Legend of Zelda is another geek love I have maintained throughout the years; it was my first non-jump start video game that I played and although I have never finished a single game, I love it very much. Trying to pick a fifth thing that I love always poses a challenge, but recently my number five pick would have to be roleplaying or board games. My friends and I have been playing all kinds of board games, from Mice and Mystic to Elder Signs; we've also been roleplaying Shadowrun weekly.

TWW(s): What would you say is your favorite board game and why?
Amber: It's a tie. The DC comic deck builder game because you get to be a DC hero and defeat villains which is really cool. Takenoko also because you get to play with a panda and a gardener and the pieces are all so colourful.

TWW(s): Describe a typical day in your life. Where do you go? What do you do?
Amber: A typical day in the life of Amber would include either work or school which sometimes are boring, but that's how life is. For my free time on the days I spend by myself, I watch all the things on Netflix while reading or playing my DS. On days I spend with my friends, we play Shadowrun or other board games or go on outings to the bookstore.
TWW(s): What is the #1 thing that you're currently obsessed with right now? Something that you're just dying to fangirl/gush about?
Amber: I've been obsessing over the book Red Rising by Pierce Brown. It's such a fantastic book that I just recommend any chance I get.

TWW(s): Reading any good books right now?
Amber: Always. I've also begun reading Y: The Last Man because my local comic book shop had it as its Girls Only comic book club monthly read. It's such a fantastic series.

TWW(s): Out of all of the videos posted by the vlogiggles, including your own, do you have a personal favorite?
Amber: I have two favorite videos. The introductions, because that's when everyone was well introduced, and I am very partial to Joanna's video about why she plays Bards because that really made my love for roleplaying turn into a roleplaying.
TWW(s): When did you first become an iggle and how did you originally hear about the IGGPPC?
Amber: I joined the IGGPPC shortly after Kristina Horner uploaded her video to YouTube because it honestly seemed like it would be a really fun experience

TWW(s): What is your favorite part of the snail mail process? Writing the letter, decorating the envelope, licking the stamp, etc.
Amber: Favorite part of the mail process would be putting the envelope into the mailbox. It's the victory of knowing someone is actually going to receive it instead of it remaining unsent.
TWW(s): Describe your favorite moment as an iggle so far.
Amber: My favorite moment as an iggle would probably be when people showed interest in there being a vlogiggles and the first introduction videos for the group. Although we don't upload anymore (or rarely) it will always be my favorite iggle moment. My favorite iggle memory was from the DC meetup in 2013 where I got to meet two fellow vlogiggles.

TWW(s): When did you start to first self-identify as a geek?
Amber: I started self-identifying as a geek as soon as I had heard the word.

TWW(s): Take a look at the Iggle manifesto and tell us which phrase from it is your favorite as well as which phrase you would like to most apply to yourself.
Amber: "I will never stop learning." That phrase applies to me because I believe that to be true.I do not want to ever stop learning something new.
