Hello, there.
I found myself to be a Nerdfighter a bit after my friend showed me Hank and John's videos a little while ago. I'm 15-ish, and I live in Michigan (exciting, I know). I don't write, I don't sing, I don't dance, I play no instrument, I don't have much that makes me different, but I don't find myself boring at all.
I tried to read the HP series when I was in second grade, but couldn't get past the first page, so I quit. Feeling like a poser for so long, I just picked up Sorcerer's Stone yesterday, and I plan on reading it all before the first half of Deathly Hallows comes out in theatres.
I don't watch Doctor Who, even though its apparently the greatest thing to come out since the toaster. I just don't find myself getting into it.
I plan on starting a youtube series soon about the Slender Man, but thats about it for my summer plans and youtubage.
I love Mountain Dew.
That is all.

Hey, I'm Sam. I'm originally from California, but currently in Nashville (specifically, Spring Hill, TN).
I found Nerdfighteria through John Green's books, Looking for Alaska being the one that sealed the deal.

What makes me a nerd?
I am obviously a book-nerd type.
I'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, I'd rather be thoughtful than vapid, and I believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan.
I am guilty of being over-enthusiastic on occasion.
I have to use correct grammar, even on the internet and over text messaging. I hate "IM speak."
I appreciate literature, art, music, and deep conversations.
I'm sure there are many other things I could add to this list, but frankly, I don't feel like typing it all out.
I agree that chatspeak should be slaugtered :D, and yet I use far to many smileys, probably hypocritical of me. Hi Sam, I am Alex and I think you will find many over-enthusiastic people on here, including myself. I hope you enjoy using the ning, feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
A "boom worm", eh? Jokes.
Who's your favourite Doctor?
Hello Claudia (sorry I have no accents on my keyboard). I'm moving to London in Sepetember and I don't know anyone there also. Maybe we should talk and maybe meet... I'll be living near Hyde Park.
I'm also moving to London in September! Apparently all the cool people are then ;)
I'm Lori. I was introduced to Vlogbrothers through a friend's FB link, and then realized I knew who John Green was because I'm a YA-lit nerd. I'm an adjunct English instructor at a university in Detroit; I usually teach either remedial writing or freshman comp. I love teaching, and I particularly love first-year college students. I have two kids, a 4-month-old daughter whose most noteworthy trait so far is being so enormous that my husband and I sometimes wonder if she's a tall tale, and a six-year-old son who is the funniest, coolest little person ever. He's like to be a plumber or a paleontologist--or both--but we're hoping for him to marry into money, preferably into the Pitt-Jolie dynasty. I live in Detroit, which, once you get used to its post-apocalyptic feel, is a really amazing city. I'm 32, so I'm old.

I'm mainly a book-type nerd. I'll read pretty much anything, although my favorites are YA fiction, science fiction (particularly feminist sci fi), theology, and history. My husband thinks I'm a nerd because I know nothing about popular culture. That is true--my pop culture knowledge stops around 1996, and now I'm the old person who's like "So who is this Lady Goo-Goo I keep hearing about?"--but he thinks calculus books are appropriate beach reading so I really don't think he should talk.

I read John Barnes's Tales of the Madman Underground last month (very good book, if a bit too long), and the narrator describes one of the characters as looking "like an English professor that wanted to be a folksinger, which is to say, a dork who wanted to be a bigger dork." I realized that was probably a pretty apt description of me.
Hey Everyone I'm new to Nerdfighters and my name is Rick Scotte.

I am from Wisconsin where it is so cold in the winter and too mosquitoey in the summer to be anything other than a nerd. I use to play World of Warcraft when I was at the height of my nerdiness , but I love reading fantasy book likes Harry Potter etc. I play a lot of video games mostly rpgs. I am Star Wars and LOtR fanboy and obsessed with YouTube.

I have recently made a channel on YouTube about funny conspiracy's I've made up or read about. (zombies-dolphins) I am also currently writing a fantasy novel and hope to be published though I know that will take a lot of work. If anyone is interested about it message me. I plan on making videos on YouTube about my struggle to write and get published!

Have an awesome eternity fellow Nerdfighters!
I am Spiffy Dino, and I am a new nerdfighter. yay.
Hi, I'm Lin. I really don't know what to write except for I'm new to the ning. I'm afraid to say that I am one of the typical nerdfighters that started watching the vlogbrothers because of Accio Deathly Hallows, but I've been a devoted 'fighter ever since. There's too much I'd like to say in one post, so you'll probably be seeing me around the forums (unless I completely forget about this). I literally have like 0 friends here so feel free to message me if you want to be friends. I'm looking forward to meeting tons of new and interesting nerdfighters here!

dftba :)
