Hey there I'm Meghan. Started watching VlogBrothers videos a few years ago and really liked it but kept forgetting there was a social network related to it ha :) My main nerdy things would be Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings probably. I also really love the Percy Jackson series, especially the new part that has Roman mythology as well. Music is sweet, I love wizard rock and everything from Ke$ha to Metallica. I kind of just love a lot of different things, which makes me a nerd by default! I also greatly enjoy other nerdy people, because we are awesome and not afraid of being enthusiastic. Starting college in the spring semester, pretty jazzed about that. Not sure what I want to study yet. That's a decent summary I guess? WHAT UP WORLD.
Hello Maeghan, and welcome to the Ning! :D
Liking the site so far, I hope? :)
Omg, I absolutely love the Percy Jackson series and The heroes of olympus :3 Havent read Mark of Athena yet though :P
loving too many things to name...sure none of us have any idea what that's like :D
seriously though, welcome Meghan
Hello Ruby, and welcome to the Ning! :D
I don't think you need to be reminded, but what the heck, DFTBA! :p
I'f been watching stuff on youtube for some years now, and just a couple of weeks ago i stumbled upon the clip about "sexuality", witch i really liked. From there i just starting watching a lot of the Vlogbrothers videos, and nerd fighting just seamed to be this thing that had been there for a long time, and should have been a part of my life a lot earlier. So it appealed to me to be a nerd fighter for a number of reasons:
A. I really like science, some gaming, and have always felt comfortable around nerds, and i see myself as a nerd. I feel like i was raised to be a nerd by my father, since all of my nerdyness comes from him. But on the other hand, i have a lot of not nerdy at all friends, hobbies and lifestyle. Most of my girlfriends today don't share my nerd passions, so it is great for my to have a place to go all nerdy in.
B. It feels so nice, and it is full of niceness. People caring, warm hearts and good intension. Sometimes i've been doubting that people will do anything for other than their own gain, but this makes me belief in people again.
C. Since English is a second language for me, i love how nerdfighteria teaches me new words, and especially because Hank and John doesn't slow down at any point.
Jeg glæder mig meget til at udforske denne nye ø af muligheder på nettet :)
Kram, Signe Cathrine
