Greetings and Salutations! I am here to fulfill the purpose of this thread, and to introduce myself. What got me connected with watching the Vlogbrothers, and what led me to Nerdfighteria, was Episode #1 of Crash Course: Biology. The title caught my eye, and the rest is why I am here now.
I am more geek than nerd. I am very technically minded. I work with electronics, computers, and all other manner of things. I work on my own car, etc... I am a major Final Fantasy fan, though, to be quite honest. I am the worst fan ever. I have a wide love of the arts, of music, science, and of spirituality. I have a deep belief that I am both a student and teacher of life. More directly, of my life, to myself, and others by proxy.
Hi here Tyler, and welcome to the Ning! :D
How's your Nerdfighteria experience going so far? :)
Hi there Matylda, and welcome to the Ning! :D
What was your favourite of the Pixar films? :)
As always, DFTBA!
Hello~ my name is Rajandeep Brayana (call me Raj) and I'm currently a freshman at UC Berkeley. Got introduced to nerdfighters through scishow and Tumblr ^_^
Hello Raj, and welcome to the Ning! :D
How's your Nerdfighteria experience coming along? :)
How I got introduced: My history teacher instructed my class to watch John Green's Crash Course videos... yadayadayada... so I started looking into nerdfightaria!
How I'm a nerd: Um... I didn't really know I was until someone told me that getting 90+ marks in all classes, being obsessed with starwars, finding science, history, and poli sci fun, etc, are nerdy traits. I've never been really involved in any sort of "nerd social groups" because I'm too awkward and.. uh.. nerdy?
Tidbit about me: I am an amazing human being, and thoroughly I enjoy sarcasm. My goals in life include becoming a global dictator/creating a libertarian socialist society, depending on how I'm feeling about humanity at the time (how recently I've seen "Teen Mom") and confuse people by arbitrarily pretending to not be able to distinguish plants from humans.
Greetings, Andrew, and welcome to the Ning! :D
That's a pretty organized intro you got :p
As usual, DFTBA!

Hey there Sarah, and welcome to the Ning! :D
Aw, but chemistry gives us a lot o' fun stuff! (for moi it's explosions :p )
oh trust me i appreciate all that it does. just dont expect me to stay awake during a lecture on it. but shya! who doesn't love explosions!
Hi there. I'll attempt to do this properly because I suck majorly at autobiographies.
My name's Chaiyah, but most think it's too complicated so they go with Chai. I'm 18 and pursuing my bachelors in Psychology currently. I live in Trinidad and therefore lose myself in oceans.
It was recommended by a friend on an art site a few years ago that I read Looking for Alaska and it quickly escalated into my favorite book. From that moment I was completely taken by John Green's style and talent and so I started looking at the videos (my favorites are the Thoughts from Places series).
I'm not sure I'm really any particular thing, nerd included. But maybe my ability to remember fine details from books and the fact that I practically live in bookstores, have discussions about all things psychology and literature and music related, watched Harry Potter till I was able to quote it word for word and actually use nerdfighter 'slang' might work (:
So that's pretty much it. Looking forward to being awesome.
