Whoa whoa....anyone who would prefer to live in the early 1900s CANNOT describe themselves as "pretty boring" ; ) And last time I checked there weren't a lot of gypsies running about.
Welcome! ....loved the intro *nodding*.
welcome and seconded, i mean, anyone who randomly (and inadvertently) gives me bands to check out is pretty darn intersting.
welcome Chelsea! and wow...i appreciate your candor.
Hello Nerdfighters! :) My name is Jen and I am new to this website. I have recently fallen in love with the awesomeness that is John & Hank Green, and I figured that this would be a good place to share that love. :D
I enjoy many things, such as technical theatre, reading, writing, blogging (I am on Tumblr quite often), going to concerts, film-making, and various other things. I absolutely love Glee, Starkid, Fringe, Supernatural, and Harry Potter. :)
welcome Jen they are awesome and have created an awesome community.
Hi, my name is Sarah and I am new to Nerdfighteria. I feel like I am late to the party - I wish I'd've discovered John and Hank Green a few years ago. Now the community seems so large I don't know how to be a part of it. I also feel like I might be too old. I'm John's age, and it seems like most of the posts on here are by people in high school or college. Regardless, I definitely am a nerdfighter and it would be great to figure out how to meet other people who are not decepticons. Better late than never, eh?
I'm into things like LOTR, Red Dwarf, Freaks and Geeks, the X-Files, and all kinds of music and books. I'm a little bit of a luddite, hence the lateness to the party. Also I am a coffee geek, a psychology nerd, and a choir nerd. When I was in 6th grade I got an award for reading more than anyone in the entire school. That year I read every book in the YA fiction section of the local public library, as well as other novels. As a prize, they gave me a softball. This is my life.
If you are John's age how can you consider yourself to be too old? He's the biggest nerd of us all ; )
BTW, I'm old, too...so no worries *high five* : )
And I haven't heard someone mention Freaks and Geeks in a long time!
Freaks and Geeks! I just recently found that show and LOVE it.
A softball is no reward for such reading feats. They should have given you more books.
And huzzah, fellow choir nerd. I'd love to know how you deal with really disagreeable choir directors?
Hi Kady! Thanks for the welcome. Yes, Freaks and Geeks is so good! I now love everything that anyone from that show does. How I met your mother? Awesome. Even Cougartown!
Hmm. I believe that I have historically dropped out of choirs with bad directors because I just can't stand it. The question is, are you speaking of directors who are good at directing, yet foul in temperament, or is it horrible all around? Because I'm pretty good about tolerating a bad personality if the skillz are there. I usually come up with some story about why they got to be the way they are, find a way to empathize, and then, if the person is super irritating, minimize exposure time. But I can't deal with a director that isn't good at directing. I've had some really good ones too, so my standards are high!
