I am new.
Hello introductory thread!
Not a new nerdfighter...just a new nerdfighter.com-er.
So...I'll be a college freshman at Western Washington University this fall, planning to double major in Environmental Science (emphasis in Marine Ecology) and Photography.
I like reading and being eco-smart/friendly and taking pictures and drinking tea and being mistaken for someone older than I am despite being determined to deny that I will be any older than seventeen for the rest of my life.
I am determined to marry someone who plays a brass instrument, has freckles, wears glasses, and can swing dance.
Ghosts don't exist, but aliens do, and so do the monsters under my bed.
My mother wishes I were less straight-edge. :D
are nerds really ever straight-edge? or are we just too nerdy to enjoy some things?
...anyway, welcome to the ning region of nerdfighteria Kady.
I question that first bit. Are we ever straight edge you ask? Uhm...:P
Thank you, Danno!
I like not liking not-straight-edgey things.
ok, lets see if i can articulate my point better tonight... i wasn't coming down on you Kady or anyone for their taste...but that's the thing, my understanding of straight-edge is that it requires a level of intentionality...that one who would love to 'get thrashed' commits not to. while, you yourself said you don't like such things...so are you really choosing to avoid them?
It's a little of both, maybe. I choose to avoid them because I don't like them...but my understanding of straight-edge was always one who isn't into such things, not one who intentionally avoids them despite the want.
anyway, not about to speak ill of those who do enjoy such activities...but i'd say you're about a million times more jokes for avoiding them, whatever their level of appeal to you.
Ah! Jokes, then.
I love a place where people say that.
Tally ho, comrades. I'm Gia. Nerd-wise, I enjoy steampunk, MST3k, cheesy horror films, science fiction, film-making, reading, philosophy, and writing. Aside from that I love to dance, be outside, hike, bike, play guitar, and sing. Yeah pretty generic hobbies there. Not really good at describing myself and who I am and what not. Um some random factoids... I'm a gypsy, I love folk-punk and gypsy jazz, I'm a huge fan of Primus and Foxy Shazam. If I could go back in time I would definitely live in the 1910-1920 era. Yeah, that's basically me. Pretty boring. Happy to be here with fellow nerdfighters! DFTBA.
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*.
