Hi! I just made this like 10 minutes ago so i am quite new! I just kept hearing about nerdfighters and i wanted to know what it was all about, so here i am!
What makes me a nerd?
I suppose it could be a bit to the fact that basically all i do is lay in my backyard and read.
But i dont really know, i hate saying things out loud (or i guess since im online, i mean typing) because it makes things so official. So if you want to message me, or somehow befriend me, or however it's said, Im pretty confused, so i could definitely use all the help i can get!
I'm a nerd because I like things, of course. ;) Actually, it all began with a book recommendation from my best friend. In October of 2008, I'd exhausted my love for David Leviathan and Sarah Dessen. At that point I'd been reading Harry Potter for seven years (it's ten now; exactly half my lifetime and I'm freaking out about it being "over").
Completely by chance, our library had a copy of Paper Towns donated by a student. Bestie was the first to check it out, and then I read it after I pried it from her grasp. In Margo Roth Spiegelman, I found a character unlike any I'd come across before: one who was a reflection of myself, and despite her enigmatic stoicism seemed very relatable. She became a projection of myself, and "finding" her was like finally coming home after a long vacation.
Admittedly, it's been only recently that I've started investigating the Vlogbrothers and Nerdfighteria, but I'm more comfortable identifying with quirkiness and a love of literature than I am with any other labels I've adopted over the years (as an anthropologist in the making, I quite like labels). So, that's my long-winded introduction. I hope some of you will take me under your wing. c:
p.s. I have Tumblr linked on my page if you'd care to investigate.
hey Carly. i feel your pain on the age vs appearance issue. might come in handy for you down the line though.
as for the school/Pancreatitis issue, i'm very sorry. although, class schedules at college and (in the case of smaller schools) professor's schedules can make things a lot more manageable. in the mean time, don't forget to be awesome!
I'm new, My name is Emily and I just recently started watching the Vlogbrothers, I thought I'd join the Ning. (:
I enjoy harry Potter, reading, writing, etc. Horses are my passion, and that's about it!
