weird, but this is the second time in as many days i've mentioned it. but Greek kicked my butt. turns out i'm pretty good at transliteration, and i'm ok at translating, but doing both at the same time is painful...says the guy who'd still like to really learn Quenya/Sindarin one day.
...anywho, welcome to Nerdfighteria Rini!
Yeah, for graduate school, I have to know Ancient Greek, Latin, French and German.
German is the only language I haven't taken yet XD Yay for Polyglot Nerdfighters!
Ha, I wanna learn Sanskrit sooooo yeah XD
Hi and welcome!
I am also crap at FPS. I sort of freak out when I'm being shot at, and can't figure out where the fire is coming from. However, I really love what I term "first person bashers", like Morrowind and Oblivion. Have you given those a try?
Are you published, and is there somewhere we can read what you've written?
Are you in a set kingdom?
Hi Nerdfighters! My name is Alex and i am from England. I enjoy reading, listening to and creating music. I also plan to start a book review YouTube page with my girlfriend soon. I look forward to becoming part of the community. Oh before i finish, does anyone want a Google+ account ?
Hi, my name is Catherine, I'm twenty years old, and I am a nerd(fighter).
I like to spend as much time as possible enjoying words in one way or another. Sometimes I do this by reading, sometimes by writing, or sometimes, if a word strikes me as funny or interesting, I will say it over and over just because I like it so much.
Attempting to list my favorite authors or books is next to impossible because this list is never static in nature. My tastes are constantly shifting, although, I can assure you, there are certain works of "literature" that will never make it onto said list *cough*Twilight*cough*.
That being said, Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter each hold a special place in my heart because I consider them instrumental in becoming the person that I am today.
A slightly abrupt transition: I also really enjoy superheroes that do a good job of expressing the awesomeness of being a nerd. This mainly refers to Spiderman, especially the Spiderman incarnation where he fiddles around with neogenic recombinators and makes his own web fluid by mixing chemicals in a lab. X-men also falls under this category, mostly because they are such a great analogue to any sort of downtrodden or repressed population (such as nerds).
Well I think that rambling session adequately sums up why I consider myself a nerd. I've seen John and Hank Green's videos once in a while over the years, but it was only recently that I really got into them and began to learn about the extent of nerdfighteria. I look forward to being a part of something so awesome.
Welcome! :3 And yay for other writing Nerds who love superheroes! ^_^ *high 4s* <----yeah, I know it says "4", my OCD won't lemme say "5" because it's not an even number X3
