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
Hello Nerdfighteria! I joined in 2009 but forgot all about it, but now I'm back in Nerdfighteria to stay! (although I never left the land of the Nerds, just forgot about the website)
I heard about Nerdfighters from listening to PotterCast, and I think that's also one of my qualifiers of being a nerd!!
the other things that make me a nerd are:
I love HP so much I fall asleep listening to the audio books every night
I love Fantasy and SciFi literature
I LOVE books! My friends will go out partying and drinking till 3 am and I will stay up till 4 am reading an awesome book!
The one and only time Ive been to a live sporting event- my sister let me have one of the coveted floor seat tickets to a Dallas Stars game- 5 mins in I was so bored I sat down, took my book out of my purse and read for the rest of the game.
