DFTBA yourself. I discovered nerdfighteria because John Green is sort of my literary hero.
welcome fellow music ect Nerdfighter! actually Kayla, have you checked out the music group?
I'm a new nerdfighter. I also heard about vlogborothers from a gif set on tumblr. I've become completely enamored of Hank and John, and fairly impressed by the whole nerdfighter community, although also intimidated because I've never been on a forum this big before.
I am a nerd for a lot of reasons. Mostly that I am smart and more than a little bit odd.
Also, I blog 5 days a week, and last week I took Hank's survey from 2007 and posted it on my blog in 2 parts. Here they are if you would like to read them.
Reading back, I see that some of the answers are kind of morose. It was really overcast in LA last week, so I got a bit melancholy.
Hello Marina, and welcome to the Ning! :D
Hope you feel at home in Nerdfighteria :)
As always, DFTBA!
YES welcome. i think i can see where you're coming from both in terms of shy/nervousness and your melancholy. while there's nothing wrong with not being extroverted or peppy, i hope you'll find a place of some confidence and enjoyment here.
Hi Marina! Great posts, I really enjoyed your list of a perfect day. I also haven't been on a forum this big before and it's intimidating for me too.
I've been a big fan of the Vlogbros videos for a few years but have never really gotten into the community but have decided to join up now and see what's up.
My biggest nerdy aspect is probably my unhealthy obsession with Harry Potter but I don't think I will be alone with that obsession here.
Hey Josh, and welcome to the Ning! :D
I'm sure you'll enjoy the community to the fullest, and, no, I don't think it's unhealthy :p
And, Don't Forget to be Awesome :)
welcome Josh! mind if i ask how you learned about John&Hank/ us?
also. no, you certainly won't be alone
Hi, I just joined NerdFighters and thought it was really cool. I only just found out about vlogbrothers, though, but thought that it would be nice to join the community. Note that Devery may be slightly primarily a female name by a little bit, but I am male, not female (No controversial views intended).
I enjoy Physics, and I tend to think about it during most of my free time. I feel that if more people were aware of how everything in our world actually happens, people would be more in awe, making the world a better place, possibly unifying the world because if everyone is in awe, unification can happen. And, along with that, people will most likely be smarter. Also, knowing a bit of friction Physics can help on the road in tough conditions.
Though, I am all for other sciences and history/Philosophy as well.
Though, to get more in depth with the kind of Physics I like, i tend to think a lot about Einstein's Theory of Special relativity and General relativity, and then there is the Quantum Physics which involves string theory for me, mostly.
As I said, I only just heard about vlog brothers, but that was an introduction that took time form looking at your other channels and other people's channels as well. This includes the science and society channels such as Vsauce, and that led to many others, and as you know, In each channel, there are channel suggestions. I saw one that said crash course, and then I clicked on it. I saw that this was the channel that my History Teacher showed us in class once. Then, I saw the Biology Section in there, which led me to Scishow for a while (When I say a while, it was yesterday, but it was for like 4-5 hours of that day, and I get led to so many different interesting YouTube Channels, that it felt like a while), and then, that eventully led me to vlogbrothers. So, I have only known Vlogbrothers for a day, but I have known you guys for a bit longer than that :D
I hope I will have the time to stay in this forum and increase the appreciation for awesome as well :D
Hello Dev (er, masculine enuff for ya? :p ), and welcome to the Ning!
Well, you sure work fast, I knew of Nerdfighteria for months before I had the urge to join XD
And as always, DFTBA! :D
well, you're more than welcome. hope we don't go too far over your head with Nerdfighterian terms/inside jokes.
