Certainly not everyone. I really do have a good group of friends, but they care so much about not being a nerd in our (drinking, smoking, hating) classmates' eyes that I feel like I'm alone in wanting to be true to myself. Jeez that sounds super cheesy, but I guess cheesy things only exist because a lot of people feel that way.
i like cheese
I'm a 20 something student from northern England. Pretty new to nerdfighteria. Discovered the community via the wonderful Alex Day/Charlie McDonnell channels, so I thought I might as well get involved!
I'm currently studying Law and French. Just finished my third year, which I've spent in la belle France.
I've always been a nerdy type - unfortunately suppressed slightly by school but flourishing again at university. Fairly generic I suppose - Doctor Who, being awkward around new people, graphic t shirts, Zelda, etc etc...
So, hello. You all seem like the decent sort, so I'm looking forward to chatting.
Hi there James, and welcome to the Ning!
Liking the place so far?
welcome James! did you find Charlie or Alex first? just out of curiousity...
Hello other NerdFighters! I recently found the VlogBrothers (A couple of days before Hanko De Mayo) and find this community to be an awesome community. Some things I'd like to do in life would have to include writing a book one day, helping or creating a charity to build schools in poor areas, and some sort of art related projects.
Harry Potter - Orchestra - Literature - and Math nerd.
(Also, I love BBC Sherlock. That show is awesome and I can't wait for the next season to come out)
Hello Adrian, and welcome to the Ning!
Hope you enjoy the community as much as we do :)
Thank you! So far, I'm very into it.
welcome to the ning Adrian
i much admire you for having specific worldsuck decreasing goals.
so...have you gone back through any of the old vlogs?
I've been trying to watch all of them but It's taking 5ever.
So far, I have more than 200 videos to go, although, since it's a lot of fun, it's not very difficult. It's very interesting to watch the channel evolve.
Greetings, salutations, pleasantries!
I'm not new to the vlogbrothers or nerdfighteria, I've been keeping up with them for over a year now and to the best of my knowledge have trawled the entire back-catalog of videos. To be honest with you I signed up here because I'm contemplating starting up a vlog of my own and needed somewhere to ask a few questions and look for a bit of advice; when it comes down to it the motivation is that I'm terrible at public speaking (which is becoming a hindrance in my degree) and think that doing this as a project would probably help matters. But if I don't make a post putting my plan out there on the internet I'll probably chicken out. So this is an incentive to make me keep going.
Also, it would be nice to have some people to discuss vlogbrother matters with without getting weird looks from everyone. I slip references in conversations regularly to see if anyone notices them, but nobody I know in reality appears to get them. Ho hum!
welcome to the ning Chris!
i hope things go well regardless of the blog happening or not.
