For those here who specifically want pen-pals from overseas! Please at least have these basics when you are introducing yourself:
Also, for all those people who can speak other languages, please put this in your profile as well.
Besides from your interests (ie books, shows, and vlogs) we can make it a little more nerdfighter-tastic by answering some of these questions and prompts:
Age: 19, going on 12.
Location: Edinburgh, Scotland
Languages: Only English, I'm afraid.
Contact: Snail Mail Preferred.
Interests: Recent Doctor Who convert, as well as massive science fiction fan including all the classics: Jules Verne, Arthur C. Clarke, Ray Bradbury, Alfred Hitchcock, etc. Lover of the Horrible Histories CBBC program and big fan of Texas instrumental band called Explosions in the Sky.
Prompt: Describe the silliest dance you know.
One of the great joys of living in Scotland is enjoying Ceilidhs, or Scottish Highland Dancing. You dance all night long, and if you're like me, then the heels are long gone and you're dancing bare-foot on a wooden floor with more than 100 people. The silliest one I know of is this one called "The Sausage Machine." The name itself just cracks me up (immature, I know). The whole thing is this monstrosity of turns, and changes, and confusion. But, brilliant fun.
Hullo! Do you want to be pen-pals? We can start off with email first and then do letters.
PS. My favorite hobby is procrastination too XD.
procrastination is the best thing in the world (up until when you have to study or your grades will suffer...)
Name: Lucy Bleazard
Where you live: Bradford, England.
Preferred Method of Contact: I love receiving letters!
Languages: English. I can speak a moderate amount of French. Sort of.
I love writing, I've won NaNoWriMo and Camp NaNoWriMo once each, and I love to read books as well. Books are wonderful. I can't even describe how much I love books. I'm reading The Great Gatsby at the moment, but my favourite book of all time is OBVIOUSLY TFiOS. Obviously. I mean, come on. If you've read it you'll know what I mean. I had to write John Green a very emotional email upon finishing it.
Prompt: Explain what being a nerd-fighter means to you...
It means reducing world suck. It means discarding the idea that to be well-liked and popular in today's society you have to look a certain way or speak a certain way or act a certain way or have fake hair or silicon implanted into your chest. Not that any of those things are wrong, just that they aren't necessary to be happy. It means that no matter who you are or what you look like, you can watch a video or listen to a song or read a book and be accepted somewhere.
Hi! OMG will you be my friend?? We're like almost the same age and everything! In hindsight I sound quite strange, oh well. Yeah so I just wanted to say that I think you and I might get along really well and I really, really want a snail mail buddy. Except I live in America. Does this pose a problem?
P.S The Great Gatsby was fantastic
