What camera are you using?

I'm looking into getting a new camcorder so I can get vlogging. Before I go out shopping, I'd like to hear what you guys are using and what you think of them.Continue

Profile Information

What Kind of Nerdfighter Are You?
I am a nerd who lives and breathes creativity, whether it is my own creations or marvelling at the works of others.
About Me:
I'm a nerfighter of many shades. I am constantly amazed by the creative power of the human mind and I take my time to enjoy it. Of course, this comes in many forms. I love to read and write, and I am a music addict. I'm also a theatre nut. I love to create art (drawing isn't quite enough to describe what I do) and to take in the beauty of other's works.

I'm also a bit of a hippie. I believe that protecting our environments is one of the most important ways that we can decrease world suck. Now, this can be fun as well. For example, buying from the local farmers market is as much about having an adventure as it is about decrease your carbon footprint by purchasing locally. I love the creativity that comes from cooking my own food and cleaning house is actually a meditative exercise for me. I'm absolutely addicted to yoga, I can't get through a day without at least ten minutes of it.

While I don't make my own Youtube videos I am an avid supporter of vloggers. You guys and gals have nothing but respect from me. It's an entirely new kind of creativity and community and you are all brilliant.

My current big obsessions outside of my creative endeavours and Nerdfighting are: Doctor Who, Glee, and Harry Potter.

Long post is long... In defence of the Ning and Nerdfighter friendships

There has been a lot of rumblings throughout Nerdfighteria about the nature of online community and how perhaps Nerdfighteria is not everything it strives to be. For instance, it can be quite cliquey and difficult to navigate. These things contribute to it being difficult to make any truly lasting friendships. I've even noticed that a few people are starting to wonder if we can really hold up the ideals that we strive for as Nerdfighters. If we are encountering things like social exclusion…

HEEEEEEEEEEEEELP!!

H'okay, so I kind of have a confession. My first and only final exam is next Monday afternoon in a 400 level educational psychology course, which is Introduction to Counselling for those who are curious. That's not the problem. I absolutely love this course, I adore it. When I eventually go back to do my masters degree after teaching for a few years I think it will be in counselling psychology. That won't happen if I don't do well on this test, which I haven't started studying for. Hell I…

Escaping the Tornado in My Mind

Thank goodness I have yoga tonight or I don't know how I would make it through the day. I just got a huge metaphorical punch to the face in terms of my student loans and I am beginning to wonder how the hell I am going to pay for everything and make it to next semester. I still don't know if my boyfriend and I are going to have a room mate for the new year or if we are going to get a one bedroom or possibly even move in with my father. Everyone is asking me questions about how we are dealing…

Going to the Vampire Food Bank

Alright, not really. But I can't be the only one that thinks the blood bags at the donation clinic look like the juice bags that some companies use. I'm looking at you Kool-Aid! *stink-eye*

So in less than two hours I am going to the blood donor clinic to give them a pint of the good stuff. Personally, I think that donating blood is an awesome option for fighting world suck because it doesn't take much to do. You don't need to be educated in the green movement, you don't need…

Holy damn, hi!

GREAT to hear from someone else from Edmonton. Frak, it's hard being in this city and not knowing a gosh dern soul. Uhmn, if you have MSN pm me? Or just pm me and we can possibly arrange some meeting in a starbucks or somethin'? If you wouldn't mind; I'm just excited that someone around Eddie is finally around. :P

HEY. I noticed you're from Edmonton. I just did a search to see who lives in Eddie, and I'm kinda new so want to meet more people. How are you (I also noticed you're possibly involved with NerdRamblings/NerdCollabBook which is amazing)?

Hi, I saw on the (un)official nanowrimo thread that you are a writer. Whether or not you have almost succesfully completed nano we are always looking for nerdfighter writers to submit pieces to http://nerdfighters.ning.com/group/nerdfightercollabbook you never know, you might end up getting published. Please check us out if you are interested. DFTBA

A very good luck to you for NaNoWriMo! Honestly, I don't know how you guys do it.

Also, you brought up a good point about storytelling, how much it changes and reshapes itself. I think you'd like Here Lies Arthur!

That is weird! Pretty great though :) Did you ever get that last private message I sent?
