Profile Information

What Kind of Nerdfighter Are You?
Middle-earth/ Latin Language/ Swing-dance
About Me:
I'm a student from the Kansas City Metropolitan area who dances locally. I aspire to teaching at the secondary level. I love William Shakespeare and Publius Vergilius Maro and Edmund Specer and Publius Ovidius Naso and Jorge Luis Borges and John Ronald Reuel Tolkien and Sophocles. John Green's pretty good, too. My life is informed by four major forces: my girlfriend and the love I have for her (that counts as one), language (English, Latin, Elvish dialects, others I haven't yet learned), music, and dancing. Music keeps me sane, dancing keeps me fit and happy, language keeps me inquisitive, and my girl keeps me human. And they all help me live with the rest of the world. And they, along with Nerdfighteria, give me the courage and the will to make the world better.
Favorite Books, Movies, Music, and more
The Lord of the Rings, The Cider House Rules, The Chronicles of Narnia (I'm not going to list them), Othello, King Lear, Sophokles' Theban Cycle, Roverandom, A Separate Peace, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, Harry Potter and the (fill in the blank), The Great Gatsby, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Cold Mountain, 1984, Ender's Game, Speaker for the Dead, Xenocide, Ender's Shadow, Shadow of the Hegemon, Shadow Puppets, Shadow of the Giant, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, Looking for Alaska, Lord of the Flies, Bel Canto, An Abundance of Katherines (at least that's what my facebook profile says)
What's your favorite thing to put on your head?
Either a fedora or a Santa Claus hat.
If you could do your happy dance with anyone who would it be with?
My dog, Shamrock. Because it would be terrifically awesome if she got on her hind legs and did a happy dance.
When did you start watching the Vlogbrothers?
2008
