Profile Information

What Kind of Nerdfighter Are You?
No idea!
About Me:
Well, I'm 15, read a lot, listen to a lot of music, and study a fair deal. I speak English and I have a basic command of German (enough to let me live there for a while... But not really have a social life!) My house has been taken over by animals; we have three cats, a dog, a snake, and three gerbils sharing the house with us.
Favorite Books, Movies, Music, and more
I adore the Inkheart series, and I read a lot by James Patterson, Sidney Sheldon, and Stephen King. I'm currently working my way through the classics (currently reading Pride and Prejudice).

I love old rock and metal, like Meat Loaf, Iron Maiden, Skid Row, and Rush. Although, to be honest, I'll listen to anything as long as the vocals are good and there is at least one interesting guitar riff.

I'm not big on films, but I'm getting into films more than I used to be! I like watching superhero movies, like the X-Men movies and the Batman series. My favorite movies, however, are The Rocky Horror Picture Show, the Back To The Future films, and The Neverending Story.
What's your favorite thing to put on your head?
I've not put anything on my head since I was ten, so I don't know :P
If you could do your happy dance with anyone who would it be with?
Neil DeGrasse Tyson and Brian Cox!
When did you start watching the Vlogbrothers?
October, 2012
Make up your own DFTBA initialism!
