"These are ALL from my world history teacher:
"Virginia was named after queen Virgina of England."
"Cholera isn't spread though water, it's in the air."
Also, he calls Austria-Hunagary, "Austria-HungARIA."
"Your sister's friend sounds like a sensible person. I'll wager that she doesn't attack other people's political beliefs in a public forum for no good reason. I could post a lot of things I've heard Obama say over the years,…"
"Teacher's wife comes an speaks to our class about her experience in the air force- one girl in class (named Mary) reads her sweatshirt that says "Maryland" and asks "where is Mary Land?? I've never heard of that!""
Im lily. I've been around nerdfighteria a while, so i get all the old jokes, but i have never been to a gathering! I have a blog that i don't update very often. When I do, it is usually for a meme that I like.
IRL I run cross country, figure skate and play the flute. I love classical music, oldies and some 'normal' songs also. I love reading, science fiction being my favorite genre, though i do love a good fantasy book. I love traveling, and have been to all of the continents except Asia and Antarctica (which i hope to visit some day). Politically I am liberal, and and I am a protestant Christian, though i haven't figured out which denomination yet.I am a middle child. I am pretty good at math, love environmental science, and hate english class. In person im pretty eccentric, and happy. At camp my "native american name" was Smiling Daisy. I laugh frequently. I don't believe in the saying " a day without a smile is not worth living." Seems to me if you're counting smiles, then your entire life is not worth living.
Favorite Books, Movies, Music, and more
Ender's game plus all squeals and prequels. harry potter. Isaac Asamov. The golden compass. Artemis Fowl. Neil Gaimen. Space Odyssey 2001. Dune and all subsequent books. Many Many others I enjoyed.
I do not hate twilight, but I don't think there is any reason to be a fanatic or for 8 year olds to read it.
