What Kind of Nerdfighter Are You?
The cloud watching type.
About Me:
I'm the type who can never write an 'About Me' section and think 'good job.' No, no - instead it's more of an, 'ehhh that'll do.' So first, apologies. I'm going to wing it.

I'm a 23 year old Scottish girl who has no clue what to do with her life, instead my only plan is to make people smile. I'm a bit of a weather dork, pretty obsessed with tornadoes and storms and pointing out all the different cloud types to my rather despondent friends. They're amazing, but they give up on me if it's a 'weather day.' I'm also really into the sailing navy and the nerdiest thing I have ever done was turn down a shopping trip to NYC for my 21st burthday in exchange for my parents to drive me to Portsmouth, England. Luckily they saw that as a great exchange and trekked around the HMS Victory with me (3 times) before jetting off to Greenwich for the National Maritime Museum. Needless to say, I had the time of my life. Besides I have an inverted fear of heights, Canary Wharf had me quivering in fear, NY would have had me hospitalised. I also have a fear of heights. It's a strange combination. Although my other phobias are spider webs (not spiders, I love Tarantulas) and tomato juice (not tomatoes or tomato sauce.) It's all rather bizarre and unexplainable.

I studied both Music Business and Theatrical and Media make up in college and my dream job would be either a make up artist or prosthetics artist for Doctor Who or Torchwood.

I shouldn't have 'wung' it.
Favorite Books, Movies, Music, and more
My favourite books are mainly non-fiction. Anything on the weather or sailing naval history (I currently own 76 naval history books, all for the sailing [aka tall ships/Trafalgar etc] age) but I also love The Lord of The Rings, His Dark Materials, Harry Potter, the Inkheart Trilogy and the Percy Jackson series.

Movie wise i'll watch anything but I like films that make me think like Lions for Lambs and District 9. I also love Interview with a Vampire, Let the Right One In (Swedish version) and Disney/Pixar films (most of them.)

Music wise my iPod ranges from Gaga to Mozart and Josh Turner to Eminem. It's really varied. At the moment i'd say my favourites are t.A.T.u and Tokio Hotel.

Television wise i'm a Whovian and I love Torchwood almost as much. I thought Sherlock was blooming brilliant and I like the wonderful comments of Dave Lamb in Come Dine With Me. I might aswell also throw Emmerdale in there too (but shh!)
What's your favorite thing to put on your head?
My glasses.
If you could do your happy dance with anyone who would it be with?
My happy dance is embarrassing. It's best if nobody witnesses it.
When did you start watching the Vlogbrothers?
Make up your own DFTBA initialism!
It's Emm Gee!

A strangely detailed Doctor Who dream.

Normally when I dream I always remember it, but not normally in so much detail - this one impressed me.

I was in some private school, either technology had advanced quickly, it was the future or another planet all together. It was different, but not completely. My friends were putting on a show of Romeo and…

Well this should be interesting.

I've never really written a proper blog before. Infact I highly doubt this will ever be at 'proper' blog level (read by someone other than myself) however, I feel that it might be worth a try. Perhaps even be of some benefit. I'll let you know if that happens. I might learn about even more of my faults, hoorah! Or remember to put a wash on.

Currently i've found myself at a crossroads in my life, unfortunately this crossroads to independence has come at a time when I have no…
