BEDA 11: Reading is good for you

It is no sekrit that I am a big fan of LISTSIt is also no sekrit at all that I really really love BOOKSSo today I am going to combine these two loves of mine and tell you 11 books I think you should read if you want to be as smart as I am. (You might not be as smart as I am, but you will at least have a fighting chance!)To make it more interesting, I may also include some QUOTES from these books because I also really really really love QUOTES. (This is also probably not a sekrit.)So, without…See More

"So I fangirled a bit when I saw your comment. I remember you from the "nerdfighter lexicon" video you made because I used your definition of nerdfighter for a speech I made last summer about John and Hank and nerdfighting. LOL."

About Me:
I kind of rock at being awkward... I'm 21, I'm a Psych and Speech major. I love books. I think I used to have a life, but I apparently don't anymore. I am perpetually impressed by the Green brothers. The nerdiest thing about me is probably my obsession with school supplies. Sometimes I amaze myself with my own lameness. I'm a total insomniac. I'm still not very good at this whole ning thing, but if you friend me or comment I will try to get back to you.
Favorite Books, Movies, Music, and more

So today I am going to combine these two loves of mine and tell you 11 books I think you should read if you want to be as smart as I am. (You might not be as smart as I am, but you will at least have a fighting chance!)

BEDA 10: You can pick your friends...

But you can't pick your family.



Which makes sense because there are a lot of people who wouldn't have anything remotely resembling a social life if they didn't have family members that were forced to hang out with them. Some of my relatives for example.



Let me just give you a quick rundown...

My dad has 2 brothers and 3 sisters. They all have spouses, and in sum, there are 18 grandchildren. Of these:



My grandparents both think TV is the devil. They also… Continue

BEDA 9: Things you didn't want to know about me

Some things you probably didn't want to know about me:



1) There is currently a puppy licking my boob.

2) I bit my fingernails till I was 17

3) Sometimes I sleep naked

4) I have answered the phone in the bathroom before

5) I once went 3 days without showering

6) When I was a little girl, I bit the fingernails off all my barbie dolls so they would match me

7) After I get out of the shower, I sometimes get back on skype and chat with people naked and they… Continue

BEDA 8: Things you would rather read

I am having a rotten day and am in a rotten mood, so instead of you having to read a blog in which I rant about rotten things... for example, why people think it is okay to play loud music in public places, or why statistics students can't come in for tutoring any day besides the day of the test, or why the puppy wouldn't stop barking last night, or why everything about planning for grad school is so effing hard, or why my internet connection hates me... I am going to give you a list of things… Continue

BEDA 7: I suck at titles

Well, I don't have any kernels of knowledge or nuggets of wisdom to impart today kids, I am tired. So I will just tell you what I did today.



I went to my Health Psychology class (for the first time in about a month, bad Rachael), watched Office Space in my nonverbal class, and finished reading the book The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down which I highly recommend to anyone interested in cultures, Psychology, or medicine. I scheduled a consultation to talk about having my wisdom… Continue

Why don't you buy water proof covers for your mattress, duvet and pillow. :¬D

It would be an inconvenience, but with a hot drink and a shower you'll feel great.

Oh yes. Literally 5 doors down the street is where they're filming all the scenes at Michael Meyers's house. It is basically the coolest thing ever. =]

And I didn't even know about nerdfighters until like, the end of the 1st year. AGH. I just nerded myself out at the Halloween 2 set. They yelled at me to get off the grass. =]

My friend and I got there like right before John showed up. It was amazing. He walked in, and I just got this goofy grin on my face. I was starstruck.

You know how they had the little area upstairs set up for him? My friend and I were convinced it was a skating rink. It looked like it from where we were sitting when we first got there.

And you are so adorable in your vlogs! Make more! You for serious remind me of hayleyg.
