Hey, i read your last blog post, and i love it. i think we have a lot in common, you ask how? i say, what are the chances to meet another person whose father comes from a country, and mother comes from another country, but born in a third country, that person is also a Muslim, a teenager, a harry potter fan and (most importantly) a nerdfighter, well, that's me. can we be friends, may be penpals?

haha well thanks. I take you saying that as a HUGE compliment. I just don't to be like "I'm a nerdfighter" and for someone to turn around and be all "oh yeah how? leave!"
it would be sad lol
I'm just very obsessive about the things I like :)

Islamic Community Center Controversy

So, to be completely honest, I am an American-born Muslim. My father is

from Bangladesh, my mother is from Poland. My entire life, I have been

brought up as a Muslim child.

At the same time, I have also developed a political leaning to the left. My religion teaches me that

murder is one of the highest sins one can commit, that God created

everyone as equals, and God is the ultimate judge. I believe that

everyone, no matter their race, religion, sexual preference,… Continue

Nerdfightersecrets

What is with this ridiculous uproar with NFS? So Kristina and Luke both tweet about ONE secret that offends them, and everyone starts hating on the person who manages NFS. Seriously? It’s

ONE secret by ONE nerdfighter. Maybe posting it wasn’t the greatest

idea, but it IS someone’s secret, and they, like everyone, are entitled

to their opinion. The owner of NFS is not endorsing that opinion, and

neither is anyone else.

If you really have a…

Doctor Who!

Okay. WHOA. So I'm done with Doctor Who, which hopefully means more

reading time, unless I really do get roped into watching the old series

as well...=\



Hm. I have this really annoying suspicious feeling that a lot more people that I know actually do watch this show,

and are just not talking to me, because I am uber-awkward. Boooo.



Random things:

1) I dislike Matt Smith immensely.

2) David Tennant's incarnation of The Doctor is my new favorite… Continue

Eclipse Review

The other week, I went to see Eclipse with Dominique and Jennifer,

which was really awesome, since I went to see New Moon alone awkwardly.

I've got four pages of notes, so, you know, this should be fun, I

suppose.



Overall, a HUGE improvement for the movie adaptations of the books. I

will admit that Eclipse was one of my favorites of the books, and New

Moon my least favorite, so I'm a tad bit biased, but I felt that this

one had a lot less overacting and… Continue
