Video game playing, comic book reading, literature loving
First off, I love relationships. Friends, family, significant others. Second, video games, comic books, reading other kinds of texts, and writing are some of my most frequent pastimes. (It messes with me that "pastimes" only has one "t.") Lastly, I also go against the "nerd" stereotype. I love being outdoors and being active. I have studied two different styles of martial arts. And I fence (French Foil).
And I love discussion. (Thus, the internet rocks.)
I don't really know what else to put, so I'll put more as I think of it.
Favorite Books, Movies, Music, and more
There is not a tougher question.
None of these are listed in order of importance. (Plus, I'm probably forgetting most of what I want to put. That happens to me whenever I want to write it down.)

What's your favorite thing to put on your head?
Either babies or a fedora
If you could do your happy dance with anyone who would it be with?
Hmm... John Green (the original) or my girlfriend. Probably my girlfriend. Sorry, John.
When did you start watching the Vlogbrothers?

so i picked up Looking for Alaska and read about 100 pages when I should have been sleeping last night.
Good sign for the book, bad sign for my social and work life for the next three John Green books.
I've read that whole series. I'd agree. It breaks Stephen Kings normal formula at almost every turn. That's a great series. you have good taste. I haven't read paper towns yet, so i think i'll grab that.
Oh, yeah, I always thought it was "pastimes" but then I realized that it's actually spelled "pass time," as in something you use to pass the time.
You look ridiculous in fedoras.
And I am up for a happy dance any old time.
"I love The Dresden Files. I also liked the short-lived Sci-Fi TV series that got cancelled because fans got all moody about how it wasn't a lot like the book series. Jim Butcher himself said that it was an alternate version of the books and the…"
One of my favorite series. I haven't finished it yet, I'm on White Night, so please, no spoilers.Anywho, anyone read them? Anyone like them? Any reason why?My own reasons are because of the characters. Dresden is hilariously bad at jokes, wise, and someone I can relate to. Murphy is, in several ways, like my girlfriend, and so, automatically awesome in my book. And who doesn't love Bob?See More
"I can understand the situations of burns and other things, but mostly, it's just demeaning. Society focuses so much on appearance that it's borderline crazy. I think it is hurtful, shallow, and saddening. Some think, "Oh, I need to…"
"It's been too long. But I remember reading a lot of Michael Crichton books when I was younger. And now, I kind of had a rebirth when two of my friends suggested I read the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher toward the end of last year."
"Well, ladies and gents, I didn't shave today or yesterday. I can't really post pics to show my progress. But I'm still not going to shave. All out, no stops. In other words, no trimming, nothing.
I was kind of curious how…"
"I guess the only guidelines/rules I can think of are these:
1. Shave October 31. That way, if you want to, you can monitor your progress with others'. Just a fun idea.
2. Personally, I'm against any trimming. I know technically it…"
