Nerdfighters is my life, along with books and the Harry Potter Alliance. I support LGTBQ rights and I signed the petition to prevent the Kill the Gays thing in Uganda.
I've sorted out my religious beliefs already - I'm an Athiest, but I agree with some aspects of Buddhism and Wicca (again, don't judge!) Christianity just doesn't make sense for me, but that doesn't mean that I hate anyone who is religious! I love learning about religion and ancient mythology.

"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself." -John Green.
“In the contemporary world where things fall apart and the center cannot hold, you have to imagine a community where there is no center.” -John Green.
