I don't understand life

I don't understand life. We we're put here without any instructions. But somehow we have come to think the ultimate goal in life is to become successful. What if we're really supposed to just be and not do?

On the Value of Self Expression

I've become rather blase about my life and while not a lot can be done about it because no matter what I do I'm in grad school and that's going to suck I should take whatever outlets I have to feel better.  

What simple methods are there for increasing personal satisfaction 

During a rare moment of meditation in Yoga I thought about what it means to be me and what I'm doing about displaying that.  And what I want to represent and how that would make me feel.…

The Second One

Hello fellow Nerdfighters, it is time for my second blog entry.

Tonight I will tell you what my life is like right now.

First of all, I work as a valet driver at a hospital. As you can imagine, this isn't a glamorous job, but it is putting electricity into my computer and keeping ink in my pens, so I can't complain. Word to the consumer: tip your valet. We work very hard and long hours.

When I come home from work, I shower and then hand-wash my work…

Censorship and public schools is wrong

i have a 10th grade son who is a sponge , loves to learn and has a strong desire to "figure things out". I think censorship hurts kids. I live in a city in connecticut that has a bad reputation for there public schools. There are many reasons (not valid ones) to not send your child to them. 

I send them anyway. I do not agree with private schools bc I think they are suffocating and they depress instead of develop the growth of children. Hiding them from life is a terrible idea. I have…

This is my first blog and I have questions

Hello there. 

Over the past few months, I have become increasingly interested and involved in the Nerdfighter community. The first vlogbrothers video I watched was in 11th grade Classic Novel, when we were reading The Great Gatsby. I'm actually quite certain, looking back on it now, that my teacher qualifies as an honorary Nerdfighter because he showed several John Green videos in his classes and he is an awesome person. My interest peaked in my senior year when I began to watch…

She has alot of support from family and friends.

The First One

Here it is: my opener.

I am new to Nerdfighters, but not new to Nerdfighters. What I mean is, I've heard John and Hank toss around that word for years watching their videos, but somehow I never thought to look into it. 

I am a nerd. I grew up in a house with my nerd father, my not-so-nerd--but-somewhat-closet-nerd--mother, and my super-mega-as-nerdy-as-me sister. My sister and I were so geeky-nerdy in elementary school, middle school, and our early high school…

ITP Month And Awareness.

Since it is September I've decided to try and spread awareness for this condition. 

I don't want to raise awareness from a medical point of view, rather from the point of view from a sufferer. 

Very few people know what ITP is and so therefore I need to explain it a bit. However for me to do this I realize I must give you some medical information. Though I'll keep it to a minimum.

ITP background:…

hmm a title... READ THIS... plz o:)

It doesn't have to be an ending
Or an attempt at leaving
It was and is a release
And attempt of releasing what is in me, gaining control, spreading like a disease, taking hold of me.
An ending does grow progressively closer.
Can the progress be stopped?
Can the knife grow blunt, the poison weak, the rope long, the gun unloaded?
Who knows
I think it can be slowed or momentarily forgotten. Cured? solved? Overcome? We'll see- by meee

The Birth of Alex Katt

Okay, so Alex Katt has been alive for a while now. 18 years and 14 days. Her birthday is September 5th. I am Alex Katt. After a forever of trying to come up with a pen name, I decided on Alex Katt. My mom liked it, anyway. It comes from my first and middle names: Alexandria Kaitlan.

My novel is going well. I hope to submit a query by next May or June to Jodi Reamer, John Green's agent. To me Alexandria Reardon didn't seem like a good name to have plastered all over a book. Then I… Continue
