So. Today was supposed to be a dreary day in a rainy Amsterdam with some 50 people shouting for the good cause. And then, me sitting cold and already getting sick on my couch watching some old movie in the evening. Like, at this very moment. Instead, I am sitting here typing this blog, my head somewhat sunburned after I had a terrific afternoon in Amsterdam at the March Against Monsanto with more than 2000 people on the Dam-square in our nation's capital.
Okay, for those that…Continue

I'm just getting a little sick of the system that values aggregators of content more than creators of content, and presumes some kind of magical future where owning users free time results in lots of money.
Also, if you are an excellent, detail-oriented, graphic designer who wants to work with a company that does cool things quickly…Continue

According to some statistics I just read, 41% of first marriges end in divorce. Now, I know this is something that has been disscussed over and over again but now it's my turn to do it. My family is in that 41% that ended in divorce and I remember that as an ignorant child (and lets face it that we all were quite ignorant to what goes on in the real world as children and then hopefully we click out of that once we start having to actually face the world, say when we enter 14-15 years of age)…Continue

There is a group of super cool nerdfighters (I know, I know, I'm being redundant) starting a read through of all seven Harry Potter books starting June 8th and ending in late August. We're really looking forward to some awesome discussion and we'd love to see you there!
We will be taking one week for each book for the first three. After that it's two weeks per book. Everyone is welcome to participate as much or as little as they…Continue

I remember when I was in elementary school. Today was the day that we watched "The Movie". For those of you who don't know, "The Movie" is a guide to how your body works -- both female and male, and the changes they go through. In elementary school, this is a big deal.
Before going out to recess, I remember my teacher making the class stand up and say two words three times. "Penis" and "Vagina." And of course, everyone was freaking out. Because they were freaking out, I was…Continue

A flower in the middle of a barren field,
surrounded by destruction
Standing tall in the midst of chaos
shinning bright yet tinted
by the death all around
Where an old RV park once stood and children used to run and play,
now tossed and thrown about,…Continue

Somethings your peers will try to make you take some things the importat thing is to never listen to them.

Space is awesome. Space is big (no edge). And Space is full of endless possibilities. However, space isn't with it's drawbacks, especially when considering a human in space. From high energy radiation, to bone and muscle degeneration, and the obvious lack of air, space is dangerous.
But us humans don't give up in the face of dangerous situations. We thrive on them, it's what makes us progress in both understanding and knowledge. And so, we come up with solutions to the problems that…Continue

This is my first ever blog post... Why am I nervous about it?
Of course, it will be about John and Hank Green.
It was September of my junior year of high school (also known as this one) when I was introduced to John Green's work by my AP English teacher. Great lady. Anyhow. She told us about a book she was reading called The Fault in Our Stars, and also about how awesome it was, and my best friend, Nikki, and I just looked at each other and nodded.
I, being a good friend,…
Hey fellow Nerdfighters! I am currently in the process of writing an essay about nerds, so I need some personal input from you. If you could take a few seconds to comment, I would be very appreciative.
What are your reasons for considering yourself a nerd?…Continue
Okay, so I am new here on the Nerdfighter scene, but am a long-time nerd. I am really excited about starting this blog which I think I am going to mostly make about nerdy things and my life. So basically, very similar to a lot of blogs. I am, however, a secret nerd. I am obviously I am in no way ashamed to be a nerd, but I have a lot of friends who have never even heard of the shows or books I read. I think its absolutely okay because I know they love me for who I am either way but it…Continue
