I am holding off on writing about Looking For Alaska (In Your Pants) for two reasons.
- I am sick. Therefore, my creative writing capabilites and analytical tendencies are somewhat undermined.
- That would be a very long topic, so I will just wait.
So, kitties. I do not own a cat, nor have I ever owned a cat. This is a sad fact in my life. The blame should be placed on my dad, because he doesn't like cats. While I can understand why he may think this,… Continue

So Ning is pretty cool. And Nerdfighters are cooler.
I'm trying to decide what to do.
So far I have myspace and facebook and a vlog on youtube...
but I could totally move it all here!
with the nerdfighters!

Blog blog blog, whatever shall I blog?
I intended to do my first Nerdfighter blog about how I entered this crazy world of nerdfighting by being lucky enough to personally know Hank (and Katherine, and to a smaller extent, John, and one time I even met the Yeti). Perhaps I can share some silly stories about Hank at a later time (maybe even pictures, if he doesn't object), but right now my heart and mind are with my sister Sara and I'd like to write a little something.

I have spent most the day veggin out.I hate it when it rains here.I am lucky enough to live where everyone from up north comes for the winter.Its like the international haven for the elderly.Nothing wrong with that mind you but ,I wonder how they make it back alive.I was passed up by a grandma going 80 down one of the main Roads through Sarasota..Rain also brings on the doldrums of boredom unable to get outside and do something.TV is just unwatchable unless you are into the reality shows that… Continue

I'm lazy. And unmotivated. Again. So you get this today.
I've been looking back through the TNU thread for the past couple of days trying to find a certain thing (if you can guess what, you win...something...maybe. Meaning that I might not have anything for you to win. Also, you don't have to have been there during the summer in order to guess, because you could guess right even without being there. Maybe). And I haven't actually found that thing yet, but I did find a whole lot of… Continue

But before I do, Ali and CC were both right about what Peter Fox (the guy who took the class on Thursday) said - who else actually reads this? Anyway. He said 'can you imagine if every minute had 400 seconds?' John made a mathematical mistake in his January 12th video, and explained why he made that mistake - he thought that every minute had 100 seconds - in his January 16th video.
So yes, there was a scavenger hunt clue hidden in Melbourne, Australia under the left foot of the statue… Continue

Soo...I'm reading about this UK nerdfighter gathering and, frankly, am a little sad that such a thing is not happening in the home country of the Brotherhood? Why not a little gathering in NYC, anyone? Any ideas to get this thing rolling, guys? I'm not quite sure how the UK thing was put together, and of course I would be going if I didn't live in the US, but an NYC gathering is most definitely called for. Suggestions?

I did not want to go to school today. I just wanted to stay home and watch Brotherhood 2.0 and read An Enemy of the People and write about awesome things like kickboxing ballerinas or Harry Potter. So. Tired.
There was one good thing, and maybe art nerdfighters will understand, and that was ceramics. I started rolling slabs for the base of my ceremonial vessel. It's going to be a bit challenging to put together and I'm really excited about it. Really, really… Continue

Once upon a time there existed a magical kingdom filled with skilled labourers. This land was called "The Binders". Libraries from across the land, from Universities and Schools, to teachers of Magic, the Arts, Chivalry and Justice, would send their precious books to this amazing place. Once there, the skilled labourers would work wonders on these books, the wounded in the battle for learning. They would work their magic with leather and special glue, book presses, cleaning liquid and other… Continue

So, my flatmates + 1 flatmate brother are going to London for the Nerdfighters meeting. Which I can't go to, because of workage. I love my job, but I really wanted to go! My disappointment cannot be measure in words or sounds, it is inexpressible. As such, my flatmates have been ordered to take many pictures and videos, and possibly a phone call from many nerdfighters (We need a good word for a group of nerdfighters - a jokes?) saying "good morning Kate". Cos that would… Continue

So, I was very excited about my first blog. The decepticons must have known this, and somehow infiltrated the Ning, or as I like to call it, Nerdfighteria. We should mobilise against the evil decepticons, because this, this blog right here, is my 3rd first blog. I am going to implement the strategy I learned from Neverwinter Nights and save. Now, and often.

I just finished this massive project using PowerPoint on Australia that Hannah and I had to do for Civ class*. Now that it's done, I am so over PP. I don't want to use it ever again.
In Chem we're just finishing the unit on redox equations/electrochemistry. When we were going over some notes on electrochemical cells the teacher was trying to explain voltage and current to us in a simpler way. So she used an analogy, and I swear it's the best I've… Continue

For more than two years, I have considered writing a blog, but could not think of a worthy reason to do so. I honestly cannot fathom why anyone might pick this needle out of the vast haystack of blog posts in the world. The world needs another blog like it needs an increase in carbon emissions. And I have another reservation in starting this... it seems a little arrogant to post one's thoughts out there to the world. Perhaps it's even more presumptuous to assume that someone else might read… Continue

"Ender or Bean?"
Thirteen characters in my comments from Lucky#13 (How appropriate. Did you plan that, Lucky?) got me thinking about one of my favorite series of books. It also got me thinking of a couple of questions I would like to pose to those who may happen across this blog.

1. My Favorite IYP joke: A Fountain Filled With Blood In Your Pants. (A book about how to deal with menstruation.)
2. Jude Law: Is a babe. Just realized that.
3. Firefly (Joss Whedon): Is now my favorite (canceled) Sci-Fi TV show.
4. Decrease: Is a funny word. Lawl.

Okay, basically it's Winter Term here at Dartmouth. It's the shortest term of the year, only 9 weeks instead of the usual 10, so every class is rushing along. So naturally (or unnaturally) I have a lot of class work to do.
But this term I am also involved in more organizations that I ever have been before. I'm the treasurer of the Native American student org, the treasurer of my sorority on campus, and the co-president of AISES (American Indian Science and Engineering Society). In… Continue
