So, I'm like sorry if this is old news but I just found out like yesterday that February is International Steampunk Month. And I feel like a rockstar knowing the guy who made it happen: Airship Ambassador. And when I say know him, I mean we shared a few laughs on Twitter. But that's all it takes these days to know someone, am I right? But no, he's a good Tweatheart of mine and I'm thrilled he's hosting this, even more excited to be apart of it.
Anyway, I thought to myself there's…Continue

It was 2011 when I first heard the word 'Nerdfighter' and I didn't know what it meant. I'll set the scene. I live in the beautiful little city of Exeter, in the rural and wet county of Devon in the best part of England (the South West) and in this beautiful little city of Exeter, there used to be a Doctor Who shop owned by a man called John.
John was a lovely man and I was a regular at his shop and what have you. And one day John told me that he was putting together a Doctor…Continue

I have been thinking upon many things and one of them is my four year old brother. Since the day he could comprehend words, I have been insistently coaxing the idea that the meat he loves and devours used to be the meat of an animal that had been killed to be sold and put on his plate. I am not a vegetarian, but I do think that we're leaning the carnivore side than omnivore in America. I don't even mind if he spent every meal of the rest of his life an all-you-eat-BBQ. I just want him to do…Continue

Being an avid reader and bookworm means that there is a constant stream of things for me to read. Currently I am in the middle of This Star Won't Go Out (<3) and The Maze Runner. I am forever buying books and then of course there's the leaning tower of unreads that are tucked away in my room. But I just thought I'd share a list of some of the books that I hope to get through before the end of the year! :
1.) The Hitch Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams
First national tournament next weekend. Possibly the most exciting thing ever!!

Hello! Stumbling upon anything is weird, but stumbling on something that consists of books, dftba, dooblydoos, and other random, hilarious things can be confusing to someone. Someone that is namely me. I was looking at facebook posts of things that were related to tfios and other great John Green novels and came across a video that would change the course of FreeTime forever: Eating the unicorn. This was my first taste of vlogbrothers, and I haven't been able to stop eating since. So, as a…Continue
As the majority of the Nerdfighting community will already know, TFIOS had its trailer released not so long ago and can be viewed below. I personally cannot wait for this (so far) seemingly amazing adaptation!.
(Forgive me as this is the first time I'll be posting, and if there's a correct way to do this, I'm not sure this is it.)
I believe that when we are born, we are given a set number of life changing moments. We miss the first because, well, it's our birth, but after that, it's up to us to recognize them and let them affect us. These moments can be small, and we always have the potential to miss them, but I also think that each moment is unique to finding us and if missed the first…Continue
Hey, I don't normally post stuff on here, but I have a request. Could one of the admins who is in charge of making the site look good re-add the foundation to decrease worldsuck's index, and change it from time to time? Just wondering...

Hello fellow nerdfighters!!
Since I am known to be a procrastinator and I have an exam on Saturday I thought that I should start a blog.... However I am having some trouble deciding on what to blog about... So I am asking you nerdfighters!! What do YOU want to read about?
Thank you for your comments!!
The past few months have been interesting to say the least. For one I've changed my major from Zoology to a major in English with a concentration in literature, I'm hoping to go into publishing, and that it leads me somewhere where I'll feel good being. I went home for Christmas and it was nice to visit Portland and see the dog but honestly... I didn't like being there mostly because on Boxing day my dad told me that he doesn't think he wants to be with my mum anymore. I was heart broken at…Continue

I have literally spent more hours studying than I have spent sleeping this weekend.
As a reward, I gave myself the choice between getting on Steam to play Little Inferno, Euphoria, or some other easy going game OR resume watching Classic Doctor Who. I have recently acquired all of the lost episodes, some are only stills and audio. So I am re-watching all of Doctor Who in its entirety.
Despite this, I decide I would game a little. I open my laptop and my newly installed theme…Continue

If I could take a few minutes of your time; that would be incredible. My (not-super-nerdy-however-kind-of-nerdy-cause-she-is-related-to-me) sister is currently entered in a video contest where she could win $2500 for her school. She is (at the moment) in second place. If you could, copy the link into your web browser and follow the instructions listed
below. Today is the last day to vote, so spread it…

Beware. I have promised myself that once a week I would write from nothing. So I've cleared my mind and don't have any prerequisite for what may come. [give me a few seconds]
I am now wondering why humans are. I am wondering what other than science makes us tick. I am wondering what other than the aorta and ventricle causes blood to enter and exit the heart. I am wondering why humanity exists so simply and so complexly.
I have often said that I think to live in itself is such a…Continue

I found out two days ago that through my own stupidity I owe the state of Kansas over $6,00 in back taxes and penalties. This pretty much quadruppled the insanely high levels of stress I've already been under lately and last night I had a complete meltdown at work and I have been told that after 30 days I will not have a job. I will not be able to afford my car and I will have to drop out of school. My life has officially disintegrated.

The late Nelson Mandela is the greatest politician in the past century. Maybe even the greatest human public figure ever. I grew up in a decade of peace mostly - there were not many incidents of mass violence. But it is strange to imagine only ten years before I was born, South Africa still was…Continue

"And I say to you, I have also decided to stick with love, for I know that love is ultimately the only answer to mankind's problems... and I say to myself that hate is too great a burden to bear. I have decided to love. If you are seeking the highest good, I think you can find it through love." - Martin Luther King Jr.
What can be more true today than for the world to walk hand in hand, we need love. This is very true in modern day China. Today in China, there is very little unity: in…Continue
