*Please note, this entry contains mild spoilers from the movie Midnight in Paris. So, if you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend that you do :).
I recently watched the Woody Allen film Midnight in Paris. It's the kind of movie I could watch over and over and still experience it again for the first time. The main character, Gil, played by Owen Wilson, reminded me quite a lot of myself. He wants to be a writer, loves the…
Hi I am Jessica and I am a new nerd-fighter and I am kind of new to whole blogging experience so if this does suck (fingers crossed it doesn't) can I have some advice. As I am new to nerdfighteria and I know John and Hank do say that we don't have to buy their books or CDs if we don't want to but it's kind of hard not to because they are awesome. So, when you hear John is a bestselling author you feel his books must be good if he has written it because he is AWESOME! Then you later find out…
"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…

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… Continue
I have FINALLY been able to buy Looking for Alaska, and, 30 pages in, I am already in love this the style of writing and the characters. I love his way of description and the characters are all portrayed perfectly. And I want NO spoilers on how it ends.
Today, I also went to see Harry Potter.
The fact that I cant remember the detail from the book because of how long it has been since I read it made it a really good film. The bits I can remember were different…
So recently I've begun reading more often, which was something that I did strictly for school, or electronically. After reading Paper Towns my muse for reading grew and I have to thank John for that. I've currently read Paper Towns and Looking For Alaska and am starting Will Grayson Will Grayson tomorrow. so on that Thank you John. Thank you Nerdfighters and DFTBA

So at school, I met another writing major named Sarah. Sarah is a
Nerdfighter - specifically a "person who is made out of awesome instead
of blood and organs and things," and unspecifically part of an internet
community started by John Green and his brother Hank.… Continue
As I mentioned in my last blog, I did in fact finish Arch Enemy today. So today I will review the first book in this series: The Looking Glass Wars. First a synopsis.
"Alyss Heart, heir to the Wonderland throne, was forced to flee through the Pool of Tears after a bloody palace coup staged by the murderous Redd shattered her world. Lost and alone in Victorian London, Alyss is befriended by an aspiring author to whom she tells the surreal, violent, heartbreaking story of her young… Continue
I am a relatively new nerdfighter. Yes, I know, everyone just has to have their very first nerdfighter blog and it's bound to be very informative about the nerdfighter themselves. However, I don't know how much anyone would get out of my obsessive top ten lists or a paragraph about the differences between my high school and current college experiences. In fact, I don't know if anyone would read my first blog were it to be about such things. So, I waited. I resisted the urge on my very first day… Continue
Was one of the best books i've ever read, actually. I pulled an all-nighter because I couldn't bare to stop reading it.
The story tells of a Junior named Miles (aka 'Pudge') who in short terms, goes to this boarding school in Alabama.
He meets people such as Chip (the Colonel), Lara, Takumi and of course, Alaska.
They do awesome things,
Reduce world suck,
But despite my bad description of the book, it was incredibly enjoyable to read- and interesting.… Continue

Beneath the Coffman Memorial Union at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus is a massive bookstore. There are many sections to this book store, one that's sort of like a regular bookstore. Now it wasn't any surprise to see all three of John Green's books available in the Young Adult section of that part. But I was looking at the textbook section when I saw this on the shelves.
Sorry about the poor image, I did drop my iPhone… Continue
One grey and slightly murky day, an intruging tale began. A small, wire creature was found by two Nerdfighters. This creature was strange, it looked like an everyday Supermarket trolley except for two things: 1. It was in the middle of a park. 2. It never forgot to be awesome.
This Trolley was named PudgeColinHankColonolRothSpiegelman and was made an honorary Nerdfighter. It was obvious the Trolley had to be returned but it had to see the sights beforehand. So off went the three companions… Continue
Three books filled my open moments for the past few weeks, and let me tell you, there have been good books, bad books, and sucky ( pun intended) books. I have created a youtube video covering such books, and only one of these three books counts as a good one. That book was Looking for Alaska by our own John Green! I really did enjoy it, and it was an absolute delight! For more, check out This video! I have a tendency to be a bit radical and bitchy. ^.^ You have been warned.
This is going to be a short post, but I just wanted to say that I saw Looking for Alaska in my school library ON THE SHELF! (In my school, there's two main shelves. One is in the front, and one is near the back. Both only show the good books [some being Twilight, Harry Potter, etc.].) BUT LOOKING FOR ALASKA WAS UP THERE!!
and that just made me all happy inside. (:
aaaaaand, that's all I have to say for today.
