Anecdotal boredom.

So I was waiting in a waiting room, (Which sounds repetitive and unoriginal--which is why it stands) and because the waiting room was practically empty and the receptionist had disappeared to wherever it is that receptionists go when the waiting room has one person in it--and they're clearly waiting for their mother, (in my case) I was awash in my own personal sea of boredom. I had my kindle but after the first hour I was tired of reading (gasp--inconceivable!). So like any female worth her…

It's spring YAY

I've been keeping some secrets for along time now and I've finally got up the courage to tell some friends of mine. I don't actually know what's going to happen but I thought that writing a blog post about it might help. It's depressing when you feel alone and I know it was the right decision to share how I felt, but I can't help but regret it a little. But my friends have always been there for me so, they deserve for me to have some faith in them.:-)

You know the fact that it's getting… Continue

Confidence

Why is it so hard to have confidence in your writing? Is it because society tells us that if we love ourselves that we are cocky jerks? Why can't loving yourself and your writing be ok?

Writing is so emotional. Well, for me anyway. It's like taking a singular blood vessel from my body by myself and giving it to someone saying "Please take care of this. I need it back." It's so nerve-wracking because a literal part of you is in someone else's hands! YOUR DNA AND CELLS ARE IN SOMEONE'S…

things are officially bad.

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.

Hello! Nice to meet you, I'm...

I kind of felt like being new and all to Nerdfighteria, and still learning what to do my part meant that I should do an introduction.  So hello!  I'm Tori, it's nice to meet you.

 I'm 16 and ready to take on the world, as much as I can.  I grew up in Wyoming and it was here that I became a little more who I am now.  I love video-games, don't even get me started.  I…

Keep Moving Forward

keep-moving-forward1

“Keep moving forward” is one of the major tag-lines in the Disney movie Meet the Robinson’s. For any of you who haven’t seen the movie (you need to go watch it this instant!) a boy named Lewis travels forward into the future of his own life – although he is unaware that it is his own life – and has to fix his time machine. When he claims he doesn’t even know what he’s…

2¢ Adice Booth

I really enjoy listening to people and helping them with whatever little life questions they may have. I'm most certainly not a professional when it comes to therapy stuff. I feel as though I see things/situations differently than the "common other" person. From my personal experience, It's very hard to find unique advise.

I'm going to set up a little booth this weekend, Fri-Sun, and see who stops by.

Besides giving out advise, I'll walk around town and drop 75% of whatever…

An extract from my diary - Fear

Hello, I am a male, strait, 15 year old, British Nerdfighter, to be honest probably one of the few, and I have decided to write out an extract from my diary from 6th Aug 2013. It is about fear.

'I have noticed that when I let myself go deep into my actual personality, I am very scared. For a while now I have been blocking that up and been a very different me. I have become an onlooker of myself (which is part of a conversation I had with my Mum on the car journey here). I…

July 8th, 2013 (Continued)

Dear Reader(s),

        Leaving Carpinteria meant leaving a big part of me behind. Even at 6 years old I understood that. It meant leaving behind the Starbucks workers that knew mine and my Dad's order by heart, it meant leaving behind every family member I had ever met outside of my direct family. That was the hardest part.

       Everyone see's Hawaii as paradise, unless they live there. The commercials advertising Hawaii display resort beaches, resort restaurants, and, well,…

July 8th, 2013

Dear Reader(s),

I'm not exactly sure how to start this detailed telling of my life-so-far, so I'll describe the place I was born.

Carpinteria, California. Some may know of it, most may not. Carp is a small town about 15 minutes towards the coast from Santa Barbra. It's a small town, but bigger than the place I live now. This little hippie town is right on the beach. I remember growing up, seeing sand on all the main roads during March and April when it would get windy.

There…

The end of my relationship was the best thing to ever happen to me.

On March 14th of this year, my ex and I ended our four year relationship. Originally, it was mutual and we would remain friends. However, after some drama that I'll spare the details of, it turned vicious and nasty.

To be honest... I am so much happier now. That relationship was truly awful and SO emotionally damaging. I am much better off without his constant negativity and hate.

I'm taking the next year or so to focus on myself, my interests, and my life.

Thoughts from places- Carlsbad Nation Caverns, New Mexico

I recently started as a park ranger at Carlsbad National Caverns National Park in New Mexico.  When I say recently I have been in the green and grey for little over a month.  The job requires are large amount of public interaction, interpretation of the resources, and ranger guided programs.   I spend my 9 hr days roving from place to place in the cave and on the surface answering questions mostly about geology, directions, and sometimes about myself.  Such as how does an ecologist with a…

I can't be the only one.

I get physically ill when I think of the boy who once loved me. The boy I used to claim as 'My Boy'. Though I've moved on and I should be over it, I get this queasy feeling in the back of my throat. The absence of him will never truly be filled, a scar will always be there. I miss him I guess. Like so many other things I thought were long lasting, he was a quickly fleeting shine in my life. I'm sure there will be plenty of other boys, there is one now, but I feel like with each new love and… Continue

Forever Alone

I eat alone a lot here. I don't do it intentionally, and I don't think my roommates do, either; it just happens. I sometimes eat dinner alone, but I always eat lunch alone. I can't remember the last time I ate lunch with another person.

Anyway, I don't really mind eating alone, I've done it enough times that I'm used to it. It goes a lot more quickly when I'm by myself. I wouldn't care at all, except, well there is this one thing.

The reason I eat a lone every day is…

Today, I am An Extra

I was taken out of my class today to be an extra in a student film. They told me to have a seat at a random computer and make it look like I am working on an important project. Well as it turns out, I am very bad at improv so I hoped on Nerdfighters and just started this blog to make it look like I am doing something important. 

I really hope none of the production team is on this site, reading this...I mean they want a "typical class room" shot, if anything, pretending type…

Sarah Palin First Tea Party President

The 2016 Elections is off to a early start. Some people feel that the building block for the Tea Party Independent Forum within the Independent Voting Floor will separate the power of the Republican Party. I am sorry but this is not true. The Foundation of this forum is to bring in new officials as well as a Independent Tea Party Officials. As States move to file for Independence and to form their own Government, this is by all mean a mistake, The…

Life In A Nut Shell

I love to look for dramatic irony, here is a nice one we all will probably endure.

To live is to enjoy life.

Enjoying life often requires money.

Work for money for most of your life.

Live the last few years enjoying chronic pain and increased prices.

Die leaving the rest of your money to your decedents.

Your younger decedents enjoy life on your money. 

Lesson? None really, just make the most of it.

Send me on my way

Recently I felt very unlucky. A couple of years ago I made an awful mistake of choosing the wrong classes for me because I thought I wanted to be a Doctor, and not the cool kind. I chose Physics, which I hated so much I stopped learning it this year, and Science technology class which I took for Biomedicne..Don't even ask how I hate every second of working on the project. But I wouldn't suffer as much if I didn't understand what I want to do with my life.

I want to be an…
