So, while I've been following the Vlogbrothers and have read a few John Green books, I don't think I necessarily fit into the category of what might be considered a "nerd."
Not that I have any desire to.
The term "nerd" becomes problematic in its own right.
Let's find a definition and go from there. (I hope that Wikipedia will suffice for now.)…Continue
I just watched John Green's video blog of October 16, 2007 in which he displays his extensive home library.
Which prompted me to think to myself...
"I want a home library so much!!!"
I've got two bookshelves in my small apartment, and I have to share them with my…Continue
Some thing that always kind of ticks me off is that how being a nerd girl is well kind of hard. This is because it seems that we have to prove ourselves more to people that we read comic books, worship TV shows, and other things. People think that we just read it because we think the guys in it are hot or that we're trying to be hipster or something which is stupid. I watch nerdy shows because I admire the writing and storylines not because the actors are attractive. I read zombie comic…Continue
In my random wandering around the internet, I found this: http://geekgirlvideo.tumblr.com/
For all the Nerd/Geek girls out there, the ones that get the crap from their peers for being geeks/nerds.
Watch the video, scroll the tumbler, submit a story of your own. It is all good stuff.
You have NOTHING to prove, keep on doing what you're doing.

hello. So today I decided to make a vlog video...it's not great, infact it's pretty bad, but it was really fun to make and I'd like to try my hand at doing another.
However there isn't really any point in doing so when I don't have ANY subscribers, only 14 views and one like!
SO I guess what I'm trying to say, is please check it out, it means a great deal to me.
Thank you xxx…Continue

I would like to thank Karen for providing me with personal input to put in my essay on nerds! It is fabulous personal opinions like those she shared with me by commenting on my last post that will help me write the best essay possible. Thanks so much Karen!
Since i was a little girl i have watched and grown up with star trek, my little brother and i learnt all the words to the beginning sequence, my best friend was even named after one of the characters, in other words i was a massive nerd. In my high school years I was defiantly an outcast, but at the age of 14 i discovered Harajuku fashion and anime, these were my new loves, i spent hours looking at fashion shows and reading blogs about Harajuku. My Friends were not as enthusiastic about…Continue
So, we decided that we needed to make a Swot Sisters tumblr account. Just cause.
Follow for lots of geeky nerdy awesome and updates on our vlogs! We follow back! :D

my name is Charlotte. I have been a nerd for all my life, but it has been a difficult journey for me.
When I was in 4th grade (4 years ago) I read Harry Potter for the first time. And I went over the top obsessive over it. I got a cardboard cutout of Harry and named him Happy Harry. I had 47 posters exactly. I was no longer permitted to read the books because I lived in a huge shrine that was my bedroom. And I did refer to it as a shrine. Kids still talk…Continue

Wow, what a sweet story. Slightly reminiscent of Dear Enemy but unique in and of it's own right. For a novella to bring about that much change in fate and emotion in so few pages, it deserves to be applauded. I was quite glad.
Solena, a young orphaned girl raised by the High Prophet of her people, is known for having a generous heart along with her…

I know I've been exhausted and stressed for too long when I actually cry at TV shows - especially reruns - so when I found myself full-on sobbing at the end of a Doctor Who episode, I realized not traveling this weekend was a good idea!
Then (while I was still sobbing into my napkin under the dubious stare of my cat) I thought, "I wish I could see what happens in my brain while watching emotional TV shows! What would that be - fMRI? Have they done that study? Can I see…Continue

Hey fellow nerdfighters! So, I know I don't really post much (this shall change, I swear on the grave of Thorin Oakenshield), but my friends and I have started a nerdvlog together! We'll probably just be talking about random nerdy amazingness. We do fight against suck, and we even mention a JOHN GREEN NOVEL in the first post! Give us a look and maybe some ideas for topics to discuss if you'd like. We hope to entertain you in your fight against suck!
(By the way, sorry for the cruddy…Continue

Hopefully this doesn't come off as horrible self advertisement, but I'm trying to get my blog out in the world, it's something I've realized that I have to work at! Internet pages don't share themselves, you need the people behind the screen. And hey, maybe I'll post on here too, I didn't realize anyone could do it! :)
The reason why I wanted to post a link here was because I think the community that Hank and John has built is wonderful. In fact, if…Continue

A girl who will not only accept or embrace my nerdiness, weirdness, and quirks, but enjoy them with me. I want someone who won’t be ashamed of how excited I get over Doctor Who or Harry Potter marathons. Someone who loves the fact that Three of my tattoos are Harry Potter related and the last one is Blooregard Q. Kazoo (Bloo from Foster’s Home for imaginary friends.) And that I’m a dedicated comic book nerd. Someone that loves and supports my passion for music and film. I also want a woman…Continue

I've just joined the Nerdfighters, and I am so excited that this community exists. I grew up as kind of a closet nerd. I mean, my whole family are nerds, so nerdiness is entirely accepted and encouraged at home. My older brother and I grew up with successive versions of Star Trek. Star Wars was a staple too; my brother had lots of Star Wars toys, and one Halloween we went as Luke and Leia. My mom even did the coiled braids at the sides of my head. I apparently took my princessly role very…Continue

Just a short preamble this was inspired by a line from Bill Hicks that went we are one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively. So here you go enjoy.

Adam was cruising along in his average family saloon when through an all too prevalent defect with the braking system he slammed into a typical oak and as is commonplace with this type of collision his brain ricocheted around his skull and disintegrated like it had been in…Continue

So, new person here! I think I have it tattooed on my forehead. But no matter. I'm used to be the new person in a lot of situations. Military brat, nomadic spirit, loner... Kinda makes it impossible not to find myself in new situations.
Found Brotherhood 2.0 from my boss at work. Pretty much hooked ever since. Donated my first loan to kiva.org. Sent everyone I knew to have an inkling towards nerdiness here. There, done my part... My other credentials include over 735 books on…Continue

I'm a bit of an idiot sometimes, so I need help.
Where should I start, exactly, on Nerd Fighters?
I'm lazy sometimes, and don't feel like figuring things out right now, and I probably sound really stupid. But I tend to do some nerdy stuff (I currently have a four foot tall Pikachu standing across from me) and I want to partake in this famous website.
So, where do I start? :)
