So I was thinking the other day (which is something I do a lot surprisingly) and I came across this question: How did societies definition of perfect come along?
Was it something that was dreamed up when the opposite of flaws were imagined? Meaning, fat is bad, so skinny must be good. Or acne is bad, so clear skin is perfect. Crooked teeth are terrible, so straight teeth must be what everyone has to have to be "good-looking". Well when you go through the entire list, you realize…Continue
For most of us, after watching moments like this our hearts and minds will be filled with love and gratitude and then unfortunately somehow we slowly and unintentionally return to our unconsciously unappreciative selves...

Before reading any further you should know one thing, I actually like my job. Yes, I work at a fast food place for minimum wage. Yes, I deal with customers who have no idea what they want and get frustrated with me because I can't read their mind. Yes, my boss is a micro-managing control freak. My other boss is lazy, though.
I've been working for this fast food restaurant for a couple of months now. I don't…Continue

This is my first entry, and I have no idea really what I'm going to make this yet. As for now, partially because I'm bored but mostly because I'm still slightly mad about it, I'm just going to vent.
Today, we had another Signet class. For those of you who don't know or have Signet, at this point it's basically like debate club. That said, I am completely fine with other people having a different opinion so long as it's not a stupid one. What defines a stupid opinion (in…Continue

Last night, instead of reading A Farewell to Arms I decided to visit the website Chatroulette. Chatroullette is a website in which many people across the world gather to have a conversation with other people across the world whether it be by textual communication, through the mic, or with a webcam. My Friends and I had decided that we would try to find each other on this website and that task got stale after about 30 minutes so I decided to spice things up. If you do decide to check out this…Continue

I got a used copy of the Inferno by Dante for $1.25 at my local used book store.
Good day, or great day?
If you haven't seen Charlie McDonnell's most recent video yet, it's quite adorable, and you should watch it here.
First of all, he's adorable. Being an American, I'm obsessed with his accent and listening to it just makes me melt. Also, those 10 seconds at the end just convince me that he's incredibly adorkable.
Second...meeting people. This video made me think…Continue
No, that is not a spelling error. That is the title of a fantastic film showcasing the way women are portrayed in the media. Sadly, females are little more than sexual objects. Even women in power (eg. Hillary Clinton) have been objectified by their outward appearance and not the way they have changed society. This film certainly changed my perspective on media outlets, such as tabloids and television. It has been known for a while that women have been treated as less than humans in the…Continue
People. Some people are just such shit-mean-ass people and the give the rest of the planet a bad name. If some aliens found out about earth and looked at people they'd be all, "What dicks. They killed the planet and killed people and some of them are starving while others have more than they will every need. Let's eliminate them!" and then there would be no people left because some people are shit-mean-ass.

So if you're here it's obviously because you have a youtube account and you're subbed to lots of youtubers (I guess that specially the Vlogbrothers) and you're dedicated enough to come to nerdfighters.ning.com . Probably more than ones in your life you had to explain to someone what's so awesome about staring at your computer, watching youtube videos. For most of the people, youtube is a place to watch movie trailers, music videos and sometimes viral funny videos but we know it's not just…Continue

Sometimes when you hold someone in you mind you only see them the way you want to. That picture of them might change after awhile but you will always have that initial idea in you head. You will always think of them in that way. So when you hear that this person you have in your mind has made a mistake you think it is shocking and untrue. Even though it might be the closest thing to the truth. In a way this person you have saved in your mind is like a facebook picture if you think about…Continue

During a lot of dark times in my life I have sought refuge in communities that would help me restore my faith in humanity. These have ranged from clubs at school to random encounters with the same people at regular locations and into the extremities of simply up and leaving the country to be with others.
But never have I found a place to go to like Nerdfigtheria...
Now, I have been a Nerdfighter for quite a while, though on a strangely detached basis at first. I wouldn't get…Continue

I dreamt I stood in a field of grass, the breeze danced gently upon my face and played with strands of my hair.
I was looking towards the west, the field of grass extended all the way to a line of trees, and through the trees i could see the glimmer of sunset on water. I looked behind me and saw grassy hills that gave way to sharp rocky formations which extended both ways around to meet far behind the trees and…Continue
