Perfectionism is an insidious part of the academic culture. I've written a post on how we might start to change that. You can find the post here at my blog:
The post will be of interest to undergraduates, graduate students, and faculty alike.

So last week I graduated high school. It's funny, because at the ceremony, so many people were so upset and emotional- let's just say I got more than my fair share of tears all over my blazer. But I didn't cry at all. I know I should be sad about leaving, but really- I'm just excited.
Not it's not just your typical teenager 'I hate everyone; I'm so glad I never have to see anyone ever again; you all ruined my life' sentiments, although I'd be lying if I said that I'd never thought…Continue

I hate University. Plain and simple, right? Wrong! Being the eldest child, makes my parents think that I have to set a good example for my little brother and sisters. I don't want to. I want to be me and run off to America or London and get a part acting, because it's practically and impossibility here (here being Australia, if anyone wishes to dispute that, I welcome thee). Alas, I'm stuck in University, studying to teach people my passion because…Continue

How are you today? Good? Tired? Suffering from a kind of anxiety that resonates from the BIG DECISIONS you are making about your future? Really? That was kind of a rhetorical question. Sorry. Anyways. Yes. To get to the point of this blogpost.
Dear Nerdfighteria, are there any Nerdfighters who are moving to/live in Melbourne, Australia, who are starting university in the first semester of 2013. I know it's a long way off, with it only being January…Continue

So two of my friends, both in the year below me at University, are developing a retro stylee console.
They've had interest from proper buisness investor type people.
They're getting proper business type offices.
Only one of them is 21.
And then there's me... A pending dissertation. No films in the pipeline. No work at all on the horizon.
Yeah, I don't feel inadequate at all..
ALTHOUGH, I am…Continue

My name is Paul! I have recently started a video series called PROFESSOR NotONE! on YouTube. In this series I vlog about some lessons I've learned in both life and my classes at University. I have six videos uploaded, with videos to come once a week unless otherwise notified! The videos are entertaining, and funny at some points!
One of my videos is actually about Nerdfighteria! I'd love if the nerdfighteria community starting supporting me! I know…Continue

Hey, so I'm a freshman at the University of Florida and was hoping to be able to meet some Nerdfighters here seeing that that was a near impossibility in my hometown.

On my blog, which is based on Tumblr, there is a series of writings that I have created, surrounding a protagonist "she" (AKA myself). More recently I have been updating these a lot more than I usually have. I'm feeling a little creative. Soon I should be getting a new computer - so I think I'm going to start using my YouTube channel. (Both my Tumblr & YouTube channel are of the same name as my ning profile: onethousandacres). I have…Continue

First of all, I would like to say, hello Nerdfighteria, and happy First of April! (And no, this isn't a joke.)
For my intro to public speaking class, we have to write an epideictic speech. (for those of you who don't know what epideictic means, its pretty much just a ceremonial speech) So, I have decided that in lieu of writing a graduation or commencement speech, since I already wrote one for my high school graduation, I am going to compose a eulogy for a dead person. But whom should…Continue
First of all, the guy next to me is creepin' over my shoulder. I'm in anatomy and physiology II with a sub prof who kinda looks like an overweight Kevin Spacey with glasses and a slight lisp. I'm in the same gross room as the one i mentioned in my biology post yesterday, except there is no Snorlax. Now I think the one next to me is talking to me but I can't hear him over the radio...oh well...just smile and nod. :P
Now to actually get to the point of this. Since moving…Continue
First blog of the year! Would have done one on the 1st but I had only slept for around less than 8 hours in the last 48hrs of then. I have had 12hrs now so I can type properly!..... anyway..... 2011.
This year I'm going to make the most of it. I'm taking time out from university as I withdrew early December following increasing panic attacks. There was nothing wrong with the people or the course or anything for that matter, but the panic attacks and everything that comes with them…Continue
