If You Want To Be A Nerdfighter, You Are One
In 6th grade, I saw a poster on my social studies teacher’s wall. It was a Crash Course World History poster. I wasn’t sure what it was, but through my journeys through YouTube, I found Crash Course. I knew what it was, so I verified it as a credible source, and started watching. It was great! Even my sister enjoyed watching it, which is really saying something. Eventually, I saw a mug which I thought I just had to have. I started to type DFTBA in my browser (not even knowing what the phrase meant). Before I even got to the “A,” safari suggested DFTBA by Hank Green. I clicked on it, and found the magnificent album “This Machine Pwns n00bs.” I saw some other songs, including the ever-popular “We Are All Batpeople.” I wanted to listen to the whole song, so I searched it up on YouTube. I found “We Are All Batpeople,” lo and behold, above the name “Vlogbrothers.” I thought: Ok, they’ve got a personal channel, that’s cool, I guess. I seldom watched it. Every once in a while, I watched it. Then I started watching it more. I wondered, how do I become a Nerdfighter?“ That’s when I heard John say: "If you want to be a Nerdfighter, you are one.” From that moment on I was part of Nerdfighteria.
Thanks for reading this, DFTBA!
