Get to Know Me Tag

Saw @maychorian​ did this, and it looked like fun! :D

Relationship status: Married to a guy who is also my best friend. We’re nerds. It’s awesome. But first and foremost, we’re best friends. I keep thinking it’s weird saying I’m his wife because whenever I look at him I’m like, ‘Oh, right, yeah, we’re married, and that’s super awesome, but bascially we’re really nerdy friends together.’ :D :D <3

Favorite color: I love to look at bright and vivid colors, but I usually gravitate towards dressing in more neutral colors. Deep sapphire blue is my all-time favorite, but I also like dark browns, elegant black, and deep blood red. :-)

Pets: None, mostly because I’m deathly allergic to cats (no joke, I sort of start to swell up like a balloon if I’m around anyone who even owns a cat and have to exit the room) and dogs, while adorable, are not something I grew up with. Maybe at some point we’ll get a pet, but sadly, it won’t be a cat, because if it was, I’d die. *sigh*

Last song you listened to: ‘Something Just Like This’ by The Chainsmokers and Coldplay (I posted a link to it in an earlier post) :-)

First Fandom: I saw ‘The Fellowship of the Ring’ NINE times in theaters. NINE. In my defense, that year sucked for me in my personal life, and being able to jump into an epic story about friendship and fighting evil was a nice break from all the shit that was going down. My username here and on AO3 and on Fanfiction (Rangergirl3) is something I came up with because I have always LOVED the Rangers (Dunedain) in the LOTR universe. :D 

Hobbies: Writing (both fanfic and original), trying to draw, doing various crafts - which include cross-stitch, embroidery, knitting, and writing out poems or favorite book/movie quotes on canvas with charms and painted backgrounds or details, going for runs to my favorite music, and drinking lots of coffee.

Currently reading: Well, if we’re including audiobooks (which is what I listen to non-stop while crafting) it’s the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher - currently I’m on Book Seven, ‘Dead Beat’.

I’m trying to tag everyone I can think of but feel free to do it if you want to! :D :D @teenage-mutant-angsty-zukos @havetoomanyfandoms @noisypaintersong @reborn-imagines @jpnpr @jenasisity @avidbeader @thegalrahobbitofplanetgalifrey @zenthisoror @dragonluvr5 @butteredonions

Ok but can we talk about how important Ludi Lin’s character is in Power Rangers like oh my god here we have this incredibly attractive ASIAN MAN who isn’t attractive because of his race and who isn’t a stereotypical nerdy unattractive Asian man but is really attractive and flirty and badass but also has a realistic soft side because he loves his mom and takes care of her because she’s really sick and isn’t afraid to scream to the world “I LOVE MY MOM” and isn’t afraid to admit that he’s scared that he’s scared for his mom and is lonely and is also undeniably Chinese but also undeniably AMERICAN because yes Asian people can also be American and omg I just can’t rn his character is a BLESSING

A short “ comic strip “ for a Jock!Cole and Nerdy!Jay. Yeah. I couldn’t come up with any good names so.


“ That was a really good game Cole! Good job! “ - Person A

(But you guys sure are swarming.. I need some space.) - Cole

“ Thanks guys, it wasn’t too difficult this time. “ - Cole

(Inaudible) - Jay

“ H-hey Cole.. Good job out there. “ - Jay

(Cute..) - Cole

“ T-thanks Jay.. Glad you think so.. “ - Cole

Things that confuse me about Star Trek:

The Enterprise-D doesn’t have a Chief Science Officer. It’s a massive ship with exploratory purposes and there’s no Chief Science Officer. Even DS9 had a Science Officer, who was assigned before anyone even knew there were new scientific opportunities there. For a ship whose purpose is finding new scientific stuff, you would think there would be a Science Officer

Another thing I love about Yuri on Ice Yuuri’s glasses aren’t an aesthetic thing. They aren’t there to show as cute little nerdy guy. He just really can’t see well without them. When he takes them off to skate it’s not to show he’s a gorgeous confidant man (he totally is tho) NOPE, he takes off his glasses because it would be impractical to wear them while skating. He probably doesn’t wear contacts because he doesn’t like them. It’s great.

My roommate trying to motivate me to wake me up

Her: You know, Alexander Hamilton would get out of bed on time

Me, mumbling into my pillow: Alexander Hamilton was far more concerned with getting into beds than getting out of them

Lena Luthor Headcanon: She’s a super huge nerd in her private life. Inspired by the fact that Katie McGrath is a huge nerd in real life, I can’t help but picture Lena Luthor, in private, fangirling over heroes like Supergirl and The Flash. And she was super horified by Lex, not only because he’s crazy af. But because he was trying to kill an nerd culture icon. And being really into movies/tv/comic books. She’s this regal CEO, but in private she’s just a fangirling dork. 

“Hey!” Kara descends into crazed laughter, her arms wrapping around her now aching sides.

Lena rolls her eyes with a broad smile spread across her face, reaching for a dishcloth to wipe off the flour Kara graciously swiped on her nose. Baking with Kara was hardly worth all the trouble; she can hardly keep her fingers from the bowl of batter and she takes every chance to clap her hands, coated in flour. But, it was a relieving break from the systematic baking Lena was used to: following the recipe with ease to light music on the speakers. Kara provided the music this time around, selecting a jaunty rock playlist, perfect for her air guitar antics. Lena would usually be annoyed by such erratic and goofy behavior, but she knew she had never before smiled this much.

My phone vibrated and i was like yes! a friend possibly? I am not alone!…. turns out it was an email from tumblr saying congrats on a solid 10 posts on tumblr.

~A Series of Dan Complimenting Phil’s Game~

•"We’re playing this cause it’s a game that you made but I’m actually having quite a lot of fun”

•"This is a fun game.”

•"Just draw it yourself, Phil; I’m sure it will be really good!”

•"That’s so like, nerdy and adorable but also really cool.”

#100studytips & #100daysofproductivity STUDY TIP!! STUDY TIP!! NO. 2. TAKE YOUR NOTES BEFORE CLASS. This is a follow on from yesterday’s tip :) It’s just to emphasise the importance of actually taking your notes  (i.e. from text book) about the content being covered BEFORE the next class or lecture. And then just supplementing your notes from extra info in class. It’s kinda nerdy, but it really is soooo worthwhile. And WHY would we nerd-away and do this anyway? Well, a few reasons…

1. Following on from Tip 1, you write less in class, therefore listen more. This increases understanding on the stuff covered in class. 

2. It improves memory recall for later when you have the exam.

3. Classes suddenly become (semi or a lot) more interesting.

4. … because you’re engaged. If you’re not engaged, things get pretty boring. And you fall asleep.

5. You will feel like an absolute legend in class, and feel empowered. Great feeling!!

6. And, you are super pre-prepared for the upcoming exam in weeks to come. So when it comes to revision… yay, super easy!! 

Hope this helps… More tips to come :)

I'll Never Understand Fashionable Girls
  • *nerdy girl and popular girl walk into bathroom together*
  • Popular Girl: *puts on make-up in the mirror* I watched that show you're so into last night.
  • Nerdy Girl: You have! I knew I'd convert you sooner or later!
  • Popular Girl: I didn't really like it.
  • Nerdy Girl: Seriously!? Come on!
  • Popular Girl: Like, the effects are really bad and the plots don't make sense. The British accents are weird too.
  • Nerdy Girl: The effects are part of the charm. You have to actually pay attention to the plot. Also, British accents rule. It's how real English is supposed to sound.
  • Popular Girl: *puts on lipstick and smacks lips* It's just not my thing. I don't like sci-fi space stuff. I like action and drama. Realistic stuff.
  • Nerdy Girl: Speculative fiction tends to influence science, so everything you're dismissing now could possivly be very realistic in a few decades.
  • Popular Girl: I don't pay attention to that stuff. I like the here and now.
  • Nerdy Girl: *sighs* Whatever, enjoy being boring.
  • Nerdy Girl: *notices a string coming out of the nape of popular girl's neck*
  • Nerdy Girl: *lightly tugs on string*
  • Popular Girl: *stops moving entirely*
  • Nerdy Girl: Are you alright?
  • Popular Girl: *remains silent and still*
  • Nerdy Girl: *completely pulls string out of popular girl's neck*
  • Popular Girl: *disappears in a puff of smoke*
  • Nerdy Girl: ...Oops.
  • *a decade ago*
  • Some Lady: I think I'm the only one who can see it.
  • Friend: See what?
  • Some Lady: The knitter. It's sitting up on that building there. It's huge, and it's just knitting.
  • Friend: What does it look like?
  • Some Lady: It looks big and pregnant. But, it's stomach is made of yarn. It's just knitting. People, animals, buildings, clouds. Millions of things.
  • Friend: That sounds weird.
  • Some Lady: I think it's god.
  • Friend: Mmm.
  • Some Lady: There's nothing on the horizon. Like, there's nothing beyond it. Everything just starts where it sits. Now that I think of it. I've never been beyond that building. There's nothing but white out that way. Emptiness.
  • Some Lady: *looks at fuzzy yarn hands*
  • Friend: *lights up cigarette*
  • Friend: The I-95 takes you into Baltimore that way. But, you should write a book about that before anyone else does. I'd read it.
  • Some Lady: I don't like to write about what's on my mind.
  • The Knitter: *opens third eye on its belly*
  • *in the present, a week after our initial events*
  • *missing poster with popular girl's face is blown away by a careless wind*
  • Nerdy Girl: *stares at string on her desk*
