How My Fandoms Help Me Survive

However bad things get, however lonely I feel, I know, that Hogwarts will always be there to welcome me home.

A witty remark by Chandler can cheer me up any time.

Ted Mosby gives me hope, he makes me believe.

The Doctor tells me that there is so much out there that is yet to be seen, things that are yet to be discovered, yet to be experienced.
He makes me see that humans are brilliant!

Sherlock teaches me how to put my emotions aside and focus on the bigger picture, to use my brain and form a plan. Sherlock teaches me to think.

The Hunger Games show me that it’s never going to be quite that bad and that, in spite of everything, the survivors live. And that it’s always better to have lived than to have died.

Well, this is straight from my diary and so it is also a little unpolished but I didn’t want to change a single word.
It’s something I wrote a few days ago when I was feeling really low and hopeless and demotivated.
It is a little different from what I usually post on my blog.

It’s true though, what I’ve written about the fandoms. And it’s not just fandoms, but the things I do, like write, learn new things, paint, etc. but I suppose that’s for another day!

Just thought I’d put it out there for muggles who don’t understand my fandom obsessions, but more importantly, for my fandom people who may feel the same and understand me, or will feel better after reading this.

P.S. I didn’t add Nerdfighteria to it the other day because I got interrupted while writing, but this is what I wanted to write (it sounds more cheerful now, but I remember that it felt a little solemn when I had thought of it that day, so I guess a few words have changed in the span of last few days) :

And I know that if all else fails, I can always turn to Made of Awesome Nerdfighters for help- my super amazing friends with whom I communicate only via the internet (mostly). 

“…much of what was said did not matter,

and that much of what mattered could not be said.”

It’s February already!

Among other things, it’s time to recommend a book to The Introverted Schmuck for our Book Blog Challenge Thingie.

Good news is that a friend of mine, Tanvi, who blogs at Anything and Everything has also decided to join us.
As for her, she gets to pick whose recommend she’ll go with, mine or Mia’s.

So I don’t know if she’s going to choose the book I recommend or the one Mia makes me read.

Well, the book I am asking Mia to read this month is Behind The Beautiful Forevers by Katherine Boo.

I happened to read this book because it was the Nerdfighter Book Club book last year around May or June…
And, for once, I thought I’d participate.

The book is amazing. It makes you think and wonder and ponder.

Mia’s review/ thoughts on this will be an interesting read.
(Yours too, Tanvi- if you choose this one)

Well, looking forward to Mia reading it and if anyone out there is looking for a recommendation, read this book. 🙂

What the eff is Nerdfighteria?

This is a totally unplanned post.
Like, it’s not even a real post, but I need to get this out there on the internet somewhere and my blog is perhaps the only place where I’m even semi- active.

A friend asked me about Nerdfighteria, because she has read a few John Green books and I always tell her how awesome John Green is as a vlogbrother as well.

This is what happened:

Okay so there might be a typo or two in there, but you know what I mean!
And I could probably say a lot more except that I realized she won’t understand any of it and I might just put her off instead of recruiting her to Nerdfighteria.

The picture used as a wallpaper is this picture of __ in case you’re wondering:

Now you can stare at him for eternity...

The best part though, is her reply (My friend’s, I mean) 😀

She said:

Potterhead that she is, she spells “Siriusly” as “Siriusly” too.

(Well, don’t expect me to spell it the Muggle way just so you’re clear! 😛 )

So yeah, what I’m announcing in this post is that a new Nerdfighter will soon join us all- just let her watch a few videos.

Although, as John says, if you wanna be a Nerdfighter, you probably already are a Nerdfighter.

See you soon (Hopefully. Sometime.)

DFTBA!

Friday Picture (Should I Be Changing The Title Maybe? )

Friday Picture (Should I Be Changing The Title Maybe? )

I have no clue as to who had this brilliant idea- but as a fangirl, I must make this happen!

All you amazing people out there who are part of some fandom or the other, let’s do this!!!
If I see any of you around my vicinity, rest assured we will become great friends.

The whole concept of Fandoms has given me something I cannot even express in words.

I started last year by believing that- They are not strangers if they belong to your fandom, and that is undoubtedly, one of the best things I did.

Fangirls and fanboys everywhere, Tumblr, Facebook, Ning, are such supermegafoxyawesomehot people: Inspiring me, making me laugh, cry, giving me a sense of security that I am not the only crazy one (In fact now I have started to feel that I am not crazy enough- I NEED MORE CRAZY!) out there- and that isn’t even half the stuff they have unknowingly done for me!

Reblog this, I guess- if you want to spread the message too.

So much rambling! How’s that for a blog post that is supposedly a picture?

Video

John Green did his Happy Dance!!!

Good morning people, it is Sunday. (Just go with it!)

I had written this post about the movie ‘Stuck in Love’ three (or so) weeks ago in which I, quite strongly I might say, put forth my views about how people should react when their story gets selected for publishing. Or just, you know, things like that.
I have become an official Nerdfighter since a week now (or maybe more- I’m really not good at timelines, am I?). I have been obsessively watching Brotherhood 2.0 videos by both John and Hank Green.
French the llama! Why didn’t someone tell me about them on January 1, 2007???
I feel like I’ve missed out on a lot now and am trying to catch up quickly. And whatever actually!
It is just so much fun!
I’ve got quite a lot of favorite videos now, and I was planning to post one on my blog. But just one! The choice was killing me. And therefore I didn’t do it.
But now I am going to- not as a vlogbrothers video but because it is about one of the posts I have written. I must do it for the benefit of the readers. (That is how I am justifying it, because this is by far not the last one I post- there are so many more to come!)
So yes, getting back to the topic, this is the video of a video of when John Green got the call telling him that his book “An Abundance Of Katherines” was selected as a finalist for the Michael L. Printz Award.
And well, his reaction is flawless. This video is the perfect example of how, according to me, people should react (also what their spouses should do when such a moment arrives- because honestly, if not for The Yeti, we wouldn’t have this video right now!).
This is IT- the video after watching which, whatever little doubt I had of adding John Green to the-most-awesome-people-I-know list has vanished. (There is no such list, but I’m going to make one now, just after watching one more vlogbrothers video. What? Don’t look at me like that! Have I never mentioned I majored in Procrastination?)
P. S. I finished reading Looking For Alaska last night (or early morning? I think it was around 2 a.m.).
All I can say is *spoiler alert* :
I DON’T BELIEVE HE KILLED OFF A CHARACTER IN HIS DEBUT NOVEL!!!
[Okay.
Take a deep breath.
It is okay.
Calm down.
No need to turn into a giant squid of anger now.
You finished the book.
It was beautiful.
And you love John Green.
It is okay. (Yes pathetic that you are, you can’t help thinking of TFiOS every time you say ‘okay’)]

P. P. S. Might I just add? Watching all the videos I realized that maybe, just maybe, I like Hank better than John Green. Not really. I mean, I can’t choose between the two, but sometimes I do feel that.
And also, there is an author-reader loyalty at stake here, so I cannot, on principle, say that.
It isn’t even true. But at times, I feel Hank is much more hilarious. And Hank and The Katherine are on the way to becoming my OTP really soon.
Anyway I gotta go watch at least 394 more awesome videos by the duo!
I’ll see you next time and DFTBA!
Hahaha!
