One of the reasons for why I wanna be a writer is because of the experiences I've had with reading really good books myself. I really love being dragged into another world and completely immerse myself in it! Right now it's only 9 days until I'll watch 'The Hobbit' and I'm going to a Lord of the Rings-marathon this weekend - wuhu!
So I thought this could be an occasion of explaining the main lines of my evolution of nerdiness:
Of course I love lots of other books and movies, currently I'm kinda obsessed with 'The Godfather' and I'm watching 'The Walking Dead', which is good fun. Gotta love zombies, they're just so stupid and clumsy! I guess 'The Walking Dead' isn't the show around with the deepest dialogue or best story (I'm a big HBO-fan), but it's really entertaining and it looks like they've put some effort into it. Gotta hate Lori though...
Well, keep on nerding folks, see you at The Hobbit!
When you're working on something like a novel, it's always tempting to throw your sociology books out of the window and roar FRRREEDOM as you run into the sunset. Especially when you're in your 12th year of this endless institution and kind of wanna do something else than sitting in a room with no air and take notes about a subject you're not really interested in. Still, we stay. Yeah, Bill Gates dropped out of school. But I'm not Bill Gates. I can probably write and draw okay, but the truth is that finishing this stuff will take time, and in that time I'm going to need a 'proper' job. And in society today one does not simply get a job without education. That's why we grit our teeth and keep on to finish our 13 years of school, so we won't end up like this:
Anyways, these are my methods for not going insane:
However, as Hannah pointed out, we're not really sane. Sometimes we do rage and burn something or sacrifice a goat, but you know, I think we'll make it. Hopefully.
