Nerd Fighters Unite

06/07/2013

Today is the release of the Nerd Fighter Documentary.  There are so many feels that go along with this Documentary and it is super amazing.  It may not be the best shot or the most amazing documentary you have ever seen but it is because of that that it really encapsulates the essence of the NF Community.  It is because of this documentary that I want to share what it means to be a Nerd Fighter to me and I hope, if you are, you will share as well.  And, hell, even if you don’t consider yourself a Nerd Fighter please share a story with us about you (:

I am not even really sure how I decided I was “officially ” a Nerd Fighter it just kind of happened one day.   But the reason that I am so happy that I found this community is because for the first time I don’t feel like I have to apologize for who I am.  I have always been one to want to cut lose and make funny comments and then feel like I have to apologize because everybody is looking at me like I am not acting in an acceptable way

This is partly because I am much closer to the age of John and Hank than I am to standard Nerd Fighters.  So in life outside of the NF community acting out and being generally passionate about something is often looked down on.  And sure, because of my age I get the occasional sideways glance from somebody when they first meet me but after a few hours that all goes away and its like we have been friends for years.

The NF community is not perfect.  But in most communities if feels like you can only expect a 40-50% acceptance rate where as in the NF community if feels like you can expect a 85-90% acceptance rate.  It is because of this I will recommend the NF community to just about every single person I know.

I am just glad that I found a place to belong.
