Nerdfighter Note Project
Yesterday, May 6th, was the Nerdfighter Note Project. I've been into Nerdfighting for a while now, and thought this was a perfect first project to join. The idea is basically that you hide cards within books to tell people about Nerdfighteria. Or, as we like to put it: To spread the awesome.
Since the whole idea I love about Nerdfighters is that we like to decrease worldsuck, I decided to write some inspirational quotes on my cards. Obviously, I drew them from some of my favorite Nerdfighter-related films and books. I chose six quotes and made two cards of each quote (so twelve in total) that I distributed in two different book stores in my city (Haarlem).
I used some soft pink cards and added stickers that I thought fitted the quotes (for example, this is a quote by the 11th Doctor and the sticker has a bowtie!)
This is what I wrote on the back of the cards.
A notecard in Ransom Riggs' Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. I tried to hide all the cards in Nerdfightery books :)
I actually felt kind of nervous hiding them in the books, like I was committing a crime or something :') But we didn't get 'caught' and everything went fine and I really loved doing it. I enjoy the idea that I put them there and will never know what happens to them and that someone might find them there and will never know that I have put them there. I hope they brighten someone's day!
