  1. I typically prefer physical copies of books. They have the advantage of not running out of battery (my e-reader is pretty old and doesn't have a huge battery life), and because for some reason I abandon books way more frequently when I only have an ebook copy. Also, it's kind of a delicate balance for me with audiobooks and podcasts in terms of having just enough to do with my hands so that I don't get distracted by other things in my environment, while not so much that I get distracted by the thing I'm doing while listening. The books I get are a mix of one of the local bookstores near where I go to school and the library, since my book budget isn't huge right now. (Incidentally, I'm pretty sure that if you're near where I live and are having trouble with Firefight and Calamity being available to check out, it's probably my fault since I borrow them frequently to check details for fic projects and stuff like that)
  2. I get that too on my phone, though my phone still autocorrects a lot of Brandon Sanderson related words even when I use them a lot. (No, I am not interested in the Recliners Trilogy)
  3. -When you're in orchestra and the conductor says "terraced dynamics" and you hear "Terris dynamics".
  4. -When you look at a friend's sticker on their water bottle that says "Do Epic [Stuff]", and you can't help but think: "Please don't. That usually involves murder." -When you find yourself making bad metaphors even when you're not trying to make a reference. The other day, I compared a lab I was doing for one of my classes to the Great British Bake-Off. I managed to confuse everyone in the room while getting annoyed at myself that David was rubbing off on me. -When you look at a poster advertising a "Breath Exploration Workshop" and can't help but think of how cool an Awakening class would be.
  5. I'm good with what team I'm on. (Also, I should probably sign up to get Aether of Night as well)
  6. I think I'd be up for this! (If there's still room)
  7. Not sure about quotes in general (I remember there being some quite good ones, but can't think of any off the top of my head), but my favorite of David's metaphors is "like a brick made of porridge." That feeling sums me up way too well.
  8. @coltonx9 Thank you! I was thinking of maybe meeting outside the place so we can get the plus one figured out. What time are you planning on getting there?
  9. Does anyone have an extra plus one on their ticket that they're not using? I went to get tickets and they were sold out.
  10. When you start compiling a list of bad metaphors you hear in real life. The only thing on there right now is when a colloquium speaker compared active galactic nuclei in merging galaxies to exploding pennies. I think David would have been proud.
  11. Could a Seeker sense someone who was holding and benefiting from a large number of Breaths, or would the person actually have to be actively Awakening something for that to happen? (My best guess is the latter, but the wiki wasn't particularly clear on it)
  12. Geologists are great. I can't find fault with them.
  13. If any other Bozeman-area people were going and had room in their cars, I would definitely be interested in going. (I think that a three-hour event would be a bit short to justify taking a Greyhound)
  14. My favorite would have to be Forgery, since the concept of changing reality by changing the pasts of objects or people just seems really interesting to me, as well as the detail work that is necessary to actually pull it off. I think the magic system I would most like to have would be Feruchemy. I just think that the ability to store mental speed, memories, or wakefulness in particular could be really useful as a college student (no more forgetting that one critical equation on my equation sheet) , and there are a lot of other aspects of it that could be fun to play around with as well.
