Over the last week or so I have come to an odd realization that I am a nerd. I never realized this, and actually I have made fun of nerds my entire life…to be quite honest. When I finally realized that I was a nerd…in an odd way…I was surprised. How do you surprise yourself of who you really are? Thats a question I cannot answer. Maybe it was just denial? I have no idea.
Maybe you’re wondering where I came up with the concept that I’m a nerd? Well, over the last few years I’ve showed special interest in subjects that most teenagers don’t give a rats ass about. These subjects include religion, math, science, books, band, internet and computers, etc. Of course I knew that I found these subjects interesting, but I never put two and two together. So what made me actually finally realize this? When I was downloading band music the other day and rocking it out hardcore while my brother was over a playing a video game. This was the moment when it all clicked and I realized I’m a nerd.
So now I suppose the question is, is it a bad thing to be a nerd? I don’t think so. I think everyone is nerdy in some way shape or form. People find a passion that they love and cherish and in a way get “nerdy” about it. Of course there are the few people that have no passions and I have nothing to say about them cause they clearly have nothing to do with this topic!
So in conclusion, I am a nerd. I’m willing to bet you’re a nerd. If you weren’t in someway you probably wouldn’t be reading this now would you? Admit it! What are you nerdy about??
P.S. Do you prefer “nerd” or “geek”???
