Who Wants to be a Nerd!

Ahhhhh.  I am filled with sighs today.

Lately I've really aspired to the lofty title of "nerd".  As "Supplementing Your Summer" should have revealed to you, I tend to admire certain people, become fascinated by them, and then want to be like them.  Well....  Anyway, the evidence is not conclusive.  I like studying and so on.  What's to say that The Big Bang Theory has anything to do with it?

You know, it was the same thing when I was a kid.  Unpopular and impressed by boys, I wanted so bad to be a tomboy.  I told myself I was.  I was heartbroken when my mother told me I wasn't.

Well, so what if I'm a nerd?  I'm unsociable and like to read, learn, and work hard.  I like knowing tidbits of information about which no one else cares and which would almost certainly rarely come in handy.  I could very well be a nerd.  A person doesn't have to be a genius to be a nerd, nor unattractive, nor unstylish.  I suppose one could say that a nerd is someone who isn't "up to date" on the culture.  Certainly, I don't really dress like many of the other freshman, but there are many styles here, so I don't really stand out.  I used to be really out of style, but I've learned.  Maybe I'm like Sam Sparks.

 

Listen to me – trying to convince myself that I'm a nerd.  The truth is "nerd" isn't really defined definitively, and so I could be a nerd as far as the parameters stipulate: "an unstylish, unattractive, or socially inept person, esp: one slavishly devoted to intellectual or academic pursuits".  Now, I'm not a genius, per se – not yet....  *insertevilcackle*

Okay, well, if I'm going to be a genius, I better get back to studying!

P.S.  I'm sorry if I've been boring lately.  Since coming to college, things have changed.  I may be in a writer's block, or it may be that keeping up a blog for my family has been draining my creative juices.  I just don't seem to have it in me to write entries like the ones I used to.  Although, if you look back, it has been sometime since I've written like I used to.  Perhaps I've grown up.  I also have an unforeseen problem, as I try to figure out just how much of my real life I want to share.  When I was home schooled and living at home, there were precious few people I could compromise and few important events in my life that I should double think about sharing.  I was at a stand still, in a matter of speaking.  Nothing was changing very much unless it was intellectual.  Temporal changes are a little more delicate.  Furthermore, writing about my classes for my family makes it boring to write about for you guys, but I write in a different tone for my family than I do for you so I can't just cut and paste.  All the same, I am unwilling to give up on this blog, so don't go away!  I'll still be around.  Being a nerd, as we have now established, means that I have urges that must be taken care of – such as discussing Star Trek – which just can't be satisfied anywhere else!

  1. Is this a new layout? I don't think I've been over since you changed it; I love it! And I understand; I read a book called Divergent, and spent the next week trying to be Four, the silent but deadly person who always seems to be lurking in the background. It worked up until someone made me laugh, or started arguing with me, and then the whole emotionless thing just kinda went out the window...

    1. Boy, do I know what that's like! It's then that we have to (grudgingly) admit that maybe we need some balance. But it can be so frustrating! :)

    2. And yes, it is new. I wanted something that said "AUTUMN". Do you think I captured the spirit of the word?
