Something inspired me to make a post specifically about nerds. Basically it's this quote I found of John Green pretty much summing up the whole "nerd" community.
If you don't know who John Green is, first of all 'HAVE YOU BEEN LIVING UNDERNEATH A ROCK'. Secondly, he is an author, and runs a youtube channel with his brother Hank (check it out here). He has written many books including the infamous "The Fault In Our Stars" which is now a great film.
Lately I have been thinking about insults a lot. Particularly people who call other people nerds. I myself have been called a "nerd". And so whenever someone calls me that again I finally have a comeback! But, I never considered being called a nerd an insult, it was just a word that described someone and I was okay with that.
Thinking of nerds got me thinking of insults in general. I mean most insults are not very good. For instance let's go with "lame". Even the word lame isn't that great. It's like saying oh you have a slight lisp. Steven Hawking gets a computer to talk for him and he is doing pretty okay. Never be ashamed of your own intelligence.
Basically what I am trying to say is that being a nerd is pretty cool. And right now I am just PRAYING that I haven't made spelling or grammar errors in this post! Being who you are should not be classed as a crime.
Be who you are.
Be proud of who you are.
P.S. I'm listening to the Frozen soundtrack for the eight thousandth time (hand up if you know what I'm talking about) and I swear it never gets old. Okay, I'm going now.
