    because you can wear what you want, say what you want, hangout with who you want, while being cool kid, you have to wear cool clothes, say cool words and hangout with cool kids. When your a cool kid you don't get to be yourself, as in when your a nerd you can be who you want to...

    I am a complete and utter nerd.

    AND PROUD!!!! If I'm called a nerd at school I laugh at them and say "thank you." As if receiving a compliment. A nerd is technically just somebody who knows a lot about something. So if knowing a lot about something is a burn.... I love to game. I am a gamer girl at least up...

    There are those nerds

    who memorize a thousand digits of pi, because it's how many digits are on the last page of their math book. I'm that kind of nerd who refuses to memorize any digit of pi, but instead keeps the first 39 digits of pi saved and ready to use in his programs, because you only need 39...

    Whilst having urges to rebel,

    I pride myself on my knowledge on Sherlock, The Hunger Games Books and stuff like that I also quite enjoy maths, my friends think there is something wrong with me for that but I simply find it soothing when I can work out a tricky problem.

    I'd rather stay at home and spend hours gaming. I'd rather visit the library. I'd rather read up on a new insect discovery. I'd rather be watching a show about something paranormal. That's me in a nutshell and this story is done.

    People fear me. Not because I'm strong,

    but because of my words. The dumb fear the intelligent just as most people fear the unknown. It's not hard for an intellectual to manipulate the puny mind of an individual living in oblivion. If one plays their words correctly, a fight can be one before it ever started.
