    Yes I am a nerd and I see nothing wrong with

    that. My friends are nerds and I love them for it. I have a friend that I kid you not as so many action figures still in the box and comic books that the only thing in his room that you can reach is his bed. LOL I love old school arcade games. So much so that my own son won't go...

    I was one of those kids in HS

    that obsessed with my grades and took all the AP classes that would benefit me in college. I wear glasses, I like playing video games, and I'm pretty downright weird, in a witty kind of way. I also Like school. Keeps me busy.

    As a kid I was somewhat an oddball in my class

    and at my school, I read a lot and had interests that noone else cared much about. My mom was frustrated with all my "phases", since it meant I wanted new toys and things for each phase I went through. I used the library a lot, I got books on paleontology to read about dinosaurs...

    And I am not afraid to call myself that!

    I love the old British comedies, Doctor Who, Star Trek, Harry Potter, music, movies, video games (console and pc), table top RPGs, history, and READING! Especially reading. There is nothing better than getting lost in the pages of a book. And even though I like watching movies...

    for fun, I memorize poetry and Shakespeare monologues in my spare time. I used to be afraid of being a nerd, I had always associated it with a negative connotation. But it's different now. I love being a nerd, I'm proud to be one. I love embracing the things that other people...

    I have straight A's and I love to search up new

    things. It's fun learning how things work. I guess I'm a nerd lol. At least I consider myself to be a nerd. I also play sports which I thought never worked out together but they do.

    Specifically, a Star Trek fangirl.

    I have a red dress (TOS) uniform and tricorder and I love to dress up and go to conventions. I wear my uniform with any good excuse I can find: Convention, Halloween, Star Trek movie premiers, etc.

    Word To The Nerds

    I am a nerd and I like it. I also hang out with other nerds. My friends and I find obscure nonsense to be interesting. If I'm home and not online you can find my nose in some sort of book.  I'm really interested in microbiology, viruses in particular. I'm also fascinated by...

    I Dislike People Calling Themselves Nerd When They Clearly Aren't

    I think that's what separates us real nerds from everyone else. Just because you play video games it doesn't make you a nerd. Just because you like some flavor of the month book to movie story it doesn't make you a nerd. Real nerds never limit themselves to one niche. Nerds love...
