I'm A Nerd, Too:)

The word "nerd" has had negative connotations ever since I can remember, mainly because the majority of Americans tend to support the athletic and macho-centered lifestyle that has dominated American society for a long time. For many years, I was, and sometimes I still am, made fun of and put down because I don't engage in the high level of social behavior that society has deemed necessary in order to be "happy", but in the past 2 years or so, I've grown more and more, to accept who I am:) .
