Nerds Rule!

The place for nerds!

is it worth it? <3

holla senoritas and gentlemen! So, after much consideration and listening to a fellow nerd, it has come to my attention that there is a lot of ruckus about who to like in the new spring season. Well, I’m hear to let you know that there are many things to consider before announcing to the world that you have a crush on a certain chico or chica. First of all, is he or she even in your league? Looking at chemboy’s post, you can see that everyone has a league, and picking someone who would never give you the time of day is definitely a waste of time, energy and fantasies. Second, is he or she a friend, or for that matter, a best friend? Allowing romance into such a close relationship could either make or break the friendship. So, consider the consequences of developing a crush on a best friend before everything turns sour, and you not only lose your new found crush, but a best friend, too. Thirdly, make sure who you like either talks to you in person, or via cyber means, such as text or im. Even if you and your crush happen to be a bit awkward in person, talking via text or im opens up a new medium to learn a bit about each other, and think about what you say instead of blurting out something stupid and irrelevant in person and then regretting every second of being with the person you like. When it comes to asking the person out, don’t be vague about it and make them have to ask your best friend to find out what you were really thinking by saying whatever you said. Be straight, concise, and to the point. Simply ask, “Do you want to go out with me” or “Do you want to be my girlfriend/boyfriend?” and try not to embarass yourself in the process. So that would about wrap-up my views on how to pick a crush for spring and summer relationships! Now go find that one person that makes your stomach to summersaults and just puts a huge smile on your face whenever you see them. Good luck Nerds!<3 you know you love me =)

and here’s a little something for those of you in love already..

so where did ‘nerd’ actually come from?

 Well, since we all seem to be ‘nerds’, I figured it could be beneficial to learn about the roots of the word. “Nerd” was first coined by Dr.Seuss in one of his most famous books ‘If I Ran the Zoo” , in which the narrator says he would claim ‘ a Nerkle, a Nerd, and a Seersucker too” Word of the use spread throughout the world, although meaning ‘square’ or ‘drip’, a dull person. It wasn’t until the 1970’s that ‘nerd’ pointed to the connotations and bookishness of social ineptitiude. The stereotypical nerd is intelligent but socially and physically awkward. In film and television depictions, nerds are disproportionately white males with glasses and braces. They typically appear either to lack confidence or to be indifferent or oblivious to the negative perceptions held of them by others, with the result that they become frequent objects of scorn, ridicule, bullying, and social isolation. Some nerds show a pronounced interest in subjects which others tend to find dull or complex and difficult to comprehend, or overly mature for their age, especially topics related to science, disambiguation, mathematics and technology. On the opposite end of the spectrum, nerds may show an interest in activities that are viewed by their peers as immature for their age, such as trading cards, comic books, or role playing games such as Dungeons & Dragons and other things relating to fantasy and science fiction. They are also stereotyped for being obsessed with Star Trek, Star Wars, and other science fiction shows or movies. Nerds are often portrayed as either obese or incredibly thin and nonathletic. Nerds are also portrayed as having symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder such as by showing an extreme devotion to following classroom rules.The favored drink of most nerds is Mountain Dew. This might seem a strange thing but there is reason behind. Nerds, are not home by ten o’clock. Nerds surprisingly are night owls. They will stay out until after dawn and it’s always doing the same thing: playing video games or playing Dungeons and Dragons. They have to get their energy from somewhere and Mountain Dew is full of sugar and caffeine. Even when nerds stay home, they are still up all night on the computer, playing video games or just playing video games. Starbucks and energy drinks are common staples for a nerd as well. So basically, that right there, is exactly what a nerd is =]
