i have the glasses to prove it.
i am not obsessed with star wars or twilight or anything signaling fanaticism, but i do love learning. some days i miss college-- not the tests and homework but the learning aspect-- of having your universe open with new ideas, history, and age-old theories. science and technology have never been my forte; i can't identify with chemistry and computer nerds but i believe i've earned my own right to nerdicism. i love words--reading them, threading them together on my own, learning their meaning, finding them in puzzles. i also love spending time in the kitchen. my friend once called me a "baking nerd". he joked that it was a good thing i was an excellent baker, otherwise i'd just be a weirdo excited about bundt pans and marzipan.
in my old age of 23, i'm embracing the nerdiness. are you an unorthodox nerd, too?
