Did you guys know there is a wikiHow that teaches you how to be a nerd? No lie. I am new to this blogging thing so I was looking around the internet for some helpful hints on how to get started, what people like to read about, and how to engage readers. In my searches I stumbled upon a page on wikihow.com titled “How to Be a Nerd.” Yeah, I have to click on that.
Firstly, I learned that I am more of a geek than a nerd or dork. Good to know. I have a lot of stuff I like to obsess over (you guys will see…) but I am not necessarily “academically inclined.” I am very socially awkward. Writing this blog puts my anxiety through the roof. But I love it.
Second, they basically tell you to be yourself. Check. Why would I want to be anything else? I am pretty damn awesome with my Supernatural and Green Arrow tees, Chuck Taylors, and The Get Up Kids on my iPod. If anything, other people want to be me. That’s sarcasm, by the way. I do that a lot.
Then they tell you to find things you like and once you’ve done that you should question it constantly and examine all the details.I know this because someone questioned it, another person examined all the details, and I found it on Pinterest (shameless plug: here’s my Pinterest.) But then I watched the episode 4 more times to find all the numbers.
Anyway, this wikiHow has a million (exaggeration) more steps to it that basically tell you to act like a nerd and dress like a nerd. Dress like a nerd? It actually says to “sport some ill-fitting clothes.” I don’t know about you guys, but I like my clothes to fit. I mean, I like them to have Star Wars on them…but I like them to fit.
It just goes to show you that you can find anything and everything on the internet. If you guys want to learn how to be a nerd you should check it out. Really, just read it for the laughs and then come back here and tell me what you think.
