It’s OK to be a Nerd.
If you’re using half your concentration to appear ‘normal’, then you’re not giving your full attention to whatever else you’re doing. – Magneto
I think one of the most annoying things in the world today is that people can’t just let a person be themselves. Everyone is different, but sadly a lot of people see their way as the ‘right’ way. And it may well be the case for them. But their way, isn’t necessarily the right way for everyone. I know this is particularly ironic coming from someone as opinionated as myself. But I saw this video the other day (I know it’s old! But I only just saw it, OK?) and I think it perfectly sums it up. Gotta love that Will Wheaton (in case you’re in a hurry, I’ve started the video from 1m26s).
