Geek: Geeking it up!
There was a time not too long ago when being a geek was considered a bad thing, today it seems like there are geeks coming out of the woodwork. The geeks were the uncool people, the people others made fun of and teased in school.
What happened to make this the way that it is?
I’m putting my money on the movie “Revenge of the Nerds” that got the ball rolling. Well not really, but I guess I could have had some impact on getting some geeks out of the closet, maybe but I doubt it.
I think the geeks of the world united and banded together, I mean let’s face it with technology today if you don’t have any technical skills or don’t use a computer or a smartphone, then you’re the nobody. If you don’t know how to run your device you turn to a geek.
More geekery a Geek and Nerd paradise.
Today there are more conventions than I ever thought possible, there’s one almost every weekend. There’s more geeky stuff going that it’s impossible to take it all in.
Star Trek, Star Wars, insert favorite geeky TV show/movie convention. Comic con, game con, blah blah you could list them all night. What happened? I know what happened big business happened, but who cares they know that you are dedicated fans and dedicated fans spend money and that’s all there is to it.
I guess all I can say is that’s you should be thankful that your living in your geeky stage where it is acceptable to be a geek like it is now.
Geek / Nerd or whatever call me what you will.
I was the geek in heading in high school. I played sports and fit in and hide my inner geekyness, but I got my kicks creating cheesy games on my computer at home. I was secretly in love with calculus for at least 2 years, all I wanted to do was learn and learn more.
The only thing that I was missing back then was thick glasses, luckily I still don’t have those yet. I was still in hiding up until a few years ago, but I’m ready to come out and let everyone know I’m a geek!
A friend reading this over my shoulder just said “everyone knew you were a geek already”!
