In case you haven’t noticed, I am not cool.
I have never been cool, and I’m never going to be cool. And I am okay with that.
Today is my day. Today is national Embrace Your Geekness Day, and I’m calling out to all my fellow geeks and nerds to step forward and be yourselves!
I’ve wasted a lot of time in my life worrying about what other people think. I’ve worried about my hair, my clothing, my hobbies, my car, my house, and you know what? All it does is cost me heartache and money.
So if I don’t have the perfect shoes to go with my outfit or I never figure out how to apply make-up without looking like a rodeo clown or I saw Finding Nemo three times in the movie theater, so what? I’m still a good person at heart. I do my best to be kind to others, to work hard, and to take responsibility for my actions.
If living a life based on appearances while wallowing in credit card debt is the cool thing to do, then I’d rather be weird.
Who’s with me?
