I Don’t Feel Nerdy

Interesting title to a post, right? I thought so.

What is “nerdy?” What characteristics does a nerd possess? I’ll name a few that I possess.

First nerdy thing about me: I like Star Trek. Yes, I said it. I love Star Trek TNG (The Next Generation). I don’t like the original version, though. The one with Captain Kirk. I’m not really sure why I don’t like it. I just don’t.

Second nerdy thing about me: I love to read. Especially non-fiction. Even more especially, books about science, mathematics and physics, as well as philosophy and politics.

Third nerdy thing about me: I’m obsessive about numbers. Statistics. I think I’ve mentioned somewhere in a previous post in this blog that I have a statistical database with numbers involving how quickly I run freight at work… that dates back to February of 2006. And that’s only scratching the surface of my number addiction.

Fourth nerdy thing about me: I like video games. Right now, my favorite game is Fight Night Round 3 for the XBox 360.

This is hardly a complete list, but now I think I can explain the title of this post a little better after including it. I don’t feel nerdy. Does that make sense?

If I were to remove myself from this picture and only look at those 4 traits, I would think that person was a complete nerd. But, I don’t feel like a nerd. I just feel like those are things that make up who I am, and I’m still awesome. Not a nerd.

I listen to awesome music. Tool is definitely not nerdy music. I like rap. Classical. Pretty much anything.

I’m not sure what got me thinking about this, but I found it interesting that most things that I enjoy, if I were to see someone else enjoying them, I would file that person in the nerd category. Am I in nerdy denial? Can you do nerdy things without actually being a nerd?

Well, that’s all I’ve got. Let me know what you think.

Also, read a book for once in your life.
