I am a total NERD.
I'm coming to find out I'm a total nerd.
I first got the impression that I was a nerd when I started enjoying my physics class a lot this semester. I tried to maintain my aloof coolness by saying things like: "Nah, physics is pretty cool. I could chuck a baby off of that roof, and just by timing how long it took to hit the ground, I could tell you how tall the building is."
But then I realized that talking about throwing babies off of buildings isn't really cool at all, so I stopped doing that.
I really started to worry about myself when I would totally geek out when I got a physics problem right. I think the only time I've been happier since I got 100% on my physics homework was when I baptized someone on my mission.
I was still able to justify that, however, by telling myself that I just enjoyed the sense of accomplishment, which is totally cool thing, akin to landing a new trick on a snowboard or something.
But no. I can't avoid it any longer. I'm a nerd.
The convicting piece of evidence in my case?
I just watched this entire video, and thoroughly enjoyed it...
Don't try to save me from nerd-dom. I'm a lost cause.
(You might be a nerd too. Watch the video for 1 minute. If you're not hooked, then you're not a nerd.)
