We’re All Nerds Here

Everyone is a nerd.

You are a nerd. I am a nerd. No one escapes the nerd gene.

I know, there are lots of people out there you wouldn’t look at and think, “nerd,” but they are. I don’t define a nerd the same way dictionary.com does, which is:

a stupid, irritating, ineffectual, or unattractive person

an intelligent but single-minded person obsessed with a nonsocial hobby or pursuit

I suppose my definition of nerd leans closer to the second definition. However, if you took out, “intelligent but single-minded” and “nonsocial,” then you’d be spot on.

a person obsessed with a hobby or pursuit

We all have something that is ours, whether it is a hobby or obsession we share with other people or not. Sports, reading, fashion, baking.  Sailor Moon, the Seahawks, Superman, U.S. history. Angry Birds, George Clooney, Apple, role playing.

Everyone has something they love and know a lot about. Obsession might be the appropriate word. It might not be for you. But nerd?

Nerd is totally your word. Own it.
