Nerd Alert

I don't think there is anyone out there that likes to be called a nerd. But I am perfectly fine with admitting that I've got some major nerdy tendencies.

{Tee: Forever 21 (old), Shorts: H&M (old), Sandals: Zara (old), Necklace: Olive + Piper (giveaway win from Rick), Bracelets: David Yurman, Forever 21}

First let's talk about how fun this necklace is! It's cute, quirky, and charming... just what I needed. I started wearing glasses when I was in 3rd grade. I remember being so embarrassed. Of course no one cared. Nowadays I'm usually in contacts, only because I can see better in them. I'm no longer embarrassed to wear glasses and I'm even ok with admitting that I have some hidden nerd-like traits.

1. I'm really good with computers and most electronics. I never took any classes but I'm always able to somehow easily figure my way around.

2. I love wikipedia. I always have to read about the tv shows or movies I watch on wikipedia afterwards so that I can make sure I didn't miss anything. Plus I like to read random fun facts when I'm bored.

3. I enjoy the History channel. There are some really interesting shows and I've learned so much!

4. I have a giant rear view mirror in my car. My dad got it for me when I got my first car and I've just kept and transferred it to my new car ever since. My husband always makes fun of me and says how it's big enough for me to see Hawaii in there. Whatever.. I can see all my blind spots without having to turn around, so there!

So what about you, do you have any nerdy habits?

I started wearing glasses in the second grade and I was SO embarrassed. Fast forward 10 years, and all of my friends were wishing they had a reason to get glasses haha. Funny how things change!

You are too funny! That necklace is adorable! And I so need a giant rear view mirror. :)

Ricademus said...

That is a cute necklace, like all glasses it's cool! My kids have their moms vision--all of them started wearing glasses very young. Which is fine, because they're cool.

Having that natural talent with electronics is a blessing. My father-in-law calls regularly to complain that his TV doesn't work--he keeps accidentally changing the TV channel instead of the cable box channel. The poor man doesn't have that natural ability.

In a post a few weeks ago I mentioned my reaction to a scene in the Walking Dead, that it revealed I have nerd-like tendencies. But when a commentor jokingly wrote "Nerd!", my first reaction was "Hey!!!". Then I remembered I'd called myself one, so it was okay. :)

PS - There's a SMithsonian channel. Not quite as good as the History channel, but there's some interesting stuff on it.

Jen said...

Cutest necklace ever! I'll admit that I was kinda nerdy in school...it didn't help that I got glasses in grade 3 too. I was thrilled when I got contacts in grade nine and haven't looked back since. One of my nerdy traits is I'm able to memorize info really quickly, which totally helped in university. I'd be lying if I didn't say I've spent time reading stuff on wiki...it can be really interesting lol!

Fun necklace! I started wearing glasses when I was three years old and I'm a physician which pretty much sums up my nerdiness. :D I think it's so fun to talk to people about their nerdy passions. I once met a furniture cleaner who called herself the "fabric whisperer". She knew everything about fabrics, stains, and cleaning techniques... it was amazing!

I think I'm guilty of some of the nerdy things you do too except to have a rear view mirror to see the whole of Hawaii. Your hubz comment made me laugh.
