Hello dear friends! We’ve reached the middle of the week. Yahoo! In the spirit of hump day, I’d like to divulge some of my nerdiness all in good fun. I am a nerd and darn proud of it. In fact, I miss wearing my glasses after I had Lasik surgery. It made me look smarter and cuter.
Did you know…
Nerd Confession #1: I Love Lucy Obsessed
Oh yes, I can give you the entire Vitameatavegamin scene in one take. “Are you tired run-down listless? Do you poop out at parties? Are you unpopular? The answer to all your questions is in this little bottle.” My mom loved watching I Love Lucy so my sister and I grew up laughing to the antics of this crazy red head. I don’t care if I’ve seen the episode 100 times. If it ‘s playing on TV, I’ll stop everything to watch it once again. I crack up every time!
Nerd Confession #2: Ballet Daydreamer
In another life, I feel I was a dancer. I took ballet when I was a child, but, unfortunately, gave it up when we were going to begin on pointe. Years later, my ballet daydreaming began to compensate for this loss. When I am home and there is no one in sight, I put on a classical music cd and begin to do plies and arabesques as if I were performing at Lincoln Center.
Nerd Confession #3: Swallowing Pills Phobia
I know this makes me look more like a child, than a nerd, but it’s true either way. I detest swallowing pills. I have a mental block, which deters me from being able to take a pill, especially those horse pills ones. I am mortified of the moment when the doctor gives me a prescription with pills involved. I immediately begin to wonder, “How am I actually going to do this?” Still haven’t outgrown this one.
Nerd Confession #4: Forever a Student
Ever since I can remember, I loved being in school. I admit it – I kinda wanted to be the teacher’s pet. I have actually always enjoyed reading, doing homework and learning. It’s still true till this day. I am passionate about seeking ways to be better informed and improve my expertise. I never want to be stagnant; learning is a lifetime dedication. I miss being in a classroom and reading the material. It stimulates me and I love the concept of working hard to receive an award at the end.
Nerd Confession #5: Nap Time with Ma
I am 35 years old, but I’m not too old to be on a bed with my ma as she reads me a story in Spanish. In about five minutes, I knock out completely. Only my ma can put me in such a relaxed state with her presence and voice. I adore taking naps with her. When I take naps with my ma, I probably revert back to when I was five years old, but it feels oh so good.
So, now it’s your turn! What’s your inner nerd say about you?
