Some Nerdy Things

nerd glasses

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?
