July 29th, 2009, 11:19 PM
I Guess im a proud nerd 2 lol (even tho i like sports) ^^
July 30th, 2009, 03:38 AM
I'm a nerd, but I don't really look it. ;o
July 30th, 2009, 04:30 AM
I would post here, but I'm not a nerd.
...wait, what? I posted? UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. I'M NOT A NERD, I SWEAR!
July 30th, 2009, 04:31 AM
Yes, I am a nerd. >.> The dumbassed kids at my school tease, so I just say 'better life.'

Well, I may or may not be a nerd. Some would call me a geek. I have varied interests, so I try not to limit myself to the nerd label, even if I admit that there should be no shame in it.
July 30th, 2009, 05:27 AM
I am i guess, i get called Boff at school because of my ICT work.
July 30th, 2009, 06:55 AM
I'm a nerd and a dork, and I'm proud of it. I usually blab out information my classmates doesn't know, and I'm more knowledgeable than them(I don't mean to brag, but it's true.)
July 30th, 2009, 06:58 AM
"Nerds have more fun."
Once I heard that statement, it changed my life. I realized that there's no point in being insecure in my identity as a nerd, because nerds enjoy life.
July 30th, 2009, 06:59 AM
why would I admit that I"m a nerd?
Anyways, I'm a Pokenerd I guess
July 30th, 2009, 07:02 AM
Poke/Sonic/TokyoMew nerd here =D
July 30th, 2009, 07:03 AM
Nobody cares what your label is as long as it isn't stoner (...my lab partner this year was one <<...he was arrested 'n' everything. bright guy, too).
What's that stupid saying...? Oh, I remember! "Be cool because nerds rule!" I always hated that, but...well, see, nerds can crossover with other labels (me...I work out), but geeks are the ones who tend to follow the Jedi religion or be adept with Java at 16. I feel sorry for that demographic. They're the ones who lack respect.
July 30th, 2009, 07:04 AM
I don't think of myself as being worthy of the title 'nerd'. I am a nerd in the sense of being the brainy kid in class, but I'm not nearly well-versed enough in nerd culture to fit in with other nerds (and win the hearts of cute nerdy boys). Gamer chicks make me feel threatened ._.;;
Maybe I'm a 'nerd lite'? X3
July 30th, 2009, 10:48 AM
I'm like an indie-scene nerd. I sit at home playing Pokemon and Zelda and I watch the Angry Video Game Nerd all day and night. Then I listen to songs from Cats nonstop, and after that I check the new movies, grab my boyfriend, and head to see one...but he picks it...he's more of a movie nerd than I am. Oh. And. And. And. I'm in theatre III and marching band. Tenor saxes ftw.
July 30th, 2009, 10:49 AM
I've been shy all my life. Nerd "status" followed me all the years. At least "nerdy" girls are smart enough to avoid the cool guys, LOL.
What makes me a nerd?
~I like Star Trek
~I like Star Wars
~I buy books on a regular basis (Harry Potter's; Indy Jones; Terry Goodkind; Stephen King; Captain Underpants; Berenstein Bears; Dr. Seuss)
~I say "Pokemon is cool no matter how old you are"
~I work at a fast food place...
~I can talk nerdy to you
~I hate HALO 3...
~I say "NO!" to blonde girls (they are VERY overrated)
~I next to never leave my house
~When at home, I "hide" in my bedroom. This causes the neighbors to forget I live in the area, LOL
July 30th, 2009, 10:52 AM
I guess I don't look like a nerd. But I totally am one.
July 30th, 2009, 11:09 AM
I'm a nerd who looks and shows it, and I'm not afraid to admit that I've been a fan of Pokemon for almost 10 years.
Though, some of my antics are non-nerdy, mainly the perverted-ness and the fact that I can be an all out jackass.
July 30th, 2009, 11:17 AM
Cool, a list!
~I like Star Trek This is clasical geek.
~I like Star Wars Geek/Nerd
~I buy books on a regular basis (Harry Potter's; Indy Jones; Terry Goodkind; Stephen King; Captain Underpants; Berenstein Bears; Dr. Seuss) Nerd
~I say "Pokemon is cool no matter how old you are" ...nerd phrasing.
~I work at a fast food place... Since when does that make you a nerd? If anything...wait, I shouldn't go there here.
~I can talk nerdy to you Know what a cruciverbalist is?
~I hate HALO 3... Don't know 'bout that one...
~I say "NO!" to blonde girls (they are VERY overrated) Yes! Nerd.
~I next to never leave my house Nerd Hermit
~When at home, I "hide" in my bedroom. This causes the neighbors to forget I live in the area, LOL [b]This isn't nerd...nerds can be this way, yeah, but this is moreso signs of teenage depression.
All in all, you should check yourself with some of these points.
and the fact that I can be an all out jackass.
What d'you call that? The nerds are sometimes the most blunt group out there (YMMV).
July 30th, 2009, 11:24 AM
I'm 17, and still love Pokemon as much now as I did when I was 8-9 years old.
Does that make me a nerd? =P
July 30th, 2009, 11:53 AM
Forgot to mention that I'd marry the original Star Wars trilogy. Not Han Solo or George Lucas-- THE TRILOGY ITSELF.
July 30th, 2009, 12:43 PM
Nerd is derogatory, where I come from.
"Geek" is a status symbol. I guess I'm a geek - a girl geek! I'm a computer technician, I play a ton of video games...and, you know, the stereotypes.
But I don't set out particularly to put that label on myself. I really just try to be me =|
July 30th, 2009, 07:05 PM
I'm a nerd in the sense that I'm academically intelligent yet socially stupid. This extends to me being a nerd in the sense that I spend more time in front of a computer than I do engaged in actual social interaction.
I'm not a nerd in the sense that I'm not particularly tech-savvy, nor am I big on reading books or into such entertainment franchises as Star Trek, Harry Potter, Dungeons & Dragons, or that majority of non-manga Graphic novels.
I'd call myself more or less an all-around loser.
July 30th, 2009, 07:15 PM
I may not be a nerd, but I'm also not popular. Although, that's probably cause the "cool group" at school were... well, they weren't very nice people.
July 30th, 2009, 08:23 PM
I am not a nerd
i think im more of a dork myself
A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

I'm a nerd in the sense that I'm academically intelligent yet socially stupid.
I'm almost the same, but I'm just as social IRL then on the net.
And no, just because I'm Physically Athletic DOES NOT,BY ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, mean I can't be a nerd.
Oh yeah, and I'm pretty freaking smart.(Super Nerd/Geek)
But when it comes to certain video games, I'ma SUPER nerd when it's needed. :)
I can be an Angry Video Game Nerd when needed, and my girlfriend hated me for it.....until I turned her into a gamer.
July 30th, 2009, 08:43 PM
I'm a bit of a nerd, but I'm not averse to social situations, either. I'm like an "accepted nerd". :P
July 30th, 2009, 09:35 PM
I guess I'm a nerd, but I'm not a weak defenseless kid who gets bullied with few friends.
July 30th, 2009, 09:51 PM
I am a nerd and I am proud! <3
Wings Don't Cry
July 30th, 2009, 10:13 PM
When I was 6 I loved Pokemon, 9 years later I somehow like it even more then I did back then.
Here some things that i think makes me a 15 year old nerd
Likes Digimon(don't know if this counts)
Dragonball Z(not sure about this one either)
Hates Halo(Damn proud about this)
Plays Blizzard games
Final Fantasy Ftw
Comic books, I still read Spiderman
Manga(these last 2 makes me more of an otaku w/e those are meant to be)
Star Wars, I suggested that we should watch 'The Phantom Menace' for our Film Study
I still play the Megaman Games
Breath of Fire
I've finished FF7, I'm not one of those guys who like it just because they've played up to the Gold Saucer, that's right I know Cloud was an emo kid
Transformers, I don't mean your anime transformers I mean the one from the 80s with over 10000 different transformers
I still have a Sega console
I get full marks in tests without ever studying once
I know who you're talking about when you mention Garland
I'm 15 and I'm more into video games than girls
July 30th, 2009, 11:18 PM
i am a nerd.. and i show it lol..
can't help it.. i have every new gadget there is on the market, touch phone, new laptop (getting a hp tx2z soon, touch screen laptop) i hang around with people everyone else feels weird about.. it's a pretty mixed group, girls, guys, gays, and other nerds.. but meh.. i don't let it get to me.. other people are just jealous because i am a) smarter than them and b) got more/better stuff than them (ie, huge brand new house, 8 computers in my house, 2 of them mine)
hehe.. and i know everything there is to know about a computer.. and every other bit of technology.. lol
July 31st, 2009, 05:00 PM
I hate to see dresses and long hair. I hate Anime and manga.
July 31st, 2009, 05:44 PM
I've been called a nerd, so I guess I am one. I like Legend of Zelda, so I guess that makes me even more nerdy.
August 1st, 2009, 01:27 AM
I've been called a nerd by many, and cool by many.
I'd say I'm a nerd, but to what extent I don't know. :/
August 1st, 2009, 05:18 PM
Not only am I a nerd (unconfirmed), but I'm also a martial arts expert, arms dealer, government hustler, pirate, and delicious trap (I didn't come up with that last one).
August 1st, 2009, 06:36 PM
I am either a nerd or a dork, depending on the circumstances or the mood of the labeler.
August 5th, 2009, 07:50 PM
I'm...not much of a nerd? Whatever...I still love nerds and if your a nerd, your ma hommie. CAUSE NERDS ARE BADASS AND COOL. CAUSE I SAID SOO.
Luckly for me...I don't really remember the stuff I liked as a kid very much. :/ As for my LOVE for POKEMON....it goes DEEP (dispite starting when i was around...12-13....lol kinda...). Only now is it starting to not be just mostly in my dream-self state...lol
Well, as a little kid...violent video games didnt scare me. :/ I kinda thought they were...pretty. Uhhh...does THAT count as 'nerdy'? o.o;
Also, I believe I liked the origional, live action TMNT...when I was about 5-7 years old. Also, I played sports like basketball and stuff outside a lot as a kid, but i'm not soo sure if 'tomboyish' trats IN GENERAL count as 'nerdy' for a girl...sooo...*shrugs* But I was always outside. In NATURE...and I liked bugs and collecting rocks when I was 9. They say that NATURE was reserved for MEN.....at the same time, I adored flowers....as long as they didn't have 5 petals. Rose, Dandilions, Sunflowers, Tiger Lilies, and, maybe Daisys...were all my favorites =) ^^
I also liked Digimon, Spider Man, DINOSAURS!, Monster Rancher, and, MetaBots when I was ABOUT (coulda been younger) 9....which may or may not be conciderably 'too late' to start being a tomboy. hmmm...
But I also disliked butterflies, stars, and, '5 petaled flowers' (About age 7?...i think). I OBSESSED over 'The Magic Schoolbus' (AND Arther, too...lol)....and I kinda liked my brother's hotwheels and legos a little better than my barbies (but tended to deney it), and, owned like, NO STUFFED ANIMALS (0_o; ). Yes...it sound's almost like I didn't even like/have 'cute' things as a kid. But...I DID....and my love for baby shows was the proof (and, thus, i started to PREFER 'cute' over 'pretty' starting from around age 8...with The Big Garage. but that love still...kinda embaressed me, soo, to this day, I have a hard time liking 'cute' things and 'pretty' things at the EXACT SAME TIME....thus, may be a huge reason as to why i'm not yet a total 'preppy' and have some sexuality issues.....and yet, I loove fairies, which are both cute AND pretty, but...in good ways.....lol i wonder if i'll ever fully accept my 'girly' trats or not...or just abandon them all together in the end. it's hard to say....but like it even matter's?).
I wasn't much into rainbows or lisa frank...but as i started preferencing 'cute' things over 'pretty' things, that started to...change dramaticly. Nowdays, i'd probably consider Lisa Frank....well you don't want to know. n.n;
And I was scared to play 'baby games' on the computer as a kid, too...I concidered it retarded to play a game i was pased the age level for 0_o; but, once...i swear...I almost played our old Hello Kitty game. She was always special to me as a kid, whether i'd admit it or not....*tear's up a little*
You should see ALL the stuffed animals/'cute' toys i have now....and i even try to play with them sometimes, e-heheheheh... ._.;
However...I LOVED My Little Ponies as a kid. And, somehow, they didn't turn me off my barbies. but maybe they turned me off other things...idk i only owned like 2 of them lol and a BUNCH of...baby dolls....lol which i started getting into around 9.
Also, my favorite animals were cats (like that matters?)....till I was about 15. Yea...
And my favorite color was pink. And, to be honist, I think pink is a little 'sexy' at times now, oddly enouth....
If I knew Kirby as a kid...I woulda had big time hots for him. *shooted*
And I ALWAYS watched my brother play his video games...they almost fasanated me more than 'girls' things did....maybe even did. But then The Powerpuff Girls came by annnd.....lol
I also LOVED to read as a kid...i'd read anything (espesally educational books or fairy tales/nursary rhymes...when i was in the mood). Nowdays, I practicly LIVE in the net...but, I also remember some rather...girl-ish things about me as a kid (okay...this may have already been posted).....
I always had to wear a dress. Pants were icky. I didn't like to wear skirts, oddly, and, wore shorts instead over the summer. It was odd...
I WAS, however, a little afraid to play video games till i was like, 9, though. :X lol...
I loved dress-up, and, fabric...but, fasion and clothes shopping ALWAYS bored me. D: And, horrified me, in fact...when I was 13 (ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS PLAY SOME VIDEO GAMES...)
I lived in the contrey till I was about 4 or 5, but we had no animals.
The 'rough' play of boys kinda...fasanted me a little. I guess i looked up to them...
Most of my childhood buddies were boys. And all the girls were TOMBOYS...pretty much.
I never seriusly drew myself as a Princess or imagioned BEING one. Or often drew Princesses in genneral. I loved Disney and their Princesses, however...but the age i fangirled at, i'll never tell you. I also liked 'The Adventures in Wonderland'....
I started wearing makeup when I was about 12. This one little girl I know irl, is like, 5...and already wear's play makeup AND has her ears perced. I never bothered with mine..lol the pain would frighten me anyways and I think stick-on earings are much cuter, really..D: Soo yeah.
I toke French as a kid...never really interested me that much, but it was fun. I did some ballet a home...but lost intrest quickly.
Some of the BEST moments in my WHOLE childhood...were of Role Plaiying POKEMON.
I liked The Power Rangers...the Pink one was my favorite, naturally.
Blossom was my favorite Powerpuff Girl...later on, it was Bubbles. Never cared for Buttercup that much, though...
ALWAYS loved Sanrio, and, heck, I STILL DO!
No longer into Barbie or Disney anymore...and celebrities/popstars ALWAYS bored me.
I rarely ever wear skirts irl. And I never wear dresses. But I like the color pink (but not as much as I like yellow..lol).
I was never much into Shojo manga through my teen years....I actually kinda was fasanted by Shounen like Naruto and DEATH NOTE :O
I liked cutting up fasion magazines as a kid and making toys with them. I also liked going to the beach and NEON colors. And scary legends were fun to read. Soo was being scared in genneral. And the idea of camping always fasanated me, but I never got to go...lol
I wanted to be 'perfect' in my mother's eyes...i guess i dun really remember.
More to come! Maybe....idk.....
And, duuude...I don't even KNOW what Halo is, but, why h-word it? Just use 'dislike'...that other word is too strong.....sheesh ._.; (what the heck IS halo, anyways? 0_o; a jock-only game or something?? Sheesh.....)
Overall...I admit, I kinda idolize/look up to nerds, and, admire the idea of being smart like you people....but, I don't like stereo typing. Who say's I NEED to be a 'nerd' to be an awesome Pokemon fan or smart person, anyways?
PS: I better end this post now...but yea~..lol
......Was I just writing my whole life story down? o_o;
I dunno...if I sounded more like a 'normal girl' or a psyco-pathic maniac. o_o;; I loved FIRE and pastel-colored rainbows a lot as a kid, too...and Sailor Moon.....
Somehow, I still adore Pokemon. AND cute things. And I...refuse to change. But my favorite animals now are dogs OKAY.
I don't plan on evolving my Pokemon Team in HG/SS....but i'll make up for that using my DS ACTION REPLAY SKILLS >DDD Because...cheating is your friends lol^^
~Posted by...whoever posted this looong and annoying entery xP
Think what you want---I'm still a nerd, whether you like it or not! Who cares if i'm not really into video games much or Shounen anime anymore...lol And, perfection is cheep...I guess.
I was also fasionated by guns, whips, dreams, and, Yo Mama. Ehh...without the Yo Mama part
I always kinda liked nightmares as a kid, to be honist...lol
I also think that hell sound's like a cool place for me to go when I die, and, chalanges fasanate me, too...kinda I guess lol whatever....
Why does a childhood even matter? A nerd is a nerd, no matter WHAT and stereo types are stupid. Just ignore my long, boring...whateever.
August 5th, 2009, 08:00 PM
After seeing the grammar of the first post I am apparently for the first time in my life ashamed of being a nerd...
... Meh, only lasted a few seconds. Having Math 3 years ahead, English a year ahead and having knowledge of programming languages count as a being a nerd right?
However, I have a few contrasts to the nerd stereotypes. For example: I am flirty, I play many instruments, I am SOMETIMES looked up to.
August 5th, 2009, 08:42 PM
Well, one of my friends calls me a Pokenerd, I could care less about fashion and celebrities and I'm not very social in real life...and I posted in this thread, so yeah, I occasionaly call myself a nerd. :D
August 5th, 2009, 08:48 PM
The day I show actual interest in 'fasion' is the day I won't be one of you AT ALL anymore...
August 5th, 2009, 08:52 PM
I ish retarded for a nerd so I can't be... proud.
Second Coming of Jebus
August 6th, 2009, 12:48 AM
Yeah, I guess I consider myself somewhat a nerd. I'm pretty awesome though, so yeah.
August 6th, 2009, 10:18 PM
I am a nerd. When some guy eventually manages to conquer the world, chances are he'll do it through brains and strategy, not bashing people's heads together. This person will have been called a nerd at least once in their life, which ironically may have contributed to their desire to take over the world . . . but let's not go there, eh?
August 7th, 2009, 03:30 AM
LOL I think I am, I'm not really sure. Majority of us are, so we're just fair at school.
ha-ha I like being it. o.o
August 7th, 2009, 03:45 AM
Yes, I am too a nerd. I get good grades, I know how to program in Visual Basic .NET, I know how to solve a Rubik's cube, I play WoW; yes, you can't get nerdier than that lol. Remember kids, nerds are the ones who grow up with all the money and girls, just look at Bill Gates as an example xDD
A Real True Winner Is Me

I am a nerd.
August 7th, 2009, 09:55 AM
Some of you dont really know what a nerd is...
August 8th, 2009, 06:36 AM
...wait, being a nerd is just about being smart and stuff? o_0; I thought that being 'tomboy-like' as a kid was a MAJOR leading factor to it....
I do SOME nerds things...like I like to read...and also i'm online. a lot. I'm very lazy about video games, anime, and, manga, though.....
I really dislike stereo typing as a whole. x_X; It can make people feel 'limited' or just plain 'left out'....in my case, I tend to feel left out. A lot. Because I doubt i'm much of what one would call a 'nerd'...*sigh*
Trust me...What I was like as a kid depresses me every single ef'wording day. D: But, at least it still seem's OK for me to like pokemon...for now, anwyays.....but i better start reading "Magical Pokémon Journeys" soon. I'm soo detecated to cuteness.....
August 8th, 2009, 10:12 AM
A nerd is a person whose life is absorbed by a certain activity or interest, so it applies to a lot of people actually, well, everyone non-boring at least.
A geek is the common stereotype of a nerd, but ultimately the people that take the piss are football (or something) nerds themselves, their life-absorbing interest just happens to be popular.
I'm a military nerd, much like Jack O'Neil if you've seen his posts, but I don't make it so apparent.
