I wrote this post while I was sitting in a room of my friends, with my earbuds in, blocking the world out. I was listening to music on high volume, with my huge laptop, typing this. I had no idea of what I was going to write about until I saw something on the whiteboard. (we’re in a classroom)
It was a drawing of Larry the Cucumber from VeggieTales.
For those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s a kid’s show with talking vegetables.
Totally a homeschooler thing to draw on a whiteboard, am I right?
The other thing was pi, written with a whole lot of digits. I don’t remember if pi goes on for infinity or if it’s just really, really, long, but this was a lot of digits. We started talking about homeschooler stuff, like VeggieTales and how we still sing the songs without shame, and the conflict between Math-U-See and Saxon. I realized, my friends, that I am a nerd.
Not as though I didn’t know this already, no. I knew I was a nerd, and I take pride in that fact. People try to insult me by calling me a nerd, geek, or weird, but I take pride in every one of those things.
Nerd and geek are both something that means someone very smart who obsesses over something, but weird is different altogether.
From a Christian perspective, here is what weird means.
Weird is pretty much the opposite of normal, and when God created us without sin, we were perfect to him. People say to be normal, you have to follow all the rules, live the stereotype life. But really, we were normal when we were sinless, and if nobody is without sin, that means nobody is normal. That means everybody is weird. That is my conclusion and my nerd session for the day. I will go be weird now. If you agree with my philosophy, drop a comment below and tell me so! I have rhymed, geek session for the day is over. Everyone, go live your lives and be weird!!
