over half the people you know think you’re a crazy nerdy weirdo that gets way too excited about stuff. (mostly actors you fall in love with and obsess over)
Except you remember that John Green said:
“I mean Hank, the movie was great, but the thirty minutes before the movie started was what I love about being a nerd. Because nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff. We don’t have to be like, ‘Oh yeah that purse is okay’ or like, ‘Yeah, I like that band’s early stuff.’ Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can’t-control-yourself-love it. Hank, when people call people nerds, mostly what they are saying is, ‘You like stuff’, which is just not a good insult at all, like ‘You are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness”
AMEN John Green. Thank you for creating a community of people in which I fit in.
Can I just take this moment to say that I miss my friend?? A lot.
I mean seriously. Most of my other friends just….I’m not saying they aren’t great because they are…they just don’t fully get me.
Because, understand this, I know I’m different. I don’t make sense. I don’t have a “type” You can’t really put me in just one category. I like rock music. Not all of it. Heck not even most of it. But I still like it and it just seems like everyone in my immediate vicinity doesn’t. I obsess about actors, I watch movies over and over again, I’d rather read “The Chronicles of Narnia” a hundred times than read Moby Dick or The Grapes of Wrath once, I quote YouTube videos, I say the stupidest things, I’m naïve and gullible, and dorky, and I hate trying new things, I love to talk in the middle of a movie, and I could go on and on and on.
The point here is, I can be all those things, UNABRIDGED, without trying to hide my inner nerd, or my childish side when I’m hanging out with her and I miss it.
I mean, I get into a friends car and Lil Wayne’s on the stereo, or some other random new sensation that will last a few weeks and they are always surprised when I haven’t heard of it or don’t like it. Then I try to strike up conversation about something and everyone sort of jokes about it as if to say “Oh Mel, such a weird one aint she?” and YES. YES I AM. But jeez I need to be around someone who can appreciate it!! Who wants to be normal anyway? What’s so great about being a binge drinker, going out to clubs every Thursday Friday and Saturday night, having lots of sex, and watching MTV?
It’s like a BREATH OF FRESH AIR when I go to Brandi’s house and Seether is on the stereo, or Philip is playing music. It makes me smile because NO ONE ELSE around me enjoys ANY of that music and I love it when I’m finally surrounded by people who do.
And I just miss it.
Today is my 21st birthday!
Sad Day. =(
I miss him. *cries*
I think he comes back in Season 8.
When you don’t have what you want, want what you have.
So I found the absolute PERFECT job for me! It’s in the Small Animal Clinic at the Vet School as an Animal Caretaker! The job is basically cleaning cages, feeding and watering, mopping, stocking things etc. It’s 8am-12pm Monday through Friday and I’m assuming that the hours are more flexible with school schedules in the fall. If the job is still available for the fall/spring which I’m assuming it is.
Minimum wage, 20 hours a week, and it specifically says “Must be willing to work with snakes, lizards, birds, and all species of exotic animals” PERFECT. I’D LOVE TO WORK WITH THEM!!
Cross your fingers!!!!
