I was a geek in high school. Not popular. Not cool. None of that. I didn't want to be, though. To be perfectly honest, I thought those people were idiots. Why would you want to be like them? They were dumb. And overly concerned with how they looked, what clothes they wore, what bag they carried, etc. I was more concerned with getting into college. Plus, I liked smart people. Especially since I was a smart people.
Things haven't changed. I'm still a geek.
And just to prove it, check out my awesome shoes. My brother painted them for me. It's ok, you can be jealous. See, even geeks think about the clothes they wear. They just like things a bit...nerdier.
