I Need to Do This.

Blog, that is. I am now settling down in the wonderful city of Chicago, Illinois, "joining the real world," and getting a feel for what life is like after college. I think there is the temptation to want to relive life as it was in college and miss all the great things that life after school has to offer.

It might surprise you to learn that I am living only one block south of the building I lived in as a freshman at North Park University. However, I only really feel the above-mentioned temptation when I am around campus. And believe me, even living one block away from campus is a whole different world. It is really great living in the same neighborhood that I grew to love in college, but to experience it not as a student, but rather as an adult. I still have all my favorite grocery stores and restaurants right at my fingertips.

I don't really know why I am writing this because I don't know who is even going to read it. I do think that I have missed out by not documenting as much of my life on here as I would like to. And I am going to need some help as I begin this post-college life. I don't know what I'm trying to say. I just felt like I needed to make a new post.

I am definitely a nerd.

Yeah, so I have been wanting to update for a while on how different my life is now. For now, I will just post the results of this awesome quiz that I took. I am definitely a nerd and I hope to continue to attain this. You should do this quiz also.

I will be posting a real update soon. Peace.

Pure Nerd
95 % Nerd, 13% Geek, 39% Dork
For The Record:

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.
You scored better than half in Nerd, earning you the title of: Pure Nerd.

The times, they are a-changing. It used to be that being exceptionally smart led to being unpopular, which would ultimately lead to picking up all of the traits and tendences associated with the "dork." No-longer. Being smart isn't as socially crippling as it once was, and even more so as you get older: eventually being a Pure Nerd will likely be replaced with the following label: Purely Successful.
