An insight into the life of the average nerd

5.6.08 by Deus

I, being a rather average individual who spends much of one’s time in the process of contemplation and study, hereafter known as “nerd”, think that I have a certain insight into the matter.

There’s the issue of dedicating one’s time and energy to study. I think that that is a very honorable cause. In the long run, education (as opposed to shopping, partying, “hanging out”, ingesting alcoholic beverages, et cetera) helps. Of course, the other homo sapiens in one’s environment may not view it as such and can be very abusive when they believe that it will enhance their social image if they publicly denounce the nerd’s point of view. Thankfully, I am not part of such an institution, but that does not mean that others are not.

Then I must point out the issue of general friendship. The average nerd appears to get along quite well with most, yet lacks the kind of social life that most others have (i.e. the aforementioned shopping, partying, hanging out, boozing, and so on). This is most likely due to the necessity to keep the right mindset for school, as well as the fact that the average nerd considers education to be more important than such trivial aspects of teenage life as dating and large-scale socialization.

That would be all for now.

The castle of Oliland is in progress of being built and it doesn’t look much like a castle at the moment. The King of Oliland is Oliver and everyone should know that (the name practically gives it away). This is what the King has to say about my writing this:

I feel good that my Kingdom is being exposed to the press. I need to get the word out because we have been obscure for the most part (we have 14 citizens). I also have to say that Oliland is good and peaceful (we don’t have any weapons). We do not write normally, we write in pigsty code. Hopefully my squire will translate this speech into the English alphabet.

Oliland is a very interesting place, filled with plants, animals, and two automobiles (leg-powered). We try not to use electricity. Oliland’s garden grows tomatoes, garlics, strawberries, blueberries, spinach, cilantro, lettuce, peppers, potatoes, squash, basil, and an assortment of non-edible flowers.

That’s all.
