I am a nerd. I love studying, and I just don’t do it for good grades. I sincerely like knowing stuff. I read a lot, I am a bookworm. I watch documentaries.
People sometimes find it hard to believe that someone can actually love studying. People only care about passing, and well, I don’t care about a pass (insha allah, I’ve been blessed with a good mind), but my parents do. For them, a pass is equivalent to the highest marks possible, which in my college is an HD. So, I do exams aiming for that, not just because my parents want me to, but because I want it. I want to go to a prestigious college and get a master’s or maybe a PhD. College life is a once in life time experience and I want mine to be extraordinary.
Some people however find it very bizarre, and even associate me with foni and stuff, because I hardly study and yet, I get good marks. That I always finish my works first and I answer questions in class (mostly when NO ONE ELSE answers). Anyhow, My point here is that I think people tend to judge me real quick. I actually fit into so many stereotypes, people get confused. I don’t blame them. I mean I know MOST people my age, in my college, or teens in general HATE studying, but what is wrong if I like it?
I actually like SMART people. I like people who are interesting. I like people who read. I also think guys who read are sexy. But there’s a limit to it. There are other people too, so give them a chance to be smart too.
