The Nerdvana

image credits
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.

  1. I think there's a little bit of jealously in the people who judge you for being smart. :) There's nothing wrong with actually wanting to learn. After all, knowledge is power.

    By the way, that's a lot of calculators haha! I think I have the one on the very bottom. :D

  3. I so agree with what you've just said here, I'm not as smart like you but I even don't need much of studying to score a Distinction, I mean I just read several pages just before exam day and I get HD and D's. But I know I can be an all HD student if I gave an effort to it, which I can't. Unlike you. But I so wish I was like you and actually liked to study seriously. You're so blessed with this! :)
    And I love to read too, but documentaries not so much!

  5. Haiko: may be. >.< yes, I keep reminding myself that.

    haha, that's just half of our calculators mixed..

    Mode: Thankyou, and welcome to my blog.

    Iecco: yeah. I think I know how that feels. Thanks.
    There are a few documentaries that I would rather die than watch, but in general I like them. =D

  6. im like iecco, somewhat. i dont enjoy studying. its more like a chore for me. so i dont really study but yet i get good marks easily. so i know that if i ACTUALLY try i can kick everyone's ass. i wish i loved studying as much as u do, then it'd be so easy hehehe!

    as iecco, said ure definitely blessed to feel this way about studies and knowledge :)

    also i agree with what haiko said... i think people who judge you for liking studies are definitely jealous of you.

    and about documentaries and reading... i think i like watching documentaries more than reading :\ i used to love reading as a kid but not so much anymore.

    oh and 3 idiots is one of my favorite movies too! really good message behind it.
