i was queen of the nerds in high school: i played in the marching band since i'm 12. i wore glasses. i was (and still am, really) Black back when it wasnt cool to be Black. i sang in the chorus. i was president of the chorus. i took advanced courses all thru school. i sucked at athletics. i walked, ok ran, into the wall in gym class while trying to play Bball. I was the female Urkel.
i taught archery. i was a girl scout. all the things that screamed DORK spelled my name as a kid.
but then guess what? i grew up and it didnt matter. then it became cool to be a geek. geek chic, they called it. heck i'd been geek chic all my life!
i am queen of the nerds. nerd queen. whatever. you gotta be proud of what you are, right?
i'm running with the big dogs.
