Thoughts About Individuality

      When you were a kid did you ever pretend not to like something so you wouldn’t be made fun of? Yeah, me too. I still try to act cool when talking about something that brings out my nerdy side. But I’ve come to realize that WE ALL HAVE A NERDY SIDE! There is not a single person on this planet that doesn’t geek out over SOMETHING. Whether it be My Little Pony, Halo, or Twilight. Everyone has something they’re ashamed to admit they like.
      The thing is, we’re all peculiar. And that’s not a bad thing. We shouldn’t feel poorly about saying we have a map of Middle Earth in our bedroom or that we have seen every episode of Merlin on Netflix, twice.
      Now, although I don’t have a map of Middle Earth . . . I would love one! And I haven’t seen every episode of Merlin but I do enjoy watching the show. I play Halo and I’ve seen Twilight (and am currently reading the books). I have over 60 books and 15 comics on my shelves. I’ve seen the Lord Of The Rings so many times, in fact I just watched those movies last week. And I’ve read more e-books than I could ever count. So what? I like being different.
      Some of you might have the opposite problem; you are embarrassed that you haven’t seen a certain movie or read a particular book. You know what? Don’t be. Whether life gets in the way or the subject matter doesn’t interest you, you don’t have to get your hands on every “nerdy” thing that comes out.
      Ultimately, being a “nerd” or “geek” doesn’t mean a single thing. You are YOU. I am ME. We are ALL UNIQUE. You don’t have to have a title to be special. You are a God created individual who just needs to be yourself.
