Sometimes being a geek is awesome. You walk into a room, see a problem, fix it, and walk out. Meanwhile, everyone is cheering for you. Those times are great. Other times, it is a challenge.
People don't like talking geek all of the time. And I crave it! My favorite thing is to talk about all of my passions with people that share them. Granted, I can get passionate about a lot of things, but I just wanna "geek out" sometimes with someone. However, when I try to do this (even just a little) I am often greeted with blank stares and polite nods....
I once stated something, in church of all places, and the response I got from a handful of people was that I was wrong. The point I made was that being a geek isn't a bad thing anymore. What I meant to say is that what it means to be a geek is not the same as it used to be. Sure, in High School being a "geek" is still somewhat derogatory, but it's the geeks that are making it big in our world. Without us Geeks many of life's problems wouldn't get fixed.
There are a few definitions of Geek. One is a socially awkward person (sometimes mostly fashion inept). The most common definition these days is a knowledgeable and obsessive enthusiast.
I am proud to be a geek. I speak Geek.
