Geek Pride Day

Today is a big day. With trending hashtags supporting Red Nose Day, the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars, and National Wine Day, it seems one has been *slightly* overlooked…. Geek Pride Day.

Although the terms “nerd” and “geek” are often used interchangeably, there is, in fact, a difference. According to Urban Dictionary:

Nerds are smart, people who lack much of a social life. They often have very few friends. Nerds don’t talk much, and don’t expect others to talk much to them. They are usually nice people, but don’t have the social skills to go out and meet new friends. Geeks are different from nerds in the fact that they have social lives. However, these social lives are often spent pursuing some passion that the geek is obsessed with (i.e. Yu-Gi-Oh!). They spend all their time thinking about their one obsession, and play it in all of their free time. Geeks are usually only friends with other geeks, and attempts to converse with geeks is futile, unless, of course, you want to talk about Star Trek or whatever the certain geek is obsessed with.”

So today, I celebrate my geek pride by showing off some of my recent geeky moments (in no particular order).
