Bill gates the owner of Microsoft said; "Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one." You see that's why we joined Geeks we're one of him geeks, nerds, smart stuff... I'm one of the biggest jerks in the world, I was a snobbish jock. I told to myself that I don't want to be a geek. But the risk of it I may not be successful I may just be in the streets begging a nerd to hire me.
I started to become a nerd in the age of 7, or may be earlier than that I started gaming in computers, played online games, learned html by 10 YO, you know stuff like that. You maybe asking you said you WERE a snobbish jock. That's the thing I joined the baseball varsity in my school and kept a secret in being a nerd. I just heard about that Bill gates quote this month, so I finally took away my pride in being a jock and considered myself a nerd.
At school today the baseball team didn't pick on me because I told them about Bill Gates quote, except all the other teams pick on me... But I'm ok with that at least there are nerds here :).
P.S. I'm writing this in the janitor's closet with my MacBook. The basketball team locked me here :( lol.
