This is going to be a little bit of an off topic post because it won’t about an anime or anything but for all of you to get to know me a little better! So sit back, relax and let’s get started!
I’ve been telling people for years that I am no ordinary nerd, that I consider myself an off-brand nerd and then I usually get a confused or quizzical look and then I have to explain what I mean when I say I ‘m an off-brand nerd. So, that’s what I’m going to do today! I’m going to explain why I am an off-brand nerd.
Let’s start with the nerd side of me. Well, the nerdy side comes from my love of anime and manga (as you all already know), I love video games; console and PC, I love playing D&D (I have 2 pairs of D&D dice right next to me as I am typing this), I enjoy magic tricks, I love watching tricks, learning to perform new tricks, breaking down tricks and the amazement I get from watching and seeing tricks for the first time and the amazement and confusion in peoples faces when I perform tricks as well (ask Kristina about our first date XD), I’m in college studying to be a computer program and video game developer, and I can also solve several different sized and shaped Rubik’s Cubes, I have solved a regular 3×3 Rubik’s Cube in 27 seconds. This is the nerdy side but there is another side to me.
This is where the off-brand part comes into play. I live in the gym, I workout 5 days a week with my best/favorite lift is the deadlift where I max out at 315lbs, I love tattoos, I have 3 currently and have 8+ more currently planned, which includes several nerdy tattoos, I am the occasional marijuana smoker, I like to go out with friends and drink and party, I love traveling, with my goal in life to see the whole world, I listen to a lot of rap music, with my favorite artists being Logic, Tech n9ne, Futuristic, Joyner Lucas (I hate today’s mumble rapping), and I love just going out in general.
So that’s why I consider myself an off-brand nerd. I love anime and D&D and I like to pick heavy things up just to move them a little than put them down. You could say im unique.
Today’s question is, what makes you unique? Take that as you will.
Thank you for reading my post, and as always, have a great day!
