When I got up this morning I said, “It’s a brand new year. A brand new day.” Then the geek in me came out and I proceeded to sing “Brand New Day” from Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog. Oh yes, I am very proud to be a geek. It’s a wonderful thing to be proud of who you are. Don’t hold back. When I was in high school I had a very hard time fitting in. Heck, I had a hard time fitting in through most of my youth. The geeks didn’t want me. The goths didn’t want me. The preps didn’t want me. The punks didn’t want me. Thankfully, I had a couple of good friends who also didn’t quite fit in anywhere, and we sat together on the floor in the hall for lunch. We fit in together. That’s what’s important in life. Don’t worry about fitting into a bigger crowd. Find the people who you fit well with, and be together. Link arms, and stride through the world with your heads held high. My message for the new year is for you to love who you are. Don’t give up your true self to please others. Follow your heart. Follow your bliss. As for me, I’ll be geeking out hard core over here.
