I know that now it's cool to be a nerd and I think that's awesome. Unfortunately, I'm not nerdy--at least in the "cool" sense anyway. I don't watch Doctor Who or Sherlock. Disney movies, while really cool, are not my faves. I've never seen Star Wars or Star Trek. I suck at math and sometimes I make really stupid spelling errors. And, to really annoy nearly every other blogger out there, I'm not a huge reader/book fan. Gasp! I know.
But there are things that I am really nerdy about. Law. I love law. Even when I complain about my job. Learning law is fascinating to me. Patrick made fun of my excitement yesterday when I had to call Courts out in California to find out about their subpoena process.
Photography. Hence the shirt. I love photography. I know it may seem like I only take photos of myself if you only "know" me via this blog, but this is quite the contrary. I take photos, mostly of my kids and nieces and nephews, ALLLLLL the time. In fact, if you follow me on Instagram, you might get a hint of that too.
Cooking. I'm not good at creating meals or recipes per se, but I can follow a recipe and adjust as necessary and make a really good dish. I really love making something that makes people happy. And who doesn't get excited about food?
Clothes. Obvi. But not only am I fascinated by fashion, love the shop and think that the actual psychology behind style is amazing, but I . . . am a . . . hoarder of clothes. I know, I know. Every blogger says that. But I am. Case in point? These Birks are original. As in my for real original Birks from high school. I know--whoa.
I'm also big on cherishing memories. This little tunnel I'm in is actually a walkway to Westview Middle School--my middle school from back in the day. The tunnel is a way for kids to cross the busy street and get to school without actually crossing the street. I figured I'd try to incorporate a school into my photos in some way. But school's back in now. And I don't want to look a fool interrupting classes by posing out in front of a school for blog photos. After all, nerds are sneaky and introverted typically, no? Maybe I'm more nerd than I thought.
