I’m a total nerdy girl from way back. I was the only kid in class who got 100% on the exam, essay, or presentation. I got sent to the academic school. (I really enjoyed the hour bus ride there and back each day. Thanks Mom and Dad!) I was the one who went up and helped the teacher solve the word problem in Algebra when he couldn’t. Did I mention I also wore glasses that took up half of my face, was an ugly duckling, skinny as a rail, with low self-esteem, and to make matters worse I was painfully shy? Yep. Good times.
Things have changed. In grade twelve I got contact lenses, became more swan-like, got some curves, and because of drama I was more confident and outgoing. But I never lost my inner nerd. She saw this hipster fox sweater and said, “Yep, glasses are hot and so is being a nerd!” So now I too am a hipster fox – well sometimes, when I put on make-up, and dress nice, and do my hair, get enough sleep, in the right lighting… hmmmm… maybe some things never change!
