Google+ Rants of a Supposed Nerd: The Pilot Post

Tuesday, January 1, 2013

The Pilot Post

This shall forever be known as my first blog post. Whether or not any one will read it is yet to be determined. I suppose I should start with the reason I named this blog Rants of a Supposed Nerd. You see, I like to think of myself as a nerd. Or a geek, if that is how you like to say it. But I don't have some of those more stereotypical interests that geeks/nerds have. I don't watch, nor do I really want to watch Star Trek. However, I do like Star Wars, so that gives me something. I would love to read more comic books, but I don't have access to such items. One reason being my location, and another, I wouldn't necessarily  say I have the money. Or the job to get money. Or the energy to actually maintain a job. But I like Spider -Man, and I want to read Deadpool, as I have heard so much about it. One thing that I think separates me from a large portion of nerds is that I understand/like/watch/have played football. American football. In fact, I was undefeated that one year that I played it. Of course, that really isn't much, considering I never caught a football in an actual game. I did in practice. Doesn't count much though. And I only made one tackle. But, I'm flowing away from the point, which is that I may or may not be a nerd. Some of you may say that these are just stereotypes, and you would be correct, but your just saying what I said earlier in the post. So shut up. I'm talking. Being a nerd doesn't just mean your interests in sci-fi and, fantasy, and comic books. You should also enjoy a few subjects like science and math. Well, I wouldn't say I'm half bad a science or math. I'm in accelerated math, or "smart math", as my peers call it. But I understand that there are different types of nerds, sci-fi nerds, fantasy nerds, comic book nerds, science nerds, math nerds, and what I think I'm closest to, writing (Literature) nerds. I write. You can find my writings on Booksie. I have a link to my page on the right side of this blog. Well, I think I've covered enough about why I'm not sure I'm a nerd or not. Now I'd like to tell why I waited for today, January 1st, to start my blog officially, and not the days previous, when I had it ready. I guess it's easy to determine why, though. I want to start this on the new year so I can comment on 2013 things and not 2012 things for just a few days. So, as the title implies, I will indeed be ranting. I will try to do this on a weekly basis, or more if something happens that I would like to mention. Nerdy things, opinions, possible facts, and maybe trivia will be mentioned. Not so sure about the trivia part though. Well, that's about the end of this post, so I will just end with a picture that I found that utterly speaks me. Farewell, and I hope that this blog becomes at least moderately popular.


  1. Yay! I'm your first comment! I loved reading this blog entry! So I will definitely be coming back for more!

    You are completely right about the geek/nerd things. There are so many different categories that everyone in the world is a geek/nerd in their own ways. I am simply a reading and writing (literature) nerd, ha-ha.

    Throughout, I really thought this was a funny read. You can really tell your personality through what you write here, which in the end, made me enjoy it the most!

    I love the idea that you started your blog with a new year, a fresh start. I'm eager to see the other things you post on your blogs (the opinions, the facts, and the trivia) it will be pretty fun to comment on those as well.

    Keep me updated on the other blogs please!

    P.S. Apparently I have been apart of this blogging website since February 2012 with which I had no idea, haha. Funny what we learn and remember sometimes....

  2. I'm comment 2!
    Well, let's just say that I agree with you. Though according to my sister I am a geek by choice and truly am a nerdy genius... I don't really get her. XD well, anyway, I do know that I'm addicted to blogging, anime, chatting and online games. Do you have COD or Tekken? XD let's verse each other in COD! Maybe. I mostly play zombies.. anyway, I'm babbling. Let's just say that I'll stay tuned at your blog.

    1. I'd love to read your blog! and I do indeed have COD but it's black ops 2 and it is on the xbox 360. so if you have those two things, i would love to play!

  3. This was very enjoyable to read, thanks for inviting me. I believe nerds come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, like the heffelumps in Winnie The Pooh :) I myself am rather a nerd. I play computer games (tomb raider, occasionally sims) and I like to watch anime and read manga, but I suck at maths and physics and those type of subjects.

    I will definitely read more of your blog whenever I can, I really enjoyed it. Please inform me on Booksie, because I will check it more often. Thank you.

    1. thanks! i will probably update people on booksie until i get to the 4th or 5th post, then i'll want people to stop relying on me. i would play computer games, but i am not allowed to download games. tis a shame i know. i used watch naruto, but i haven't lately, because it's not on any channels. i know what you're saying, watch them online, but i can't. it is another thing i'm not allowed to do. but thanks for reading the post!
