Just a nerd who works in the library

I just received my first 4.00 in College. Like a little kid on Christmas I anxiously awaited for our lovely IrisLink to load, I even held my breath while I feverishly clicked away. And there is was, all the work that has cumulated over the entire semester and really my entire career at wingate sat there. And for once, it was exactly what I wanted.

The next railway line my brain chugged down was what a nerd! I had gotten up at 8am and raced raced to a computer, almost killing myself on the stairs because I forgot to remove my socks...when did this happen? I suppose the better question is when have I not been like this. I was the girl who sat at the front of the room, mullet in tact, dying to answer every question.

So today when people ask, wait you run the writing center? Or the Librarians give me the twice over because I come in with with letters on, or my tight jeans I always giggle. If only these people knew the inner nerd who really lives in me! She's dying to get out, so I'll read a few books undercover, and secretly enjoy editing papers and writing my heart out. But shhh, don't tell. It's so much more fun to see the look on people's faces when they find out.

A Little About Me

I like to hide important things in the top drawer of my dresser along with the clothing items which are supposedly unmentionable. I'm drifting from the illusion of the local girl I once was, and yet the longer I'm about from Hawaii the more and more embellished my life there becomes. Whenever I find myself down I seem to head that direction and yet something will snap me out of it like the lovely smell of the Chicken Farm, or 3 days of straight rain.
Here in Wingate, North Carolina I stumble across the random differences that bring people to one place and I wonder what it would be like if I hadn't of met the people who have made me who I am today. When I was a senior in high school, 3 short years ago, I thought that I was becoming the best I could be. Little did I know it was going to take a series of break downs and through the build back ups, I've gotten to where I am today.
