I've always thought of myself as sort of nerdy, but that's only because I hadn't really been around any real nerds. In addition to that, I knew more about me than anyone that would be judging that would know

Like, going to a school where the most kids I ever had in my class was like 12 at a time for the first 9 years of my life and then now being at one where there are like 48 or so, I notice that if I don't say anything, people would think I was the anti-nerd. The way I dress, the music I listen to, the sports they assume I play, the sports I would play if my f***ing leg healed, etc. Only time people can tell is when I tell them how much I'm on the computer.

I'm not a closet nerd. I'll tell people what I do and I'm not really ashamed. But maybe that's because I've sen real nerds who don't do anything with anyone but their computer or videogames, wear the same clothes every day for a year, snitch, and generally act like lames. I guess I don't really have a social class but I'd probably be right in the middle of the Prep <--> Nerd continuum, meaning I could go either way pretty seamlessly. (This is in other people's opinions, mind you)

What about you guys? Being an anime forum, people kind get a bad stereotype from coming to places like this. I've admittedly watched less and less and read less and less over the last few years, but I still enjoy it when I get a chance.

Simple: outcast. I'm not going to go into a whole monologue about it, especially since that was in a small high school. That view's changed, but I've kinda got better things to think about, such as passing a class or trying to do something productive on the weekend. Sure, it would be important to know whether or not people hate or fear you, but wondering how people "view" you semms like a waste of time in my book.

You'd think so, but when you're trying to get a job, get tickets for a concert, make friends, etc, having friends helps a lot. I think there are certain people that may rub you the wrong way or w/e, and they should be avoided. But I also think that there are going to be people in between that you're not super best friends with and that you don't absolutely hate. I think those are good people to have a scratch my back I scratch yours relationship with.

Rank 49 of 167 in my class. >.>

I can't even live up to that rank.

Anyway...

You probably wouldn't want to know me in real life. I either look like I am on something, or am almost always extremely hyper. Like I have some kind of spontaneous energy coming to me all day long.

The kind of person the preppy girls next door feel sorry for, the guy able to make an entire class laugh and enjoy an Earth/Space Science Presentation ( that day was epic, I might add. lol ), the kind of person my friends would say was cool if you could get me to calm down, someone who can and will try to get along with everyone...though not necessarily wanting to. There are some people I want to throw through a wall.

Sarcasm at the level of saying:

If a girl complains about being fat, grab them by the ankles, spin around for momentum and throw them into a wall. If they collapse into a few pieces, they are not fat, but if they break a hole in the wall, they are. Make it a very soft wall for some lulz.

That doesn't even begin to sum me up.

XD, Nice.

I'd put a "me" quote up, but it's probably against TOS.

I'm the odd one, and proud of it. I've taken to saying "Good morning" as a greeting at all hours of the day and night. You've been warned.

To all my friends and stuff I'm the funny and well liked kid. But to people I don't know I'm mad quiet. Like generally when I've had to move to new schools or get to know new groups of people and stuff like that I don't say much, but after a while the funny dude comes out to play and I'm like the life of the party. Except I don't drink XD.

What're your views on drinking and stuff like that anyway? I absolutely don't drink or smoke or anything like that, even though a lot of my friends do. What about the rest of y'all?

I'm a big non-smoker/non-drinker. It was a bit of a change to move from a place that had a strict zero-tolerance policy to a HS that apparentely has a "first offense" policy-hence the big All-school play fiasco. Long story short, I was wrongly accused as a "snitch" to those that decided to bring beer backstage (I actually didn't know about it until afterwards), further showing mutual dislike for each other, and I was so glad to get that diploma outta there.

Anyway, I don't drink/smoke, and if ur above legal age, it's ur choice imo.

I don't drink or smoke, but probably not for the same reasons as you guys.

I don't drink because I don't ever get an opportunity not to get caught drinking. If I'm not going to hurt anybody or myself, I'll do it.

I smoke hookah, but not cigarettes. Cigarettes are nasty as hell and they kill you. I've had a puff of one and it didn't feel good. Hookah kills you too, but I don't do it often enough to make a difference.

I've never smoked marijuana, but I've used it in other ways. I don't smoke weed now because I know I have snitch ass mofuxas that will rat me out. I also don't like the idea of "smoking" it out of a joint. I'd use a bong, but I really don't like smoking stuff w/ cigarette-like apparatuses. I'll probably be using herb regularly in college, but not enough to distract me from goals.

I have a pretty relaxed attitude toward non-major drugs, but there are always people who take things too far. I guess you kinda just have to know your limits and be responsible.

...I'm 17, btw.

LOL we're the same age then. For some reason it always seemed like we were the same age lmao, I don't know why.

So, how about sports? My favorite sport is basketball. I used to play Baseball for my old school, and I play football for fun. Along with tennis, which I'm gonna play for my school. And I like volleyball too lol. Do the rest of you guys like to play sports?

I messed up my leg playing basketball in addition to other things. Long story short, I can't really do any sports related activities until next summer. Well, nothing that involves like... running or damaging my knee of any sort.

I love soccer, though. I can still physically play and whatever, but I regret it a couple hours afterwards cuz my leg (basically my knee) gets really puffy and swollen and whatnot.

Anyways, Soccer and volleyball are my sports.

Let's see for me...

I'm a senior in high school, I go to the same one as FR and Mike (Kintaro).

I play tennis like FR, but I also take Shaolin Kung Fu.

I like to read a lot, especially on Gandhi and Chinese history. My favorite author is Michael Crichton, and I've read about 6 of his books.

I'm about to take a motorcycle riding course and get my class M license and a Kawasaki motorcycle before November ends.

I tend to screw up friendships, either by being annoying or insulting.

I love anime and manga. My favorite being Full Metal Alchemist.

My first choice college is Johns Hopkins and I'll hopefully major in neuroscience and enter a premed program.

Oh and I don't smoke nor drink...

All right, all right. If you guys really want the details, I've been at University of Nebraska-Lincoln (aka the Huskers) for the past week, where I'm majoring in Broadcasting, possibly minoring in International Relations.

The main reason I was an "outcast" at the small high school was becuase I wasn't into sports (just keeping score for them), I'm more of a rocker than a country/rap person, I skipped a grade but was forced to stay with my class (I graduated w/21 college credits), and I get hyper after drinking soda/energy drinks. Oh, and because nobody liked the Japanese anime/manga that I brought with me from my old High School.

Ah well, none of them are here, and I've had a lot more fun getting into Judo, the Hall government, Anime Club, and hopefully the College Radio Station.

I will admit, I can be kinda sarcastic, but more of the kind to write stuff on the whiteboards on the dorm floors, hopefully people get a laugh when they read them.

I don't like to talk about myself much because it makes me feel like I'm boasting, but I'll give it a shot.

honestly, im not on the computer that much. Really, the only times im on the computer is during the summer, weeknights(maybe 7-9), and sundays. I go to the same school as DS, and its as cool as school can be. So, i guess I'm really not a nerd or anything.

I hang out with friends A LOT. I drink a lot, I do weed occasionally, but not all that much(mostly cuz i don't have connections anymore cuz last year's senior class left). I drink a good deal on weekends and I also smoke hookah with DS occasionally.

I also play tennis, basketball, and a shitload of video games. I completely and utterly pwn at Guitar Hero and love rhythm games.

I also play a shitload of Halo 2 on Xbox Live. I don't have an xbox though, but i play almost everyday at my friend's house.

So in short, I am super friend-oriented and would much rather hang out with people, than IM them. My parents get super pissed cuz im out all the time, but their indian(and so am i) so i guess their half-forgiven.

Well, that's me. I'm 17 too btw.
