So I’m also a large nerd

I love blogging.

I love blogging for a lot of reasons. It gives me a reason to write. It is an outlet for my creativity. It’s a place to bitch so that my friends aren’t so burdened by my incessant bitching. I get good advice. I make friends. I get to see how other people think, live, write, feel.

And I learn that I’m not quite as weird as I’ve always assumed that I am.

For every one of my quirks – for every ridiculous thing that I love or feel or wish – there is another blogger who loves or feels or wishes the same.

It is unquestionably comforting.

Today my comfort came from Jenna Bans on Grey Matter, the Grey’s Anatomy writer’s blog.

"So I’m a large nerd. I like my parents. A lot. I like to hang out with them, I talk to them almost every day on the phone. I was the person in high school who was like, nah, I don’t think I’m going to that party, I’ll probably just chill with the ole’ parental unit. We’ll order a pizza, play a few board games – it’s gonna be a blast if you want to stop by…yep, I was that girl. (I know you’re wondering and yes, shockingly, I still had a few friends my own age.) Even now, I get a three day weekend and I’m usually off to Minneapolis to hang with the parents. Now I recognize that that’s super weird and slightly creepy to most people, including my husband. He’s all, ew nerd, stop being so obsessed with your parents. But I am. I just like ‘em. They’re good peeps. And they gave me a very happy and stable childhood – which I took for granted until I moved to Los Angeles and started working in television – because amongst creative types, I’m figuring out the normal upbringing is quite the rarity."

Maybe I’m still a freak.

But I’m not the only freak in the world. And that is always good to know.

You put this PERFECTLY!! I'm not so much with you on the parents thing (althought if my dad and step-mom lived in the same country, I might be...), but the whole blog thing - abso-fuckin-lutely!

oh my gosh, I am the SAME way! I am a huge nerd and always have been. I tried to hide it a little bit in high school, but now I fully let it flourish :)
