I am in the United States now.
If you’re just tuning in, I am trying to immigrate to Norway from the US. My visa is stupid and now I have to be here away from my husband at my parents’ house along with my cat, Stoner. He’s a pretty, black cat. My parents were babysitting Stoner.
I applied to a job in Norway despite the fact that I’m all the way over here. It’s for a museum host. It took every ounce of me not to write to them saying:
I AM A MASSIVE NERD. JUST HIRE ME.
I LOVE THIS SHIT.
My brother in law explained what I am quite well. I am a nerd of a different kind. Not many people obsess over what I do. I’m not the typical video gaming or star wars nerd. I want to go to museums, travel, read, study, learn and explore. I am a social science nerd. (Social science = psychology, anthropology and sociology) I don’t mind being called a nerd because I worked hard for it.
So right now, and always, I am reading and studying. I never really stop. I am taking free online classes for Italian language and culture, and Diabetes. I got books for kindle. I just finished Ready Player One and LOVED IT. I don’t understand all the references but it didn’t matter. I had people pick the next book I read and The Hunger Games won. I’ll be reading that today. I know they are all books made into movies but whatever. The books are going to be better.
What are you nerdy for?
