Embrace Your Inner Nerd! 8 Nerdy Facts About Me

TyA note from Joelle...

♫ ♪ 'Slacker' - Son Of Dork ♫ ♪

This was the first and last time wearing this tee by the way...
People are now so afraid of being seen as a 'nerd'/'loser'/'geek'/'neek' that they are either A) hiding their true passions from their friends, because they don't want to be judged/ridiculed. Or B) Quit their passions in order to fit in with everyone else. To that I say 'BOLLOCKS!' This life is way too short to pretend to hate the things you love! - no matter how 'geeky' it is!
I was really close to quitting playing the flute because some b*tches in year kept taking the piss. Little did I know, one of those girls had been a wee bit jealous (her words, not mine) and was taking private flute lessons at home! Ha - I did not see that one coming! 
Here's my list of nerdy facts about me! Enjoy!

1. I love classical music - Yep, that's right! I love Mozart, Handel, Purcell, Tchaikovsky, Ravel, Walton, Bach, Haydn, Chopin, Liszt, Debussy, Vivaldi, Dvorak, Mendelssohn,  Rimsky-Korsakov, Rossini, Saint-Saëns, Puccini, Grieg, Vaughan Williams, Strauss, those are just off the top of my head!

2. I collect precious/semi-precious stones - I have been doing this since the age to 7 and am not going to stop any time soon. I guess I like shiny things with a history. I have over 200.

3. I want to ride every line on the London Underground in one day (and film it for evidence) - Oh come on, this sounds awesome, right?

4. I sit and watch University Challenge... for fun - I learn loads from it! 

5. I am a HUGE fan of seeing plays and musicals at the theatre - It has always been a hobby of mine and I hope to carry this on when I'm old and grey. I also collect programmes from the shows!

6. I am a pro at removing viruses from computers - Does this count as a party trick?

7. I am teaching myself to play the marimba (It's like a big xylophone with resonators...) and it's harder than I thought!

8. I know the capital cities of about 150 countries - I plan to learn the rest!

I say to you... embrace your inner nerd and enjoy your life! As long as you are not boring (and the same as everyone else), you're all good!
I want to make this into a blogger TAG! Have you got any you would like to share with me? ;)
