Humpday Confessions { Link Up #23 } { #Blogtober14 }

I'm not going to lie, I've got the Bloggers Block - BAD! There's so much swimming around in my head but to actually sit down and type it up had been a challenge. I hate that I've been neglecting this little piece of my life or the web but when the time is right I'll be sharing things with all of you, promise! 

Anyway today ofcourse I'm linking up with Kat and Ian for Humpday confessions of "what makes me a nerd"  although while I'm prepping this it seems as if Kat is still on vacation and not hosting the link up :( 

Vodka and Soda

* I'd rather stay in and read. While people say it's because I'm getting older I can assure you I was 11 years old and perfectly happy not playing outside if I got to read a new Sweet Valley High. 

* I refused to watch the Book Thief until I finished reading the book even though it meant I went alone on a Thursday in the day. I was totally ok with it.

* Stationery gets me excited! See my latest purchases of notebooks.

* I bought the aforementioned books at Typo and I can spend hours in that store.

* No one likes to go to book stores with me because it's not "fun" to browse books stores... 

* When I get really excited I do a happy dance! 

* I've been spending a lot of time with my cousin and my current happy dance is the running man. 

* I make lists of lists, it's ridic. I currently have about 5 or 6 different lists on one page just so I can keep control of my shizzzz 

* I just used the word shizzzz which I've never done before but if I did it wouldn't help my cool factor

* I know soccer/football quiet well, so much so that I end up talking most people under the table because they always look at me and think, she's just a girl... Except I'm a girl who likes to study and have knowledge so I have an informed opinion.

I'm sure there are many more reasons why I have "nerd" tendencies but the best part is that when you're in no longer in school all those type of labels don't mean a thing. 

Disclaimer: I don't actually believe in the the whole idea of nerds being silly and bullied, I just think the nerds of your school days are the best husbands (or wives) of the rest of your lives *hint hint, nudge nudge* Also, in school, I didn't fall into any particular category and I liked it that way

What's your nerdiest quality?

Also, linking up with Helene and Tay for #Blogtober14 about what are my pet peeves...

I've already shared a few but one more that I've picked up is when I find drinking glasses and there are fingerprints on them .... eeew!

We go book browsing together. My current bf and I used to go on dates to Barnes and Noble. I think we need to bring that back.

Kimmi said...

I was the same way when I was younger! I would rather read than do most anything else! And what is wrong with people that don't find bookstores fun?!

Kasey At The Bat said...

oh my god, there's nothing quite like the smell of a new book. now I want to go to the bookstore.. I also LOVE going to the movies by myself in the middle of the day.. is that weird? haha

A Very Sweet Blog said...

Nancy @ Sincerely and Sarcastically said...
