It’s been almost 3 weeks since my new classes started and I’m in a class of people who I just Hi to during last semester since the people I hung out with are in other tracks. We also have many exchange students from all over the world. In one of my courses, I’m in a group with three guys; one from Brazil, Norway and America. They are super nice except the American guy who behaves like a douche and thinks he is better than everyone in an arrogant kind of way. I have met really nice Americans in my days but he is one of the rudest I’ve met and he always say stupid things.
For those who don’t know, the University were I study is the highest rank in Sweden and I think 88th world-wide, so of course it’s intensive and people work hard in order to pass. Last semester all the people I hung out with read the articles before classes and seminars. I was sitting with my group the other day and suddenly the American says: Haha I bet Nad have read all the articles, she is such a nerd!
Ehm since when is “nerd” a bad thing? Yes people called me that in school too just because I got good grades and kids liked to tease me but today I take it with pride! Yes I’m a “nerdy” girl in that sence that I’m myself and don’t need others approval, yes I study hard, yes I have learned to like Star Wars and the world of sci-fi, I like computers, technology and to laugh at silly things but I’m also girly, goofy and social! Let me be me! Today I heard the same thing again and I mean people like that are just ignorant and I try to avoid them. I don’t need negative people around me that behave like an asshole. Funny thing is that the American wanted me to take notes for him since he is abroad and he was like make sure to write it super duper awesome like I normally do. In my head I was like: this nerd only help nice people haha. I didn’t take notes for him, he can just download the PowerPoint himself!
Have you ever experienced similar things?
