you don't understand women at all do you?
she probably wasn't laughing to be mean, she just wanted to start conversation and be friendly. I too, think nerd is obselete, but it's nothing to be affended by nonetheless. I'm not saying it's a compliment either. Just as people call me a freak because I'm a goth, they aren't putting me down, just telling me what I am. No big deal. You shouldn't get affended so easily. Although, I DO get made fun of because of my interest in computers and junk, but I don't let it get the best of me. I just laugh. A lot of times they aren't being mean, just playing around. Now there are the jocks that DO hate me, because I am the two types they usually hate. I'm a goth and a geek. They, I take offense from. But, I know that I am better than them, and it doesn't bother me. They are just jealous of my h4xx0r skills, and, if you look, ALL JOCKS ARE D.A.'s! They're just a bunch of people who cheat on tests and shower with other guys. They all want to be football players when they grow up, but they realise that it is harder than they think to get into the NFL. So they marry a *****, live in a trailer park, beat their wife and kids, and work at some place like co-op and get welfare checks.
