… yesterday I had a chat with my sister about feeling during school beeing a “freak” and that we both wish that we had known the word nerd in Germany during the 90’s. Yeah the nerd thing is not just me in my family.
And like always when you talk about things, just something happens that reminds you that you was right.
Today at work our radio was on. Nothing unusual. They played Teardrop from Massive Attack this afternoon. I love that song. And like always when a song is on the radio I like (not to often, because the most stuff I hear will not be aired on radio), I let my colleagues know. They do the same, but it’s more often, I’m well known as that person who reads, hears and watches stuff that no one knows.
Me: Love that song. They used it for the first Assassins Creed trailer.
My Colleague (after thinking for a while): That was … a game, right???
In so moments I feel just like back in school, the nerd kid, who never heard the word nerd before. Just want to survive school.
But don’t misunderstand me, I was an outcast at school, but at work I have great relations with my colleagues. They just accept me the way I am. And I do the same with them. But moments like today are like gotten a ticket in the blue phone box back to the 90’s.
