I'm a Modern, Cool Nerd

I often refer to myself as a geek or a dork. I even named this place "Dork Check". But really, I'ma Modern Cool Nerd. What does that even mean??
You know I always thought I was more of a DORK than I was a Nerd or a Geek. But it seems I've been a NERD all along. In high school, I came up with a saying, that I was a NAWAMO, which defined is "Not Affiliated With Any Major Organization." I always felt I was not quite a nerd, not quite a dork, not quite a geek, not a dweeb, not a jock, not a prep, not a guido. I was a NAWAMO.
You know, that caught on about as well as Joanie called Potsie a DREN, when she had a crush on old Warren.

|For The Record:|
A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.
You scored better than half in Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.
Nerds didn't use to be cool, but in the 90's that all changed. It used to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a pocket protector or suspenders or something that announced to the world that you couldn't quite fit in. Not anymore. Now, the intelligent and geeky have eked out for themselves a modicum of respect at the very least, and "geek is chic." The Modern, Cool Nerd is intelligent, knowledgable and always the person to call in a crisis (needing computer advice/an arcane bit of trivia knowledge). They are the one you want as your lifeline in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (or the one up there, winning the million bucks)!
