Have you ever been a nerd? Maybe a little bit of an underdog? A little too school for cool?
I have. Big time. I was smart and bookish in the early years, and then I was smart and bookish and fat, and then I was smart, bookish, fat, and a punky band nerd. And then I was all that, but at fashion school. And then I was all that, and a gamer and obsessive knitter, and at a totally different stage of my life than the people I was at university with. I'm not exactly fan club material. But you know what? Screw 'em. I've found my niche and I'm happy here.
