I only have a first part of the essay, but am really unsure if I should go on:
*is dork a swear word?? dweeb??? I'm using it purely for the purpose of the essay, since I've never actually heard of the word dweeb.
-celebrate your nerdy side-
According to wikiHow, a "nerd", a "geek", and a "dork" are subtly different. A "nerd" is passionate about a particular academic pursuit; a "geek" is particularly interested in a subject that is not necessarily academic; a "dork", however, is not interested in anything in particular. All three are socially inept.
The similarities and differences between these three terms can also be shown through an online venn diagram. Intelligence with obsession defines a "geek"; when the former is combined with social ineptitude, a "dweeb" is made; the third combination, obsession and social ineptitude, represents a "dork". The triangular shape in the middle that all three overlapped is labeled "nerd".
In the Merriam-Webster dictionary, "nerd", "dork", and "dweeb" share the same meaning as being an "unattractive, insignificant or inept person." Rather unexpectedly, "geek" is defined as an intellectual---mostly disliked, and usually in the field of technology.
I want to use this intro to portray that i am a nerd that actually seems like sherlock, socially inept, full of definitions, know-it-all.
But then I might transition into my own definition of "nerd" and what kind of a nerd I am, someone who likes to prove things herself rather than listen to advertisement, such websites, or even people of authority...someone who loves being with people to talk about all the nerdy stuff rather than thinking about it alone.
Would this be an acceptable essay?? Thank you!!!!!!!
