Is it just me or does everyone notice this. The overuse of the word “Geek” just to sound cool. ( Well I haven’t seen a similar usuage of Nerd yet).
Merriam-Websters defines Geek as below
Is a real Geek in terms of above definition likely to call oneself geek ? I think its the people around who would refer to someone as a geek (esp. for people who aren’t socially outgoing or too inclined to a field or activity). Now as I understand chilling out, Hanging out, grabbing beer or food regularly won’t qualify as a valid activity.
Well all said and done, perhaps thats how it is gonna be ? Showy and Shallow.
I really hope that people still respect knowledge, strive to learn and improve everyday and be humble.
A real expert would’nt call themselves an expert becuase the mere fact that are experts, lets them see and know deeper the vastness of any field. Its that deep understanding which is required to understand the vastness, the beauty and to understand “there is so much more” !!
Geek or Nerd ain’t cool, its the quest of a man to learn as much, understand as much and improve as much everyday is what is cool !
