Well I have done this and I haven’t, that is I haven’t changed in the way I am but people’s perceptions of me have.
I thought I wanted to achieve this for myself but now I realise I wanted it for other people. I can’t even begin to express how wrong I now feel this is. I noticed that peoples attitude toward me (mainly at work) started to change after I learned how to do one handed push-ups. They then wanted to know more about me, once I’d told them I have a fiancé, I own a house and have done a bungee jump all the opinions changed and I wasn’t a geek anymore. Now I where contacts instead of glasses which has made me even less geeky (this makes no-sense to me).

I’m such a massive nerd but whats really wrong with being good at something and being proud of it? If the subject matter were different people would not think of me a geeky. For example if I were talented at medicine people would be impressed but computers and your a geek.
I’m gonna struggle with this goal I’ve only set it for myself because I think it will benefit my social status rather that something I really want to do. 8 years ago
Yeah, I was recently quite thoroughly grilled with critism for being too geeky. This needs to change. Hmmmm get away from the computer some and…. work out more often. Maybe walk instead of taking the bus when it’s not too far. Become more social…. YEAH, all that stuff. 9 years ago
