Nerd: I accept it because of the immense degrees of freedom it provides me

Forgiveness or at least _tolerance_ is a very important social tool. It allots you degrees of freedom that you might not otherwise have.

It’s a tricky thing when overused the wrong way though, as people can often see through it.. .especially if it’s the kind of transgression people _trained_ to see abuse of forgiveness/tolerance… like authorities and such.

Think about the labels we allow to be applied to ourselves.

I accept the label of “Nerd”. I’m not guilty for it, nor am I sorry. I accept it because of the immense degrees of freedom it provides me; to be an “absent-minded professor”, to have obsessive hobbies… to be late to things… to overexplain something.
