I get good grades but I'm not a nerd..... I think in England "nerd" means a different thing than in USA. Here, it means someone who is unpopular, spends their free time studying and they often talk differently than others etc.
Most of Cali is sunny and never rains. I think you'd miss England if you came here.

Yup, nerd means the same thing both here and there. I just call myself that for fun. I would never actually call someone a nerd to poke fun at them or offend them.

I was 14 when I started high school here.

Oh, you have that too? My brothers had to do that because they were both born in December. I don't see how a few months makes a different, but I could be wrong.

Please note I'm trying NOT to offend people.

I don't understand....People on here keep calling themselves "nerds"-twissfish, you are the only one that says it like a joke, which I understand. In my school, people call others "nerds" to offend them; not like it's a social group. It may be because in USA you guys have different groups at school, e.g jocks, or is that just the movies? Where I live, calling yourself a "nerd" is like calling yourself an "idiot".

My little brother was also born in December. Ironically he was allowed to apply early.

Catfish Billy- I like your signature, haha. I guess here we use terms more loosely. I know some people that use derogatory terms to others and about themselves like nothing. It's really quite annoying. I've never heard people call themselves jocks, but I've heard the occasional "he's like a jock." And you definitely will find girls that sound like valley girls (and they're usually stuck up and snotty.)

dbooknook- That's cool. Do you know why? Everyone I know born in December had to wait.

He went to a daycare center for kindergarten, so it was allowed to be applied early.

Catfish Billy- Yeah, I can see how it would be odd.

dbooknook- oh, I see. I was born in June so I didn't have to deal with that. I am younger than a lot of my classmates though because their birthdays are always earlier than mine. haha It also doesn't help me that I look younger than 17.

Anyway, I'm watching Spain vs Italy football/soccer game. :(

I do too! My dad was a ref so we grew up with football/soccer. I love it. :) Who are you rooting for? I'm going for Italy, but my dad is going for Spain (and he's making fun of me :( haha)
