You know you are a nerd when you have read books on physics such as Brief History of Time, Hunting the Quark, and Atom: A Journey Across the Subatomic Cosmos for fun.
...when you want to read more books like those in the near future also for fun.

when you check out 20 books from the library when the limits 2,
when you spend your lunch time reading
when you cry because you didn't get a bird field guide for christmas
when you get all excited about something and your excitement lessens because you have to explain everything you just ranted on about to your friends
when your friends don't get the puns you crack
when you sing the quadratic song during band
when you are actually REALLY REALLY REALLY STINKEN GOOD at an instrument
when you have to ID every bird you see
when you cry because you forgot what an american robin looked like
when you scream when you see any uncommon bird
when you go to florida JUST to go bird watching
when your ideal field trip is to a science museum

i could go on and on..this is all just describing me and theres a ton more...

Ha, I am slightly guilty of that too. We just had to debate the Big Bang Theory in science the other day, and I was very tempted to mention his name. Do you think he'll disprove the BB?

...after being away from the computer for a few weeks, you spend hours on Scioly and check facebook as an afterthought
...you go to a huge book sale and head straight for the genetics section
...at said book sale, you start dancing, singing, and shouting in the (crowded) aisle because you found a first edition Double Helix by James Watson and an ARC biography of Rosalind Franklin.
...you actually plan on reading the above books
...you are devastated because you can't be the purple nerds at Girl Scout camp because another team stole purple.
...you go as the Lavandula angustifolic nerds instead
...your team song for Girl Scouts is the theme from the Big Bang Theory, with choreography
...you plan meetings around Scioly practices
...you are more upset about your 99.95% on a test than the other 25 students are about failing it
...you are taking a senior-level genetics course as a sophomore because your study hall was boring
...your guidance counselor doesn't even ask if you know that the class you are adding has a prerequisite, because you laugh in the face of prerequisites
...you distract yourself while getting blood drawn by having in-depth conversations with your doctor about the endocrine system
I am the one called "TARDIS Hat Girl," and am known as such by all.

You know you're a nerd when you want to name your kid Luke so that the first thing you can say to him is: "Luke, I am your father."

During l.a., you write a 3/4 page paper on why 22=4.
100% of deaths are somehow caused by science.
Don't be a statistic.
Don't do science.
