It was Emily who first clued me in to the existence of the nerd hut.
The nerd hut, she told me, is that part of you that’s interested in or gets really excited about something that no one else seems to care about.
You’re the only one of your friends that’s in to bad sci-fi? You’re in the nerd hut. Geeking out over your must-see tv? Your nerd-hut has cable. A little obsessed with knitting/food/wine/cars/clothes/etc? Guess what? Nerd hut.
Thing is, you don’t have to be a nerd to have a nerd hut. And the nerd hut itself – not a bad thing. It’s just that place we can go to be one with our geekitude. To accept, enjoy, and roll around in that which makes us unique.
Simply put, the nerd hut is awesome.
But always remember this:
You don’t go to the nerd hut; the nerd hut comes to you.
