    A How-to Guide for Nerds

    A How-to Guide for Nerds: Climbing the Social Ladder

    Remember last year? Remember sitting in the hallway talking to no one? Remember that feeling of rejection running through your spine? Well, do you also remember how you resolved to reinvent yourself in the ’09-’10 school year? Before you fall back into the same rhythm of loneliness, alienation, and isolation, keep in mind the promise you made to yourself. And hey, if you can easily formulate complex blueprints to the human transcriptome, ruling the social hierarchy of Arcadia High School should be as simple as  (pi symbol).

    Goths- Speech Class
    This fear of speaking in public prevents from realizing that they actually enjoy it. Likewise, the fear of talking to Goths prevents nerds from realizing that they actually share many common interests. Their individual isolations from popular social groups act as a unifying factor, allowing them to bask in the sorrow of social rejection together. Secondly, their interests in Twilight and Anime will undoubtedly overcome any social restrictions that once prevented them from interacting. So the next time a Goth offers you a piercing, offer them someone to read Naruto with.

    Bullies-AP Physics
    Without question, you are the underdog in your AP Physics class, but fret not; you can easily outsmart your intimidating classmates with a few simple calculations and your handy dandy Casio fx-115 ES scientific calculator. Treat wedgie pullers with the same approach, by outsmarting them with your intellect. Instead of providing them a head to flush in the toilet, give them your mind. If homework help does not sway them, remind them that you’re associated with the Goths and their toughness has rubbed off on you. This new ferocity of yours will make bullies actually THINK (twice!) before feeding you a knuckle sandwich.

    Jocks-Art Class
    A course in which academic skill cannot compete with imaginative expression is definitely one to be apprehensive about. Picasso, Monet, and van Gogh brush genius on a canvas while you and your scientific calculator finger-paint. Of course, you admire that which you cannot achieve, but don’t underestimate yourself. Many great artists rose from obscurity and you can join the ranks by taking the knowledge you have gained in AP Physics and utilizing it to create game plans for the coach. In turn, this will earn the respect of jocks when they score the winning touchdown. You can be the Phil Jackson of the Arcadia Apaches.

    Cheerleaders-Dance Class
    At the mention of the word “dance”, a typical high school student would picture a room full of energetic teens fueled by blacklights and the sound of Lady Gaga’s “Just Dance” playing in the background; nerds, on the other hand, envision themselves at home on a Friday night attempting to master the Super Maniac level of DDR. Nerds are intimidated by the beauty of dance, just as they are by the beauty of cheerleaders, and therefore distance themselves from the two. Put in perspective, dance is simply a bunch of equations such as (there are pictures here that don't show up on the forum) + (pic) = electric slide. In reality, cheerleaders don’t put themselves as high on a pedestal as you do. Matter of fact, cheerleaders are constantly belittling themselves based on their calorie intake. After a pep rally, present your prospective sweetie with a gift basket full of Cal Zone bars and a romantic note. This will surely show her that nerds are coming back in style.

    Teacher’s Pet – TA
    Now that you’ve conquered the Goths, bullies, jocks, and cheerleaders, your next step is to replace those kiss-ups who rely on their deviously pleasant ways to make the grade. Instead of laughing along with the class at their adorably stupid remarks, make corrections to what they say. Soon enough, their true ignorance will be exposed. This transition from a shy nerd to the teacher’s favorite is one small step for you, but one giant leap for nerdkind.

    Armed with this new information and confidence to match, you are ready to take the high school world by storm. Don’t be let down if you’re not an overnight superstar. After all, they didn’t build Rome in one day!

    A How-to Guide for Nerds: Climbing the Social Ladder

    Every year, Arcadia High earns a profitable amount of money selling yearbooks to nerds, but an obvious question comes to mind: why do nerds even buy yearbooks? It seems as though they serve no other purpose than to sit on a nerd’s bookshelf collecting dust, and when finally opened, to embarrass nerds by the pages of their past. While the colorful and glossy pages honor the sport teams and performing arts groups, the academic teams consisting of nerds are neglected in black and white. As you flip through the yearbook, are you one to feel neglected? Do you remember sitting in the hallways all alone at lunch last year? Did you constantly break into sweat because the feeling of rejection was too much for you to handle? Well, do you also remember how you resolved to reinvent yourself during the 09-10 school year? Before you fall back into the same rhythm of loneliness, alienation, and isolation, keep in mind the promise you made to yourself. And hey, if you can easily formulate complex blueprints to the human transcriptome, ruling the social hierarchy of Arcadia High School should be as easy as  (pi symbol).

    Even for a nerd, this may seem a tad confusing so this guide is arranged in terms that you can understand. Approach every clique as you would an academic course! Here's how:

As you flip through the yearbook, do you remember sitting in the hallways all alone at lunch last year,breaking into a sweat because the feeling of rejection was too much for you to handle? Well, do you also remember how you resolved to reinvent yourself for the next school year? Before you fall back into the same rhythm of loneliness and alienation, keep in mind the promise you made to yourself. And hey, if you can easily formulate blueprints to the human transcriptome, ruling the social hierarchy of AHS should be as easy as .That’s why this guide is designed in terms that you can understand. Here’s how:
    Goths- Speech Class
    The fear of speaking in public prevents nerds from realizing that they might actually enjoy it if they loosen up. Likewise, the fear of talking to Goths prevents nerds from realizing that they actually share many common interests. Their individual isolations from popular social groups act as a unifying factor, allowing them to bask in the sorrow of social rejection together. Additionally, their interests in Twilight and Anime will undoubtedly overcome any social restrictions that once prevented them from interacting. So the next time a Goth offers you a piercing, offer them someone to read Naruto with.
    Bullies-AP Physics
    Without question, you are the underdog in your AP Physics class, but fret not; you can easily outsmart your intimidating classmates with a few simple calculations and your handy dandy Casio fx-115 ES scientific calculator. Treat wedgie pullers with the same approach, by outsmarting them with your intellect. Instead of providing them a head to flush in the toilet, give them your mind. If homework help does not sway them, remind them that you’re associated with the Goths and their toughness has rubbed off on you. This new ferocity of yours will make bullies actually THINK (twice!) before feeding you a knuckle sandwich.
    Jocks-Art Class
    A course in which academic skill cannot compete with imaginative expression is definitely one to be apprehensive about. Picasso, Monet, and van Gogh brush genius on a canvas while you and your scientific calculator finger-paint. Of course, you admire what you believe is beyond your capabilities, but don’t underestimate yourself. Many great artists rose from obscurity and you can join the ranks by taking the knowledge you have gained in AP Physics and utilizing it to create game plans for the coach. In turn, this will earn the respect of jocks when they score the winning touchdown. You can be the Phil Jackson of the Apaches!
    Teacher’s Pet – TA
    Now that you’ve conquered the Goths, bullies, jocks, and cheerleaders, your next step is to replace those kiss-ups who rely on their deviously pleasant ways to make the grade. Instead of laughing along with the class at their adorably stupid remarks, make corrections to what they say. Soon enough, their true ignorance will be exposed. This transition from a shy nerd to the teacher’s favorite is [change to 'may be'] one small step for you, but one giant leap for nerdkind.
    Armed with this new information and confidence to match, you are ready to take the high school world by storm. Don’t be let down if you’re not an overnight superstar. After all, you can’t make the A-list glossy pages in a day! [< this part of the joke may be confusing; people will be wondering 'Which glossy pages?']

    Every year, AHS earns a profitable amount of money selling yearbooks to nerds, but an obvious question comes to mind: why do nerds even buy yearbooks?
