  • great post. sad that we have to code switch, even in our own circles. i love that you also discuss how you can be a nerd and an extrovert at the same time.

    • Thanks Candice! I sometimes feel like people think that nerds are only introverts. I wanted to share my perspective as a nerdy outgoing person to show that the two are not mutually exclusive.

    Oh, wow; that picture just has “Future Engineer” written all over it.

    I think if you had better schools and a more receptive atmosphere, you probably would have gone on out of high school to CalTech and be sitting with a BSEE [ultimate geek degree!] and an MSCS working on a PhD in CompSci.

    But, then again, you met your husband at USC, so everything worked out well.

    • LOL, I agree. My four year old self was just broadcasting TI-89s and Physics books in my future. Thanks for stopping by:)

    I realize that this was written a while back, but reading your story brought me great memories of my own childhood. Thank you!

    I am also an engineer 🙂
