To the girl who wrote this, I know how you feel. I get mocked a lot at swim practice because I carry my backpack around at school with me, I keep a daily planner, and I wear my flashdrive on a lanyard around my neck. But don't worry, because the G&T people are the one's who really count right now, and then colleges in the future who will more than appreciate your hard work ethic. Keep your head up, and be confident with who you are!! (P.S. There are many guys out there who REALLY dig the smart and dorky type)
(P.S.S I absolutely adore and appreciate your fake name, "A+nnoyed". Insanely clever, Bravo

That's so weird! At my school, you are well-liked if you get good grades! And next time people say you are geeky or anything, just laugh and play along! It makes them so mad, and it makes you less mad, so maybe they will stop! Haha, good luck!

Hey I know how you feel I consider myself as a geek too. Here's what I have learned over the years u need to reject the status, these people are just jealous of who u r, and for that u should be proud.

I know exactly how you feel. I have always been in all honors classes and am gifted and sometimes get teased for being "too smart". Just try to persevere, ten years from now you will be much more successful than everyone else.

hey girl don't beat yourself up about it. I'm also in the Gifted and Talented program. Like you, I also get called "geek" "nerd" and "miss know it all". I totally feel for you. How I deal with it is I take them all in as complements. (It actually helps a little!) ;)

Hey, don't feel bad about being a geek. In my opinion, a "geek" is a really awesome smart person. I consider myself geeky all the time. In fact there are a few books about girls who consider themselves as "geeky" or "dorky." There is also a Disney movie that just recently went on Disney channel called "Frenemies" and the website these two friends make is called Geekly Chic. So like I said, don't feel bad about being a geek!
