@raniey, I totally relate. DO NOT ever play dumb, or not answer questions to seem "cooler" sacrificing your good grades is not worth it. But don't be condescending to others, if someone asks you how you did on a test you got 100 on, say really well rather than the actual number, and if they press, say your grades are your business. This way people will still know your smart, and people will always know that (it's a good thing) but by not sharing numbers you will lose any negative stigma. Hope this helps, and if you want to chat, check out my advice queen page: dragonsrox1000

Why is it bad to be called a nerd or geek!?!?! I NO GET IT.
by prettyotter on 12/28/2012 7:30:22 PM
don't worry about what other people say. when people call you a geek or nerd it just means you are very smart. And you can get very good tings out of being smart, like you will go to a good collage and you willget a good job. So if someone says you ae a nerd or a geek say thank you.
by fairy farmer on 8/18/2012 8:04:01 PM
I can relate. I get 100% in almost EVERYTHING. My friends are super awesome about it and support me but others aren't. I sit in the back of the class yet STILL I can hear people talking about me calling me a "geek" or a "brainy-pants". Sometimes I worry that guys won't ask me out because I'm smart. All the popular girls who the guys like aren't that bright.
by Raniey on 6/6/2012 8:49:54 PM
I get an a on pretty much every paper I get and people call me a geek but the people who call me a geek get like a f on every paper so you should just shake off the people and think its great being a geek because i now im smart then and people calling me a geek probably are jealous of the grades i get.

Don't feel like a geek! I get good grades and I've gotten asked out six times in the past month!
by prettysister812 on 3/8/2012 7:22:56 PM
it doesnt matter what they call u... as long as ur happy with urself thats all that matters. Besides, I dont know anyone who's cool for being dumb.
by lalagirl777 on 3/8/2012 4:24:30 PM
No one said being called a geek was a bad thing. The next time someone calls you a geek say thanks cuz one day you'll be working for one. lol
btw im also considered a geek but i dont care i want a bright future so I have to work for it

I'm a geek cuz i role-play, and you know what, when pepole call me a geek I'm just like thanks! because geeks are smart! it's funny :3

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
by alibaba on 2/25/2012 6:32:38 PM
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!
by mcw99 on 2/24/2012 9:13:43 PM
i wouldn't call urself a geek. its awesome that u hav good grades! keep up the good work!
by myfatsquirrel on 2/18/2012 9:40:04 PM
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.
by smith0507 on 2/11/2012 9:20:08 PM
u shouldnt care about what there saying!! there making fun of u because ur smart??? there probably just jealous! and wait tell they work for u hun! PAYBACK!
by Lena1229 on 2/10/2012 5:04:29 PM
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!) ;)
by lalalinds on 2/5/2012 10:06:42 AM
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!

Don't listen to what other kids say cause when your older you will be successful
by starstruck0503 on 2/2/2012 5:36:13 PM
I deifiantly know how it feels. I'm in an honors math class that is 3 grades higher than my actual grade, and I'm in gifted and talented english and lit. people kid and are like "oh, you're a nerd, what's the answer?" but they dont understand that people take that to the heart. but i get over it, and you should too. because just think: one day, you may be a rocket scientist, while they're working at mcdonalds for minimun wage. (: they're just jealous.

So i'm really shy even though inside i'm truly outgoing. Sometimes i get so shy and nervous that it comes off as me being mean which i don't want to come across as. I always think people are judging me and won't like me. Also prom is this may and i really want to have a date. how do i bring out the outgoingness in myself? how do i stop thinking people are judging me? Lynae P.

don`t think of yourself as a geek. just be you.
by ergily on 1/17/2012 7:19:07 PM
I understand how you feel. A lot of people call me a geek due to my grades, hobbies, what I like, and who I hang out with. Believe me, I know how it feels, and it doesn't feel great. Just ignore them, and if that doesn't work or just make things better, you should talk to either a parent or someone you trust. It's full proof. Trust me!!! I hope this help you enough.

I'm a dork, because I'm in GT. But I'm still pretty darn cool, as my friends say. Anyways, I think of it like this: the haters will become your employees in the long run! ;)
by _InsertSydneyHere_ on 1/15/2012 11:52:10 AM
I am in the G/T program too! OMG a lot of people on Girls Life are in G/T, except at my school G/T is referred to as "excel". Anyways, GT is so fun! It allows us to have breaks from class (because we already grasp most of the material) and just get challenged while still havin a ton of fun. We even go on field trips and three of my best friends are in the program, too. Probably because we've all been in G/T since kindergarten, so we know each other real well and can relate. It makes us kind of look dorky, but as ParamoreRox13 said, it looks good on college resumes. I just ignore the haters, they are usually jealous. XOXO

Those people - ARE jealous!
Would you rather be known for being a good person, or be known as being a bad person?
In the long run, you and you're friend will become sucessfull in life, whereas those bullies just might become you're employies.
P.S. IF you MUST try to change their minds just a little have you and your friend do something DARING. Suprise them all!. But most of all, have FUN and LIVE your LIFE - the way YOU want to!
by AJWMusic246 on 1/14/2012 7:03:47 PM
I love being in the GT program! It's so much fun and I have some really good friends in there with me. But some of my friends who aren't in the GT classes with me found out when I registered that we would have possibly had classes together had I not gotten into GT and they said I should transfer out of it so that we could be together. Not that I didn't want to be with them, but GT is something that can help me stand out and get into a college and I don't know that they understand that, which is fine because going to college might not be something they want. But I would love to play softball for my college and my only way to get into college is on a scholarship and I'm working REALLY hard for an athletic/academic scholarship cuz it's the only way I can afford it. Being in GT isn't a bad thing and good grades are NOTHING to be ashamed of. Just remember that ur haters are ur biggest fans
by ParamoreRox13 on 1/14/2012 5:29:49 PM
Hey Doodle600, the way to overcome a fear is to face it. So make yourself sing in front of other people. You could start by performing for your mom and BFF, and then start auditioning for shows. Everyone gets a little nervous before performing, but you can't let those nerves ruin your performance. The more you practice, they better you will get. Good luck! Xoxo
Mod Mod Mod
At the moment, I can hear my sister practicing her audition piece for her next play. I really want to do a play, but I don't because I am too shy. It's really weird, because I am not a shy person at all. I will talk non-stop with my friends and family, and I have played solos on my flute in concerts, but singing. . . The only person I sing in front of is my sister--not even my BFF or my mom! I can sing, but I have a broken range, and I am just too scared too. I love to sing, dance, and act, but I don't think I could do it on the stage!I hate presenting in class and singing in front of people. How can I learn to be more bold? Lynae P.

Hey MiNNi, if they were your real friends they wouldn't believe those rumors. The ones who are your true pals, will know you're happy for them and admire their intelligence. Xoxo
MOD MOD MOD!!!!!
My friends are all really smart and they at all in my schools mentally gifted class. I feel stupid because they get srait A's while I would be lucky if I didn't get a C. They go on a trip every Friday and when they are gone, I have to sit by myself. People always ask if I miss them and I say no because they are only gone for one day. Then they say that I hate them and now people at school think it's true. Only 1 of my friends believe it because I always stay with her forever. What should I do? Lynae P.

Hey imposible2, the next time you guys are arguing just agree to disagree. Trade the arguing for flirting. Once he sees your softer behavior he'll start to get the hint. Hope this helps! Xoxo

There's this guy that I like and I can't tell if he likes me, were kinda friends so I don't want to be too obvious in trying to get the point across, but we don't see eye to eye very much and we argue a lot so is there any way to get around this and maybe get to be BF/ GF? Lynae P.

I am in that same situation. I get straight As, I always make it into music programs (that's my PASSION!) and I'm in the higher group for dance. But, people take these things the wrong way and get jealous. All of my classmates, have talked about me behind my back, and I'm pretty sure my bestie has, too. But, you know what? Who cares?! They can say what they want, but if you're nice to them, they'll regret what they said about you. Keep that head up high and be proud of your accomplishments! Don't let words bring you down

Don't worry about it too much. One day you'll be well off and most of the kids who made fun of you will likely still be living in their parents' basements.

Don't worry! I used to get made fun of for being a geek, because I had glasses and had super short hair that DID NOT look good with my glasses; I also got straight A's. Before I came to this school for "geeks" (you have to pass a test to get in) I took a test for the highly capable program in fourth grade and passed, but then I changed to the testing school. After that, I ditched my glasses and got contacts and grew my hair out in a stylish fashion. Now, I don't get made fun of because everyone at my school are nerds

Hey! I so know how you feel! I'm also in the gifted program, and me and my friends get the top grades too. We don't brag, but in my school, the other kids think that we are also snobby, and it's sort of a segregation between us. People have called me a geek and nerd before, and more commonly, "giftie." I take these comments with grace, and smile, and walk away. I usually speak what I'm saying, and get to know some of them better. There's always one student that isn't like others, calling you a nerd. So try to scope out those people, and befriend them, and just slowly get to know the other people and soon, they will accept you like nothing happened. What I did was with my friends, ask them if I could play soccer (my best sport) with them, and we dominated them, and they totally respect us now, and we all get along.
by Qwertypus on 1/10/2012 6:31:14 PM
I am a straight A student and I like my teacher a lot but some kids call me a teachers pet. I know that I really shouldn't care 'cause they're just some random kids in my class but sometimes I think that I might really be a teachers pet. I don't want to be a teachers pet.

Well, I'm fed up with being in the "dumb" class. We have the same classes as the other class except they have Honers Algebra and we have regular Algebra. Even teachers have called our class dumb. I know I could be in Honers because I have like a 95 in math, but I just didn't want all the stress! It's very annoying to always be called stupid and dumb when you know you aren't. Also the other class thinks they are so much better than us and I have higher grades than most of them. I'm not saying that people in Honers or Gifted programs are all snobs. If you spent a day at my school you would see that mostly everyone is a snob...even if they aren't in Honers.

Um I don't think she meant that at all, author of this article. She seemed to want advice on how to make them STOP. I've been in her place before. None of what you suggested will probably help. There's nothing wrong with anyone but the kids who are making fun of her. They are just jealous, though. But personally, some advice to whoever asked this: don't take being called a nerd or geek as an insult. No one calls an idiot a nerd or a geek. If you're called one of those, obviously you're smart, which is more important than being "popular" or having tons of friends, particularly ones who make fun of you for being smart. Stick with your friends who don't make fun of you.
by HogwartsStudent on 1/10/2012 4:34:46 PM
first of all i think she meant how can i get them to stop making fun of me second it sounds like there blaming it on her for not trying to make friends maybe she tried and they made fun of here which sucks

Yesterday we got called "geeks" for discussing paradox's. Seriously, what's wrong with talking about a paradox?
by xaddalyn on 1/10/2012 12:06:51 PM
You really shouldn't worry! Either you can ignore them or, if you want to be friends, show them that you're just a normal chick!
I was bullied for years because I was smart. I decided not to change myself, and now I have a bunch of cool friends, my grades are good, and I have the time of my life!

Sounds Juss like me! ahah everybody makes fun of me in my friends for being smart and weird. But really nobody will give us a chance . . . I mean really! Everyone makes their impressions on us and uses us to help get their work done It's NO fair!!! But I'm fine with being me. So there's that. Oh yeah I have my Gifted class tomorrow! yay )
But honestly I got in when i was in 1st grade and I have like no idea why I'm in there cuz I really am not smart at all I'm just creative haha

Sounds a lot like me..except my friends are the ones that tease me. It only happens every once in a while, and I know they are joking, but it still hurts.

I'm in the same program, so people are always like, "whoaa so your like super smart?" and its totally annoying. for a while i tried saying i was dumb and didnt know why i was even in the program...DONT do that. just go up to them and say, yeah, im smart, but so what? let em know u dont care what they think and theyll leave u alone(:

I know just how you feel! I'm in the gifted program too, and I'm so sick of people always getting annoyed at my good grades. I'm (not really) sorry, but if you don't like that my grades are better than yours, maybe try studying and working a little bit harder? Just food for thought...
