Embracing Nerd-dom

I am a nerd and I can admit it:

I really, really want to go to the Wizarding World Of Harry Potter in Orlando.

Almost as much as I want to go to Ireland.

Highly Entertaining Conversation:

Student: I'm just so frustrated! I feel like there is so much I have to know for this test!
Erin: Yes, final exams for history courses can be intimidating
Student (with extreme indignation): And, it's not even multiple choice! It's essays! Which means I have to actually have all this stuff in my head! I have to actually know it! I can't just fake my way through. At least on multiple choice, I can guess!
Erin: Ermmm...yes, well, that is sort of the point of a, you know, final exam and all that...
