Signs That You're The Dork In Your College Class

Nerd, geek, dork or whatever you want to call it. College is clearly defined by the different groups of people within it. Do you overdo things in college, put work ahead of fun, and everything else ahead of your social life? Here are the signs that you're the college dork.

11. You have never failed any college exam or assignment.

You dedicate yourself wholeheartedly to the job at hand. If you ever got below 50% you think you'd fall to your knees and cry.

10. You study all your lecture readings ALL the time.

It's okay to take a break sometimes, but you don't see it that way. All work has to be done right and on time, all of the time. Sometimes your classmates don't even think you're human. You're like a machine.


9. The library is your second home.

Where the library is a dungeon of hell for most students, to you it is a sanctuary or safe haven. You're in the library even when it is nowhere near exam or assignment time.

8. You never socialise with classmates outside college.

You'll socialise with your classmates, sure. But when it comes to doing anything with them outside of college hours you're nowhere to be seen. You always have an excuse on hand not to hang out with them.


7. You hand assignments in more than 2 days before they're due.

You're not associated with the other "cretins" in your class. Procrastination is not a word which is synonymous with your life. You get your stuff done and well before it's due, and then you rub it in the procrastinator's face.

6. You've never had a black week.

A black week is a full week of college in which you made no appearance, not even from the bench. You get weak at the knees, and sick at the thought of missing that much college unless it were due to a life-threatening illness. But even at that, they'd have to tie you to the hospital bed to stop you from attending your double media audiences lecture.


5. You raise your hand every 5 minutes in lectures.

Asking questions is what you live for. You'll never be the one to hold something in. Your hand shoots up as frequently Ewan McGregor in Trainspotting. And it really gets under everybody else's nerves.

4. You shoot scary looks at classmates for talking during lectures.

You're the one who shouts "SHH" across the room if a classmate is talking during a lecture. Yeah, you're THAT person. That's a surefire sign that you're the college dork of your class, and probably just a douchebag in general.


3. You never allow anyone to copy your notes.

You write all your notes in Irish or shorthand so you have an excuse to reject your classmate's queries about your notes.

2. A golden week is nothing on you.

Golden weeks literally occur every week for you. Wind, hail, rain or snow, you'll be there. No excuses. You live for learning, but not so much socialising.

1. You have never arrived into college hungover/drunk.

It goes against everything in the fibre of your being. You cannot stand when your classmates arrive into college, stinking of alcohol from the previous night's gallivanting and debauchery, and you vow to yourself never to do the same.
