The article goes into many other issues, about the roots of teenage angst, that you may find interesting, but I want to focus on this primary point – nerds are unpopular because they don’t invest time in being popular. While this is likely to be one factor, there are others that I can readily identify from my own experience.

12/1/10 Changing Schools Have you ever wondered what it is like to be a new student? Well in my case it was a scary thought, I had so much on my mind.
