Howdy, nerds! Do you know what day it is? July 13th is Embrace Your Geekness Day! If this is new to you, you're not alone. I just learned of this holiday(?) two days ago. I know, right? And wait, there's more! Because on July 15th, it's National Dork Day! It's a special week for us all the geeks of the world, isn't it?

But first, let's define those terms. According to merriam-webster.com,
geek: a person who is socially awkward and unpopular
: a usually intelligent person who does not fit in with other people
: a person who is very interested in and knows a lot about a particular field or activity
dork: a person who behaves awkwardly around other people and usually has unstylish clothes, hair, etc.
So are you a geek or a dork? Even if you're both, either or neither, check out this quiz Grammarly has created to know what kind of language geek you are. ^__^


In honor of Embrace Your Geekness Day, here's an Anatomy of a Grammar Nerd infographic for all you grammar lovers out there. What makes up a grammar lover?

And because we're celebrating geekness this week, here are some books I loved that have geeky characters:
Life in Outer Space by Melissa Keil
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Geek Girl by Holly Smale

Did you fit the profile of a grammar nerd? What did you get in the quiz? Let me know in the comments below! Also, check out Grammarly, guys.
