A lot of peple out there think of jocks as simple, single minded, little misfits, who like to crush the bones of little nerdy guys. Well, that's really stereotype, and I'm offended by whoever thinks like that. I happen to be a jock, but I'm not sure if I'm proud to say that here in a non-jocky website. I'm kinda weird because I have this passion about gaming, especially MMOs. I love to read, preferrably fantasy books, that have a lots of killing, and swords, and dragons, and stuff. So, I guess I can call myself a nerd, as well; if you combine the word jock and nerd, it turns into "jerk".
When I tell people that word, they ask me, "shouldn't it be "jerd" or "nock"?" I picked jerked because, it adds humor into this boring, unusual character, which is me. Probably right now, you guys are thinking, why is this self-proclaimed jock writing this boring blog? Shouldn't he be with his girlfriend, somewhere in the woods? Or be in a party, where eveyone is getting drunk, high, or knocked up? Well, as thrilling as that sounds, I'm not.
I've actually gotten invited into parties before where people actually got drunk, high, or knocked up. Only except my parents wouldn't allow me. They wanted to keep my social status high with the preppies by playing sports(football, basketball, baseball), but also have nerdy friends. This way I wouldn't get enemies right? Well, I don't know if I have enemies or not, heck, I have no idea what goes on at school at all. I've always thought to myself that being this "jock" would get me inside the all the gossip and the hubbub, and such, but actually I feel all left out, even from the nerd group. Which led me to the MMO world.
Little emo kid finding a place home in the vast world of the great entertainment empire of MMOs. At least, that's what it feels like to me. None of my "friends", preps or not, know what I'm doing right now, that's because being home cuts me off from the rest of the world. That's why I'm a nerd, I love to be in school, because of the reason for attention, eveyone wants attention don't they?
Before I go any further, let me tell you what goes in my head, everyday:
I'm on top of the world, all the girls love me, yet I have no girlfriend. It's okay, maybe some of these girls won't wait any longer and just jump on me. Yay! That would be great. All the guys worship me because of my athleticism, and the way I made the other basketball team look bad last night. Man, you are good! Yes, you are!
I get off the bus expecting a crowd of fans just wanting my autograph. A bunch of girls jumping on me, and guys kneeling before the great athlete. Yet none of that happens, which leads me to my emotional distress. This leads to my depression, which I hide, because people don't like to associate themselves with emos. Trust me, I've been through that a lot of times.
To tell you the truth, I've actually led my basketball team into big games and came out winning them. I'm the starting point guard, should have a lot of credit for all the victories, but have all the blame for all the losses. Oh yeah, if you think like what I just wrote, you'll be depressed for a long time. I know. So, anyways, I seek refuge somewhere where people don't care if you are a jock or a nerd. As long as you love games and have a passion with them, you'll be accepted. Plus, MMOs are the greatest escape in life. Not movies, or even books, can satisfy the beast inside a person.
What I'm saying is that in real life, jocks can almost literally tear a nerd apart. But in MMOs nerds can tear the jocks apart, and better; the nerds can do that over and over and over and over again, without getting in trouble. While the jocks get detention if they even implied about beating up that person. My ultimate point is that, flat out MMOs are greatest escape you can have from the crazy hectic, world.
