As many nerds out there know one of the best parts of being a nerd is talking about all your various fandoms! Especially when it’s happy or exciting things. When it’s something widely enjoyed by many people, like the MCU or Game of Thrones, there’s plenty of people to talk to and life is good. But what do you do when those around you don’t care about your current obsession or it’s something more niche and they have no idea what you’re talking about? For me thats usually the anime/k-drama I’m watching or something about my favorite YouTubers. Luckily though I have one friend who also enjoys anime/k-drama so I can talk to them about anything in the shows and even watch it with them and they will also get happy which will make even more happiness. But when I get excited about The Boys releasing No No Brush plushes again or being in a dino herd with SovietWomble on The Isle no one I know understands how big of a deal that is, so I sit in silence unable to share the joy. But I’m get off point, so what do you do when you can’t share the joy? You “suffer” in silence that’s what you do.
But honestly that’s how it feels some times. Because you have so much happiness and you want to share that happiness and in turn make even more happiness which makes even more happiness. Seriously it can be an infinite loop if you let it, like sometimes I feel like my nerd joy could power a nuclear power plant. But back on track again when those joyous emotions have no one to be shared with they kinda just fizzle out. Like I think that it’s actually harder to not be able to share happiness then sadness. If I go to someone and complain about a character dying they’ll usually understand since they can image their own favorite characters dying and they will share your pain and comfort you and then life is good. But if I go and try and share my EXTREME excitement about buying and the subsequent wait time till I get The Boys No No Brush plush no one understands. They don’t know that the said plush came out before and you missed your chance last time. They also don’t know that it’s a limited-time thing and that you may never get the chance again. And they DEFINITELY don’t understand what’s so amazing about a strange green brush character in underwear and the history behind it. Like seriously how do you explain this to someone whose never watched a Boys video?
They see this pic and have no idea what to think, I see this pic and get super excited about how that guy(the green one) will be mine soon!
I go through the same thing when I’m able to get into a dinosaur herd with SovietWomble when I play The Isle. Which I’ve been able to do 3 times so far might I add. Only one person I know can even imagine how big of a deal that is for me and they don’t even play The Isle. The rest don’t even know who Womble is let alone what goes into getting in a group like that in a game like The Isle. But for me that’s a HUUUUUUUGE deal and it makes my week when something like that happens. Like so huge I keep a photo on my phone to this day to prove it ever happened.
LOOK AT THAT IT HAPPENED! So, when I go around shouting for joy the unfortunate people who don’t understand are always like “wow that’s nice” and I’m like no it’s more then nice it’s AMAZING. It’s the good version of apocalyptic, if thats a thing. So I have no other choice to share my love and joy on here and hope others out there on the world wide web will understand and share some of my greatest joys.
