Observations and Advice From A Lifelong NerdBook - 2010
Feeling a little nerdy? Then you're in the right place. Nerdy Thirty is a collection of thirteen humorous essays that recount personal experiences from one woman's childhood, her painfully awkward teen years, college and those leading up to the big three-oh (no!). After turning thirty and looking back at her life, Wendy Townley found herself in countless awkward and cringe-worthy situations, many of which she's able to laugh about now: camping for the first time; meeting pop-star Jessica Simpson; surviving a Nebraska rodeo; and being mistaken for a lesbian. The more she dissected these situations - oftentimes over one too many cocktails - she thankfully arrived at one conclusion: "I shall forever remain a nerd." Born and bred in the urban donut hole of Omaha, Nebraska, Townley's perspective is anything but cornfields and cows. She is just now learning to cook, does not do yard work, has an unhealthy preoccupation with paper and is often mistaken for a Hipster.
