“The good times and the bad times both will pass. It will pass. It will get easier. But the fact that it will get easier does not mean that it doesn’t hurt now. And when people try to minimize your pain they are doing you a disservice. And when you try to minimize your own pain you’re doing yourself a disservice. Don’t do that. The truth is that it hurts because it’s real. It hurts because it mattered. And that’s an important thing to acknowledge to yourself. But that doesn’t mean that it won’t end, that it won’t get better. Because it will.”—
There are 96 followers on this blog! That’s pretty legit. I’m super stoked about that. So thanks for following, my friends.
And thanks to those of you who responded with why you wear Converse. It was super helpful and we’re most likely going to quote a bunch of you in our presentation next Monday. Yeah, you’ll be mentioned in an advertising project that will be heard by all of 40 people. Don’t let it get to your head.
And as a thank you, here is a picture of me re-enacting Up. Because I could. This is obviously the Instagrammed version. See that face? That’s how happy I am that all of you like this blog. For realsies.
I never thought Nerd Models would be this successful. The good ol’ fashioned YouTube advice of “Post what you like and would like to watch because chances are there are other people who would to” totally works.
Since we’re all a little family here at Nerd Models, and families always help each other out, I would like to take this time to ask you a few simple questions that would really help me w/ a huge project I have for my advertising class. We’re creating an advertising campaign for Converse All Stars. I know you guys know them. Many of you probably even have them, so I figured this would be one of the best places to ask.
So if you do wear Converse or ever have worn Converse, all I need you to do is fill in the blank for this statement: Wearing Converse makes me cool because __________.
Use as few or as many words as you would like. We all know the cool kids wear Chucks, but why? Basically, tell me your story. If we decide to use any of them in our ads, ads that will be seen by my professor & TA, and about 40 of my classmates, we’ll be sure to credit you. (It’s an impressive audience, I know.)
Leave your answers using the inquiries link in the sidebar! (Also, feel free to unfollow if you think this is an abuse of my power/position as founder of Nerd Models. I won’t get mad.)
I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you lovely followers. There’s a whole FIFTY of you now and that is awesome. I’m the kind of person that gets super excited when one of my YouTube videos gets, like, 30 views on account of how my videos are not that spectacular or awe-inspring and 30 is a big number to someone with under 50 subscribers. This is on par with one of those days. Easily. You guys are 50 real people. It blows my mind a bit.
For realsies. I’m so glad you guys love this little blog dealio. It started as a joke, and still is pretty joke-y, but it’s a pretty good joke if I do say so myself.
