A note from GetYourNerdOn:

"Nerd life is just so much better than regular life." - John Green

I'm excited about this opportunity to partner with Dear English Major. Not only am I a lover of grammar and words, but I'm a big fan of nerds helping each other out and giving one another inspiration!

I really love all kinds of art, but couldn't even draw a decent stick figure if I had to. I also love nerdy things. I love learning new things about this amazing world we live in and the universe around us. However, I tend to forget things almost as soon as I learn them! This shop is a great way for me to combine these two passions. I really enjoy the creative design process, and I love learning about new things as I create new posters. And as it doesn't require a lot of free-hand drawing, or any tests about what I've learned, it's okay that I'm not great at either. ;)

One of my greatest motivations for this shop is just to promote the idea that being a nerd is cool. If enough adults can get on board with the idea that learning and being smart is cool then maybe it'll trickle down to the younger generation. I love it when kids get genuinely excited about learning something, and I'd love to see more of that. I think it would be great if the negative nerd stigma was taken out of our schools because kids are just so excited about learning that they're all nerds! (Is that hoping for too much?? I hope not!)

Thanks for taking the time to look around my shop. I hope you find something here that speaks to your own inner nerd!
