Smart is the New Sexy…

September 21, 2009


So after months of anticipation, I am finally at Awesome University.  Grad school is quite different from Undergrad U.  The campus is double the size of my alma mater, the class sizes are incredibly small and I only have two classes.  Of course, the one thing that obviously has to remain similar to undergrad is that my program is comprised of approximately 96% females.

Not so awesome.

Aside from that, I’ve been doing extra mingling with fellow grad students in hopes of avoiding spending the next two year as a loner.   The following are things that I’ve noticed about grad students:

1) Grad students like their beer

2) Grad students like intellectual conversations over beer (Because only Trivia Night would exist at a Grad Club)

3) Grad students really, really like The Big Bang Theory

Of course, the last point shouldn’t come as much as a surprise since it would be fitting that a group of semi-awkward intellects balancing academia, life and love would find a show about a group of awkward geeky intellects attempting to balance academia, life and love to be entertaining, as well as relatable.

Also, any show that would allude to the idea that a hot blonde would ever end up with a complete dork, is a definite “plus” for every geeky male.

    Beer. They like it? They sure do.

    Geek fantasy. Makes sense. Except you said 96% of your program is female.

      It’s okayyyy…. i do have many issues with the show though (i.e. how they represent females and ethnic minorities on the show). But sheldon does have his moments… I’ll still end up watching it so i can schmooze with the other grad students. hahaa.
