15 Ways to Get Your Geek On

Posted by on November 5, 2012

Celebrate your geekiness. Flaunt it for students and colleagues. Play Minecraft. That’s you–you are sharp, quick-thinking. You can’t help but smile when you see an iPad and the first thing you do when you awake is turn on the computer.

It’s OK. Here at Ask a Tech Teacher, we understand. The readers understand. You’re at home. To honor you, I’ve created this poster. It gives fifteen more ways to get your fully geek on as you go through your day:

  1. Be smart. Yeah, it feels good
  2. That’s my inner Geek speaking
  3. Think. Exercise your brain.
  4. Waves. Sigh.
  5. Repeat after me: People are my friends. Like Siri.
  6. Move away from the keyboard–Not.
  7.  Some people watch TV. I play with a Rubik’s Cube
  8. Be patient. I’m buffering.
  9. There must be a shortkey for that
  10.  Life needs an Undo key
  11. Leave me alone for 2 minutes and I’ll go to sleep
  12. Yes, I can fix your computer
  13. Like a computer, I do what you tell me to
  14. My RAM is full. Come back later.
  15. Slow down. My processor isn’t that fast
