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