Hello from over-intelligent teenager.

Postby Z-Xylon on Sat Dec 01, 2012 11:32 am

Hello Mintians.

I am a over-intelligent 13 year old (AKA Geek). I have been using Ubuntu/Mint since I was 11 and started learning C++ when I was 10.
Unfortunately, this brings my Social-Popularity Level down to -1, so I have to pretend to be cool and stupid...
Hello anyway from Me in England.

Yours un-socially,
Me.
This is blue. And this is my blog about technology and stuff.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hi and welcome to Linux Mint! Stay true to yourself, it will get better. For some inspiration, read the "developer of the month" feature here: http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=2137. I think you may be inspired.

Perhaps there is a Linux User Group in your area, and it would be fun to visit one of their meetings? (If your parents agree.) See a list here: http://lug.org.uk/listings. They may possibly have a program for teens and that could be a way to meet teens with similar interests as yours.

If there is any bullying going on, consider joining a martial arts class. I was a scrawny nerd at your age and was bullied for a short while. Joined Judo and later Karate class and that put an end to the bullying :)

I don't get any more bullying than the average person, and probably less because I know how to stay away from trouble. I actually have alot of friends (probably because I'm extremely mad and there are way to many mad people in this world.) but thanks for the links anyway. I don't have a Linux User Group anywhere near me, and I already spend way too much time on a computer anyway but the developer link is epic! Thanks.
