Okay, I admit it...I'm a nerd.

But to be honest, I enjoy being smarter than the next guy.

I work hard at school so that I can go on to be successful - I don't care if it stops me from making friends in the process.

Both my parents are long gone, so I live with my grandparents. They're old. As in old. So I basically live on my own, but make the meals for three. It's like looking after two over-sized, slightly more disgusting, babies.

They can't talk much anymore, but if they could, I bet they would be saying, 'I am sick of pasta!' But I can't help it! I constantly plan to make something other than spaghetti bolognese for dinner, but it's like an obsession - I just love pasta!

Luckily, I have a fast metabolism, so I'm thin, which helps me to blend into the backround and most people don't notice me. Even the teachers barely see me - it's all about keeping your head down and down-playing abilities.

I haven't been out with friends for as long as I can remember, but if I did, I would wear green, not necessarily all green, but with green somewhere on my body. Green is my favourite colour, you see. It's the colour of the grass and the trees and of healthy food and environmental health,

And, if it was a Friday,  would also wear red, to support the British troops. I think the war is stupid, but it doesn't mean that those who sacrifice themselves shouldn't be recognised.

So I silently support my uncle and his elite war whilst working towards a place in an elite college, to follow my eduation in this elite school.

The End
