Nerd, poindexter, brown-noser, teacher's pet, brain. These were just a few names I got called in elementary school. I was a super fast reader and reading is half the battle at that level. Because I finished work early, got called on to read out loud and was put in special reading groups with older kids, I was labeled smart, which led to the nicknames above. It never bothered me, unlike other names I got called for being short.
When I hit middle school, assignments became a little more challenging and I had to put in a lot more effort. By the time I hit high school and AP math and science, I realized there were a whole bunch of kids a lot smarter than me. I wanted so much to be a "smart kid," I did ridiculous things like signing up for AP chemistry even though I knew it was beyond my skills. (Fun fact: Mr. Danes also knew it was beyond me and moved me up to sit between the two smartest boys and said maybe I would absorb something by sitting next to them. I was smart enough to know that scientifically, that wouldn't happen.)
Back then, it seemed pretty easy to figure out what "intelligent" meant. Alex and Matt, who I sat between, were the very definition. I, on the other hand, was a little farther down on the scale. Now that I'm a lot older and a little bit wiser, I'm pretty sure that the definition of intelligent is as varied as we can imagine. There are book smart people with no common sense.
