Smart is Cool Day
When is Smart is Cool Day? This holiday is always observed on October 22
Are you a highly intelligent human being? You know you’re head and above, “smarter than the average bear”. And, you’ve got a high IQ to prove it. Yet despite all your smarts, you just can’t figure out why everyone thinks you’re so “un-cool”. Why can’t you be smart and cool at the same time? Well, you can. And, today is your day to be cool, if only for a day. Today is Smart is Cool Day, an October 22 holiday. Now you can celebrate the smarts God gave you, and appreciate all of the benefits of being highly intelligent. Certainly, being smart is a really cool thing, even if no one else knows it or appreciates it.
I don’t know why, but to many people, being highly intelligent is not considered cool. Nowhere is this more evident than in High School. Brainiacs certainly take more than their share of teasing and grief. They are stereotyped, often viewed as nerds, geeks, stuffy, having their noses up in the air, and occasionally being a snob. People think of smart people as the “Absent Minded Professor” or “Nutty Professor” type. Highly intelligent people are often observed with their minds in a cloud, completely absorbed in their thinking, and unaware of others and things going on around them.
Spend today enjoying how intelligent AND how cool you are. Sounds like a fun day to me!
