“But I like having low self-esteem. It makes me feel special.”

From: Daria

Genre: Television

Who said it?: Jane Lane

The story behind the quote: This week, we’re getting another quote from the MTV animated television show, Daria. But instead of getting the quote from Daria herself, we’re getting a quote from her best friend, Jane Lane.

The quote comes from the very first episodes, entitled “Esteemers.” In the episode, Daria and her family had just moved to the town of Lawndale and, thanks to a psychological test she had to take, Daria is ordered to take Self-Esteem class. Here, she meets a kindred spirit in Jane Lane, another student who has the same cynical attitude as her.

While walking home from school, Jane mentions to Daria that she has actually taken the psych test several times and knows all the answers. When pressed as to why she still fails it intentionally, she delivers the quote.

By the way, this is the first video that I actually uploaded on the site and not linking a clip from YouTube. If you have trouble with the video, please let me know.

Geek wisdom: We always focus on what makes us different as a negative. But we forget that it’s what makes us different that makes us unique. All the little flaws we have is actually what makes you the person who you are. Try not to think of our differences as something bad. Instead, think of them as what makes “you” you.

Most of my childhood (and adult life) was spent doing a lot of geeky stuff: watching TV, playing video games and going to the movies. To some, it may have been a waste of time. Well, to me, it has made me what I am today... a geeky adult. I actually write for a couple of blogs, namely: geekwisdom.wordpress.com 3rdworldgeeks.com gamemoir.com Please check them out!
