My love for neuroscience has been deemed too deep. They call me a NEUROMANIAC

What's a Nervous_Neuron?
A Nervous_Neuron is a funny sort of neuron. Is it even a neuron in the first place? No, it is a human whose obsession with neurons has gone a little too far. Ignore that cliche, no obsession goes to far. Well, only when neurons are included in them. Nervous_Neuron is a post grad student and has a portfollio career in research and teaching biomedical science subjects. It is a nerd, geek, dork, dweeb, whatever. Bottom line is, it is a single minded person who is obsessed with a nonsocial pursuit.

    OMG I need to update my pokemon list, but I haven't been bothered. Fail :(

    This journal contains nerdy material, and frequent spelling mistakes. Correcting them is futile. The journaler comes up with some rather strange ideas, that may not make any sense to you. Various controversial opinions may be discussed. The journaler can experience dramatic mood changes and has a strong relationship with anxiety. If you hate neurotic people, stay away. Most important to note, the journaler is also an avoidant, which makes it difficult to contact one on one in real time.
