Nervous dog vest meme: A few thoughts

I’m currently preparing the final edits for a client’s new book, a compilation of his best speeches, which I have worked on for the past month or so. I have a few thoughts on the “nerdy” image of the dog vest, a trend that started for me more than two years ago and which continued to grow to the point that I eventually wore one for Halloween.

I’ll start with two observations:

While the vest’s origins are probably in the image on the left, the current meme is mostly a parody of this type of photo. You won’t find many dog vests in public places these days.

Dog vests are funny.

The reason I started wearing a dog vest around 2010 is that I am (and I believe you are) a geek. I don’t want to say that all geeks wear dog vests, but it’s more common among us. While I did start wearing a dog vest as a parody of a certain type of “nerd,” it was a conscious parody that I later embraced for the rest of my life.

Here are a few things I have noticed over the years.

Some people think it’s funny to dress up in dog vests, while some others see it as offensive. I have never really understood the latter. It seems funny to me to wear a dog vest. Even funnier would be to wear two or more at once. It is also very cute to see someone in a dog vest in a costume contest. I’ve done it myself and have enjoyed it thoroughly.

The dog vest itself is a funny costume, but wearing the vest is an image that has grown over the years. And now, at least to some extent, it has become a signifier of something. If you’ve ever seen people wearing a pink dog vest around Halloween, you’ve seen my costume. If you see people wearing dog vests, I hope you can see that it is a costume and understand the joke behind it.

And I think it’s pretty cute. Even though it is now sort of a signifier.

There are a few things that have made me so much better. When I was growing up, my dad played the guitar. At first, I loved it and listened to it like crazy. But over time, I started wanting to do it, so I began to practice every week.

When I was 10, I tried to learn how to play the guitar, but I could never understand it. I thought it was some foreign language and I hated it. At age 15, I decided to practice it all the time, so when I turned 16, I finally mastered it.

When I was a sophomore in high school, I became obsessed with the idea of being a teacher. I began to think about how to create a school system where I could be the teacher. I would not teach the same way that my high school teacher taught, but I would change things.

In elementary school, I didn’t know how to spell, so I just listened and learned through listening. But when I got to high school, I studied. This time, I would learn things. I studied English in a rigorous way, even though I didn’t know anything about the subject. I worked on spelling and vocabulary. I began to learn the “best” way to write things. And I began to find ways to write things differently.

As I became a teacher, I began to be more creative in my classroom. And it was a different kind of creativity. For example, I never wanted my students to be afraid of the “hard stuff.” I wanted them to “own” it. I wanted to take fear out of learning. So I created “presents.” They were fun things to do in class, things that wouldn’t be so scary for students to do. If we can be comfortable with the “hard stuff” in life, then we can be comfortable in our own classrooms.

I began to teach “the art of reading” in an elementary school in Los Angeles. One of the ideas I had was to change the way in which students thought about reading. For example, I thought that to build literacy, students needed to read things outside of school. They had to read magazines, things that might not be so friendly to them, and then get rid of their misconceptions. For example, kids have a preconceived notion that black is scary, and so they want to stay away from black stuff. Or a kid thinks that dogs are dangerous.

The more I thought about it, the more I realized that all these preconceived notions in children’s minds had to be broken down. So instead of teaching students, just the “art of reading,” I thought of how I could teach students the “art of reading” instead. Then I got students to read whatever they wanted. I had them read a black and white graphic novel, they read poetry, they read magazines, and they would talk to each other about what they read.

I think this is a much more creative way to teach than teaching someone, say, “Do you think that your favorite movie was good?”

In the end, I think that every school can be like this. I think that schools have become very traditional, and I think that if schools want to be innovative, they need to teach in a very different way.

    It's a shame, but sometimes you need to change your lifestyle. And write such competent posts.
