According to this Redditor, the list below is what his 3rd grade son wrote as his goals for his 3rd grade year in school.My personal favorites: “become a nerd,” “eat a rack of ribs covered in bacon” and “drink 1 gallon of milk in 1 day without going to the bathroom.” All great goals — and attainable! I’ve no idea what “cod” or “hyper novas” are.

Meanwhile, I thought this Redditor had an interesting response to the kid’s “become a nerd” ambition…

I think it shows how the society now changed to accept to word “nerd” over the years. Getting told that you were a nerd 20 years ago or even 10 was a huge insult and mostly corrolated with intimidation. No one would had a goal to become a nerd, you wanted to become an intellectual, a scientist, someone smart. Even that those terms have the same signification of the modern “nerd”, I still think its interesting.

In other words, the future looks pretty bright for all of you who spend your days hanging out on Reddit.
