Be My Boyfriend: Engineering Student Nick Selby Crushes Georgia Tech Convocation — And Our Hearts

Julie Gerstein / August 21, 2013

Dear Nick,

I watched the inspirational and well-soundtracked speech you gave to the incoming class of engineering students at Georgia Tech, and I was inspired! No, I’ll never build an “Iron Man” suit, and I’ll likely never attend the Georgia Tech engineering program, because, well, math. But your speech was so powerful — especially the part where you said “If you wanna play theme music during your convocation speech like a badass, you can do that! I … am … doing … that!” — that I now feel prepared to take on a new challenge: making you my boyfriend so hard.

You want to “crush the shoulders of the giants upon whom we stand” and I would like to stand on some giant shoulders with you. Is that cool? I promise I’ll let you play all the “Thus Spake Zarathustra” you want!

Get back to me when you can!
