Re: What's in a name?
In my case, my first and middle names are an insult. People have told me my name is "cute." That's all well and good, but I'm not 5'1"/100 lbs. and "cute." Not a darned thing is cute about me. I've always hated my name. My dad took a proper name and made it a nickname because "people will always call her by her nickname anyway." My mother's middle name is also my middle name. DEFINITELY not a name I would ever pick. When I was around 10, I remember begging my parents to change my first name. Crummy parents. Crummy name. Meh!
I'm saddled with it, but I don't like it. Not. One. Bit. My username is nothing remotely like my real name.
See? I just proved I'm not "cute."
I refuse to make anyone a priority in my life who considers me nothing more than an option.
