" 'Tis but they name that is my enemy; Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.What's Montague? It is nor hand nor foot nor arm nor face nor any other part belonging to a man. O be some other name. What's in a name? That which we call a rose By any other word would smell as swett. Romeo would, if he were not Romeo called, Retain that dear perfection to which he owes Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name, and for that name, which is no part of thee, take all myself."
                                                          - Juliet

In 6th grade I took the elective wheel for elective, instead of the music program. One of the wheels, which was one of my favorite and least favorite at the same time, was Shakespeare. Part of the class is that girls had to memorize the Juliet part, and boys had to memorize the Romeo part. Then we would perform in front of the class with one of the boys as "our Romeo" I was the first girl to memorize all the lines, so naturally, I was paired with the first boy to finish memorizing the lines. It just happened to be the guy who "ruined my 6th grade life" who I just happen to hate very much. I had to recite words of love and star into his eyes. I had to be in love with this guy who I want to kill. Geez.

But anyways, the Juliet quote has to do with what I was discussing with a girl on Facebook. She thinks her name is strange and doesn't like it very much. I just happen to L-O-V-E my name so very much because it is so unique. I will post the little paragraph I wrote to her in a comment: I am trusting my purely theoretical audience not to stalk me, like I said in my "biography" on the right side of the page -------------------->
 also my friends name

i like my name. a lot. PROBABLY VERY VERY MUCH MORE THAN OTHER PEOPLE. but it is not an average name. IT IS UNIQUE. you are much more likely to find another paulyn lao than fei ewald. fei is a name you usually see only in Asia, china mostly. fey, fay, faye are in the US but thats not my name, no. i've met people name fey and faye and fay and they say "oh hey we have the same name!" noop. not even close ladies. and EWALD! don't get me started. thats german, and in germany its AVALT. It means "from the forest" thats....i'm from singapore, more of a suburban jungle if you ask me. so the combination of mandarin FEI with german EWALD is very....strange, uncommon. but you know whats even stranger, is fei ALEXANDRA ewald. ALEXANDRA. thats a catholic saint. HOW MANY MANDARIN CATHOLICS FROM THE GERMAN FOREST ARE YOU GOING TO FIND HMM??? TELL ME THAT

so. Thats my name. like it? I DO. If you don't then too bad so sad for you. you're missing out on having a wonderful life
