what's in a name?

most people, upon hearing my nickname, blurt out "bakit mas mahaba yung nickname mo kaysa sa real name mo?"

i'd counter, "oh it's not. it's just that i have a second name that i don't use."

you see, i happen to love my nickname. i find it cute and unique. i loved the way how it has double letters and an x in it. i loved how it was MY name and not some patsi-patsi job. unfortunately, my second grade teacher scared the hell out of me in using it in school and other non-official situations though when she said that i had ruined her class record simply because i misrepresented myself by using my nickname in exams and stuff like that.

oh well, never mind. very few people could say it nicely anyway.
