august is a weird month and a fantastic name. <3
I always wanted my name to be different, but now that I’m in the real world, realizing just how much it probably sucks to have an ordinary name, I’m appreciating it much more.
plus, there is no better way to fall in love with your name than to hear it murmured by the person you love.
(it /is/ a weird month. too transitory. eesh.)
I’ve learned to accept it, but with the appropriate level of snark. I appreciate that the best jokes about my name are usually made in this month, but it’s a double-edged sword, because all of the worst jokes are made in this month too.
