Nickname

One game you play in high school is to relabel your friends. This one is a goth, this one is more popular, this one's "the artist" and another is the most ambitious of your group. Matthew becomes Matt, Caroline becomes Carrie. Yet when my high school friends looked at my face, they couldn't find it. They could neither find a nickname that suited me nor an alternate name for the one they knew was mine. Even now, I'm the only one who can give myself a new name.
