What’s in a Name

My name is Conner
My name sounds like a boys name
I don’t really mind

For this writing assignment, we had to make a haiku about ourselves. I decided to focus on my name because I think it’s pretty unique. I have a traditionally ‘masculine’ name and because of that I’m always mistaken for a boy when people only know my name. It’s been something I’ve dealt with my whole life, and will be something I have to deal with for the rest of my life. It’s never been that big of a deal though, since it’s always kind of funny to see people’s reactions when they meet me. It’s also nice to think of it as a teaching moment for the other person to learn not to assume things based on something like someone’s name!

This assignment is worth 2.5 stars.
Total stars for week 3: 11.5
