    what is this madness?!


    Here is the requirements for the essay, and you can write about any of the following topics or all of them:

    - Origin of your name
    - History of your name
    - The story of how you were named
    - Advantages and incoveniences about your name
    - Why you like/dislike your name
    - Teasing about your name

    Origin: A description of your play style
    History: Old
    Inconveniencies: Being capitalised makes people think you are the Ft. Laud. Loud Mouth's brother or something.

    For me:

    Origin and story: made it up by putting a random adjective and my fav. pokémon together. How original.

    History: Used on various forums and such

    You be Magic_Umbreon. Lucifer commands it. Or something.

    As for teasing:



    I really have no clue what you are goin off here, the essay is for school, and I wrote an essay and was wondering if anyone can help me edit it.

    Um . . . if this is an English assignment, you should be catching your own misspellings and grammatical errors (in addition to making sure it is arranged in a coherent, logical manner). After all, that's pretty much the purpose of the class.

    Just my weak sense of humour; don't let it bother you. Good luck with the essay.

    Alright thanks, I just want other people's opinions on it.

    Posting so you can post your essay.


    --The slightly awkward, but true story of how I was given my name, Daniel, happened just one day before my mom gave birth to me.
    --On the day before I was born, my dad was set on naming me Erik. Even though my mom, brother, and sister were not that fond of the name, they had no alternative. However, that night, in the hospital, my family was viewing the movie, “The Karate Boy,” and when my mom first heard the name of the boy, she knew that it was meant to be.
    --The next day, when my father came back to the hospital, my mother told him what she wanted the baby’s name to be. Even though he was vaguely disappointed, he accepted the name Daniel. Since my dad did not get the chance to give me my first name, he chose my middle name, Erik.
    --The male’s name, Daniel, is of Hebrew origin, and its meaning is, “God is my Judge.” In biblical terms, the prophet and writer of the book of Daniel was a teenager, who was taken to Babylon in 607 BC after the destruction of Jerusalem.
    --Daniel is a very popular first and middle name, and it ranged from the top one hundred baby names between the years 1900-2005. In the United States, the name Daniel ranks as the twelfth most common male first name. There are about 1,193,150 US men named Daniel. The name is still on a steady rise to the top ten baby names in the US.
    --Teasing, even though childish, does occur at some point during every person’s life. You will never meet any one person who has not been teased in any way throughout their lifetime. Some people may tease people every once in a while and forget about it, but others continue to tease until it gets out of hand.
    --One way people tease each other is by the person’s name. My name gets teased more frequently than others because it is so similar to the women’s name, Danielle. In grade school lots of the kids thought it was humorous to call me Danielle; I didn’t mind it much, but over time it can without a doubt get very frustrating. Over time, the teasing stops and kids become more mature, but there are still a few immature people out there who still think that teasing of a name is humorous.
    --One of the advantages of the name Daniel is that mostly everybody knows the correct pronunciation of it. I never have to tell them how the accurate way to say it is because they already know how to. This is very excellent because some people’s names are very rare and hard to pronounce, so they frequently have to correct others. Mispronunciation can also lead to a ton of aggravation.
    --All of this can apply to my first name, but when it comes to my last name, Zajic, it is very hard for many people to pronounce. My last name is very different from others because my whole family is from the Czech Republic and the origin of the name is Czech.
    --The reason why I like my name so much is because it is very original and rarely ever seen. Whenever there is some sort of registration at school and I have to pick up a schedule, I tell them my name, and they’re puzzled, so I just tell them that it’s the last one in the stack, which is much easier.
    --It is not very often that you see a person’s last name start with the last letter of the alphabet. That also makes my last name stand out from other last names, and it makes it much more original.
    --Everybody’s name means something totally different in each person’s own way. Some people may like their name, while others despise their name. Names and their meanings are what make people individuals and separate them from everyone else.

    There it is the -- means indent hopefully u guys can find any errors that Gir and I have missed.

    if you're referencing the pat morita movie, the correct title is 'the karate kid'...
