TITLE

by MB

All of my middle school life I’ve always had a title. I have been known as The Jerk, The Bully, The Weirdo, The Gross Guy, The Emo Period Guy, and/or The Fat A**hole. Some of my names weren’t all bad though. Some people call me The Laf, MB, BiggMike, MikeB., and/or The Brownie.

In sixth grade I was always known as The Boy Who Will Eat Anything. It really hurt me because I liked to try different food combos and experiments. That followed me into seventh and eighth grade. I tried to be funny and got named.

I’ve always gotten in trouble for my attitude and behavior towards others. I admit I’m not the perfect guy, but every time I try to change my ways and be nice to people I get turned into the bad guy and I can’t help but be mean to everyone.

I try to be nice but sometimes it doesn’t happen. Sometimes I don’t mean to be a troublemaker. When people are disrespectful to me, I’m not nice to them. If people don’t give me respect, I won’t give them any respect! I’m a person who needs to get respect in order to give respect.

When I get a new name, I decide whether I’ll put it in the GOOD names list or the BAD names list. Sometimes the name will go in both lists, but that’s rare. Like the name The Brownie, sometimes it’s funny but sometimes it’s not. Or the name Weirdo. I like it when I’m in a good mood, just not when not when I’m upset. The nickname BiggMike I got from my sister’s boyfriend when we were comparing muscles and strength. I use my initials MB as my signature sometimes. My favorite way to use my initials is: MB IZ NEAR!

So in the future, I hope people will get to know me before they title me!!

Your writing made me think a lot. I really liked the part where you explained how the title about eating anything hurt you because you really like trying different combinations of food. That was a good detail to include. I hope your classmates read this and hear about how their names affected you.
