My name

Lauren Marie Verity.

I really hate my first name. Lauren is the most overused name ever. I know more Laurens than I know of any other name. It got a bit frustrating in middle school and high school to always be referred to as "Lauren V." instead of just Lauren.

Marie is my great-grandmother's name. Nothing too special.

Verity is my dad's last name, but it is an English word meaning truth, which is cool.

I actually go by Ren with my UC Irvine friends and Laure-Marie with most of my french friends and Skidmore friends, because I have French blood and Laure-Marie is way more badass than Lauren.

The End
