my name

November 15, 2011

Do you remember in elementary school when you used to spell out your name and use the letters to describe yourself?

Like my name, Kelly:

K  – Kind

E – Exciting

L – Little

L – Lucky

Y – Young

HAHA! Those were typical things I would use when I was younger. And c’mon how many descriptive words start with “K” and “Y”?

But I think this would still be fun as an adult and probably more indicative of who I am now that I have a much larger vocabulary and a better understanding of words.

K – Knowledgeable

E – Efficient

L – Loved

L – Loyal

Y – Yappy

Now these are words that I would use to describe my thrity year old self. And I am sure my 40-year-old self will use different words too. As will my 50 and 60-year-old self. What do you think?

Do you remember what words you used as a kid?

What words would you use now?

    I used to love playing that game but always ran out of ideas because I had an 8 letter first name!!

    I’ll just copy yours! 🙂

    I remember being little and wanting my name to be different…and looking back, I have no idea why because I absolutely love my name now and would never want a different one!

    Oohhhh . . . Let’s see if I can remember what I used to put.
    L – loud
    E – excitable
    A –
    H – happy

    I can’t for the life of me remember what I put for the A. Now I would probably say something like, “awesome” because I’m not creative, and I think I’m awesome. 🙂

    I think our teach even made us make a big poster with our words for our name hah! It’s all coming back to me. I love your “yappy” word 🙂 Those “Y” words are tough!

    Oh Kelly…..I read this and immediately thought back to my room from high school. There next to all my stuff from cross country and track was this 8×11 paper that my dear friend made for me. I cannot recall what you wrote, but upstairs in my hope chest it is safely tucked away.
    Even though we have grown apart I still believe you are an amazing person and very lucky to know you, with that being said I leave you with my words for you:

    Love me! 🙂

    I loved teaching acrostics to my 3rd graders – they were so funny. Always.
