i used to be embarrassed of my first name so i used my boring middle name for awhile.

at work i still use my middle name since for some fucking reason people can't pronounce sooki like it's that difficult. i've been called susie, snoopy, soupy, wtf

My great grandparents, who immigrated from Greece, changed their obviously Greek last name (something ending with opolous... go figure) to a pretty standard "white" name...

this was to avoid prejudice and all that shit.


just sayin'
