  1. My Middle name is Allison-Marie, but I have been called Allison or Katheryn (my first name) more often than now. However, my nickname throughout my childhood and later on into my young adult years (early 20s – 30+) until adulthood (which now instead, of being able to truly claim those nicknames anymore, people just call me plain old Allison or Katheryn Allison, which when someone calls me out using the name, Katheryn Allison, …. I always feel as if I’m about to be in some sort of trouble, or that I’m possibly about to soon be preached to (firmly and/or directly) by my parents for reasons, that only God would know, unless I really do, have or will possibly act on a snappy impulse, that I shouldn’t be acting out upon.
