So some of you know my real name is Andy, but wonder why I use the name, Randy. Well first of fall, this is how I got the name Randy.
So in 8th grade during 2nd semester, my math teacher gave everyone new seats after December's Winter Break. He placed me at a table with 3 Asian girls, 2 Koreans named Stella and Kristin and the other one Chinese named Grace (you probably heard their name in my horror story "The Killing Clown
") and I was the only Vietnamese person there. I knew Stella and Grace since we had the same advisement class in 7th grade, though I never talked to them and they never talked to me. Then in 8th grade, I got placed at their table. During the the first few days, I didn't talked to them. I just did my work and minded my own business until Stella tapped me on the shoulder and asked for my name. I told them my name was Andy but she said she didn't like my name, so she called me Brandy because the name Andy reminded her of her friend, Brandy (I never met the person Brandy) and thought my name was too short. Grace remembered me from 7th grade but Stella forgot I used to have the same class as her, heck I knew since 6th grade because she used to hang out with one of my friends but never noticed me. When I told her I knew her since 6th grade since my friend told me about her, she got surprised and then remembered. Kristin, she was just there and only met her on that day. Since then, the 3 girls became my friends and their helper because... well, while learning Algebra 1, Stella would ask me to help her a lot (she doesn't ask for the answers like any typical person, but asks how to solve it and ask me to check if she got it correct), Kristin would ask me from time to time if on how to solve it, and Grace rarely asks me since she was the brightest of their group, even when she did, she would ask me to check her work or explain what the question means. After a while, Stella and Kristin changed my nickname from Brandy to Randy because Brandy was a female name and I was obviously a guy. Ever since then, they would call me that and I ONLY allowed them to call me by that name because my other friends will be jackasses and make puns about it and I would make them call me by my real name, Andy.
However, by the end of the school year, I had to say goodbye to everyone that knew me since I was getting transferred to another school. Once I left for summer vacation, I never saw them again.
Now here I am in 9th grade as a freshman in my new transferred school for 3 months now. I was able to make new friends but they all call me by my real name instead of the nickname. When they followed me on my Instagram account, @randyzilla113, they ask why I use Randy but I never told them about how I got it.
Now in DeviantArt, I use the name Randy as an alias because, why not? Plus, the name Randy gives me the memories of all the fun things that happened in 8th grade, like my prank war (JMS Prank War
) and other fun yet crazy things that happened to me in my middle school years.
Now you know how I got the name Randy and why I use it.
