Where everybody knows your name . . .

For of those who don't know, I've been spending the last few months of my life in Pharmacy school (and I plan to spend the rest of my life there...let's face it, I'll never graduate {g}. Bard once said I was too negative. Take that Bard!). Anyway, point being, if you're on the edge of your seat waiting for the next episode of Spork This!, back up a little. There's a lot more on the seat for you to use (10 points if you catch that vague reference). Spork This! will be back. I've been working on a few strips. Now, to take the time to sit down and draw them. That was for the one person, other than myself, out there that gets a kick out of Sporky. Now for the rest of you.

As I said, I've been in school. I don't really talk to anyone at school. It's not that I'm a snob or I don't like them or I think they're stupid, I'm social phobic to an extent and I pretty much only speak when spoken to. I've talked to a few people and I know a few people enough but I've never said one word to 90% of my classmates. The odd thing is, people seem to know who I am. We have message board type things at school and I posted something to the wrong one. The next day, 5 or 6 people who I've never spoken to told me that I needed to post it to the other board. This is a big class of 80 people. How do the people I've never spoken to know my name? The other day, some guy called my name out to tell me my assigned spot was next to him. He had no reason to know me.

It's not that I mind people knowing who I am. It's nice to know that they know who I am so when they say "That girl is a freak" they can associate a name to it. It was that way for me in High School too. I never really talked to people but everyone knew me. It's just a bizarre concept to me. How and why do people take the time to learn my name?

I guess it's because, for me, I'm bad with names. I only know the names of the people I talk to or the people who talk a lot (who answer questions or ask questions in class a lot). I would never know anyone like me. I would never just randomly go up to someone I had never talked to and call them by name either. I don't mind that people do it, but it'd make me feel like a stalker.

Anyway, it just kind of feels like Cheers. I wonder if I'm the only one who doesn't know all my classmates by name by now? Or am I just special and people know me? Eh, who cares. It's time for class and they're always glad I came or something similiarly corny.
