Your name in lights! October 28, 2013

Having an unusual name, I always felt unfortunate.  All those cheap little do-dads they sell that have people’s names on them?  I never got one.  Having a rather rare name means few things ever show up with my name on it.  On one occasion, I think my parents felt guilty about this and had some guy at the state fair carve out my name on a wooden key chain.  I have to admit that was pretty cool, but sadly the key chain broke after a couple years.

All of that is okay, though, because today made up for that.

I was recently awarded a small amount of money for a project, but the really cool part was that I was the PI on the project.  I got the final paperwork from the financial people at the university today.  When I opened it up and was ecstatic to see the following:

Principal Investigator(s): Cherish

I would rather have my name there than on any key chain (except for the one my parents got for me).

(As an aside, I do have to admit that seeing it in the Star Wars font is pretty darn cool, too.)

Having a less common spelling of a common name was also disappointing because I usually only had the option of “Carrie” or “Karen”, neither of which were my actual name.

I always had difficulty finding things with my name on them, too. But if you ever want a “Cherish” keychain again, we can always laser-cut or 3-D print one for you :o) Congrats on the PI!
