J is for Jane. Hi Jane, where's Tarzan? If I had a dime for every time I heard that in my life I'd be rich, along with the other favorite, Jane the Pain.
I grew up truly hating my name. Fun With Dick and Jane. I knew no other Janes and I had a ton of friends whose names were Mary. My little group of friends included; Mary, Mary, Mary, Terri, Jerri and Jane.
However, today I have embraced my name and have even come to like it. What better name to have as a teacher than Jane to illustrate "silent E" to my emergent readers?
I was named after my mother's sister whom I never met (long story) and her cousin, Jane. These were two very dear people in my mother's life.
Names aside, I am very happy right now with the Jane that I have become. Life has given me a fair shake at both joys and challenges. I have been unsure of myself at times but right now in my life, I really like me.
