For the record I would just like to say that Germany is my surname. It has been since the day I was brought into this world and will be the day that my journey ends. It is not my Location, nor is it my country of origin.
My name is part of my identity. I remember a conversation I had once, I think it was with an ex but she basically said that a name didn’t make someone who they were. I’d said after given a character a name the character came alive, they got an identity, a voice. I strongly believe that a name means more then just identifying someone.
My name is part of who I am, I am proud of it. So if you want to have a conversation with me give me the respect to check out my Twitter, Facebook or Google+ profiles or here at my blog. I’ll always try to do the same when talking to someone I don’t know yet.
