My opinion to reading Spam I am...I thought it was pretty funny how Sparrow kept track of all those spam names, if I were him I would of just forgot about them, because like Sparrow said" their only temporary and awkward names. Also I thought it was creative how he thought outside of the box to come up with an idea/thought that each of these spam names somehow expressed his inner selves. I think it was pretty stupid that Sparrow went to a tarot to try to change his name, I think it was stupid because I don't believe in tarots or anything like that in matter. If Sparrow actually paid more attention to his spiritually he would of known that he does have a strong name. That meaning from the blog Spam I am.." God see's every Sparrow fall" means to me that If God himself can watch a little bird fall, He's watching me and when I fall down in any matter God is always by my side to pick me back up and help me! I mean think about it how awesome is that name SPARROW.
My name is full Veronica Jennifer Alvarado... I've had this name for 20 years now and I love my name more then ever, Because it's a beautiful name. Growing up in my family I had nick names just like anyone else I'm sure... The main nick names were Vee short for Veronica I had was VJ short for Veronica Jennifer and I had Jenn or Jenny that was short for middle name I still get called by these names today. :)
Because I'm Latin I found the meaning of my name and history from a Latin point of view which one of the best points of views.
"Meaning & History
Latin alteration of BERENICE, the spelling influenced by the ecclesiastical Latin phrase vera icon meaning "true image". This was the name of a legendary saint who wiped Jesus's face with a towel and then found his image imprinted upon it. Due to popular stories about her, the name was occasionally used in the Christian world in the Middle Ages. It was borne by the 17th-century Italian saint and mystic Veronica Giuliani. As an English name, it was not common until the 19th century, when it was imported from France and Scotland." (behind the name.com) I think my name means someone who is smart, wonderful, beautiful, sweet, adventurous, funny, strong, loyal faithful trusting girl because that's what I am :)

The youtube video shows you Ethos, Logos, Pathos. Each movie clip shows you which part is which i thought it was pretty cool how these are a few of my fav movies and I've seen each of these movies hundreds of times and i never paid attention to the Ethos, Logos, Pathos.
what it means
(Ethos- means image) for example if your trying to speak out to an young audience you want to make sure that your dressed in relaxed clothes, that your topic is going to be something that you they can relate to, and you want to make sure that you have their attention the whole time.
(Logos -means logic) For example it has been said that "Logic is the armory of reason, furnished with all defensive and offensive weapons"-(Thomas Fuller,) but to me I think Logic is you simply using your mind and know what your talking about or something that makes perfect sense.
(Pathos-means sadness) for example someone thats depressed or something in that order.

I come from house full of people from young to old, you could always feel the love in my house, when we faced hard times that's what made our love stronger from one another. Family based and church based that's the way I was raised growing up...I played with barbie dolls and my brothers army toys I loved going to the park with my friends or sometimes I would even make new friends :) Playing with my pets came to me like a third nature. I enjoyed playing video game systems like "Saga Genesis" Wii, Xbox360 and the PlayStation3! Has a child when it came to my education I loved PK why you ask? because I remember we used to have Spaghetti for lunch on Tuesdays and Fridays and I love love love Spaghetti :). Well that's my childhood. (Down below in a pic of me in Pre School)
