My name is Paige and I’m a junior at Central Michigan University. Time and time again, I’ve heard “Paige” joke after “Paige” joke. Sometimes I’ll be sitting in a newsroom or journalism class and people will come to the sudden realization that I write stories and my name is Paige. The jokes only continue from there.

Sometimes I roll my eyes. Sometimes I pretend to find the unoriginal jokes funny. Sometimes I just play along because my name is Paige and I am full of words.
