Hello, I’m Kesten Migdal. In some other language Kesten means “chestnut” and Migdal means “tower.” Kesten actually isn’t my first name. It’s Yoram, but I guess after my schizo parents realized that Yoram was a stupid name, they decided to call me by my middle name, Kesten. And if that isn’t confusing enough, Kesten was my great grandfather’s last name. So, I have two last names for a name, which is fine because being first was never my thing. Now, because of the name change at such a young age (I was two) and the fact that I’m a Gemini, I have some identity issues.
The story has a happy ending though because it turns out that Yoram actually is a very stupid name. I ran into an Israeli one time who discovered that my first name was Yoram and he about died from laughter. So, I’ve concluded that having an identity crisis is better than being laughed at for a stupid name.
You gotta admit, Kesten is a pretty bitchin’ name. I was once in the Swiss Alps in a van full of young American models who worked in Japan (not now, some other time) and one of them swore on her mother’s grave she was going to name her first born Kesten. I became a little depressed because I realized she probably didn’t want to have a baby daddy and a kid who were both named Kesten.
Anyway, I read on the internet that starting a blog is a good way to get in touch with your real self. So, as I try to touch my real self, please enjoy your time here on dowzit.com.
