I grew up in San Diego and moved to Orange County when I was 15.
I've been called hippie (it's the hair), nerd (straight A student, graduated with honors), monkey boy (climbing), Cane (I used one for a few months due to a back injury), and even Walker Texas Ranger (last name... what can you do). But not too many insults... at least not to my face.
I can usually find the humor in most situations. Life is strange and demanding sometimes... but you got to laugh. I take my goals and accomplishments pretty seriously. As for the rest of the time... I'm always down for a good time, whatever that may entail.
One thing I've never had a problem with is to just be myself. I find that to be a rare quality in this fast paced life. I tend to value genuine people and keep them in my circle of friends.
I also make a lot of corny jokes, some intelligent ones, and a few inappropriate ones in the right company. So if you're not laughing, at least I will be.
