Names

The journal is full of blank pages; mooch it and add your thoughts! When the journal is full, contact me (BM username: tarshaan) and I will mooch it back off you.

The theme of this journal is names. They’ve always fascinated me – mostly because the one I grew up with never seemed quite right, and one of my favourite things about the internet is the ability to use the name *you* choose, not the name your passport labels you.

So… tell me what you think about names. Do they matter to you? Does yours suit you? Does it mean anything to you? Is it just a word, something that’s been associated with you all your life but not really anything particularly meaningful beyond habit? Would you pick a different one if you could? *Have* you? What would your life have been like if you’d grown up with the same name as your hero? What would *you* have been like? What about if you’d had your best friend’s name, instead? Your worst enemy’s? Do you think it would have made a difference? Do you use the same name everywhere you can online, or do you litter different ones behind you like pebbles, looking for that one which is worn smooth and comfortable with use, and now fits perfectly? Have you already found it?

Most of all, just have fun!
