    Well Is It????

    When I had my “juicy fruit avatar” up usually most people would ask me to explain that avatar.  I made that avatar myself and it has many representations of the things that made my life really important such as the Cubs and Chicago in general…living green...

    Facing My Face

    I've always used either my own picture or Mjolnir, Thor's hammer, as an avatar.I never saw any reason to hide myself online, for the same reason I never wear a mask when I go out into the street.Some people opt for anonymity, usually because their entourage isn't as broad minded...

    I Don'T Get It

    I don't understand why some people put their actual picture up as their avatar. In a world where we are first judged on our appearances, isn't it nice to have some anonymity and be able post our experiences without fear of being judged off how we look as well? I mean, it is a...

    Wolverine

    I would've used a picture of me but for one thing, I have begun to get interested in the X-Men. Yes, my favourite character is Wolverine, that's why he's my avatar. Plus, I don't think I've found one of me yet that looks good and I have a habit of not liking to leave things blank...

    Isak Dinesen

    This is a picture of Isak Dinesen.  Well, that's her pen name.  Her real name is Karen Blixen, the author depicted in the movie, Out of Africa, one of my top ten favorites.  She led such an adventurous life.  The opposite of mine.  I have stayed much too safe for my own...

    Yes. I look like exactly like this.

    It's Me For Now.

    Not sure how long I'll be using a picture of myself, but for now my picture is the real me. Though it is greyed out, because I am hoping that will give people an idea of what I look like without allowing people to recognize me elsewhere.

    Somewhat~

    My avatars are artworks made by me, as how I see myself, or how I will be. So in a sense it is me. I don't feel to confident posting real pics of me, just for the unlikely-hood someone who knows me might see and read some of my personal stories.

    Well, It Is a Part of the Real Me. . .

    Yes, it's definitely my foot and one of my dozen's of pairs of shoes.  Perhaps in time another photo will take this one's place.  Perhaps the curve of my neck, my legs possibly, my torso. . . who knows?  Maybe in time I'll reveal the complete me.

    The Green Fairy

        My avatar represents the real me on the inside. I care for others, and love nature, but sometimes I can't be confined to one place to long, I have the need to move. Sometimes I wish I had real wings so I can fly away to places in my dreams.
