I Want to Know the Story Behind Your Username

    I chose my username because I think this site

    can be a place to let my other person (no I don't have multiple personalities) be expressed.

    American Witch

    Since a lot of people ask me about my username I figured I'd write this story. No, I am not Wiccan. I am not a witch. American Witch is the title of a Rob Zombie song. I am a huge fan of his and that is one of my favorite songs and thought it would make a fun username. That's the...

    This is my second name here with the same

    profile. 455cargirl, formerly known as needalifeboat. I changed so much from the time I had joined and decided I no longer needed a lifeboat. I would have preferred "cargirl" but I had to make it different somehow so I put "455" in front of it. One of my dream cars is the Super...

    What does my username really mean?

    This is the question that I got asked through a private message a while ago and, lazy as I always am, I thought it would be a good idea to create a story out of it. The word leveler refers to an equalizer. A person or thing that promotes the abolition of inequalities or other...

    Sinsoftheflesh: not only is it a reference to

    the Rocky Horror Picture Show, one of my all time favorite movies and a show that helped me feel accepted and comfortable in my skin, but it describes me as a person. For one, I see body modification as a form of art. This includes every branch of it including piercing...

    At school, bullies used to call me Salmon (my

    real name is Sally)... I decided that Salmon would be a good nickname for an account, because no one else would ever think of it (lol) and as for the 140301, it's my birthdate :3 (14th of March 2001)

    Pentupfreedom

    pentupfreedom is an oxymoron. I picked this name at a time when I was mildly depressed. Well, more than mildly depressed. I once heard depression described as being locked in a room with open doors. This description was more than adequate for me, hence the moniker, pentupfreedom...

    'Phosphenes' are those swirls

    and dots of colors and light you see when you close your eyes and rub them really hard. When I was little, I was afraid of the dark. So, when lying in my bed at night, I used to close my eyes and rub them until the phosphenes appeared. I would focus on the little patterns and...

    I just changed my username today,

    because I got bored with my old username. I wanted PinkIsTheNewBlack but it's taken, so I used this instead. It's read as "Pink's the new black". I've never watched Orange is The New Black but I think the saying "X is the new black" is cool.

    PaganPoet is no more.

    Back in June, I quickly needed to change my username to escape detection from my then-wife. I chose PaganPoet in a hurry. Contrary to the assumptions of most people who don't know me, I am neither a Pagan nor a Poet. The name comes from a Bjork song, Pagan Poetry, on her album...

    Darkness is the symbol of two different things.

    The first is evil and suffering. The second is lack of knowledge, (hence the phrase, "in the dark"). I like to think I defeat the two, sometimes both at once.
