How did you get your handle?

Recommended Posts

Mine came from my love for fighting games. I usually end up using low tier characters which causes me to create the most insane strategies for beating the top tier cast of characters. Winning against a top level player always took a lot of planning/scheming... so voila schematist was born. I never looked back since.

When I played WoW I got pissed off because all of my other names were taken, so I came up with a name nobody would ever make, Zshvchliger. My guildies couldn't pronounce it so they just started calling me Zsh and it just stuck with me.

I think I was signing up for that website mamamedia when I was little. I liked foxes and was a fan of the tintin comics, and tintin's dog is named snowy. None were available, and the website recommended me the handle: fxsnowy.

Back when the internet was new and I was a teenager I could only draw animals, so I ran with the furry crowd. Annie Felis is the name of the bat-winged cat girl character I created back then, and I've been using it for about 20 years since.

I was a very confident 17-year-old about to graduate high school and enter college to study computer programming, so I wanted a cool "hacker"-like name.

 

.....and no, I didn't see Hackers till like four years later. :P

I used to go by I.Medley because I was on the swim team in high school, and my event was the individual medley (butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, freestyle.)

 

I don't swim much anymore, but do more writing. I wanted something to do with words. I immediately thought of a phrase from the Nintendo DS game "The World Ends With You." During one of the attacks, the main character says "Another world awaits." Hence, my handle, and the belief that there is always more to be written.

I'm sorry. I'm so sorry.

 

I always hated the IM, especially 200m. We usually called the breaststroke leg the "punishment lap" because more often than not, it was when our bodies started "relaxing" and made doing the final sprint for freestyle nearly impossible.

Haha, yeah, I can't believe I used to do all that. Actually, breaststroke ended up being the toughest part for me. The lateral leg motion was killer on my knees, which is one of the reasons I had to give up swimming. That, and the chlorine.

 

Also, if anyone is looking for a new handle, I nominate Lateral Leg Motion.
