Explain your LiveJournal name and its meaning. When you're done, tag as many people as there are letters in your name.

I find this amusing because just the other day Ryu-kun was asking me about the "sakura" in my name. Now's as good a place to put it down as any. Again, probably, since I think I've already done this before but meh. Now for the remembering.

Originally, I had written a CCS fic named Mirrored Sakura. It was a stupid title for the story, especially since it involved the Mirror card and thus was a bit on the redundant side. It got deleted, no backup was saved by it, I angsted as I'd just finished it blahblahblah. It was also about that time that I wanted a different name that wasn't so blatantly... [insert word here] like oceangirl168. Of course I switched it to one that was so blatantly otaku, but I didn't care. No one had anything like it apart from the 'sakura'. No one still does. Works for me.

If you wanted to go into the more laughably symbolic, I like to copy other people's traits. I don't know why. I don't even do it consciously. But if they say something, or do a specific action, I automatically file it away and eventually I start doing/using them. I've gotten better... probably since I've become more satisfied with being me. Nothing like admitting to past/sort-of-present insecurity problems, heh. So yeah, that's what I was. I 'mirror' whatever I want from other people. Not just the good things either. I'm just weird like that.

Anyway! Tagging other people! x_X;; Well... it serves me (and you for being my friends! :O) right for having such a long name, I guess?

Time to study. Two midterms, two assignments, one lab, life's just kicking. And Mum left today. Steph ended up not sleeping last night, which meant that I was up and cheerfully awake when she woke up, thus was helpful and chatterful and cheerful because that's what people need apparently. Yesterday was horrible. Sister's 6-year-old self-centered spoilt self reared its ugly head and when I called her on it, she promptly told me to fuck off in front of our mother. Mother didn't take too well to that, and glared and said "Watch your language, so filthy!" or the Chinese equivalent. Sister promptly stalked off, and as we try to leave for dinner and parents attempt to coax her down, she starts sobbing and screaming loud enough that I (who was waiting outside) could hear her.

No, I don't approve of childish, immature shrieking to get one's way. Nor am I happy to listen to her go on about how she did nothing wrong afterwards. "They keep telling me to be good, be good, I'm sick of it!"

Oh you little rebel you. Acting like a bratty little kid is sure to make them let you do shit. Respect your parents some, brat. *shakes head and pets her 'cause she's my precious even when I want to slap some sense in her gray matter*

Lol, getting mentioned spared me from being tagged. Mine is more boring than anything, really.

And you've already told me. ^_^ And that I remember. These are a few people whose usernames I have no idea about.

XD Eep, I didn't see that I was tagged~ I was at AN at the time! Forgiveness please!

:3 I hope it's legal to do it here. *hides*

All the way back when I was 10 years old (8 years ago), I started going onto irc/icq and I felt that I needed a good screen name. I went to ask my sister for help and she decided on something along the line of comets because her grade 6 class was doing a unit on space. XD We finally decided on the "comet tail" because we thought it was nice. XD; The more I think about it, the weirder it seems now... I never actually picture comets/tails when I type in my name every day. :D

Back in the day, me and my friend sat on the bus together. And us being Asian and living in a mainly white community in OHIO, people that didn't know us from classes thought we couldn't speak english and asked us what our names were.

Now, there was this REALLY annoying kid that just wouldn't give up and we really didn't want to tell him (since he would probably just keep rambling our names and aoighsdoigh i really don't want to know what he would do), so we told him fake names.

I said my name was Jackie Chan and he believed me.
I mean, what reason does he have to NOT believe me?
But it was funny since Jackie Chan is a huge martial artist movie actor star man.
And he was like... "OH MY GOSH!? REALLY!? THATS SO COOL!!!!"
And me and my friend just SMILED at him.
Then he kept calling me Jackie from that day forward, which was kind of funny since people were like..."Dude, your name isn't 'Jackie.' Why does he keep calling you that?"

But yeah. Then I decided to register the screenname on AOL instant messenger, and a lot of the forms of "Jackie Chan" were taken.
And "Jacky" doesn't looks as cool as "Jackie" or "Jacki."
So I decided to stick with "Jacki Chen."
Yeah, sometimes I get confused how to spell his name correctly since my screenname is basically a parody of his.

Haha, that caught on and I guess some of my friends just used "Jacki" as one of my many stupid nicknames. :)

And then...one of my other friend's screenname had "007" in it, so I wanted to make fun of him.
That, and secret agent 007 JAMES BOND owns my socks.

and good luck with tests, lady. ;x
ughhh asian parents. sweeeet.
