When did you create your LJ, and what brought you here? How did you get your username? Has it changed?

I created my LJ on May 26, 2003. Everyone was migrating over here from the Portkey forums (*waves to everyone who I've been friends with since then, hiiiii*), and it took a few weeks to get an invite code, but I got one. It was right before I graduated high school. And that makes me feel old, because WHOA.

I got my username after searching baby names website for names that meant "moon." I found Jacy, and really liked it, but the name was already taken. So I tacked on Evans at the end, as in Lily Evans from Harry Potter. I've considered changing it on multiple occasions, but I've been jacyevans for so long that it would just be weird to me. It bothers me that my tumblr username is different, but someone already registered under jacyevans. And they aren't me. And the blog is empty -_-

I remember Portkey! (It took me about a year and several emails pestering the admins to get my account deleted >.>)

I started mine in 2004. I feel old too. Cuz, REALLY!? I graduated HS in 2003. Srsly though. OMG.

It kind bothers me that someone else has your username somewhere else. Especially for people who've been around as the same name forever, I feel like those people that steal the names are TROLLS. Web trolls. Waiting under web bridges to snatch usernames. (SNATCHERS. How lovely was Scabior in the DH movie?)

I graduated in 2003, too! Honestly, I look back at those early posts and wonder why anyone was friends with me, because oh my God, I was seventeen, and it showed.

RIGHT?! Like... no one else is jacyevans on the web. Why, of all names, did you have to use THAT one?

I started my LJ in April (I think) of 2003. I haven't been here much the past two years because of life and Facebook and, well, mostly Facebook. And now I'm not here much because I'm doing NaNoWriMo and this time I *WILL* finish my novel in 30 days. *teeth chatter*

YOU CAN DO IT! I am unofficially doing NaNo. I'm not putting any pressure on myself, so if it gets done, it gets done, and if it doesn't, it doesn't.

I've always wondered about your username! Very cool, for a long time I thought it was your actual name, lol.
