deganawida Posted September 13, 2004 Share Posted September 13, 2004 Well, just a random thought, really. During my lunch break today, a cafeteria worker asked me for my name. I had to stop myself, as I nearly answered, "Deganawida". This has been happening more and more of late, as I find that I identify myself more as deganawida than as my RL name. I believe that this is due in part to the fact that my father and I share the same first name and middle initial, and as a result I often get his mail, calls from his clients, his credit report (not fun), and have had to identify myself for years as "____ the younger". Thus, deganawida has become a means to live out from under the shadow of my father's name, and be recognized as myself rather than my father's son. So, do any of y'all have "identity crises" resulting from juggling real-life personas and internet personas? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
