People have probably wondered what in the world my xanga means and how I came about making it up. Well, first of all, I made it in sixth grade, so I was a immature little girl who thought it was the most hilarious thing ever. Secondly, I had a yellow shirt that had a monkey with it’s butt showing and it said “monkey butt”, so I thought “Ooh, I’ll make that my xanga username!” And also I’m born in the year of the monkey according to my Chinese zodiac sign. Then the 44 is my birthday: April 4th. Haha, yeah. I should probably change it because people will think I’m some silly little girl when they see my xanga username, but I don’t want to get a new xanga. I’ve had this thing for 4+ years. I’m not gonna abandon her. =) I’ve gone through so much with my it! Venting moments, happy moments, moments to remember, things I’ll never forget. I love my xanga. ❀

Anyways, I’ve gone through some really weird AIM screen names. My first one was in 3rd grade and it was lilazngrlc92. Haha, typical little 3rd grader screen name. I’ve also had swtlilangelgrl44 which I had 5th through middle school phase. That was a pretty lame screen name, I have to admit. I also had a time when I was changing my screen name constantly. I’ve had “short stuffxb“, which my older sister helped me make, and “curi0us x m0nkey“, which I got from the idea of Britney Spear’s perfume called “Curious”.

I really think that when people communicate on AIM, email or just online in general, you don’t get to see the real them. They may say things online that they would never say on person, or they could have a totally different personality. They could make up a entire new person if they wanted. I wish that people wouldn’t base their relationships with people just through talking on AIM. It’s really about spending time with them in person and getting to know the real them and seeing how they’d react to certain things. I think our generation depends too much on AIM and email to communicate with people and not enough one-on-one kind of talking. It’s getting to the point where sometimes people talk a lot online but never in person. I admit, sometimes I may be guilty of this myself, but I want to stop. It’s such a bad way to have friendships with people when you rely on online sources to communicate.
