Writer's Block: The name game

What's the origin of your username? If you could change it to anything else, would you, and what would it be?
I've rarely been unique when it comes to usernames, so when I joined Neopets (I know this is about LJ, I'm getting to that), I wanted to have my username just be "matt", but since that was already taken, it generated some usernames consisting of "matt" followed by random numbers and asked me to pick one. I chose "matt1140142774271".

For a while, I would use matt1140142774271 as my username on other websites I joined as well. However, when I tried doing this with LJ, since my first LiveJournal password (it has been changed several times since then [really, it has {so trying to hack into my account will be a waste of time}]) was "5cr33n5h075" (because of PrtSc Land, the webcomic I used to do that wasn't actually online at the time), LJ said that my username and password were too similar (which is kinda weird, because the only characters they share are a 0 and a 7), so pathvain_aelien (who was helping me set up my account) suggested making my username "matt1993" instead.

And that's how my username ended up being my first name and the year I was born instead of my first name and a random 13-digit number. :)

Yay! Mine is my Elvish name. Did we ever find out your Elvish name?

We did, but I don't remember it.

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...

For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
