The Sea Otter Pokémon
Hello, I'm Nichole. A twenty-something, female, Australian, suffering autism/social issues and proud member
of this forum since 2011. Been a childhood fan of Pokemon since I was only 7, and I picked up
my first Pokemon game when I was 11. Pretty much have played every game since then.
Joined PC in March 2011. Became a Community Supporter in October 2012, started off initially as
a Tier 4, since jumped to Tier 5 or as we know them these days, Crystal Tier. I also manage two clubs, and I'm also a mentor in TWL's Adoption Center. Ex Showdown regular, and currently active Tumblr blogger.
Aside from Pokemon, I have a love for cute anime girls, plushies, music and anything that gives
me a good laugh. This blog will mainly be a showcase of stuff I am loving right now, some personal
reviews and ramblings, music, funny stuff, life updates and things going around PC.
Why I like numbered usernames
You know, when people think of my username, they see my name as cute yet simple and easy to learn.
My username's origin, in case if you didn't know happens to be broken down into this:
Hikari - Back when I was joining PC, I wanted a simple and easy name to learn, and I had a big obsession towards Dawn (aka Hikari) from Pokemon back then. I thought she was cute, especially her Japanese name Hikari. I wanted a Japanese name since Pokemon is a Japanese franchise, so I went with that.
10 - Okay, now here's where the numbers come in. I noticed we already had a "Hikari" here who was very inactive, and I didn't want silly underscores or icons in my username, so I decided to use numbers instead. Why 10? Well, I was born in October, which is the 10th month in your average calendar year. It's also a number that looks nice on me, so why not?
You know, I seem to have a love for numbers in usernames, cos it's pretty cool how some people replace letters with numbers. I do love most usernames here but numbers totally get my ego going, especially if it's an easy-to-remember one like mine.
Too many numbers is a bit long for me, but like maybe 2-3 numbers is simple and neat.
In fact, on forums I joined since PC, I kept the numbers in my name cos it grew on to me. And I am proud of being one of the few active users on Ever Grande to have a numbered username.
It's all cos I'm unique, on some other small forums I happen to be the only member with a numbered name and I'm fine with that. Because it makes me special.
