Re: Why did you pick your name?
Okay, in the spirit of this quote that I've seen "Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind." ~Dr. Seuss
A mud eye is another name for a young dragonfly, and I'm not comfortable with the alternative "nymph". I also liked the fact that "eye" is in the name, as I have just found out that I am INTP, and am very excited about the fact that I actually do have something called intuition. I am just beginning to embrace this and trust this on a conscious level. I love the beauty of dragonflies and all that they can symbolize, and I thought a young dragonfly was more fitting for me right now, despite my actual age, as it's not about the number or how old I "feel" (sorry, I couldn't resist that one). Also, since I'm kind of coming back from some trauma, I'm a little cloudier than I once was, so mud eye seemed to ring true on that level as well. I, of course, know that will change, hopefully for the better.
And, choosing my nickname was my way of revealing myself in a somewhat creative way. I want someone to know me, too. And, it was fun for me to do.
My avatar could be considered as loosely related, but still relative...and reminiscent.
