And I’m back!

And I’m back!

By back, I meant, I switched my name back to Jenny.

I changed it for a few days, and experienced a interesting identity dissonance.
Originally, I decided to change my name out of spontaneity. I’ve been Jenny for a while, and thought it would be a fun change. I picked Iorek because of its sheer awesomeness. Who wouldn’t want to be king of the armored bears?

A few days into my name change experiment, I felt a weird discomfort. I was neither Iorek nor Jenny, but limboed somewhere in-between. Perhaps it was due to my non-enforcing of the name change or perhaps it was due the letting go of a time-built identity, but I oscillated between two personas, in a rather unpleasant way.

So, I switched back back.
While being a Panserbjørn is super cool, my current name is awesome as well.

Jenny
