imabookworm -> Banzaï

26 Sep

Hi it’s imab00kworm, or I was…

I decided that seeing as I’m starting a new part of my life I might as well finally change my wordpress username, partly because I’ve never liked “imab00kworm” that much and I’ve wanted to change it for a while (because it couldn’t compare to a name like DragonSpark), the other reason I’m doing this now is because I finally have a good name to use: during my integration (some call it “freshers week”) I was baptised “Charge Banzaï”. Banzaï is a Japanese war cry meaning “ten thousand years”, a banzaï charge was named such as “Banzaï!” was what samurai would scream during their last attack which was basically a suicidal charge towards the enemy, katanas against canons. It’s a very unusual name to be given to me as I’m usually quite reserved so you’d think I’d be the last to get a name like that! I guess once I’m confident with the people around me I can be like that: charging towards the future against all odds, daring and bold, and I hope I’ll always do that because that’s how I’ll be able to make the most of life and I could avoid a few regrets along the way.

Banzaï is as much a description as a promise to myself, to try to always dare to do things, to keep coming out of my shell, and to live life to the fullest I can.

“They say we are what we are
But we don’t have to be…
‘Cause we could be immortals,
Just not for long…”

Immortals – Fall Out Boy

    I loved the “old” name and I’m sure I will come to like the new one too, it sounds like a fitting name for you.

      Thank you, maybe it’s like doctor who, you start off by missing the last doctor only to end up loving the current one 😉
