At 9:50 PM today I raked up all the points in my account and got a premium membership. And if you haven't noticed, I decided to change my username.
The prospect of getting rid of BalloonBear has come and gone for a few years, but I decided to finally make one name and use it for all of my social media (instagram, tumblr, all that jazz). I had been wanting to have a handle as my own and so, like most of any life choices I've made, I did it spontaneously. BalloonBear was an account I made when I was still a
kid and out of my lack of creativity, I chose to combine two words from a picture from my then favorite notepad: winnie the pooh carrying a balloon. Hence the name BalloonBear. (I was very close to making a weeaboo sounding username, thank god.)
audweam is a combination of the nickname my sister gave me, Audwey, and dream
because that was the only word I could think of that started with dre
. Thank you to all those that have stuck around since the old days, it means a lot to me.
Fun fact, about a few months ago I found out that there was a musician by the name of BalloonBear on soundcloud. This knowledge did contribute to choosing to change my username. He has some pretty funky tunes. Check him out on soundcloud!
Also, I'm sorry if the title of this journal was misleading! I swear I'm not leaving anytime soon (haha).
