To bring in 2015, I dropped my old "Deaniac" moniker after four years and replaced it with a new one. Part of the reason I wanted a premium membership in the first place was because I was itching to change it - all of the other perks that come with it are just extra.
I feel the old one reflected a more immature stage of my life (high school) when I wasn't nearly
as sincere about my art as I am now. On top of that, I was just growing bored of it! I feel this oddly spelled, phonetic pronunciation of my initials sounds a little more professional and truer to myself.
Did I have to make a huge ordeal out of a name change? Probably not. But hey, I put a lot of thought into my decisions. Hope this new year brings you growth and transition!
