10 Make it special to you

My username has become special to me.
Like, a few years ago, someone would've asked my why I chose this username. You know what I would have said?
"I like the word Anonymous and Chick is a col different way to say female." But now, this name I wear have turned into something else. If you'd ask me now what it meant, I'd say

"It represents all the friends I've made and lost, the respect I've earned and deserved to be taken away, the proof that a website is more than just a website and I am more than a user. This is the name I bore when I was suicidal and depressed, as is it what I bore when I became happy again. This was the name I bore when I had no friends, and the same one as when I gained so many more. This username, has become my identity, home, and emblem to always stay strong." - AnonymousChick
