  • I didn’t realise Kya was an alias.. so we’re similar in that way :D Up until recently I can’t remember the last time I used my real name online. And I still don’t provide my last name.

    Random fact about me, hmm… I love dogs and puppy’s so much but I’ve never actually owned one.

  • I didn’t know that you suffered from a mental illness nor that Kya was an alias. It’s awesome how you want to help people to see the best in them. That’s something I aim for when I meet someone. When I first started blogging (well on Neopets) earlier, I had used “Bubblez” as my alias and I still use it. But trying to switch to using my real name while commenting on blogs is hard because when I was younger, I got teased by my classmates for it.

    Random fact about me: I was born with a speech problem. I tend to mix up my Ys and Ls. As a result, I had to go to a speech therapist and put in ESL classes. I remember one time in elementary school, I gave a fit because I didn’t want to go.

  • I suffer from PCOS, too. I’m also a smoker, but I’m trying to quit, but I haven’t quite succeeded. Yet. X___X;

    I’m trying to count how many online friends I’ve met, and I can say I’ve managed to meet at least 8? Some in Korea and some in Japan! :D

  • I’ve written posts like this, I even had a “random things about me” page in my about section in my previous domains. Hm, I have one tattoo, nine scars on my left knee, tonight is the first time I watch Star Wars, Episode IV :D

  • One random fact about me:

    For some reason, I always thought your natural hair color was blonde. WHYYYY? Hahaha. Is it because when I first “met” you, you had blonde hair? Is it because I associate you with the Malfoy’s? Is it because of your mom? Is it because blondes have more fun?

    ANSWER ME.

    I love you. :)

    • Kya

      Hahahah. I kind of wish it was blonde. It would be easier to dye. My mum has red hair now, which is so weird because I used to have red hair a lot and she always had blonde. xD

      Hahha. I love you.

  • I used to go by an online name too! :) I don’t use it much anymore (but I still have an email under it) because I feel like I need to go by my real name in order to maximize my online presence as a freelance artist.

    I totally agree about number 16. I have like the WORST social skills offline. I’m super awkward.

    About number 18: Yes, I can see that. |) You come up with like, the BEST and most kawaii domain names ever.

    1. Tell me a random fact about you.
    Up ’til high school, my siblings and I weren’t allowed to watch TV and use the internet on weekdays. My mom, to this day, thinks TV kills creativity.

    2. If you have created a similar blog post, provide a link to it.
    None yet! But I do hope to make one soon :3

  • Cat

    Wow, you’ve tried a lot of hair colors! I’ve only done dark red on mine. I also have tattoo ideas, but no tattoos right now. I can’t make up my mind on whether I should actually do it or not.

    You’ve been blogging for a long time! I’ve been making websites for 16 years, but I think I’ve been blogging for 13 or 14 years. I’m the opposite on domain names though. All of mine are two words, hyphenated. I’ve met a few of my online friends in person as well. I hope to meet even more :D

    I liked learning more about you! I did a similar entry recently, which was the 5 random facts one that you already saw :)

  • Hm…when I was little, I wanted to be President of the United States. I’ve no piercings. I don’t smoke or drink alcohol. I’m never sure what is meant by natural haircolor…is that the color you were born with? If so, I’m a ginger. :D I’ve not met any of my online friends – I’m kinda scared to and worried that they won’t like me in person. :'( Jessica is my real name…lol – it’s a way too common name. As for the tattoo thing – find an artist that uses the drawings as the base, not one who freehands their art. I also failed a cooking course in high school…mainly because I couldn’t make french fries from scratch. :P And I told you more than one fact about me – so I’ll end with the fact that I have a tendency to ramble and I talk with my hands.

    Uhm…I think I may have done this type of post before – on my previous website? So I’ll definitely have to do it again. :)

    • Kya

      I consider your natural hair colour, the colour that it is when not dyed. :D

  • Even though we don’t talk online as much as I’d like to, and haven’t yet met offline, I find that unlike some others who read your blog, I knew most of these facts about you already. :)

    Like you I have a handful of piercings (six only XD) and am a serial hair-colourer. I have only done multiple shades of red, purple, blonde, brown and black though. :D

    The internet wasn’t connected for me until 2001 either! All my friends had the “internet” and I marvelled at whatever this new thing was. It’s fair to say I have been blogging since around that time too. I feel old. :p

    You’re not alone in your struggles and definitely not alone in your dreams and aspirations! I think we have quite a bit in common :) :) <3 <3

    A fun fact about me is that I used to have hair down to my knees :D

    • Kya

      It’s cool that we have known each other online for so long. I hope that we can meet each other one day, that would be great. Maybe if I ever stop being so nervous of meeting people. >.< I can remember when one of my friends had the internet and said they were speaking to someone in Germany. I was so amazed and couldn't imagine how haha.

  • Aw… I didn’t realize you had PCOS. I feel like we have some things in common!

  • No 10. YAS!

    Hmm random fact.. I love garlic xD?

  • It’s pretty cool that you met four of your online friends so far! I only met 1 so far :o. What kind of ideas do you have for your tattoo if you don’t mind sharing? The only thing that worries me are the skills of the tattoo artist. I’ve seen friends who have messed up tattoos because the artist couldn’t draw it right. I think watercolor tattoos are nice (though I’m not getting a tattoo myself). I think 2000~2002 was a great year to start on the internet, it’s not too early where all of the weird junk was around and it was the right time where you can easily adapt to it. I notice that you like one worded usernames and domains! That’s how you have so many cute domains and names ;).

    One random fact about me…. I like cars a bit too much sometimes :d.

  • I’ll make a post like this once I’ve cooled off a bit.

    I refuse to believe that Kya isn’t your real name ;) it’s too you! There’s no way you’re not a Kya!

  • Wow you have a lot of body piercings! Btw, my name is Gail. Hope we could be friends. :)

  • Even though I know your real name, I think to me Kya is actually your real name – or at least a nickname of great importance. I think it’s so representative of you it would be weird to call you anything else.

    Random fact about me: I’m at my happiest when I’m cold and ever so slightly disgruntled.

  • Ana

    I had no idea Kya was an username, I thought it was your real name. :p

    -RANDOM FACTS-

    1) I have several webnames, and I run a few sites under each of them.
    2) I love to test new shared hosts and buy new domains….even when I have no need, time or money for both.
    3) I’ve been online since 2000ish, and blogging since 2009.
    4) I love english more than my mother language, italian, so I only run english sites.
    5) I’m not a light-weight; I weigh about 92kg.

  • Ah, I didn’t know Kya was an alias. You learn a new thing everyday :) When I was younger I wanted to be a writer, too. Still do. I’m a smoker too, but I’m trying to cut down.

    Random fact about me: I had alopecia from between the ages of 7 and 9. Still haven’t fully got my hair back, but hey ho. Glad I still have some :)

    Will definitely need to write a post like this soon!

  • I think Kya is an adorable screen name! :D I had a lot of online names in the past, but I’m comfortable being referred to my real name now.

    I might make a post like this once things have settled down. :)

  • 12 years is a great milestone. I am almost there but not quite yet. :)

    Between reading the book and watching many movie adaptions repeatedly I have probably watched Pride and Prejudice 30 times within the past 4 years.

  • Questions
    1. Tell me a random fact about you.
    A. I’m a huge fan of the singer named Meat Loaf, and I have 3 tattoos.

    2. If you have created a similar blog post, provide a link to it.
    A. I don’t have one similar. Sorry.

  • #19 is so adorable. And I can totally relate to #16, haha. People who know me well Are used to me stumbling through almost any conversation, hahaha.

    These are interesting facts! You inspired me to make a list section on my blog! :B

  • I’ve always thought Kya was your name! And I used to smoke, but I have put that behind me to start my life in “luxury living” haha not as fancy as it sounds…then again, to each their own!

    A random fact about me: When I was 8, I teased a goose with a piece of bread and it started getting grouchy so I ran, but this enticed it to run after me and bite me on the butt. NO JOKE. To this day, I am tremendously afraid of geese where I would 10/10 panic whenever I am anywhere near any. :{

  • I’m 4’10” and if I had longer hair and put it in pig tails, then I look like a cute school girl. I don’t know how that sounds, but I once had police called on me, because people passing by thought I was a young teenage girl walking alone at night (which I was doing).

    Kya is a cute name. My online name is either Ayumi or Shellyyum <3

  • Hehe always something new to learn about you Kya pops!
    A random fact about me eh…. I wear wigs regularly! XD (But I think you know that already!) *hugs* Missing you cutie.

    • Kya

      Not just any kind of wig, awesome wigs! :D

  • Fai

    Kya is such a cute name that it is hard to know that it is actually an alias keke~ so when you meet your online friends in real life, do they call you Kya? or your real name? I’ve been reading your blog for quite a while, I think but yeah, this kind of post helps me learn more about you ^^

    Random fact about me? Hmmm, I love coffee but I just learn how to use coffeemaker early this year XD

    I would love to do the random facts about me post but I can’t even think of one fact to start with!

    Have a nice day Kya ^^

    • Kya

      Some friends called me Kya and others by my real name. It is probably a bit confusing sometimes, but really either name is mine because I have identified with them. :D

  • Woah,you dyed your hair so many times! i wish i can do that too!

    I think your screen name is awesome :) my screename is naomi because i hate my real name lol. i think i might make a post like this too! ^_^

  • how did you dye your hair pink and kept it good? like, i dyed my hair red with purple on the ends and they leaked so so easily. it’s like 70% of the purple leaked during the first wash which is why i don’t want to dye purple anymore, let alone pink. purple hair – especially lilac – is super pretty though but i think i’m over the light color era haha used to bleach a lot until my hair broke :P

    random fact about me hm… i’m a hermit and during weekends / long holidays, you can bet that i don’t go out. heck, i practically don’t leave my room either unless i need to use the restroom. i eat, sleep, play games in my room 24 / 7 so yeap, i’m a half shut-in :)) plus, if i have tea with me in the room, i don’t need food while i’m video gaming.

  • my list is outdated but here it is (:
    http://sweet-child.net/girl/hyaku/

    thanks for sharing this! although I’ve known you online for many years now, we’ve never really had this tight interaction as compared to your other online friends.

  • I, too, want to write a novel but I’m constantly plagued by the thought that maybe I have nothing to say. UGH.

    I wish I took up an online alias!!! My first ever internet username was sicfairy (lol) back in 1997. I should have just gone with a normal name.
