Childhood Aim Screennames
- 1.Bejota1In Spanish class the name "B.J." was pronounced "Beh-Hota." After I traveled to Costa Rica on a community service trip in the summer after sophomore year, I kept in touch via letters with some kids I met who I noticed spelled my name phonetically, "Bejota." I loved this and used it when I could find an excuse. Someone must have beat me to it on AIM so I got Bejota1.
- 2.ChestStetsonMy former college roommate and current best friend has the name Chess Stetson. I created this name in college to impersonate a cockier version of Chess to people who knew us both. I guess I have always loved creating social media characters. Chess, I'm sorry.
- 3.DaxSux44Okay. My first big break was on the show "Punk'd," replacing Dax Shepard, who seemed impossibly famous to me at the time. In a silly way I took him on as a rival in my mind, and constructed this screen name. "DaxSux" was available but I wanted to imply this was a very popular sentiment on AIM. Sorry, Dax. You're a really good actor and you don't sux.
