Tomahawk: The Avatar and Username

tomahawk's picture

My avatar is not very interesting; it is just a picture of yourstruly in my dorm room. However, I will use this paragraph to explain my username. By no means do I liken myself to either a missile or an axe. On the contrary, I am very much so a pacifist. I did not choose Tomahawk because of its colloquial meaning, but its significance to me. Tomahawk is a combination of my middle and last name (Tamiko and Hawkinson), and I have used it for various laser tag games and blog usernames since I was eight.
