I don't really do much journals but from the amount of mentions I got from this DA Questionnaire, it wouldn't be bad to answer those questions as well
1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
-I've been on DA for almost 5 years now, 6 year overall if you include a year that I wasn't registered yet.2. What does your username mean?
-There's actually a story behind it.
It's a combination of a family name from Tan, Shu & Hai. I first discovered it while making a family tree for a homework. I thought it sounded cool so I remembered it.
Then in 2007 that's when I discovered the wonders of the internet, I always wanted an original name because most of the cool names were always been taken wherever I go
and I can't have the same username anywhere. So after countless of time forgetting all my username I decided to have a unique one and the first thing that pops into my
mind was Tan-Shu-Hai. No one ever had that name so I decided using it, but I mistakenly misspelled Tan to Than thus making "thanshuhai" then I just kept using it until
today. I am happy with it and its funny how often its mispronounced XD3. Describe yourself in three words.
