To ditch my boring name?!

My user name was justkeepongoing but I think it made me sound passively downtrodden and put upon. Anyway I feel a new year deserves a new attitude so I've plumped for a celestial name change given our current astrological mapping! Has anyone else changed usernames just for the shear hell of it and not just to remain anonymous?

I was on a thread about name stealing and this ones just stuck.

Love the new name smile

Yes, have done it just for a change!

I know nothing about astrological mapping - tell us more if you want! (Not if you don't or it spoils the anonymity)

I don't understand the astrological reference but it sounds intriguing smile

Thanks Unborn love yours too. I should be sleeping but this name change malarkey has given me a buzz!

Quadrantids = meteor shower it's happening tonight. Sadly a bit cloudy where I am!

Oh! Astronomical then? It's cloudy as hell here.

Oops yes astronomical NOT astrological, how remiss of me! I got too excited and autocorrect took over. I really love stargazing it's a bit of a hobby. I've convinced DH to take an Astronomical Photography couse as he's into photography!

I've given up fighting autocorrect. Resistance just makes it more vicious grin

I didn't know Astronomical photography was a thing. Do you use a computer programme? Or 'just' a telescope/camera arrangement?

Manu not too sure, the course starts in a couple of weeks but he has both a telescope and camera. I'll let you know once he's started

Yes, come back and tell us. Sounds fascinating.

Yes I changed mine the other day just because.
