Today I filed papers at the taxation office to change my legal first name. While my surname comes into play later, I didn’t want to prolong the reveal any further. From today on I am no longer Torbjörn Simon Andreas Karlsson.
I am also not Tobbii, or even Tobiichi in the way I was before. Oh no.
Hello everyone. I’m Andrea, a woman who watch anime, play and develop games, draw stupid stuff, make videos and talk on podcasts. My new legal name is Andrea Ritsu Karlsson, soon to be Andrea Ritsu Tobiichi. That’s right, I’ll be sticking with Tobiichi as my surname, assuming that everything goes as planned. I have a few backups just in case.
Because my legal name had Andreas in it and I thought it sounded cute.
Because Ritsu Tainaka from K-On!! is sort of my go-to girl in terms of admiration among other things.
Because it sounds good and I wanted to keep what everyone knows me as somehow.
Why that order?
Sounded best in my head as well as my name now being ART! How befitting for the editor of Art Hawk, huh? (I swear, I noticed that afterwards, it was not deliberate)
