It was wonderful Christmas Day. Santa had brought me the brand new X-Box 360 with Lego Batman. My parents told me I could get X-Box Live so I could game with friends online. I was full of joy and couldn't wait to sign up for live. But when I finally bought it there was a problem, I needed a user name. Thus TTE100 was created. The "TTE" is my initials (Tristan Thomas Evans) and the 100 was a cool number that represents perfection like myself.
Many years had gone by and nobody had ever mentioned my username until a late night gaming MW3. It was Mercey09 (Ben Mercey) and I on a late weeknight. All of a sudden RickRossUgh (Matt Voneuw) joined the party. The first thing he yells into the mic was TT, the first time I had ever been called tt. It was unusual at the time but I had no clue that one day everybody would call me that.
After countless hours of MW3 with Ben and Matt, Ben grew to love the nickname tt. In grade 9 gym class its all he ever called me. The class caught on quick and by the end of the year I barely heard my real name. Throughout the year at the caf table with all the boys more and more people caught on.
By grade 10 I was TT. It was rare if I heard a guy call me Tristan. I didn't mind though. Then the pro nick name creator Ethan Scott came into the picture. I was getting names like Teet, TT Hunneds, Huns, Guns and even West Side Guns. It was wild, everywhere I went I was being called so many names. It had become who I am.
Im in grade 11 now and TTE100 has become part of who I am. Sometimes I forget what my real name is. My parents still struggle to grasp the concept of TT. These days all my friends have a nickname for me. Even girls are catching on. I am Tristan Evans and I am TT.
