Hey! does anyone know how to change their nickname on here? I would like to, but I can't figure out how. Thanks!

I totally forgot to send my answer, sorry.😅 But here it is: Go to the top right-hand corner, tap on your profile picture, tap settings. There you can go and change your username. Hope this helps!

On the top right hand corner of your screen, you can tap “Account Settings, which should bring you to a screen where it gives you the option to change your username, password, email, etc. There should be a box titled “Username:” and you can just delete your current username and type in what you want to change it to. Press “Update Account” and you’re done! Happy to help! ;)

@book_addict, I've been forgetting to tell you, but I really like your username - A fellow always-and-forever bookworm. 🤣🤣

Aww, thank you! I spent a LOT of time coming up with it 😆. Bookworms for life! 💕

I know how to change your username. First, you click on your avatar on the top right corner. Then you will see some options and click on the option with account settings. When you get there, you will see your username. You can change it there. Be sure to click on the green button with update account. I hope you change your nickname!

Okay so just go to settings and there will be a section where you can change your username! 😃

Thanks everyone! I got it to work.

Wow, seventh year!! That’s awesome! I got to a camp in Florida for a week in July! Pretty nervous but excited too!

Hello and welcome to the club!! That podcast sounds great! Japan would be an awesome place to visit! Also listening to music is totally my jam! Thanks for replying!

Contemporary Christian or Christian pop 🙃🎶 what about you?

I like a lot of 90s music, like Ice Ice Baby, (by vanilla ice) I also like MC Hammer, (The song "U can't touch this" and maybe pray? it gets repetitive though) MC Hammer is a Christian musician as well! I also like "Gods eyes" (By dax) I really like this one. That last one was not 90s God's eyes might honestly be my fav. I also really like Eye of the tiger (90s again) and Burning heart (Survivor) I listened to the two that you mentioned, and it is, calming! If I listed the music I like, it would probably be a paragraph! but those mentioned above are the biggest ones.

I’ve heard of a lot of those! I like your taste in music!!

Haha, Thanks you! 😄 I'm happy you liked them, as I feel like a lot of people I talk to most of the time, don't know what I am talking about. I like your taste as well! I'm surprised you have heard the same ones I have!

Same for me! Most of the people I talk to have never heard of the music I listen to 😮 Also, I'm with you: this comment would a book by the time I listed all my favorite songs! XD Anyways, yeah, I like 90s music enough. I recently watched a movie called Unsung Hero that was set in the 90s and it had a bunch of music from that era like "Rhythm of My Heart" by Rod Stewart and "Crazy" by Seals. Also, I really like "Somebody that I Used to Know" by Gotye 🙃

I know all of those songs, cool! It is pretty cool that you know them! Do you use headphones to listen to your music? I have a Surround sound system in my room with a Subwoofer, and a Pc that I have my music on. My parents don't like when I crank it up, LOL 😆 (It is very loud, haha.) Also, I've noticed that you have brought up Unsung Hero a few times, what kind of movie is it? I've watched a few movies that were set in the 90s, and I always liked them.

My dad bought a Subwoofer for one of our TVs and I absolutely adore it! It makes everything so much clearer and better quality! LOL about your parents! And yes, I probably have brought up Unsung Hero a lot because it was just sooooo good! I don't know if you're familiar with the band for KING + COUNTRY but it's my absolute favorite! It's a Christian pop duo and the movie is about about their families move from Australia to Nashville TN. It's a Christian 90s film really. In fact, I actually wrote a movie review about on DOGO movies in case you're interested in learning more about the movie. It was super sweet and heart-warming! My mom took me to see it and we both cried multiple times! 😂

Oh! I have heard all three of those! Also, I didn't know that "Crazy" was set in the 90s, that came as a little surprise to me, as I thought it was a pretty new song. I also don't just like 90s music, as there is a ton of modern music that I love.

No way, awesome! Modern music is pretty good too but I just mostly listen to contemp. Christian🙃

I am not sure! I just LOVE all kinds of music.

Okay, so, 1. I don't really watch movies, since they can be rrrrrrrrreally long sometimes so I get tired. 2. I don't listen to podcasts. 3. My mom and my dad. 4. Spain, since I have started to learn Spanish. 5. Lunch 6. Playing the piano, painting, drawing, making crafts, doing puzzles, playing games and reading.

That would be the second person to want to go to Spain! It looks like a beautiful place! I luv that you know how to play the piano, that’s really neat! Thanks for replying!

1) Possibly "Timeless Christmas" I watched a Christmas movie in May haha! 2) I don't, I never understand podcasts because I can't hear them!! 3) My mom, few of counselors at my summer camp, and few of staffs at camp! 4) Portugal or Spain! 5) Lunch (idk why) 6) maybe collecting and doing puzzles, and definitely reading!

I luv Timeless Christmas and in my opinion watching Christmas movies in May totally awesome! Visiting Portugal or Spain would be so fun! Thanks for replying!

Yeah, no problem! My family said, "Watching Christmas movies in May are very bad!!" 🤣🤣🤣

Alright! I was hoping you would do this. 1. Umm.... I haven't seen too many good movies, but I would say, Rocky or, Sight, (Warning, it may make you cry, as it did my mom.) Oh, and also, Rise of the Beasts. 2. (I don't really listen to podcasts. that much.) I could say which one me and my dad do, but I feel as though some would be offended, (Politics). 3. Role model? Rocky Balboa, as I like how he never gives up, no matter how hard it gets. 4. Umm, I have always wanted to go to Hawaii, and Universal Studios Oh, and also, do you mean Nashville Indiana about one of the places you want to go? 5. I would have to say lunch too! 6. My fav hobbies? Working out, trying to upgrade my computers with the budget of pocket fuzz and a shoe string. Putting hop up parts on my go-kart, riding my bike, and going fast. I also like restoring old rusty mowers and reselling them. (the money is saved for a car). Well, that wraps it up! Thanks for this Techfashion!

I want to watch Sight so badly!!!! And I meant Nashville Tennessee, I didn’t know there was a Nashville in Indiana! 😂Thanks for replying!

Sure! About sight, Over all, I thought it was a very good movie, but some parts of it seem a bit strung out, to make the movie longer. I really enjoyed seeing it in theaters, and I think you will too! 😄 And about Nashville (Indiana), we go hiking all every Friday there, as it is only a hour drive. I don't know where you live, so it might be a longer drive for you. If you can get to it, I really recommend it! The trails are great, and the food is amazing! There is all kinds of Ice cream shops, and oooold restaurants, like from the 1800s and somedays, I actually think that building is going to fall on my head, as it is...... wobbly? LOL I am really not that big of a fan of old villages and towns, but this one, I really like! Oh, and also, there is huge pools, biking trails, horseback riding, and ziplining! But the one big thing I like are the trails, they are amazing! they go down ravines, through small streams, and more! I really enjoy it, I wish you could get to it too!

I actually saw the trailer for it in the theaters with my mom when we went to see Unsung Hero and it looked like such a touching movie! That’s cool about Nashville! I live on the east coast so it would quite a drive but still that sounds really neat! Thanks for sharing!

That's a shame, as it is about a 40 or 50 minute drive for us. We go pretty much every Friday, if nothing is going on.

Haha, Thanks! I I take it your family doesn't like long drives? My family will go pretty much anywhere, (that is reasonable). Every year, pretty much we go to Disney World, and that is about a 10-12 hour drive. (There is a lot of things that Disney is doing that I don't agree with though. so I kinda have to tune some of it out, lol.)

The Rocky movies I like. are Rocky 3 and 4.
