I have mostly been writing undr my real name.
However, I’m not Filipino and there is a Filipino celebrity Jason Abalos. This has resulted in my Facebook page being populated with an overwhelming number of mistaken Filipinos.
Over the next year, I’ll be converting to my original idea to fix this issue: ARJRA.
My full name is Jayson Robert Abalos.
Though I’m atheist, I studied biblical exegesis and textual anthropology for quite a while and fell in love with the ancient art of chiastic literature. A form of allegorical narrative where the story mirrors itself between front and back correlated parts of the story.
For example, if our hero was born in obscurity, in filth, and nearly alone, but foretold to be great, then they would die widly known in a humiliatingly unflattering manner out in the open for all to see, yet none willing to look.
Or if in an early part our hero is trapped hanging upside down in a cave and saves himself by reaching out to get his weapon and cutting the arm off his captor, then later we can find him trapped high in the sky hanging upside down from a structure, missing his own hand and having to reach out emotionally to call his friends to save him.
Or, if a friend of our hero early on saves our hero from freezing to death by putting him inside of a dead beast, we might see that friend later frozen into captivity while all around him are powerless to save him.
As such, because I like the art method (I even wrote a song using the method), JRA are my initials, and flip it to the front and ARJ.
