Personally I had 3 devastating things happen to me in less than 2 weeks, the 3rd of which was DDay.

I was at IC and I remember telling the therapist that I felt guilty because I felt lighter, almost relieved after d-day. She said it was because I was working on living authentically for the first time in a long time. So, when I joined I thought, I am Authenticnow.

Simple... JRC are my initials.

1963 is a significant year, not for me as I wasn't born for 5 more years, but for FWSO.

If I could change it, I think I'd use 1968 instead.

But since we R'd, I'm ok with using it.

We own 3 Firebirds. Mine is referred to as the girlsbird.

Country music fan.
Rascall Flatts sings a song about "God blessed the broken road That led me straight to you..."
Which seemed to illustrate the broken way I made my way back to WH5.

It is my nickname for one of my furbabies.
Of our 5 pets, Gabe is the "character", more often in trouble than not, but absolutely adorable, loyal, and quite simply- mine.

I have an online shopping addiction

BrokenRoad posted 9/8/2013 21:35 PM

I just thought you were really really tall.

Amazonia posted 9/8/2013 21:43 PM

Nope, 5'8"!

It really is after sadly. I had a username that I used to use for EVERYTHING and then I used it on a forum where I eventually became a moderator, and realized how completely un-anonymous it is to use the same username for stuff. So when I signed up for SI, I was like, "MUST CHOOSE SOMETHING NO ONE WILL EVER THINK OF" but also panicking to join, so I glanced around my computer screen and spotted my Amazon shortcut. True story.

I had just started taking kickboxing classes about 4 months before DD.

We were on vacation when I found out about his EA and I could barely sleep at all that 1st night. I got up around 4:30 am to go for a run in search of the fitness center, and ended up kickboxing the crap out of a palm tree along the way.

Poor tree.

If I could pick a new one, it would be WhereAmINow?

h0peless posted 9/8/2013 22:32 PM

It's how I was feeling at the time. Still do sometimes...

TattoodChinaDoll posted 9/8/2013 22:39 PM

Tattood because I have a lot of tattoos (over 60 hours). Yes, I know it's tattooed. But many times there is a limit on the length of usernames and I've gotten used to the ood since I first had to use it.

China doll because I'm half Chinese.

Rascall Flatts sings a song about "God blessed the broken road That led me straight to you..."

This is one of my most favorite country songs ever. Bea-u-ti-ful. Now that I've been reminded of it, I'm off to YouTube it for a *fix*.....
eta: Found a *live* performance that's as awesome as the recording:

LosferWords posted 9/9/2013 00:17 AM

I was at a loss for words when I first joined this site. The misspelling is intentional. I got the spelling from an Iron Maiden song called "Losfer Words (Big 'Orra)".

I also like the anonymity. No one in real life knows me to be an Iron Maiden fan, and it's not a user name that I use anywhere else. Also, if you google my SI name, all you'll get is a bunch of Iron Maiden links!

Williesmom posted 9/9/2013 01:29 AM

Willie is my dog. I was attempting to be anonymous, since I have no children.

Phoenix1 posted 9/9/2013 01:37 AM

Because, even though I felt like I was dying inside, I was determined that I would rise out of this emotional and financial disaster with a better life...I am an eternal optimist

Harriet Tubman left behind her husband for FREEDOM! She's my hero.
