I took this name as my username since knowing a character named Shinbu from Key of Heaven or Kingdom of Paradise the name of the psp game depended on the localization. The awe aspect of the name is that you can say my nickname if you left Shin out. My nickname is spelt as Boo but you get the same sound with Bu, and I have used this username not just here since it has a history of usage from me. That's my story.

My name is a reference to an episode of Batman the Animated Series. The episode revolves around Mr. Freeze, a guy who has a condition wherein his body must be kept at low temperature for him to survive. He's not really a bad guy; he's just trying to save his wife and ends up fighting Batman.

Although I always hated how Batman defeated this human, believable villain with a can of chicken soup.

Addicted to Anxiety

I chose 'anxietyaddict' because firstly, I've been diagnosed with generalised anxiety and social anxiety. They're both really annoying to live with. They kind of change at times, because maybe one becomes more strong or they kind of tone down for a while, or they're both at their peek and driving me crazy.

I've also been working on trying to cope with them for quite some time. Whenever my parents or therapist point out that I'm doing better, I immediately deny it. I say that no it can't be possible, I'm the same, my anxiety is still as bad. It's like I don't want to leave it. Like my anxiety doesn't want to leave me. It's taken over my life so much, that I kinda, metaphorically, am addicted to it. It's the thing that defines me now, which shouldn't be the case. "I'm just a ball of anxiety", I always tell myself. It's like I'm ... proud you could say, which I'm not.

So that's why I chose my username to be 'anxietyaddict'.

I like being obscure about shit and I think hope is probably a load of bullshit. Never experienced such a thing in my life.

I'm also bad at latin tbh. I think it should be spes morte, but I don't think it sounds as good so *shrug*

I'm a huge baseball fan. There is only one major league baseball player who killed himself during a season, and that was Willard Hershberger. He had to replace the injured starting catcher, and the pressure caught up to him. The team he played for went on to win the World Series, and the players voted to give a share of their championship money to his family. I've always thought about how kind that was. Bless you, Willard.

It would be harder for others I know IRL to know that I'm here. Having a generic username based on a meme or any popular internet sensation will reduce the chances of someone saying "ah, this is X because I know they like this and that", considering the number of users here. My friends are already familiar with the fandoms I'm in (some even obscure) and basing my username/profile picture on an obscure fandom could make me less anonymous than I would like to be, and the way I talk, my stories and other info that I share here could allow them to piece the puzzle.

Self-explanatory. Not meant to be. I've always wished for another person to be in my place and have all the opportunities I've had in life, I know they would've made better use of it and be happy. Instead I'm here, grieving around while anticipating disappointment and the ruin of my family due to my certain self-inflicted death.

“Pwincess” because I’m into DD/lg, and “Stepford” because if I were to live, I would want a 1950’s-esque, traditional lifestyle/family

Well, Nemezis used to be my username in some stupid online game. I used it almost everywhere. However, I decided to change it to Nemeshisu for few reasons:
1. We are not allowed to have similiar usernames to what we have on other sites, so I did change it a bit for safety
2. I changed it a bit because I wanted to turn it into a Onomatopeia that imitates a sound of crying. You know ,,shi, shi" sounds like sound of crying in Japanese Language. I am in a lot of pain right now. And as i child I used to cry when I was in a lot of pain. It calmed me down. I think crying can be very enjoyable. However it does not solve any of my problems. So I am just crying unable to do anything with my life. Just crying and hoping it could turn out to be better. It never does.

(Apologies if this posts twice, my browser hiccuped.)
From the song "On Some Faraway Beach" by Brian Eno.

Given the chance
I'll die like a baby
On some faraway beach
When the season's over.

Unlikely
I'll be remembered
As the tide brushes sand in my eyes
I'll drift away.

Cast up on a plateau
With only one memory
A single syllable
Oh lie low lie low.

I chose my user name because I have a black poppet. A poppet is a hand made doll that pagans/ witches keep for protection. My black poppet helps and protects me. He has a little dagger sewn on to his hand. I have a selection of poppets in varying colours symbolizing the level of protection i need on any given day. They are assigned to me and only me. No one can touch them unless I give express permission. I bought them in a Wiccan store. The black poppet is reactive. The longer it stays with me, the more protected I am.

I opened Pandora's box and now I'm here.

Thank you for sharing this! I thought it was a reference to Schröedinger's cat, the mere mention of which always puts me in a mood. Not that I'm happy because of the motivation for your name, now I have compassion when I see it instead of "that f*cking cat again"! :hug:

That's actually really fascinating. I've never heard of these. I have a friend that might be interested in attaining one of these.
