Hahaha there's no elaborate or meaning behind my username. I'm sorry, but I loved hearing why each of you chose your own(:
I named mine after Serafina Pekkala, a witch from the book The Golden Compass . She's described as beautiful, powerful (but not all-powerful), brave, wise, strange, and alone. She's a character I would like to be!

ooh Serafina, I really like your name! Is the Golden Compass one of your favorite books?
The story behind my username is that i just love the outdoors! Well during every spring except summer! Summer is just to hot to go hiking and getting FRESH air.. LOL i do love the fact that we are able to swim in a lake during the summer! I love exploring the wilderness and its wonders!
There really is no story, i always chose katiekins98 but i wanted something new and different so it just poped into mind. The 14 is my lucky number though.
the story of mine is that when I bleached my hair to platinum blonde everyone said that I looked like a barbie and I felt shattered inside from my depression and other issues so I thought up shatteredbarbie.
The story behind my username is much... Not from a book or quote or anything special.. Evanescence had a song called Free Fall. But that's not why I chose this name. I would have down Everybody'sFool95 if I did it after a song.. But my story has a deeper meaning.. When something good finally happens in my life... I already know its going to take a turn for the worst, get shot down from the sky a free fall in a downwards spiral to earth only to shatter in a million pieces... But, Right now something good is happening and I'm afraid it's going to take a wrong turn and jump off of the top of K2 and free fall to its icy grave... So.. I'm Free-Faller95 (95 because its my birth year xD) not much of a story... =/
showing love to all of the youth breaking away into this forum (: i'm so happy to be a part of this lovely place.. YOU EMPOWER ME TO KEEP YOUTH VOICE STRONG AND BRING CLARITY TO MY PATH:p

It had always been difficult for me to see things through the eyes of optimism... I make a living off of being pessimistic.. If I'm negative about something, it comes out with a positive outcome. But, when I attempt to be optimistic, I end up either shattered and in tears or just another person that hates me. It's just how my life is. xD
Hey there, Free-Faller95. I know things can be tough sometimes and seem like there is a slim chance that something good will happen from thinking positively. However, I can tell you from personal experience that positive thinking really does change things. Instead of focusing on the negative, perhaps you should try looking at things from a neutral perspective - not everything is always so black and white! This fact sheet elaborates more on what I'm talking about: http://us.reachout.com/facts/factshe...hinking-errors
Remember, this forum is to offer encouragement and provide alternative solutions to various issues you might experience. I know things can seem tough, but it's important to hang in there.
The story behind my name is that eveyone thinks alice is crazy and there really is no wonderland, and i know somewhere there is a wonderland and people think im "mentally unstable" just like alice! plus, im proof that every princess isent perfect!
Mine is from John Lennon's "Imagine" ... I love the Beatles so much!! also, I'm an artist and I cannot stop myself from daydreaming which tends to be a problem since I always get my hopes and expectations up and they always end up shattered...so I guess this is the best representative of my spirit which is filled with hope, disappointment, and shattered dreams
My username is inspired by a number of things.
I am a legit gamer when I play video games and I complete hard tasks so Lemon Gummi = Lg __ Legit Gamer = Lg
also portal 2 could not have said it any better! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7mt8I6cvFsM
I also feel that lemons are underrated and hated amongst the fruit. Sort of like me!
People are bitter towards me all my life. Even though I am sweet.
Lemon = bitter Sweet = Gummi (like candy)
Also I like how it sounded, and how unique it is.
Susie RO Admin,
Not a day goes by that I wish people like you are not myths.
It seems like a fantasy whenever I am complimented....
also thanks for your kindness, I appreciate it!
