1. My username is nineveh_rains because for awhile I was going by the pseudonym "goddess of nineveh" which is too long for an LJ username, so I tried to think of something that would still express the feeling behind the name. For those of you who don't know, Nineveh is the city that God sent Jonah to preach to so that the people would turn from their wicked ways and be saved. So, the implication of my original pseudonym is that I am the "goddess of wickedness/evilness". For my username, I wanted something that sounded torrential - because this journal covers a lot of confusion and conflicting emotions - so I came up with "rains". I guess I could have thought of something better, like typhoons or something, but this suits.

2. My journal is titled "I'm not finished yet" because the whole point of this journal is to help me develop into a better person. I think the original title was "Beware of typhoons" or that may have been the subtitle, but that was to cover the torrential part that I wasn't able to fit into my name at the time. So, basically the title of my journal is to indicate that I am a work in progress.

3. My subtitle is "The child within" because it is something I read while doing work for therapy and I felt that it really applied.

4. My friends page is called "Normal like you" because I often think of the same song by Everclear. "tell me why/you wanna be blind/I don't wanna be/normal like you/I know now/everyday/I get closer to the place inside/where I can be normal to" I guess I don't really know how to explain this. Maybe it has to do with everyone having their own trials to deal with and just because we are all going through something different doesn't mean that we aren't the same.

5. My default userpic is the one I have up because it is dark and torrential like the theme of this journal. The userpic that I created is a sign pointing left that says "Lost". I use this picture when I am feeling particularly confused or... lost.

Okay, so my answers weren't that informative but I gave it a shot.
