What's the meaning of your screen name?
Do you think that you are generally an optimist or a pessimist?
Do you have siblings, and/or children?
I commercial fished for 6 years on boats ranging from 32' to 61' long for up to 2 weeks at a time in the Gulf of Mexico. It is very dangerous and many friends were lost over the years.
The Perfect Storm is about fishermen who stopped by twice a year in our little fishing village on their travels up and down the Gulf Stream fishing for swordfish. We shared many a beer over the years.
The No Name Storm (a different storm) came up very fast and killed a bunch of people. It was called the No Name Storm because it came up so fast, killed so many, and ended before it could ever be named. When I cried for my friends, my Mom said, "Now you know how I feel every time you go out there."
I think I came up with Zhizara when I first joined DC back in 2008. I wanted to join and it asked for a screen name, so I made up the most exotic name I could and it wasn't already taken. I have since completed the name as Zhizara Zoe Zhizarazoz!
I've always been an optomist, but I'm trying to be a pessimist. A pessimist can be happily surprised by an outcome. As an optomist you are often disappointed. I'd rather be happily surprised them disappointed.
I am an only child. My daughter is in her 30s with a 17 y/o teenager of her own. They live in Georgia so we don't see each other much, but stay in touch by email. I had a son, but he died just before turning 22.
