Saudade

Saudade

Longing for a person that is absent

My name's meaning for this forum is:

Saudade (English: /saʊˈdɑːdə/,[1] European Portuguese: [sɐwˈðaðɨ], Galician: [sawˈðaðɪ]; plural saudades)[2] is an emotional state of melancholic or profoundly nostalgic longing for a beloved yet absent something or someone. It is often associated with a repressed understanding that one might never encounter the recipient of longing ever again. It is a recollection of feelings, experiences, places, or events— often illusive —[citation needed]​ that cause a sense of separation from the exciting, pleasant, or joyous sensations they once caused. It derives from the Latin word for solitude.[3]

Nascimento and Meandro (2005)[4] cite Duarte Nunes Leão's definition of saudade: "Memory of something with a desire for it."

In Brazil, the day of Saudade is officially celebrated on 30 January.[5][6] It is not a widely acknowledged day in Portugal.

I like legend of Zelda, and spider link referring to spider man and link. It's an odd name because I want mine to be unique that I never used before, so others don't find out I'm on this site

I love your username! My favorite word of all times. Have you heard "Onde anda você", by Toquinho and Vinicius de Moraes? It's a great song about "saudade".

Mine is basically the initials of my name and surnames.
The profile gif is Angelina Jolie playing Lisa in "Girl, interrupted". I identify with her character.

I chose the name the FireFox because I love foxes and I love fires. I am NOT a pyromanic. I just love the colours of fires especially volcano eruptions. I know it sounds crazy but I am eccentric like that.

My pfp is from my favorite manga, "My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness" by Kabi Nagata. I used catastrophix since I see my mental health as catastrophic, and also because my "Internet name" is Xanni, so that's why added the X at the end.

I'm not sure how to explain how I came up with my username tbh. In general, I guess 'HarmonicScreams' is an expression of pain in myself and in the world. I feel like life is suffering of many kinds, and together we are crying out for salvation - whatever you think that may be. In my opinion, the worst kind of suffering are one's which we can't understand or share. Hence it is my desire to find others that feel the same as me, and find some kind of harmony in this world.
Idk, I am kinda just rambling.

Corazon is spanish for "heart" (I'm not spanish tho lol). But it's also the name of one of favourite characters from One Piece.
I love fluffy ducklings and I just love the way this one looks at the camera. Kinda random but so am I.
