Hello Saranac Lake. We're not so far. How are the betta selling stores near you?

Nassau County? I'm from Suffolk County.

My dad lives in Freeport and my grandmother lived in hicksville. However my mom decided to rent out that house I'm originally from Ozone Park, Queens.

I'll be on LI this weekend to visit my dad. My boyfriend had this thing for visiting the museaum of modern art - so we shall be venturing into manhattan. I have mixed feelings about this. I always went when I lived in NYC with my best friend but that was like 25 years ago. But this time, I have to be the tour guide and I'm kinda nervous about not getting lost via public transportation.

Did you now? I love it here and am continuing for grad school. Are you serious about Alaska? I knew someone from Alaska who every semester went to a different school and Plattsburgh was one o her first. She's been all over the world now.

How long ago were you here?
I was a sophmore there in 1998-1999. I lived in Whitehall or was it Whiteface? It is one of the dorms connected by a tunnel to some other dorms and a dinning hall. I didn't care for it because it seemed to be too much of a party school and I am not a big fan of frats and sorities. They were always getting in trouble for one stupid thing or another.
Anyways, I decided to do the National Student Exchange for one year and was planning to go back to Plattsburgh and live off campus with a friend. However, I met someone and ended up not only transfering into the University of Alaska the following year with an instate tuition rate.

12 years later....

I finally left Alaska in January - with dog, chinchilla and 23 bettas. Only 2 fishies made it If the window wasnt stuck open in the back seat for hours in the yukon, i think most would of made the trip. I ended up having to hold the survivors in a small pet carrier thing, on my lap for 10 days. At the few hotels we stayed out, I did water changes and then back in their cups they went.

Mutts and Butts?? Love the name but I never heard of it before.
I think im gonna have to go go find it now

I dont think I have been to the MOMA before. I;ve been to the MET twice. I'd rather go to non art museaums.

Whiteface? That's your problem right there. Its known for being a party building because it is strictly freshmen and generally, all-freshman buildings are usually populated with those who don't know how to act once mommy and daddy aren't around. Not everyone, of course, but usually those who are sensible move out before the end of the year or make sure to live in the substance free building next time.

The frats are still annoying but so is the same for every university nowadays. I never had time for bull**** like that. I love living up here now, off campus. Even wit the right people, on campus was okay.
