I'm a third year Early Childhood Education/ Special Education dual. Still unsure if that's what I want to do LOL
I think the dorms allow 5 gallons max, though most people I see buying bettas for their dorm get tiny bowls.
That's a great field to get into. The special ed teachers at my school were always the nicest people :) And yeah, I went into the LFS looking for some ghost shrimp (what kind of fish store doesn't carry ghost shrimp?) and decided to look at their bettas. They had two left. I asked what was up with their skimpy selection and one of the girls (family-owned) told me, "Oh, all the sorority girls get them. We're almost sold out of those (indicates tiny half gallon bowls that come with dividers)
Those poor fish :(
This year when I'm trying to avoid doing a paper: Er... Well, I have... Oh, wait! No homework in that class... But there's that--er... Never mind, already finished. But there's...! Crap. No more excuses... Guess I'll just spin around in my chair for a bit...
As a music major I ALWAYS had stuff to do. Now? I'm not doing much of anything. Guess it gives me more time to stare at my fish?
Me: "Hmm, genetics exam next week, two chem labs due on Wednesday, a speech to give on Tuesday, and... oh my, look how dirty my room is! Why, I just cleaned it yesterday! And my tank! Oh my word, my poor fish are living in FILTH! How could I DO THIS TO THEM?"
Alternatively: "Reddit Reddit Reddit Facebook Reddit Bettafish.com!"
Oh yeah, my major is computer engineering. (I am obv trying to kill myself by having this major Lololol)
Eww, engineering! Started out as a chemical engineer, and I have no idea why... I was destined for marine biology...
Me at age 9 with my science fair project on bioluminescent abyssal fish and invertebrates.
The official title of my major if/when I transfer to the 4 year University (to finish my Bachelors) will be a BS in Biology with a concentration in Environmental and Conservation Biology. (A Wildlife Biologist basically)
...I AM forbidden anymore animals right now though by the BF :P
Worked with a lady this summer who majored wildlife biology and just got her master's at the lab we worked at (it's university affiliated) in some sort of marine field. She really loved her undergrad work. Keep on keepin' on; it'll be worth it (I hope!)
Also, laaaame. My boyfriend already knows that when we move in and get established, I have a goal of a biotope from all corners of the world, plus a cichlid tank (African AND American), plus a riparium, plus a reef tank, plus a native saltwater biotope, plus... he said all that is fine, just as long as he can have a jellyfish tank. Which is okay, cause that was one of my wants, too. Of course, I've never paid a power bill; I'll probably be a lot less wanting of all of these neat things once I start paying to heat them
5th year of college because I suck and can't settle on a major.
Started in Environmental Science, with a focus on water quality, but switched after I found out I'm number dyslexic and canNOT do math to save my life, even though I understand how to solve the problems.
Tried Anthropology, did well in that until last semester when I got sick and ended flunking out because I couldn't keep up with the work because of it.
College is brutal
The one time I live in a dorm we weren't allowed any pets AT ALL, including fish.
(But I secretly kept one in my closet ;) )
Ooooh, I'm telling the RA... :P Honestly though, why not a small tank? Unless they had carpeted floors or something... ha... a dorm with carpeted floors...
I am too young for college.
Enjoy secondary school while you can! Higher education is fun, but a lot harder, and work is boring if you're not in the right field.
