Oooh, if you go to NYC I can visit you because my older brother lives there. I don't know how the fees are in NYC, but here in CA they're apparently high enough to warrant frequent protests by the students. They lock themselves in buildings and that kind of thing. They did go a little far though when they vandalized the home of the dean of Cal State Berkeley.

In my opinion, colleges here are not just so expensive, they're TOO expensive. We push the whole need a college education thing and then make it so expensive most people can't afford it. Talk about hypocrisy.

Poor sister, I feel for her. The funny thing about being 5'2" and feeling short is I see so many people that I'm taller than so it's kind of weird. Three of my close family friends are all shorter than me. Granted, they're middle aged and at that point where people start shrinking, but still . . .

Haha, you do have a point, it sounds like your business alone would make it worth my while to move north. I dunno, do you really think an all-betta shop would actually work?
you should, lol. I can tell you which stores take semi-decent care of their bettas in the area :p lmao
there's one I know of that recently opened in minnesota that seems to be doing okay. they do have other fish besides just bettas, but bettas are their focus. Anbu made a post about it. think theirs are all imported, could probably save a few bucks if you had some you spawned yourself as well, lol

I just got Amethyst at PetCo. He's my second betta from that store. My betta Emerald I purchased there also. Goldie and Sapphire were purchased at the LFS.

Goldie - M Orange Crown-veil Tail
Amethyst - M Purple Cambodian VT
Emerald - M Green and Red DT
Sapphire - M Blue and Peach VT

Hmm. This warrants more thought. It would be an excuse to spawn bettas. I could put it down as a business expense . . . I'm beginning to like this idea.

Your Petco gets good stock, then. Purple is really hard to come by. You're really lucky, sunnydawnie.

OK now I'm scared D:
Yeah, I feel taller than a lot of people too. I have an aunt who is 4'7 or something.. I don't even see her sometimes :D I think 5'2 is a relatively average height.
Amethyst is such a pretty name :)

lol, I didn't even think about that part. you could probably put ab purchases that you kept for yourself as business expenses as well if you bred them :p

Fightergirl, you'll do fine over here. I'm not sure, maybe you qualify for special financial aid because you're an international student.

One of my aunts was shorter than me but only by an inch and only because she hunched over a lot.
