Talking A few months too late

Anyways, I thought I'd introduce myself properly, instead of leaving things to you to find out.

I am Al (not really, but it's just a nickname I've been using onliine for years). I am a female, and am currently 19, going on 20 in February.

I live in New York. For the first 8 years of my life, I lived in Queens, the next 8 were in Staten Island, and in the last 2-3 years, I've been living upstate. The city is my home and i plan on moving back once I can afford a house with land.

I have 3 siblings, a 17 year old sister, a 11 year old sister, and a 11 month old (going to be a year old on August 27th) brother.

I have a few pets, considering our large household.
We have a family dog, who is a 10 year old Akita INU-(not a regular akita, the two are very different), Shiba Inu-Chow mix. She is our little aggressive teddy bear in that she is calm with the family, but extremely aggressive towards strangers. I also have MY dog who is a 4 year old maltese who also has aggression issues, but has managed to put them on the side as he gets along VERY well with my brother. When I move out, he will come with me since he has separation anxiety.
I also have two parakeets, Tweety and Prince. Both were labeled as "rare parakeets" for their colors are not what you'd normally see in a pet store. They are extremely dirty and obnoxiously loud, and I wouldn't recomend them to anyone who doesn't want to be up with the sun xD
Lastly, there are my two bettas who live with me and go where ever I go- Buddha and Pudge.

I am easy going person, but that's only because I hide a lot inside. It only comes out in extremely stressful situations, and so far this summer, that's all I feel it's been. I've been using BF as a crutch to help me through this summer, and I have to say its been helping a LOT. Getting Pudge was also another great thing to happen to me because it showed my parents that I was able to make the necessary steps to prepare for another pet, whether it was financially or just storage wise.

I return to college in a week, and I might not be on as much, but I don't want to just become a nameless face that people will forget if I disappear. So that's me in a nutshell!

For funzies, I do Q and A's whenever I join a new site, so ask away if you want ^^

Baby Buddha(M VT) ~ Oddball (M-DeTxHM)~ Little Chai ~ Lucky(F oto)

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops

College will take up much of your time, but you may be able to come to the forum every once in awhile so people won't forget you.

NY is wonderful. I don't ever see myself leaving the state until the temporary time when I want to own a wolf hybrid. They're illegal in NY so I might go on a few years vacation elsewhere to have one of them. :)

And I'm currently taking my 3rd semester of Japanese, as well as two business classes and a astronomy class :D

And yup yup I do! sending it now :D
