Hello from the Windy City! :)

Hello everyone! My name is Stephanie I'm 30 years old and I live in Chicago. I'm a new mommy to a very sweet betta named Raz. This is my first betta so I'm learning a lot to keep him healthy and happy. I am an organic vegetarian, wife, student who has two hilarious geckos named Jimmie and Daisy. I'm currently going to school to become an Occupational Therapist Assistant and I can't explain how really excited I am about this. At age 30 and going back to school was not easy amongst all these youngins but I am doing it with everything I have. I like to read *all types of genres*, cook, take pictures, collect vintage cameras, meditate, long walks, listening to records, driving with the windows open and letting my hair down to just dance. I would best describe myself as a fun loving hippie. LOL! I'm really happy to have found a great community such as this one with so many answers to all my betta questions. It's wonderful! Well thank you for sticking around to read this intro I know it was kinda long.

Welcome and congrats on your first betta. He's very handsome.

I tried to put my signature but the ink wouldn't go through my screen.

Hi Stephanie and welcome to the forum! We too sound like kindred spirits, though I'm a bit older lol. My daughter is 35 and just finished a year long LPN program, so you are far from too old to be going back to school..I commend you for it! Glad you joined us here!

Well hello there! Thank you for the warm welcome. I guess that saying is true you are only as old as you feel. I feel 28ish. LOL! Nice to know I have a few things in common with you lovely people. Oh Yay for your daughter! Good for her! That is a HUGE accomplishment and healthcare gained another amazing nurse. I truly admire nurses but I could never be one, lol. So my hat goes off to her. Awww thanks! I lost my job last year so I decided I should go back to school a do what I want. I'm very happy to me here. Thank you again. Have a wonderful weekend!
