Hi, my name is Mekala! my username on here is Pastel(name of my most recent betta and the one in my avatar). I am 25 and turn 26 in February. I live in Amarillo, TX and have lived here for 20 years, but have lived in Gainesville, FL for a year and Portland, OR for a few months as well as Vancouver, WA and Wichita, KS for a short time when I was little. I visit my bf of 2 1/2 years in Tacoma, WA and hope to move back there soon with him again.
My hobbies include outdoor things, like camping, hunting, fishing, bird watching etc. I enjoy cruising around, looking at classic cars, taxidermy, medical studies, animal studies, art, knitting, comic books.
At the moment I am an Art Director and Illustrator for a sci fi novel that is being turned into an audio book. My bf got me the job and he's their audio engineer working on it as well.
I'm a loyal friend and a good listener, even if sometimes I talk in metaphors. I'm rather introverted and rather enjoy keeping to myself when I'm around new people, but am always open to chat. I have lived with a few medical issues in the past(some still burden me), but try to keep them from keeping me down.
I don't consider myself a good artist(then again what artist's do?), but I might do some art on here from time to time.
I hope to learn more about bettas as well as other things from people on here :D and I hope to help where I can as well.
