So....I don't think I've ever actually posted one of these before. xD Oh well, seems like a good a time as any to, well, re-introduce myself I suppose!
Since I don't think I've ever really formally introduced myself.....and for any new awesome people I've yet to meet 'round here...a quick little intro! My name is Jordan, I'm 21(will be 22 here in about a month....yikes! Time flies by so fast...), and I've been into fish and aquariums for about four and a half years seriously and bettas for about four years though I've had tanks here and there most of my life. Besides my lovely finned babies I currently have an eight month old Yorkie/Maltese mix named Tilly and a three year old Temper Albino female Leopard Gecko named Phoenix. I've moved around a lot, about 11 times, 12 houses, and four states throughout my entire life and currently I reside in Batavia, Illinois. Besides my aquariums I'm also really into anime/fandoms and cosplay, photography, writing, knitting/crocheting, and when I was younger I spent a few years horseback riding(English, Hunter/Jumpers to be precise) and I do miss it very, VERY much.
I've been kinda an off and on active member here for...oh geez, over four years now I think, just about around when I started more seriously getting into fish keeping. Life has pulled me away a couple of times here and there, most recently things got a little hectic after a new puppy came into the family around Christmas and I shortly after got quite sick and ended up going in for surgery a couple of months ago....but now recovered from that and things finally settling down and getting back on track slowly, I'm back! I've unfortunitly lost a few of my Bettas over the past several months to various causes and I've had to downgrade to make things easier for me to manage(and to make room for the Crested Gecko I hope to acquire here in a few months!), but I've still got nine of my guys, one I've even yet to introduce here! I'm working on getting together some updated pictures of a few of my boys, so keep an eye out for photoshoot threads!
Anywho, I can't wait to get back into the community again, I've really missed this place and everyone here! I've been lurking for the past few days to see whats been going on and I still recognize a lot of usernames, so hopefully you guys remember me! xD;
