Meet Frazzle!

No idea why I used Frazzle as my screen name XD

Hi, I'm Travis, I'm 20 years old and I live in Hershey, PA (yes... the chocolate place). I see myself as a nice guy. Im easy to talk to, i listen, and i will never walk away from a friend, no matter how close. I'm also a very giving person. I hit the lottery twice for 1000, and once saw a little kid ask his mom for a bike at walmart, but she said "we can't afford it" so I asked her if she would get it for him if she had the money, and after she said yes, i handed her over $100 and watched as her eyes teared up. I have an amazing girl that I have been with for 4 years now, and I can say that I truly love her. I work at Ingram Micro, where we ship out probably more then 60% of all Apple products. I hate it.

Some of my interests are cars, art, tim burton, music, and animals. I first got into cars when I was young. My entire family had old classic american cars, and I thought they were cool... until 11th grade when i got a honda civic, now im 100% honda. After I graduated I attended Berks Technical Institute for graphic design, and while i was really good at it, it wasnt my calling, and after payments were becoming too much, I ultimatly had to withdraw. Back in may I went to petsmart to look at the cats they had for adoption, and my eyes wandered over to the betta fish... where I saw Frazzlez. A bright red CT, I quickly snatched up a 2.5, heater, thermometer, conditioner, food, and Frazzlez and spent $104. Since then, I have added 2 more tanks, and two more bettas, Oogie and Blackbeard.

I get very emotional when I see a Rottweiler. My mom and step-dad were going through a divorce, and one day I came home from school and i noticed that my best friend was gone. My step-dad took him from me, and even though its been 3 years, I can't hold a single tear back when I think of him. I've since learned he became violent and has been put down... I never got to say goodbye to him


yeah thats a little about me

Hey Travis! Nice to meet you! Wow that was so very nice of you. You made that kids day, week heck maybe year. :) I'm so sorry you did not get to say goodbye to him but I'm sure he knew how much you cared and still do. *hugs* Oh my yes a betta can steal your heart! They have so much personality it is not hard to give them a home and pay a lot for it. lol! I splurged on my betta supplies and hope to get a few more in the future of course. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Thanks for sharing! :)

Hello, and Welcome Travis:) Yes, that betta bug bites hard, we all become addicted..lol..doesn't take long to add to the betta family..

I am currently up to 5-4 of which are rescues..but it all started with our first fish, Sammy, that my 10 yr old daughter picked out, after that..I got hooked..lol..and each and everyone is different, and unique in thier own way..we have 3 boys, 2 VT's and a HMDT, and 2 girls..:)

btw..that was soo nice of you to help that mom out, I know as a single parent what those struggles are like..it's very hard to ask for anything, and so appreciated when given:) (just had to share that)
