Hahahaha, yeaaa. I know it was a bad idea. I was planning on getting a betta AFTER my holiday break, but I walked into Petco to get supplies, looked at their bettas and fell in love with my boy. Plus, this is my first year at college, so I didn't know anyone who had a car that I could carpool with. But he's pretty much staying in my room until summer vacation (not bringing him home for spring break even though I found someone to carpool with).
That's the same with our college but we have international students (probably like you do) and some who cannot or don't want to go home. Although you may think no one is there, trust me there is probably an RA or two there working. And you didn't I was just saying that I'm always so worried about leaving that I plan way ahead (or try to lol)
And I understand completely I recently bought all my girls roughly around the same time (I just loved them all!) and I do have the means to provide them all with homes separately so I don't feel TOO bad. The only thing is that I also have a horse (well two but only one with me at college since I cannot afford both of them here) so ill also have to worry about getting him to a new barn AND my other one (who lives literally the completely opposite direction from the new barn :( ).but anywho lol
