I'm Midelaye (or Mya for short), the soon-to-be-betta-owning Canadian university girl. I joined this forum yesterday in hopes of finding out more about getting a betta for my dorm room, and I found an amazing community. Like many of you I am a loving pet owner, and I'm going to school for animal biology and (hopefully) veterinary medicine.
A bit about me. I own a black and white moggie called Panda (whom I did not name), I ride a chestnut thoroughbred called Sparks (I also did not name him) and have a couple of skulls named Dantallion (Dante) and Hamlet (whom I did name). Okay, I know the skulls don't really count, but sometimes I talk to them like they're my pets (by the way, I found them in a farm field and though they were cool because I'm a medical student, for anyone who is worried about why I own skulls or how I obtained them). I'm also an artist, and have particular interest in the Renaissance and Neoclassical periods. Below is a quick drawing I did for Indigo Betta yesterday (first drawing of a betta, woot!).
I'm also a complete cinephile and tv-aholic. I'm addicted to the shows Supernatural, Sherlock, The Newsroom, Game of Thrones, Face Off, Grey's Anatomy, House and Hannibal. I never shut up about movies and have a particular affinity for psych thrillers with a twist. Some of my favourites are Fight Club, Django Unchained, Lucky Number Slevin, The Dark Knight and Silver Linings Playbook.
I also like baking, making chainmail, occasionally writing, often reading and for some unfathomable reason I'm really good at laser quest and go karting. Nice to meet you! Feel free to ask questions. :)
