Smile Tell me about yourselves

I'd like to get to know everyone a little better. Do you have any other hobbies besides fish keeping? Do you have any other pets? What's your favorite thing to do? What's your favorite food, sport, color, anything? Do you have children? Do you wish to have children? What do you do/want to do for a living?

Just tell me absolutely anything about yourself!

As for me, I am seventeen years old. I'm 5'3. I adore most animals (excepts bugs, really can't stand gooey, spiky annoying things.) I have two dogs, a cat, two bettas, birds, mice, and a snake. I'm going to be a veterinarian when I'm older, and I'm working on that. Taking animal care specialist classes, (getting ready for college), and work at a vet hospital. My very first fish was a betta and as much as I like other fish I can only see myself keeping these. They're the only fish I haven't gotten bored of after 10+ years. My brother has a goldfish pond with monsters. It's hard to believe they were formerly half inch babies he got about five years ago. I'm a "nerd," haha. I love to read, I like to write essays for class, and I love English, history, and science. (however, I dislike math.) I like food. I can and will eat a lot, but I'm very thin. :( (oh, how I wish I could gain weight.) My friends say if it weren't for my genes I'd be the size of an elephant. lol I'd rather watch sports then play them but I like to go swimming. hmm... I have a habit of collecting nail polish and I forget what else to say. Your turn!

I love threads like these :) Im 17, im 4'10 and i live in Texas! I love watersports like wakeboarding, but its so freaking hot right now that the lake dried up to the point where they wont let anyone take their boats out on it. Im a nerd, all my friends are guys and ive dated most of them... lol. i like to play video games, when i grow up i wanna be a doctor. I love mexican food but im asian and i dislike rice. When i was like 5 i had a betta fish that i unknowingly abused, and i still wonder how it lived so long. Im always on aquabid looking for new bettas and i really really want to breed them but havent got the time, supplies, or anything to do with the fry.
Yep. thats me. hyperactive, super random me :)

Well my real name is Jon, I'm gay, 6'3", and 29. That out of the way I live in Virginia, obviously you could just check locale under my username. :)

I am an absolute sucker for fish, animals, and reptiles they're all just soooo cute!! I don't like sports, though I do follow the capitals hockey team. I like games of all sorts but mostly the video type. I also collect guns, and shoot them (just not very well). I love cooking and am very good at it, but especially baking. Oh and I am a huge fan of tea!

I am also a little eccentric, having a few superstitions and a fascination with the occult. And while I used to practice magick I don't much anymore unless it's necessary as it puts quite a strain on the body/spirit and takes a toll on my energy.

I'm Teresa and I've been a member of this forum for 4 years and I've been a mod for 3 years. I've been keeping bettas for 7 years. Currently I have 9 bettas. I don't have any other pets. I'm 50 years old and live with my 79 year old mother who does not like animals. I have 2 college degrees, an AA in education and a BA in psychology. I like to crochet and read and play games on my Kindle. I'm not too much of a cook and the only thing I'm good at making is Mexican food. I've been to Germany, France, Spain, Japan and Mexico. The foods I like best are Mexican, Chinese, Thai, German, Japanese and Italian. I think that about covers it.

cjconcepcion- I can't date my gay friends since most of them are gay, lol. Surprisingly it hasn't gotten very hot here. Yay for nerds! haha I wish I could buy bettas off of AB but my dad doesn't want me to have another tank, nor would he allow me to pay over 30 bucks for a fish. :(

I suck at video games lol I always try and die a million times, or fail whatever it is I'm supposed to do.

thekinetic- 6'3? Who invented tall people? Not fair :( just kidding, hahaha. I love baking and tea! Though most of the time I get too lazy to make cake from scratch so I use those just add eggs and milk/water mixes. :D You practiced magic? That's amazing. I love to find out random things about people like that.

dramaqueen- Ahhh! Italian food is the best! That's because I love cheese and garlic-y stuff. I'm not a great cook. I just like to bake stuff. My mom is always saying "when I was your age, I was already cooking for the family!" That's probably the only reason I started to cook. That and I realized if my parents weren't home I'd probably starve. lol I've been to Germany, France, and El Salvador. I'd love to visit Spain and Japan!

I've never been to Weinerschnitzel, but the commercials on tv have always intrigued me, haha. I visited Germany last summer for a couple months. It is really clean! The house I stayed at had the first floor underground. I don't know how to explain it, but when you walked in the front door you were upstairs. It wasn't completely buried like a basement, though. From the back it was underground but from the front of the house you could see it and it had windows. I just thought it was odd that the kitchen was upstairs. lol
