July 3rd, 2010 was the day I joined this large yet growing community. I was 9 years old back then. Now, I've been growing up and I'm 13. The origin of this forum has been really interesting. I remember back then, I simply just posted pictures of bettas and now, I'm doing better, I guess. I still come by now and then and I'm still fascinated by newbies. They are so hilarious. (not in a bad way...) I remember there was this one time I fed my betta some graphite (pencil "lead") and it died the next day. I was SO stupid... so tell me, how did you feel when you joined this forum? Also, feel free to join my quiet personal forum, iceshards.prophpbb.com.
