((hugs)) I take no offence Hun!! Highschool is crazy, not something most adults would want to relive. I was picked on most of my highschool years for being an animal lover, and you know what? Now a days, those same people are coming to me asking for help with poor animals they either own or feel sorry for and they seek out my help. It totally gets better.
And besides, if anyone says anything to you about being on a Bettafish forum, just act like it's not a big thing and they're weird for even thinking it's "nerdy". :)
