Hello From San Diego!!

So I'm really bored/stressing about things/ trying to get my mind off stuff, so I figured I'd make an intro! I've been lurking this site for a long while, made an account, posted some rabble and questions, but now I'm trying to be more productive and helpful as I become more experienced in the realm of fishkeeping. I have 4 bettas, a goldfish, and some African cichlids and oddballs. I love them all and they make me so happy One of my bettas is a petco baby who is well on his way to a happy adulthood.
I live in San Diego, California, and I love it here. I am a complete socal kid and people from other parts of the US may have trouble understanding me, but not in writing. Also, I LOVE writing! I have a tumblr in which I write about my experiences in lengthy yet well written posts, and occasionally post cool pictures. It's appropriate for all ages and it's not melodramatic teenager stuff. If people want to read it I'll link it.
I thought I'd also include a picture!

Welcome! First of all, I must say I'm very envious of you for living in S.D. My fav place! I have a 13 year old daughter who loves to write too (no interest in fish though)

If you like to write, you should check out a site for kids, where my daughter posts and writes etc. Books, Stories, Writing Contests and Publishing for Kids | KidPub Press. My kiddo loves it!

There is a small membership fee - can't remember what it is $15/year?, but check it out and see if you may like it.

Thanks for the link Gwen! I'll definitely check it out.

my language may not be 100% bettafish.com appropriate but it's not terrible.

yeah, I kind of regret making a tumblr but it's great for writing! I just keep linking it everywhere cause I really love opinions on my writing and if I kept people interested. XD I'm just a junior in high school but I am addicted to so many online things!
