    Heh, thanks.

    I was looking into Zookeeping, but the pay is too low in my area and/or the area where I want to work. Then I looked at something like Psycology (I could have therapy dogs ;)), but that's almost 12 years of school (plus 4 years of "actual college") and 8+ years of internships. Ouch. Thinking some type of Marine/Freshwater Biologist with a minor in Zookeeping. Then I could, if I wasn't able to find a job with my major, get a more-stable job at our local Zoo whilst looking somewhere else.

    Dead serious. :)

    And thatís an interesting choice for college. All I know that I want to do is something scienc-y and animal based. ETA: Iím still in HS so I donít get much choice on classes, lol. Right now I have things like Bio, World History, Geometry (as I suck at math so I canít be in Algebra II lol), and Art II/III

    (Apparently there's; a 1000 word limit to conversation messages...)
    I would *love* a mini zoo, but I'm sure there's city regulations as to how many pets I can own. I want a native stocked (Bluegills and Sunnies w/ minnows as a food source) pond (~2,000G), along with a Koi pond of some type. I want Button Quails, chickens, would *kill* for a Scarlet Macaw. Alligators are cool but I'm not comfertable working around them. Iguanas are sick, along with a huge outdoor 'aviary' for a herd of Guinea Pigs and/or rabbits. No snakes and/or spiders for me, though. Goats, horses, dogs, cows, and the other typical farm animals are on my 'need to own' list. Would love some exotic things, but most (eg. big cats) require too much of special handling for me.
    How about you? You mentioned going to a University, what career are you looking into?

    Haha, one of the nicknames for my real name is kinda close to Taylor. TFT simply stands for ThatFishThough. :) It's okay, I understand your joke. It took me like 30 minutes to wake up this morning. When I did, I thought it was Friday. Ended up jumping out of bed so fast that I nearly blacked out, then realized it was only Wednesday and mentally cried myself back to sleep. Of course, I had school in ~25 minutes, so I had to stay up and go lol.

    Mess and Moving start with the same letter for a reason! Boxes, boxes, boxes. Crazy. We've moved a couple of times that I could remember, but it was mostly my parents doing the moving. I remember, I would always run into the biggest room of the house (even if we hadn't bought it yet!) and declare it as my bedroom. I was a wild child. Lucky for my parents, I've pretty much mellowed out. :P

    Heh. As cool as it is, I happen to be female. :) I’d prefer not to post my real name on my public wall, but you can call me TFT (instead of typing it out) or “crazy fish lady” like many members do.

    Most of the stuff I do is in the summer; raising fry, grooming/walking/showing the cats, and working with Duncan. It takes time and money, though, so I’m hoping to downside from 15 tanks to 7 or 8. That’ll cut maintenance so I can focus on other things.

    Congrats on the new house! I can’t wait to move out. As much as I love my family, they drive me up the wall. Then they can’t tell me what pets I can or can’t have! LOL!

    Had to go and check what you meant, but no problem! :)

    I'm doing okay. School is wearing me out and we're only a week into the new semester... Fish are doing good but I'm lacking on maintenance. Planning on doing some water changes this week. Other pet wise, the gerbils need a clean-out, which can wait a while longer as their cage is so huge. The cats just got their nails trimmed and I'm trying to get better about grooming as they're longhaired, but they don't like any of the brushes or combs that I have. We just got the schedule for the show season, so I'm excited to lease Duncan (horse, sorry, I'm kinda scatterbrained and type as I think lol) again and get back to riding! He's so out of shape that it's going to be hard the first two months, but we'll get back to where we were.

    You probably weren't asking for a huge paragraph, but whatever. :) How are you?
