Re: Gush about your special interests!

Thats so cool @Saltwaterdreamtime, I got that feel when I started my music degree! Its great to have a passion that just, yaknow, makes you feel something special! Idk how to describe it, but that never looking back thing? That's a big mood (though I'm not a surfer, I've tried once and decided never to do it again cause I'm awful at it Smiley LOL )

Re: Gush about your special interests!

Sometimes something reminds why Phil Chevron is my favourite Pogue, and today it was remembering that in his will, he bequeathed his guitars to music students at Mountjoy Prison, and its just so comforting to know he was thinking about what he could do for others, even at the point of his death.

 

Man, I really love Phil Chevron, he's really inspiring to me.

I just wanted to share that my favourite show ever (The 100) is coming out with a new season in a month!!!!!! I'm super excited because the trailer looks amazing and also it looks like it has a lot of parallels with Season 2, one of the best and most impactful seasons which changed the characters the most and made them into who they are now imo. There's also going to be a major story line about Clarke's adopted daughter (Madi) which is exciting! I can't stop watching the trailer Smiley LOL

This is the promotional poster for it:

I forgot about this thread!!

 

My current SI/ hyperfixation is fish. I've managed to "scam" my parents into getting me an aquarium for my birthday, and I'm so excited for when I get to have fish in there!!!

 

My favorite family are gouramis.

They range from almost the length of my arm to less than the length of my finger. I love them.

Plus most gourami species have the cute lil "feeler" fins that you can see in the last picture.

Re: Gush about your special interests!

@Tiny_leafcongrats on getting an aquarium for your birthday! I hope you enjoy it! Are you planning on getting those gourami species fish? They look very pretty! And are you planning on getting any other types of fish? I really like the black ghost knife fish for freshwater tanks, they look really cool ~

@drpenguin I'm going to get a betta - they're in the same family.

 

I'd love one of the wild-type ones because they're shiny:

But they can cost nearly $100 dollars for the more expensive ones, so unless someone's selling them really cheap I'll probably get a more traditional guy like this:

Re: Gush about your special interests!

@Tiny_leaf Wow! That betta looks so beautiful ~ it definitely seems like it's been selectively bred for that kind of sheen and pretty colour, so i understand why it can be so expensive Smiley Surprised The traditional bettas are also really nice too ~ Definitely show me pics of your new aquarium and the fish when you get it!

Re: Gush about your special interests!

@drpenguin they're actually closer to the wild version of the fish. He's a non-domesticated fishy in the same genus:
