I dont know if many of you from years gone by will remember me. I am sure a few do. I would hope. But members come and go and there are a lot of unfamiliar usernames here in the forum.
I joined when I was 11.. Well, I was a lurker. I didnt actually register until I was I think 12. First cp was a Nepenthes Spectabilis. It was the nep to have back in the day.. Second I grew was a drosophyllum. I remember begging for seeds on the trading post. Haha. I think Bonnie Dodds sent me some, from Alaska.. She still around here?
I dont think Ill talk about my past. I was a crazy kid. Addicted to artificial sweeteners
Lets see.. little update on me.. I still do CPs, not a lot, only a dozen or two down from some 300+ individual plants I had.. Well if you counted pygmies probably more like 500 haha. But they are small and easy to propagate. I probably had 1000 capensis.. But I dont count those a CP. Just a weed
I volunteer at the Monterey Bay Aquarium now. Which is fun. My dart frog collection passed when they got a pretty bad parasite infection. Which sucked. Maybe someday Ill start back up on those..
Right now my life IS lifting weights, running, swimming, and nutrition. I swim on the varsity team at a local HS. Call that medocre if you want, but whatever. Its what I like to do. Hope none of my old embarassing pictures of me are floating around here Anyone else work out?
BAM! haha. Cant rant on about working out without a muscle pic right
I like to listen to Metal
And sometimes I can be emo.. But thats why my friends love me! haha
My hair is getting long. Too long for andy. But I aint cutting it any time soon Actually I might do it just to get my swimming times down.. Ah well!
Allright. Allright.. So I posted that last picture just to annoy you andy. I know you dont like my long hair hahaha!
Training to join the Navy. I thought of being a scout sniper in the marines, since I know a few.. And also do HALO-HAHO. But I have a better chance for advancement in the Navy. I want to go SEALS, but at the same time I want to be an officer and be in the Med Corps.. Or maybe a SEALS officer. Hmm... Decisions, Decisions.. SEALS and S|Ss are pulling me in half trying to get me to do what they do. Any military people on here?
Right now I attend a local college. Books are rediculously expensive :| I think I just threw out $500+ on college books. Absolute waste. Well education isnt a waste. But its mighty expensive. But Ill get at least half back when the semester is over.. Hopefully.
I have a very tight schedule, so its hard to find time to get online anymore. But I hope to stay active. Id like to get a collection going again. Not so big that a plant just becomes a number.. But a few dozen individuals I can enjoy without many hours of matinence.
Yup. So yeah! Thats me.
Should be at BACPS selling raffle tickets in a few weeks. Look for me!
I might need a ride, though. Forbes goes by here on 101. Maybe I could hitch a ride up there? Take the bus back down.. Who knows. That would be chill.
So yea! Thanks Andy. Nice to be back on here!
