Hello everyone, I have lived on the east cost for 98% of my life and I would have it no other way. I love living by the oceanfront. Friends tease me about how much of my time I spend just sitting on the boardwalk watching the ocean and daydreaming. I am currently in a community college and I hope to someday (probably in the year 2357) graduate with an education degree. My favorite class?....Oceanography of course. My favorite subject?....Deep sea mysteries! Action, adventure, and lots and lots of unknown creatures! The other 2% of my life I have spent traveling, throughout the US and I've spent some out of the country. Of 1yr in my life I had lived in Wanette, Oklahoma to help out family (not because I felt I needed to live away from water). I eventually got oceanfront-sick (if there is such a term) and rushed back here to Virginia Beach. The only interesting thing I've learned in Oklahoma is that they have a law that prohibits whaleing....just incase any whale decided get out and walk all the way to the Oklahoma State Line YOU'RE NOT ALOUD TO KILL IT!!!! I had found Tonmo when I was doing research for a paper on the Architeuthis dux for a class and knew I'd love to sign up right away. I love reading about other people's thoughts and experiences with cephalopods. Just knowing that there are other people with such deep interests as I do, makes me feel right at home!
