Crazy College Kid

I have taken it upon myself to start getting into breeding snakes! A quick bio on the past year...
I have currently spent $2600 on reptiles and housing.
Last week I acquired 18 ball pythons of various morphs. No normals apart from two proven adult het females.
I also acquired 2 young carmel jag carpet pythons on the same day as the BPs.
My first clutch ever was produced recently (Florida Kingsnakes) and babies are currently available.
I'm a full time college student, part time employee, keeper of 40 snakes, and also a dog, cat, 3 koi bettas, a beaded lizard, and a 20 gallon fish tank.

Some call my crazy. But I guess they are right. I tend to juggle things well and am enjoying life. On my down time I try to go herping when I get the chance. There's a huge abundance of salamanders where I'm at and they are relatively easy to find in the winter and garter snakes galore in the summer.
Anyone else out there with a lot on their plate but enjoying it all?

Re: Crazy College Kid

I also had a substantial herp collection when I was in college. Between work, school, and the herps, I had time for little else. Not sure I would do it that way again.
I hate to sound like a parent, but don't let you education suffer on the account of the herps. Don't let them suffer either, of course.
But, there's something to be said for ambition, and I envy you for that. Good luck.

I won't! I enjoy it a lot but my animal obsession is kinda why I'm a Zoology major. And since I was young I've always been the animal caretaker of my home so I'm good at not letting the stress of monitoring animals get in the way. Even my job deals with animals as I'm a dog trainer.
Now I was a valedictorian in high school but my grades do suffer a bit here and it's because of work hours. College towns are so expensive to live in (and even if I got rid of all my animals) I can't afford a home on or off campus without a job even with my financial aid. The place wouldn't give me any special scholarships so it's a struggle. But with my job I'm comfortably affording things and passing classes still with moderate effort.
