Hello, I'm Brittany. (:

Post  Brittany on Tue Aug 25, 2009 2:36 am

Hello everyone! I'm Brittany and I'm 16 years of age residing in Virginia, US. So, obviously I'm a huge Gina fan and have been since 2007, when I first saw her on the reality show "Fight Girls." But, I have been a fan of MMA in general since 2004, when I saw Chuck Liddell vs. Tito Ortiz at UFC 47 and I have been hooked ever since.
Back in July of '08 I began training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, but had to put my training on hold in December of '08 due to financial problems; but I am hoping that I will be able to go back this winter. I do, however, have a heavy bag in my garage and I work on my striking almost daily. I began training in the sport because of Gina, she influenced me a great deal. Because when you are born are girl within the Mason Dixie line, you are told that women should stay at home and tend to the house and children. I don't believe that and I pay the prices for that. I just hope that the sport continues to grow for women, all over the world, not just in the United States.

On another note, here are some "fast facts" about myself. (x
My main loves in MMA are Gina Carano, Chuck Liddell, and Georges St. Pierre; but I do like many other fighters, as well.
I'm a huge music fan! The genres that I listen to mostly are Classic Rock, 80s Hair Bands, Rock/Alternative, and Heavy Metal. And my favorite bands are The Doors and Avenged Sevenfold.
I plan on going to college and majoring in Psychology and minoring in Communications.
I love creating graphics in Photoshop and making "tribute" videos in Sony Vegas.
Even though I participate in MMA, I still enjoy being a girl and doing girly things (just like Gina has said in the past).

Well that's all I have right now, but if you have any questions, I'll certainly answer.
I look forward to talking with you all and making this forum a huge success! (:

Welcome Brittany! A very nice introduction you have here. Very Happy

I have a question, and maybe it's a dumb one, but here it is anyway: What's Sony Vegas? A more decent question: What type of Psychology are you interested in specifically? I want to start studying too (even though I'm a little "old", LOL), and I'd like to do Developmental/child Psychology.

Thanks, glad you liked it. (:

Sony Vegas is a video editing program. I'll post I link, because that'll probably explain it better than I can. lol.

As far as what I want to study in Psychology, I'm not entirely sure yet. But I'm taking a class this year in school about Psychology as a whole, so I'm sure I'll figure it out once I finish the class. I am a bit interested in Child Pyschology, but I'm not sure yet. Aha.

Welcome, nice intro!

Psychology is very interesting, I hope you'll be able to study it. I wouldve taken it for my 6 month minor if it wasnt already full (300 people applying with 40 available seats)

Nice music taste as well Razz

Thank you. (:

Yes, Psychology seems popular. I almost wasn't able to take the class this year, but I got lucky, thankfully.

Ha, thanks. I'm glad you like the same music, I'm assuming. (x

Psychology as a whole is a fascinating subject - would be awesome to be able to study all aspects of it. It might take longer, but it will be worth it.

I want Sony Vegas, it looks so much better than the video editing programs I'm currently using. I've searched for it on our online stores, but it doesn't seem to be available in South Africa. Sad

If you want to study all aspects, I think you will need like two lifetimes.

Ive never used a video editing programme really, Id like to try it out sometime. So I might try to find that programme too Razz

And yeh, I like that music too. I like a lot of other kinds of music too, though

I guess it will take more than two lifetimes, you're right about that. You should try those video editing programs Bas, they're great especially when you're bored.

All the best Brit. Smile

Sorry for being M.I.A for awhile, I had some issues with my sites and also some family problems.

So, have either one of you been able to find the video editing program yet? It would suck if you haven't, because it's a very fun and creative program and a bit addicting too. I love it. (x

Welcome back. Smile

I haven't been able to, so I'll have to stick to the programs I currently use. I don't think it's available here, maybe one day.
