Hi, my name is mimi

I suffer from a rare condition called Erythromelalgia. I’m currently studying clinical psychology with a placement year at  university. I have two bunnies and I love to cook and watch films

    Hi @mimipaxton - & welcome to this great community. Are you enjoying your psychology course? I hope it is going well. When my children were young, we had a lovely dwarf lop eared rabbit called Flopsy; now I have a little cat called Shadow.
    Please have a look around the forum, & join in with the discussions, or visit our virtual 'Coffee lounge,' where members talk about their pets, films, music, etc. & we play word games. :)

    Hey @mimipaxton
    I'm also new here, currently studying Politics and International Relations at uni. Cooking and watching films are also hobbies of mine. Though I tend to watch series more than films, a two hour commitment sounds like a lot to me even though I spend the same if not more time on tv shows! It doesn't make much sense.
    I have a cat at home called Mishka - who I really miss while I'm at my student house most of the year :blush:

    Hello and welcome to the community @mimipaxton :) It's great to have you here. 

    We had a rabbit called Smudge when I was growing up, so I've loved rabbits for a while. One of our other members started a thread on pets recently, so please feel free to comment on that and share some bunny cuteness! 

    Your degree sounds really interesting! Have you done your placement year already? I did a placement year during my degree, and I certainly learnt a lot. 

    What's your favourite genre of film?

    Hi @romla - & welcome to the community to you also. I bet Mishka misses you too when you're not at home. As you can see we're also a pet-loving group of people. I also enjoy cooking, & watching films, as well as reading. :)

    Hi @chiarieds and @janer1967 thank you for welcoming me on Mimi's post!
    Cats, and all pets, are such lovely companions. I'm lucky to have a neighbours cat regularly visit us often in our student house - that we have fondly nicknamed Colonel Mustard.
    It would be great to hear more about your bunnies, Mimi  :)
