how big a part of your life is being furry?

furry in my life so far has = Friends. so pretty much a big part Since my standards are always friends and family first :p
 
It doesn't really impact my life at all. I am the same person now that I am furry as when I wasn't furry. Though I associate that with not meeting that many furs or even going to a con yet. Though, I think even though I went to the cons, It wouldn't affect my life drasticly. I will find out certain aspects of myself I probably didn't know before, but my world won't end. I know I wouldn't lose my possible job due to it, cause what I do on my own time is really no-one's business. I wouldn't lose the family that are left after a major issue I had in my life. I still like the same music I did before I had scales. So no, I don't think it affects my life.

Well in my spare time I draw furries, write furry stuff and browse the furry forums. I also have a fursuit although I don't wear it often. Wear my tail to youth club on Friday nights though. So a large part of my time but it doesn't really rule over it lol.

Hmmm I'm pretty shy about myself when I'm out running around so it's not a big part of my life right now

being furry has absolutely no impact on my life outside of an occasional conversation with my friends

i dont even know why im on these forums
 
I make animal noises consistantly, have drawn anthros since I could draw, and am in the process of making a fursuit.

But ultimately, I'm just me.

In my dreams I'm not a furry, and although I have what I refer to as an alter-ego, she is not a furry.

bang your head.
be proud and scream it out loud!

I have told almost everyone (you know except for those people who hate everything and keep calling everything gay)

It helps me decide many things and helps me make many choices.

(sometimes wears tail in public)

It's a huge part right now in a quiet way, but once I go to a con...I'm still not going to go all-life-consuming-furry, but I'll get as involved as I want to. <<

I would say a semi-big part. Not really though because I am very new to the whole fandom in general. So, I have been working to make it a bigger part ^_^

Is not French
It's kind of a second life I hold that exists only on the internet. The personality Mr. Fox online is almost absolutely nothing like what I'm really like, oddly enough. So you could say it's a big part of my life, except that it's not the life I live every day going to class or taking walks or traveling or whatever I happen to be doing that day.
It's most important as a psychological exercise, you could say. This is going to sound extremely pathetic (because it is), but since I just don't enjoy being descended from monkeys, it's good for me to be able to get away from that for some number of hours a day. Even though it's all make-believe.
I do envy the folks who can convince themselves that they've got an animal soul, though; that would be the easiest way out. But I'm just too cynical to be able to do that myself, so I act the fox in writing instead.

...and that's my serious personal essay for the month. Thank you and good night.

the longer you are a furry the more your intrest will grow. it is becoming more and more of my daily routine manifesting its self in almost every thought and action but without conflict..... or maby I'm just feeling dramatic or something? but it does grow on you after a while and just gets more and more fun. that's the beauty of it because does not really ever get old.

Waiting to get thin again
If anything I've gotten father and father away from the fandom as I've grown up. The only "furry" things I do anymore is draw and come here.
 
While I do enjoy being a furry and drawing furry art, in real life being a furry is a very small part of it. Only my friends know I am one, and I'll NEVER step foot into a fursuit (had a very bad experience in a mascot suit growing up, and never want to be in any suit of that kind ever again)

So, you could say it really doesn't make up a lot of my social life, but it does make up a lot of my online/art life.

It got really stale, really quick for me. :\

I draw furry-ish characters occasionally, sit on this forum, and I go to AC.

Eh, one of my better friends is a furry and so is his boyfriend. So, if I catch anything furry around he gets embarrassed and we laugh our asses off about how ridiculous it all is. We make fun of the argot a lot. It really doesn't go beyond that.

It's a small part of my life, as I don't think about it much but when I'm able to draw, I'll draw furry for a few hours. Only 2 other furs know I'm a furry, as well as my sister Dusk, but everyone else just know that I like anthropomorphics and draw them including general fantasy art. My fursona isn't anymore than just what I'd like to be if people could transform into an anthro, she has some factors that define the real me, and is really just a..little furry mascot/identity in the art community.

As for acting furry.. =P Not really. I sometimes 'woof' as a greeting/random thing to my close friend; Tsumi, but that's it.

depends on your attitude about it and how intrested you really are.

It only has little significance and doesn't really affect my lifestyle. I don't think it'll be much more than browsing the art every once in a while and lurking on forums. I just feel no motives to get more involved in it.
