LOL, no, you don't sound like a freak , we have post-its hanging on the tanks with all the parameters every time he tests, at least once a month. That way he can tell if there's been any major changes. It's a good idea and makes a better keeper.
It's really a shame that your parents don't support your interest considering it's a very respectable field to get into.If you get the chance go to the Galápagos Islands. A lot of schools do trips there, but you have to earn/work your way into the program. If your parents don't let you feed the fish suggest an auto feeder that way they don't always have to remember and you know the fish are getting fed on a regular schedule. IDK, might be a comprimise they'd consider.
