Are you completely sick of it yet? Because, I sure am! It seems like veganism has completely taken over my life. It’s a part of every decision I make. The last 7 months have been some of the hardest of my life, and that’s saying something! I’ve some pretty hard times! It probably wouldn’t be so hard if I had more support, or some friends that were in the same situation. Usually Chris is that for me. He isn’t a vegan, but at least he understands why I am. But man, even he surprises me sometimes. Last night my dear sweet boyfriend, who at this point is completely sick of Taco Bell (one of the few places I can go with options that aren’t french fries), called my veganism “inconvenient”, because there was no place I could eat nearby. Well no shit! Do I look like I’m having a ball with it myself? Is depriving myself of ice cream something you think I would do with a Cheshire Cat smile on my face? No, probably not! (more…)
Are they still taking applications to go to Mars?
I’m not kidding. I really can’t believe some of the things I see. I used to not care. I used to be able to shut this bleeding heart off. I was able to turn my focus to the beauty of the world. The cute cuddly animals, the loving brotherhood of man. But that’s all just gone out the window. It seems like every time I turn around there’s a story about someone being hurt, an animal being tortured, someone being taken advantage of. It’s every minute of every day! (more…)
I have a friend named Cassie* who is always asking me questions about things I know absolutely nothing about! But I, being that kind of sad girl that likes to keep everyone happy, always stick myself with helping her figure things out! No Cassie, I didn’t go to school to learn north dakota bankruptcy laws, but let me devote the next week of my life to researching it for you! Come on girl, pick up the phone, the laptop, the brain, and figure things out for yourself!!
Please excuse my childish whining. You can only take so much though I guess.
*Name changed to protect the innocent.
My adventures in vegan land are somewhat limited. I haven’t even been vegan for 6 months and already I’m exhausted with explaining myself. Sometimes I’m surprised by just how offended people get. Why on earth is my decision to eat differently than you some kind of personal insult? I don’t go around shouting loud and proud about it, or telling you the animal flesh you eat disgusts me, or that 15% of the “milk” you’re consuming is actually puss from infected utters. I’m very polite about my veganism, I do not wish to impose it upon anyone else. So why should I not expect the same courtesy? (more…)
Why do things crap out in turns? It’s like, once you finally replace one thing, something else goes out, and you’re constantly buying things! It’s more than frustrating. My dryer is on it’s last legs, I can tell it. It takes two cycles to dry clothes now, and it’s just sucking power, and money right along with it. I don’t really like the thought of getting a new one, I would rather figure out what’s going on with the one I have and get it fixed. But still, I’m looking. Never hurts to read reviews, and company information. (more…)
Remember this post, from the other day? Well, if there’s one thing about New York weather that I could complain about, it’s that the cold won’t go away!! The last two days we’ve had a terrible cold front, the temperature has dipped down to the mid thirties! I knew I shouldn’t have said anything about it, I’m a jinx! (more…)
I dropped out of high school really early. It isn’t something I’m proud of, but it’s true. I don’t feel like I had a real “high school experience”. There was no prom, no fun times with friends, no passing notes in science. My teen years consisted of watching Guiding Light with my mother, and endless hours journaling and writing angsty poetry. Naturally this seclusion left me with some problems socializing, and a bit of awkwardness. A lot of times I regret missing out on such important life experiences. One of the things I don’t regret missing? The drama! I could never get into the cliques and the popularity games. But I’m beginning to realize that this stuff never stops. It doesn’t matter how old you get, there will always be someone cooler than you to make sure you know what a dweeb you are. (more…)
It seems like cars are falling apart all around me. I’ve had 3 friends come to me with their car woes, and I honestly think it is contagious. Now it has been passed along to Chris. I feel terrible. It’s like someone coughed on me, and I coughed on him. What kind of girlfriend is irresponsible enough to get their beloved’s car sick? (more…)
I am excited! Want to know why? Probably not, but I’m telling you anyway!
Okay, let’s keep in mind that I probably wouldn’t be so excited, if it weren’t for the complete and total annoyance I felt last night. This probably makes no sense, but you would understand if you had spent two (not one but TWO) hours looking for a decent vegan sandwich bread that could be made in a bread maker. I’ve been wanting to make my own bread for ages, and going vegan didn’t change that for me. (more…)
And I don’t just go accusing cats of being awful. It is not a word I throw around. Carnation has earned her “awful” status, with a series rotten actions. There are things that make her awful that are out of her control. And I give her a pass on those things. She has had digestive issues since Chris’ mom got her like 5 years ago, and a lot of times it causes her behind to be less than sparkling clean. Luckily, she is on the mend, after some quality time with the vet and a special (and expensive) new food. (more…)
I’m so offended! Beyonce is a big fat liar face! How betrayed I feel! She lip synced!? I’m disgusted![/sarcasm]
Come on folks, really? We’re this shocked over something so trivial? Terrible things are happening every day, and yet, this is what gets news time? (more…)
My memory sucks. It drives me insane! Sometimes something will remind me of a book I’ve read, a movie I’ve seen, or a song I’ve heard, and I can’t for the life of me remember what it was! Atleast it’s usually something popular, and easy to find. I can often google a few words of a song, and it will pop right up. But this time, it’s different. This time I have been racking my brain, and getting absolutely nowhere. (more…)
Does anyone else think it’s ridiculous what people get worked up over? How many times are we going to have the “Oh my God! The world is going to end!” panic? The world has been here billions of years, and will be for a long long time after we’re all gone. How anyone could believe that a human error can predict Earth’s destruction is beyond me! But people get worked up. (more…)
Why? Just why? Why does this keep happening? Why did Adam Lanza hate his mother? Why did he have to bring 26 other innocent people into it? More questions than answers. But maybe that’s a good thing, maybe we should be questioning ourselves and everything else.
Come on people, what is it going to take? I know people are very protective of their “right to bear arms”, and I am sure there are going to be plenty of people with something to say one way or the other, but how can we keep allowing this to happen? (more…)
