Minnesota Vegan Here :)

Postby Jaime » Wed Jul 21, 2010 3:05 pm

Howdy everyone,

I figured I'd introduce myself even though life is busy at the moment and I won't have much time to post. :P

I'm Jaime, a 21 year-old female from Minneapolis, Minnesota, and have been vegan-ish for about two months now (I say "vegan-ish" since I've slipped a few times, e.g., absentmindedly eating bread that had cheese on it). I was vegetarian for about 14 months prior to turning vegan, and that initial decision was based on having my eyes opened in an Ethics course I took in my second year of college.

On another note, I'm really big into minimalism (http://mnmlist.com/consumerism-vs-minimalism/ just in case) and own just short of 80 possessions and am a fan of "recycling" and largely only buying things from thrift stores. I also like to run! ...Aaaand, yeah! Hah. :)

So, nice to meetcha!

welcome :)
I tell people I'm too stupid to know what's impossible. I have ridiculously large dreams, and half the time they come true.

welcome Jaime!! I dig the minimalism idea. i like to pretend i'm one too, but i just have too much stuff from years and years of collecting.

However, for birthdays and holidays, i tell people to either give to a charity or give me consumables (food/beverages) or nothing at all. but some people seem compelled to still give me stuff i don;t need. :(

Welcome Jaime! From Minneappolis, cool. I enjoyed a trip there in the late 90's. Hope you are getting the hang ok of being vegan now. I remember when I first turned vege somone offering me a piece of luncheon and eating it, whoops, my brain didn't register it as meat.

welcome!

"The worker has the right to leave his boss, but can she do it? And if she does quit him, is it in order to lead a free life; where she will have no master but herself? No, she leaves to sell herself to another employer. She's driven by the same hunger. Thus the worker's liberty is only a theoretical freedom, lacking any means of realization; an utter falsehood."
