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