gurlcode said: I'm so glad I found your blog. It is everything I encompass and I could not feel anymore spiritually connected. I am not vegan, but my question to you is how did you wean into becoming a vegan? Or did you jump right into it? Also, do you practice meditation?
I am so glad to hear that! I was already vegetarian for a long time, so transitioning to veganism wasn’t that difficult. I used up all the non-vegan groceries I had (mostly just things containing dairy) or gave them away and then began to buy vegan replacements. And yes I do meditate regularly. (:
This is controversial but I must say I agree, as much as I hate to admit it.
I always resented the idea that there are must-read books, usually classics written by dead white people. As if they’re a rite of passage into pretentious dinner conversations. I’ve read some of these “classics” for the sake of it, and honestly most of them are the most dull, unoriginal shit I’ve ever read. And none of them spoke to me in any way. Shakespeare ain’t shit.
The main reason why I believe that we should sometimes eat our young, sniff each others asses, and urinate in other people’s living rooms to show dominance. It’s my religion. Show it the respect it deserves.
