After two stints of vegetarianism that amounted to six years total, I’ve decided to make the plunge and adopt a new diet. I’m hesitant to call it veganism because the persistent thought of failing keeps drumming in my brain. This blog started as part of a new year’s “non-resolution”: to find happiness, to be positive, to stop dwelling in my cocoon of negativity. Part of this means adopting healthier choices that make me feel better, both physically and emotionally.
Outside of that, I’m a 20-something 9-to-5’er, a craft beer lover (thank god for barnivore!), an aspiring–while still very elementary–yogi, a former English major, a suburbanite, an indie music fan, a bleeding-heart liberal, a feminist, an animal rescue volunteer, and a lover of all things written. I recently moved out on my own (in the company of my two cats) and I’m trying to make the most of the professional world, entertaining the idea of going back to school, and figuring out (and sometimes struggling with) finances. I’m here to navigate unfamiliar waters, to learn more about myself, and to try new things. I’m trying to say “yes” more and I’m going to probably be a little bit selfish. I’m looking at challenges with the idea that “this is my everest,” and damnit, I’m going to make it up this incline, revel in the view, and find my way back down to planet Earth.
I’m ready for change and change is now.
