About This Blog

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.

    Hi! So it just dawned on me (based on a recent comment you left on Turning Veganese) that you’re in the Chicago area AND OH MY GOODNESS SO AM I. I caught up on your blog today… if you’re feeling adventurous, we should meet up and talk life and vegan cooking! πŸ™‚

    • I actually realized you were in the Chicago area too when I found your personal blog after combing through a ton of the Turning Veganese posts, ha! We can totally vent about how hard it is to be vegan in the land of Portillo’s and Italian beef! πŸ˜‰ Whereabouts are you? I’m in the far West ‘burbs but work in the south burbs not too terribly far from the city itself.
