If you had a farm with your own cows and chicken, would you drink milk, eat eggs or even make your own cheese? Are your personal reasons for being a vegan based of the current food industry or something else?
Honestly, no. I’m not against the consumption of animal products, I just cannot support factory farming + animal ‘manufacture’ on a mass scale. Milk is not a sustainable product unless your cow is perpetually lactating, which would require breeding and taking their babies away so the milk can be harvested. Drinking another beasts’ mammary secretion really weirds me out; I much prefer my ‘milk’ of squashed beans ;)
Asides from that, I’m lactose intolerant + my bowel issues mean I have a lot of trouble processing animal products such as flesh and ovum, so no dice, really. I don’t adhere as zealously to my diet as some people; I’m more of an oppurtunistic freegan XD
Are you fuckin’ kidding me?! It doesn’t make you hallucinate you dickhead! You either fell asleep or ate everything in the house, but you definitely did not hallucinate!
this reminds me of those people who know nothing about weed. like this friend I had. she just didn’t…
Haha exactly! If you get violent you’ve obviously had other drugs.
Once upon a time, I smoked around a quarter of an oz in a sitting, and spent the night lying on the floor, talking gibberish at the ceiling. Never. Again -shudders- It’s not that it’s not possible [to hallucinate while smoking], but it’s just a stupid thing to do. More than anything, it’s just indicative of someone’s inability to handle their poisons ;P
People who use marijuana to get ratshit on the reg are as bad as those who drink to get messy, as far as I’m concerned. I’m all for the smoking of starwort, but jeeez, it’s not something to use for inebriation! If you want to get trippy, take acid; stop giving medicinal users a bad name.
The government is issuing a formal apology to the mothers and children of the horrific forced adoptions that were rife in the 50s/60s.
I am so glad, more than anything, for my mum. Her birth mother, Jen, was coerced into adopting my mother out, because she was a single mum + ‘couldn’t possibly look after her baby.’ Jen didn’t want to give mum up; it was a horrible, drawn out fight which ended in my mother being ripped from her mother’s arms + placed in another home.
They’ve since been reunited, and I contact my nan on the regular; it’s kind of nice to have three sets of grandparents. I digress; I am just so happy that people like Jen and my wonderful mother are getting the apology they deserve. It’s never going to undo the pain they had to endure, but there is some kind of solace in knowing that government officials feel guilty for their awful actions.
I find myself constantly hurting because, simply put, I wear my heart on my sleeve. I rarely do anything for myself and I'm always putting in 100% for others. No one has ever done the same for me. You're probably the wrong person but I just needed to let it out. And I'm sorry for that. :(
It’s okay :3
You shouldn’t hurt for the fact that you’re a caring person, just be sure to differentiate between people who like having you around + people who use you while you’re around.
Being a doormat is no good; remember that it is okay to put yourself before others sometimes. Go to a cafe, buy two slices of cake and eat them BOTH! :D -squishes- I hope you’re melancholy passes; you’re a good person :)
