Yes, it wasn't good for my health. When I feel an emotion, I have a bad habit of needing to fully experience it with music. I was going though a depression at the time and when I listened to jrock it just got worse. I changed to kpop, and it was sort of like the raw food diet.
I used to love anime, but after a while it got old. I liked manga more XD However because of time restrictions and a fair amount of bullying, I ended up quitting. My manga addiction is gone now hahaha. Occasionally I'll go online and see where one of my favorite stories has ended up, but that's at most 1-2 times a year, not 5-6 times a day :P.
I want to backpack around the world. I think I might take a year off of college and just go to Taiwan, Thailand, Korea (though I won't be able to stay in Korea for very long because they don't have too much fruit. I'll have to bring a good 20 kilos of dates hahaha)
I have been to my fare share of countries. Japan, Brazil, Venezuela, Canada, France, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Peru... :)
I want to visit every single country possible. I won't let my diet stop me, I'll just buy 20 kilos of dates and take them on my back everywhere. I was originally worried about traveling on a raw food diet, but I've been listening to ideas and, even though living on dried fruit for a long time is not great, I could easily do it for 1-2 months.
Well, today I eat 40 bananas!! Which is my personal record. Yesterday was a very hard day...
At the morning I had a 5kg watermellon and some grapes, then some exercice... then the bananas and right now I'm eating some dates. I think each of them have like 200 kalories... I buy the big ones :P with 15 will be enough.
And for dinner I'll have a salad with greek lettuce, tomatoes and avvocato.
I'm not sure if I complete the 9000 kalories this time :(
Hey so sorry this reply is so late. I kept procrastinating. >.>
I don't know everywhere, probably if you go to a street vendor or someone of the sort you will find fruit, cheap. But if you're going to a normal supermarket your wallet will go ouch.
Bizzarre in the sense of... well, for example street fashion. The girls look more like dolls than women and the men look like they just came out of a manga XD But that is what made me fall in love with japan in the first place, the people. So kind, polite, and calm.
I used to be heavy into visual kei but I realized it wasn't good for my health so I switched to kpop. It saved my life, literally.
I love science haha. I can pass on a lot of interesting articles/books if I don't have the time, but but if they're about science I generally waste my time reading them in detail until I am left scrambling to finish everything else. It's a daily hassle. ^^;
I used to live in Japan. I love the place and I would love to go back again, but with being a HCRV it's a little hard since the fruit there is absolutely amazing, but not in any way cheap. What I can say is that Japan is very different from anything country I have ever been to. The mentality is bizarre but absolutely beautiful in itself. I love it.
I love dance, music, medicine, learning about the world and everything it has to offer. Every day I try to learn at least 10 new things.
Oh I can't send you a msg for some reason... but yes I am looking for traveling friends too :). I ideally would love to go to hawaii in a few months, and eat lots of papayas and cheap fruit with some other raw fruity friends. :)
Oh I was a total bread hog too, that was one of my huge vices. My dad would buy a loaf and I could eat it all in one night. BUT what helped for me was going over the ingredients VERY carefully...I found out the bread we had been buying had l-cysteine in it, which is from duck feathers. D: A lot of breads and baked goods have trace non-vegan ingredients, and knowing that has helped me avoid them.
Oh I remember reading about his raw journey as well, very cool. I also went vegan for ethical reasons, 'cause I care much more about animals than I do about myself (or I used to, anyways!). That's awesome that your mom is also trying raw. I'm trying to get my mom on the McDougall diet, which is vegan and starch-based, but she's all "I love dairy!" and I'm all "Gross! Don't!", but I guess "Don't!" isn't the best way to argue my point anyways. =) Diet soda is evil. I'm convinced that it is. It's SO addictive. It was harder for me to give up soda than cooked food, but I've felt SO much better since I did. People think it's healthier than regular soda but it's so bad. =(
