The lifestyle is a no brainer, but the eating is getting easier. I'm eating alot more and having a blast finding new places I can eat out, just to prove to myself and others there's plenty of choices as vegan. Funny, I have a freind who insists on asking me why I'm doing this to myself, as if I must be miserable. I don't preach when it's not asked for, or judge others on their lifestyle choices, however, if you're going to talk down to me when I'm the happiest, healthiest i've been in over 15 years, you're going to get a mouthful and be shown this pic.
Another funny story, I went out to eat the other night and asked the server if the sauces were vegan. He hesitated and said "No, I guess they can't be vegan because there's sugar in them." I looked at him, laughed, and said Do you know what vegan means? It's simply means no animal products, and I'm pretty sure sugar doesn't come from animals. He then told me he had a customer who said they were vegan and sugar wasn't vegan but yet they were able to eat animal products. I told this person was so, completely wrong. It's crazy how little people know, this day in age, the age of the internet when there's so much information available about anything.
I am so pumped that I decided to go to Chiang. Mai. The only other place I've been outside of the US was Jamaica, so this is definitely a big leap for me. I'm going by myself, but that's really exciting and invigorating. I kept debating if I wanted to spend the $2000 on a plane ticket and then I though, what would it go to if I didn't? clothes? make-up? more shit I don't need? So I made the decision for the betterment of my life, to meet new people, to see new places, do all things I've always wanted to do but was too broke because I wasted my money. I'm also excited I get pretty much an entire day layover in Hong Kong! Total bonus! Thank you to everything that led me to this lifestyle, leading me to awesome oppurtunities!
