New here

Hello! My name is Brook. I've been a vegetarian since I was five and an on-again, off-again vegan since I was thirteen. (I'm turning 23 this month, so I'd say that's a pretty good stretch!) My youngest sister has been a vegetarian for about six years, but the rest of my family is omnivorous (although my boyfriend's sisters consider vegetarianism from time to time, and his brother was even vegan for a month.) I originally went vegetarian for the animals, but after struggling with eating disorders for most of my teens I chose to put a lot more focus on my health.

I recently got my BA in literature, and I'm looking at grad school to move up in my field. My boyfriend and and I had to move into my parents' basement after our landlord increased our rent, and we're currently saving up to buy a home. We're hoping to get a little traveling in before we start trying for a baby.

So yeah. That's me.

Well met Brook and welcome to the forums! That's quite a good stretch indeed and it's great that you can have the support of your sister!

Welcome! My parents helped me out too, letting me live with them until I got my own place. I paid them rent and bought my own food, etc, but it was much less expensive than an apartment would have been.
