Hi All!

I am brand-sparkling new to this site. Just wanted to introduce myself.

My name is Jessica and I am 24. I have been vegetarian for almost a year now and am very happy with it. I never ate much meat anyway. I do still eat organic dairy and eggs but plan to become vegan in the future.



I am pretty much the only vegetarian in my circle of friends, though I sometimes still come across those "oh...I am vegetarian, I only eat chicken sometimes....oh yeah, and tuna, but thats not really fish, is it " kinda people. GARGAR!!



Anyway, take care everybody. TTYL,

Jess :P

Welcome! Like you, I never ate much meat anyway, so my transition to vegetarianism/veganism was very natural for me.

Welcome to VB!



How'd you find us?

We see the world as "we" are, not as "it" is; because it is the "I" behind the "eye" that does the seeing.

We frequently have discussions about the chicken eating veggies. Kurm has an ongoing joke that fish grow on trees.



Welcome!

More about me? Mhh..lets see. Here is my life in a nutshell:

Well, as previously said, I am a 24 y.o. vegetarian, inching my way towards veganism.

I grew up in Berlin, Germany lived there for 20 years, got married, moved to the states, separated, started dating some complete douche bag and thankfully got rid of him after 1 year.

I decided it was time for a life change, so I packed my stuff, moved into a wonderful group house in Virginia, got a gym membership, gained some weight (thank god) and then decided I would give this vegetarian "thing" a shot.

Since then I have been pretty content and happy.

I saw this poll earlier about "stupid things omnivores say". My mom and stepdad actually insisted for 6 months that I was just trying to be difficult and that my vegetarianism and interest in animal rights was just a phase. Grrr. Finally they got a grip and got me a vegetarian cookbook for christmas, lol.

As a matter of fact they are BOTH vegetarians now themselves



I think thats enough of my uneventfull live for today.....Would love to hear about you guys.

Take care, Jess

bunnyfish,

Welcome! It seems to me that you fit right in with the rest of us.

Q: How many poets does it take to change a light bulb? A: 1001...one to change the bulb, 1000 to say it's already been done.

Welcome, Like you I have been a vegetarian for about a year now and I'm trying to transition myself into veganism. I do not eat eggs, cheese, or drink Milk, but I still eat some products that are made with these ingrediants. I'm starting to read lables and I'm finding alot of items that do not contain dairy or eggs, so it's a easier then I thought it was going to be. Hopefuly soon I will be able to call myself a vegan.
