I realised I never introduced myself! I've been on VB
for a few weeks I think, since I decided to make the transition from l/o vegetarian to vegan. I've found the boards really useful and interesting.
I'm from Sydney, Australia and I'm 24 ... I live with my omni boyfriend, although he eats vegan food at home with me and he doesn't bring non-vegan food into the house (except by accident). He rarely eats meat though, so I think its a matter of time until he gives it up.
I am a town planner but I want to make the move into environmental policy (hopefully this year). Its what I have always wanted to do but needed some experience first.
I don't know what else ... I am from a family of environmental activists and so I spend some time doing that ... I am a boxer (I don't do professional fights), and I love australian rules football and watch about 6 games every weekend (go the swans!). I've started growing my own food on the balcony because I hate not knowing where my food has come from. Its winter here but as soon as summer comes I would like to eat raw foods every 2nd week.
Nice to meet you all and I'm sure I'll have questions at some point. Vegetarians and vegans are one of the nicer groups of people I have come across in my life ... must be all that living with compassion
