I suppose I will introduce myself, even though I might not be the best at it. My name is Patrick and I reside in the redneck mecca of Daytona Beach, Florida. I am freshly 22 years old and have been vegan for 3 years/vegetarian for 7 years. Also, I have been straight edge for 6 years. I spend a lot of my time playing with hardcore and metal bands and I try but fail at being a decent cook. Animal welfare and Veganism is more important to me everyday, so I made the decision to join this site!
