  About Me

  • About AspiringBuddha
    Biography
    I was born in California, grew up in Texas, currently living in Kansas. I have a B.A. in political science, and am a very recent convert to veganism. I have struggled with depression and actually been hospitalized for it several times, but am now in a really good place. If anyone reading this is depressed, know that it can really get better. It may take meds, it may take therapy, it may take cognitive behavioral coaching, but please, never give up. Life is beautiful and precious and so are you.
    Location
    U.S. Midwest
    Interests
    reading and writing fantasy, playing bridge and poker, studying French and Japanese, spoiling my cat, and learning about vegan cooking and baking
  • Signature
    When we make compassion our barometer, we don't settle for violence on a small scale. We aspire to kindness on a huge scale. --Colleen Patrick-Goudreau
