Hello, name is Terri. Just thought I would say hi. I am new to this board. Looking for fellow vegetarians/vegans to talk to, being there aren't many in North Dakota. I think the state is actually made out of meat. I've been a vegetarian for about a year. I would someday like to be Vegan, that will be very difficult to do here ( I had to order Tahini and Brown Rice Syrup ).<br><br><br><br>
I am a 27 year old single mom of 3/ college student, majoring in Art/English and Philosophy. I am also hoping to head to graduate school in a year. I like music, literature and art. Oh yeah, I really like hockey too<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
Peace

hi, I'm from Miami, Manitoba, so I might be the closest one to you. I'm about a half hour north of North Dakota. I don't think there are any other Manitobans here either, and I totally understand what it's like to be a vegetarian in this hick area of the world. What town do you live in?

I have heard of Miami. I live in the little town of Jamestown. Basically a college town,, when the college kids go home over the summer, this town dies. I cant wait to move<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Hi Terri! I live in Virginia now but I lived in South Dakota for three years. We were in the Black Hills. Which part of ND are you in, western or eastern? I know what you mean about not knowing many veg*ns where you live. We moved from cattle country to poultry country. It can be hard in a small town!<br><br><br><br>

I live in Northwestern Minnesota --45 minutes from ND -- I know what you mean! It's the same way over here.. nobody had even HEARD of the term 'vegan'.. let alone know what it means.

Welcome <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
I used to be a huge hockey fan. Not that I'm not now, I just don't follow it any longer and have no idea who is who.<br><br>
Last I watched, Gretzky was on the L.A. Kings! Yikes!<br><br><br><br>
did I just date myself with that?? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)">

Terri, where are you moving too? I can't believe you've heard of Miami! There are only about 450 people max in this town. Do you come to Canada much? I don't go to ND much because it's not much different than here.

Thanks for welcoming me, everyone.<br><br><br><br>
First off: I am from central north dakota, which is the middle of nowhere. Rather , the middle of bison country, where they actually slaughter and eat the beautiful beasts. Grrr Ted Turner!!!<br><br>
Although, I drive west often because my ex lives there.<br><br><br><br>
Stellar26. I feel your pain. Honestly we have 3 restaurants here that are not fast food. And they are all very non veggie friendly.I work in the bar area of a bar and grill and my boss EVERYDAY eats the same thing : A medium rare sirloin steak. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br><br><br>
LOL strix: Seriously, you do know Gretsky retired dont ya<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br><br><br>
superjane: I didnt know Miami was that small. The only reason I know is because one of my friends from Miami FL noticed another few Miami's in an internet search one time. Ive never been there and I havent been to Canada for about three months. Although my friend and I are due for another trip to go clubbing soon ..I hope to be moving to Cali or New York for graduate school after I graduate. Possibly moving to Minnesota for my last year of college as I seriously thing the administration here is on crack :S
