My name is Diamond and I have been a vegetarian for two years.<br><br>
I'm 18, getting ready to graduate high school, and, at the moment, not 100% sure what I'm gonna do in the fall. I have one school in mind that I would <i>LOVE</i> to go to, but, even though I don't believe in luck or being jinxed, I'm not going to say the name of it and put a so-called curse on my chances of getting in<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">. On the other hand, I will say I plan on studying music.<br><br>
I live in Nowheretown, USA. I can't go out and get a job as I can't drive (no license. Plus, I just flat out suck at driving<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:">), so the only person I can depend on to get my veg subsitutes is my mother. But we're kinda strapped right now so my diet has been consistent of homemade pasta (she only shops at Wal-Mart where they sell Boca and MorningStar for nearly $4. Imagine being a carnivore who can get 1lb of beef for about $2.50 and buying soy burgers that you're not even gonna eat yourself).<br><br>
I've joined the VB because I feel like I need to be amongst my own kind. I am apart of an atheist board, where the only things I seem to have in common with everyone else are my lack of religion and my political views. They have some threads about veganism, PETA, etc. which consist of the members talking about canine teeth and giving other bs reasons as to why humans should be eating meat (I always thought that someone on there would give a scientific reason as to why humans are natural herbivores).<br><br>
And that is my long-winded story. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/hi.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":hi:">

Hello and welcome to Veggieboards.<br><br>
Why can't you walk or cycle to work?</div>
</div>
<br>
1. I don't have a bike.<br>
2. When I say Nowheretown, I mean far from civilization(about ten miles). It would take hours for me to walk to work, if I had a job that is.
