Hello everyone.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
I've just recently started posting here in the past couple of weeks...or maybe it's only been one--I have a bad memory. Anyway, I don't really remember how I found this site. I was probably surfing the net for more research on my farely new veganism and clicked this as a link. (By the way, what does the star mean in veg*n??)<br><br>
Let's see.......All about me.....<br><br><br><br>
I am 20 years old, female, and live in Connecticut. I live with my two cats and my boyfriend...Soon I will be relocating to Maine to study film and screenplay writing, and *sigh* leaving my boyfriend behind. But, I'm young, and still have a lot of living to do. I love hiking, drawing, writing, thinking up documentaries, camping, going to shows, posting on this site, reading anything I can get my hands on, and imagining a new world. I'm also very verbose, so feel free to stop reading at any time....<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"><br><br><br><br>
I turned vegetarian about 3 months ago...I think...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":confused:"> And am in the process of turning veg*n. I have eliminated all eggs, dairy and most animal products. However, I'm still using up all of the *&$^ I had before I made this decision. I'm still learning about all of the hidden animal by products that are found in just about EVERYthing. But, all in all, I'm excited about the path I'm traveling down. Let's see, what else.....? I work as a bartender..an I think that's about it for me.<br><br>
I'm extremely happy I found this board, for it is very hard to talk to anyone who actually understands ANYthing. After all, my boyfriend is omni, and gets such a kick that I'm so passionate about my "new" life. Looking forward to getting to know all of you!<br><br>
That's it.......told you i was verbose...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":rolleyes:">

jilhrt2-welcome to vb! I'm glad ur goin vegan! In case you need extra clarification (b/c it took me awhile to get this concept) veg*n is just a generic term, to use for either vegan or vegetarian, you just take out the middle letters ("a" or "etaria"). so i could say i've been veg*n for about 7 years, although 5 of that was vegetarian and the rest vegan. hope that helps! good luck with your plans for moving soon, see you around the boards!<br><br>

Thanks everyone! I'm glad I found this site also. Looking forward to getting to know all of you! It's been great so far. I go on almost everyday, especially when I feel frustrated, and these boards always renew my beliefs!

Hi jilhrt2. I found this place quite randomly, too. Serendipitously, it was within days of my deciding to go vegan. I'm not sure I would even still BE vegan without this place -- it's great!<br><br><br><br>
I've seen several of your posts, so feel like I know you a bit already. Come to think of it, I never did do an intro for myself. Oh well!
