I'm here because I'm very much craving discussion with other vegans.<br><br>
I'm from the west coast, Washington State. I was born in Yakima, WA and I've left my familiar settings and abandoned it for Massachusetts. While Massachusetts is everything that I've ever dreamt it to be and more...I'm lacking in the vegan friends area.<br><br>
Which is why I turn to you/you all.<br><br>
I have been vegan for...it will be six years in October. I was a vegetarian for four years prior to that. The school I'm currently going to isn't exactly what I would call "vegan friendly" but I'm working on it.<br><br>
Won't you be my vegan friend? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":love:">

I joined for the same reasons, too. I've never met another vegan or vegetarian, and I think that the discussions, support, and suggestions on veggieboards have really helped me become and choose to stay vegan. It's really nice to meet you, I look forward to seeing you around the forum!

Hi, and welcome to VeggieBoards!!!<br><br>
I am from Massachusetts, so maybe I can help you out. May I ask where you live? [If you're worried about privacy issues just give me the next town over or something...haha] I live in between Sturbridge and Palmer, so I'm in Central/Western Mass. Honestly the BEST place for vegans is Amherst and Northampton[South Hadley even has cute little places if you know where to look]. I'm about a 30 minute drive from those places, maybe 40 on a bad day...<br><br>
I'll be your friend! <3 PM me any time. =]

Welcome!<br>
You really will find like-minded people here!<br><br>
You're not alone, really.<br><br>
You walk past people in the supermarket that don't have "vegan" tattoo'd on their foreheads, but they're there.<br><br>
Here's a local forum spot for Massachusetts: <a href="http://www.veggieboards.com/newvb/forumdisplay.php?87-Massachusetts" target="_blank">http://www.veggieboards.com/newvb/fo...-Massachusetts</a><br><br>
I know you miss Oregon, but Food Fight Grocery delivers nationwide! <a href="http://www.foodfightgrocery.com/" target="_blank">http://www.foodfightgrocery.com/</a>

Thanks you guys. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
I'm glad we're friends.<br><br>
I do miss the pacific north west and all it's vegan goodness.<br><br>
I live about 30 minutes out from Boston. I spend a lot of time in Haverhill, MA as well.

Your join date is over a year ago, and you only have 5 posts including the two in this tread. Why?<br><br>

Hazelnut I didn't notice that maybe some people join and then forget and then come back again at a later date. People gets busy in their lives and forget. Well, she is coming on her now that is a start.

I wasn't being mean about it... I was just curious.<br><br>
I left for a few years myself.

Yes I know you weren't mean about it. Yes I sometimes go off for a few months but that is when I am having trust issues.<br>
However, getting back on topic and saying Hi to the OP <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

That's what it was. My memory. I went to sign up and I already existed from years ago. Interesting, really.

Also here for lack of vegan friends IRL - with the exception of my boyfriend, that is. We currently aren't living together, though, and I do feel pretty lonely sometimes, despite being around more people here than I was there. It's hard enough living in a world where so many are exploited; harder still when you don't have people around you who also get how wrong that exploitation is, when no one around you seems to care.<br><br>
So, yeah, I'm looking for friends, too! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Ah, how interesting. I clicked your thread because the title relates to me, then I find out you live in Massachusetts too! I live about 20-30minutes west of Boston in Waltham. I wonder how far that is from where you are?

Well I'm in Lowell! I have no idea where Waltham is though because New England is still pretty new to me. I'm about half an hour from Boston.
