im a 28 yr old vegan male currently living in San Diego California USA.

Im a college drop out, or can i not refer to my self as one because i only went to community college for a year? anyway, some people think im funny, and they like to hang out with me, but i dont really like very many people, so i usually spend lots of time alone, which is ok with me i suppose.

I like to think of myself as a writer, but i cant say as i ever wrote anything. I actually distain writing, well not writing so much as the whole writing process. You know like thinking of a story and characters and getting them into some intelligible form that someone other than i can understand.

i think im slowly going insane, which is odd because insanity doesnt run in my family. Like i recently devoloped the power to control rainfall. Dont believe me? I use to ride my bike to work everyday for about 7 months. In that time i had never been rained on. Sure it rained during some of those days, just not in the location i was or during the time i was riding my bike, which was at the same time and the same course everyday. I also have to power to control other peoples thoughts, if you dont believe me i have proof. You are thinking hey this guy is a bit off, which is what i wanted you to think. see!!!!! im freaking jedi master. sorta.

basically i think that we are all just bits of particles that get increasingly smaller, yet all work together to form something bigger. Of course this is true for everything. Like the atoms make up molecules, molecules make up organs, organs make up the body, the body works at some job, the employer supplies stuff to people the people belong to a city, the city a state, the state a country, the country is part of earth, the earth is part of a solar system, the solar system is part of the universe, well that as bout as far as it gets, but maybe in a few years we will know what is beyond all that and know what is smaller than subatomic particles or whatever. So basically we are just pieces of a greater whole and at the same time we are the greater whole. of course that isnt exact, i think i missed some pieces in that.

im also working on the theory of majakism, which is named after me of course. funny that, egostical manic. anyway, it basically is a secret that i cant tell you about because i was contracted by the us government for militarising it. it will be much more fun than a nuclear warhead when i get it finished.

Signifigant other I suppose. We met on veggiedate over a year ago and just wrote to each other and I sent her some fire shirts and stuff. Then she came to FL from the place where she lives (not FL and not ID) so we could meet and we hit it off.

Ohh yeah ,and I made a mistake Im only 26 ,

I posted at Vegsource under the name Gazelle from 1999-2000, until I got into an argument with Joanne Stepaniak and was subsequently voted out of the tribe. So I headed over to Vegan Outreach (at the time, VO and VS were not getting along with each other) and posted there as Gazelle Sunday. Then VO got rid of their forums and I registered here.

I've been a vegetarian 6 years, a vegan 4 1/2 years. I'm a 24-year-old single gay female. I graduated from college last year with a degree in psychology. This year I'm working for AmeriCorps VISTA in Syracuse, NY. I'm opinionated enough to get kicked off of message boards but I'm really not that hotheaded in real life.


I really like this smilie even though it bothers a lot of people:

i'ma steal this from kreeli:

name: kerouac

age: old enough to drink, smoke, buy firearms and porn (not that i do)

marital status: singlish..being very single. although i was married via internet to majake somewhere in the dark months of december 2001. not that they were dark enough for me not to enjoy it.

children: none that i remember birthing

occupation: was office flunky. now clerk. always a funky free spirited barefoot wanderer up to traveling the country by boxcar and jamming with some kind souls whereever i meet them

education: whippingboy for the university. got a few degrees somewhere around here.

veg*n qualifications: vegan many years.

old-timer req's: silent member at Vegan Outreach and Veggieboards v.1, but moderator here at Veggieboards v.2 and 3 (not to mention i whined enough to get this very place we are posting about ourselves right now. dunn dunn duuuuunnn

I suppose I qualify as old school, seeing as I can barely remember the time when I wasn't a part of VB. What, don't tell me that was only a year and half ago!!!

Name: Ain't it obvious? The lark of the sky.

Age: Mighty close to rolling over into another decade.

Marital Status: I prefer to consider myself single but not available.

Children: Where?! Do they want hugs? I'm all about it!

Occupation: Right now I am employed at a small grocery store and at the writing tutoring lab at my college. I hope to get out of the food-selling business ASAP.

Education: Currently in my third year of undergraduate study. I'm aiming for a BA in journalism and a minor in Spanish within a year and a half.

Veg*n Qualifications: I've been a vegetarian for close to three years (and I haven't died yet, HA GRANDMA!), and I've tried going vegan twice. So far it has yet to "stick".

Old Timer's Reqs: I wasn't part of VS, VO, or even VB1. However, I was one of the first newbies to join with VB2.

Hobbies: VB posting, going on service trips, yakking in Spanish with my buds, investigating communication phenomena, writing for my college's student newspaper, trying to motivate my church's young adult group to do ANYTHING, debating, singing, avoiding writing at all costs because I both love it and hate it, and procrastinating.

Turn Ons: a particular hot dude at my college... track and cross country runner, Bible&Theology major, luscious curly brown hair, invigorating blue-gray eyes, and when you see his legs in those running shorts you can tell why he's a great cross country runner. He's also a good sport, a neccessity for when I trounced him at Euchre many times last week.

Turn Offs: I don't exclude friends who have/think these, but I won't ever date or marry someone who: is an atheist, pagan, Buddhist, etc (anything except a Christian) or has bad breath, poor hygiene in general, bad teeth, really bad hair, dumbness, legalism, etc. I was just rambling there... don't anyone get offended.

Fantasy: Going to Barcelona, Spain, becoming fluent in Spanish, getting an MA and Ph.D in communications, teaching journalism in a college or university, marrying, having children, homeschooling children, hiking the Appalachian Trail, riding my bicycle coast-to-coast, going on the mission field... wow, I have a lot of fantasies.

Ok, here goes. My name is Robert, 38 yrs old.

I had no real interest in veg* at all and thought all veg* were AR whackos because of the various actions by PeTA. Then Michael, whom I have known for a long time, asked me to look in on this new VB2 board while he was going away.

It took all of 2 days to lose the misconceptions I had via the interaction with people such as Tame, Avalon and Teri and, of course, there's always the DF incident
I've since learned a whole lot here.

I guess I'm one of the local sh&t disturbers and enjoy a good dissenting opinion.

Stick around and feel free to slam me at any time

Bank - any frequent posters who no longer have intros available are "old school".

Michael - yep. Time to do the dirty on these folks. Damn. I have a Grudge Match to complete also. Well hell, who says the family needs quality time this week?

oh i just found this thread today, i swear.

22, vegan 2 years this june, live in Ontario with my boyfriend of 6 years, roommate and cat who is currently purring on my lap watching me type.

let's see ummm i found VB like the day it switched over to the new site, i wasn't with any of the other sites everyone mentions, i just kinda found this one by fluke somehow.

currently unemployed. again. *grumble*

and hobbies are umm well i really have no life. i read, watch a lot of tv, play computer games and surf the net, but i occasionally go for long walks when it's warm out and hope to do a lot of that this year since where we now live has a gorgeous scenic river populated by geese, swans and various other birds

as far as beliefs go, feel free to call me a new age treehugger wacko

oh yeah, and i'm trying to start a magazine with a friend, about animal welfare and humane living.

Well, VeganKat assures me that I'm 'old skool' enough. (*sob*... and I always thought I was 'nu-wave'
)

My name is Stephen, I'm 20 years old, I live in the UK and I study Sociology at University. Fun fun funnnn!

I've been vegetarian for about 3/4 years, and vegan since last Summer-ish.

I like listening to music (anything from Beethoven to the Smashing Pumpkins.. and I.. err.. kinda have a soft spot for Prince), playing the guitar/piano, watching anime, sci-fi and horror movies, reading (Kerouac, Rushdie and J G Ballard are probably my favourite authors) and talking to the most wonderful girl in the world... who just so happens to be a VB member as well!

You know, Tame...though one part of me says "run!", the other part of me (the not so sane part) is a bit intrigued by you...hmmm, I wonder if this is truly a sign of total and complete madness??
