Ah, I'm a long-time vegetarian and computer geek. I've been vegetarian since I was about nine years of age. I've been through many kinds of vegetarianism due to various factors (money and family problems, access to information and new foods, etc).<br><br><br><br>
I'm currently attending a local community college and earning a transfer degree, after which I'll be attending a four-year university to get my BS. I'm having some difficulty settling on a major right now. I'm a Computer Science major; however, I've been thinking about changing my major for a while now. I'm considering changing to some type of Engineering, possibly doing a double major of CS and Engineering, or maybe doing a complete change and going into Veterinary Science. I'm currently in my second semester and taking 18 credit hours, with Calculus I taking up most of my time.<br><br><br><br>
I found this forum a few weeks ago when I was Googling something vegetarian-related, but I was a little hesitant to join because I didn't feel I had enough time. Although, I find when I have a spare moment I'm coming here to read what other people have said, so I decided to join despite my shyness.<br><br><br><br>
As my most recent form of vegetarianism, I've been a vegan for about two years, although I still find myself making mistakes here and there. My family and "friends" aren't very supportive, but my family has gotten better over time and I find myself meeting new friends who are acceptive of my vegetarianism. My father recently lost his job and has been looking for a new one to no avail, so money's a little tight. Sometimes my family will pick up something at the store they think is vegan, but has milk or eggs in it, and because of the money situation I'll end up eating it. I do the best I can with what I have. I've never had to eat meat since I was nine, but I had one mistake once where I accidentally ate some meat that was in these beans... that happened to be expired and I got very sick. That was an interesting afternoon I spent with my head in the toilet.<br><br><br><br>
Well, I suppose that's it for now! Hopefully I'll get to chat with everyone soon. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">
