Thinking of Family

With that huge Blizzard hitting the northeast tonight and tomorrow, I can’t help but worry about my family and friends who live up there.

I know we all survived the blizzard of 2011… or 2012, I don’t remember the exact year.  Either way, we did go a while without power.  I just hope this time it’s a little easier for everyone up there and that they all stay safe and warm.

Not much to this post, sorry.  Just wanted to express my concern for everyone in the blizzard’s path.

But if any of my siblings, cousins, friends, etc. from back home are reading this… I love you all and stay safe.


Stop the Stereotypes

Stereotypes seem to be everywhere.  Like, really, they’re everywhere.

Growing up I lived in a nice town in Connecticut, so people always assumed I was a fancy, rich kid… well okay, that’s kind of true, but I never acted like I was better than anyone because of the town I grew up in or the fact my family has money.  But over the last two months I’ve experienced a new stereotype…

… for being vegan.

When people see that I promote myself as a vegan they automatically assume that I’m an animal rights activist who will start preaching to them about not eating animals because it’s not right.  Well, news flash, I’m not exactly an animal rights activist… I’m just trying to be healthier than I was before.  Not to say that saving animals isn’t a bonus to being a vegan, but to me that’s all it is – a bonus.

So just stop with the stereotyping, it’s just not cool.

And it’s annoying.
