Sorry for the lack of posts - I’ve been very busy with school work and actually having a social life for once!
Plus I always take my photos in natural light, which is difficult to do when breakfast is eaten when it’s dark, lunch is at college and dinner is in the dark too! :(
Hope you all are well, especially those applying to university around this time! I’ve just sent off my application (again) so I definitely understand what you’re going through! Good to luck to you all ^_^
Have you experienced any negative backlash from stopping your vegan diet? or was everyone pretty positive?
I have indeed! Plenty of people were negative towards my decision. And not even in a subtle way either - it was direct, intense hatred. I thought that was insane! These people didn’t know me and wanted me to burn alive! D:
The worst part about vegan culture is the militant vegans. Because of them people naturally assume you’re forceful and vicious if you don’t eat meat, let alone if you’re completely vegan too. It wasn’t as if I’d suddenly decided to go on a culling spree - I’d thought long and hard about my decision to eat eggs (and very occasionally dairy) again.
I would like to go vegan again, however, when I’m completely funding myself and no longer have to rely on the crutch that is my parents and their income. Until that point, I’m happy with my diet! :)
Hello! Well, technically I’m at a college as I’m doing a foundation degree for now. But it’s going well, thank you! No horrendous flatmates… as I’m at home this time, haha. We cover absolutely everything in this course so naturally there are things I’m not going to like, but my course leader is 100% more enthusiastic than my A Level art teacher which is fantastic.
The course itself is pretty intense, hence why I haven’t been posting very much at all on here (sorry for that!). I’ve managed to skew the theme in my favour so I’m doing quite a lot of illustrative work right now, to hopefully go in my portfolio. Soon it’s time to apply for universities all over again, ahh! D:
I have to scan my sketchbook in, so there’s a digital copy in case I lose the physical one. Once that’s all up I’ll leave a link here if anyone is interested. ^^
I’m so sorry! That wasn’t meant as an insult! I’ve found since trying to become more healthy, I’ve less common interests with my friends, such as when they go crazy with drinking at weekends etc. and I’m struggling to find people with common interests, so it gets kind of lonely :/
Oh! No, it’s okay! I’m sorry for perceiving it that way! My mistake! <3
I personally have never been in to the whole drinking/partying scene but I’m a pretty cool person (I’d like to think!) without those things, so I simply arrange to meet up with my friends during the day just to hang out. Sometimes I do feel like I’m missing out when I see pictures on facebook of people out clubbing but that’s only for a fleeting second after I remember how awkward I feel in those situations, haha.
I’m lucky that a large portion of my friends aren’t obsessed with the ‘getting wasted’ scene, but it seems yours are and I’m sorry you’re feeling lonely! It’s taken a few years to gather the group of friends I currently have, but I can assure you in time you’ll find people. If you’re at uni - try joining a few societies! That’s where I met people who weren’t only interested in drinking. Hang on in there, I promise you’ll find awesome people with similar interests soon enough! <3
(and if not - pop me a message non anon! I can always do with more friends! :D)
