Hello there! Sorry for the long disappearance, I’ve no excuse. I was very busy but there’s always time, I’m learning that now!
I’m half way through my course which is scary but exciting at the same time. Also I’ve had 2 out of 4 offers for university, I’ve yet to have an offer from my top choice but hopefully it’s in the near future. ^_^
And yes, I’m vegan again! I’ve always wanted to go back, and this time I’ve convinced my boyfriend to do it with me so there are 2 new vegans in the world. It’s not like I’ll have to make too many alterations in my diet anyway, I just have to be more cautious when eating out, I suppose.
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. ^^
