Random note

A local vegan restaurant found my vegan recipe Instagram and personally invited me to stop by. I think I will bike there today! :)

Hahaha that made me laugh out loud.

Food doesn’t taste better or worse when documented by Instagram. Laughter is as genuine over Skype as it would be sharing a sofa. Pay attention. Take in nature, hold someone’s hand, read a book. But don’t ever apologize for snapping a photo of a sunrise after a hike, or blogging about the excitement of having a crush, or updating your goodreads account. All of these things are good and should be celebrated. Smile at strangers on the sidewalk and like your friends’ selfies. It’s all good for the human spirit.

What we do now is the exact same thing as painting a partner a portrait or keeping a diary, only with today’s technology of course, if you read on a computer why wouldn’t you write on one? Everyone who shames this either does it or does a version of it, relax, blogging doesn’t hurt anyone, really, enjoy it! I encourage keeping a journal in any form.

Acid attack survivors in India model new clothing range for powerful photoshoot

Survivors of acid attacks in India have become the face of a new clothing range designed by a woman who had acid thrown in her face while she was asleep four years ago.Delhi-based designer Rupa and her friends Rita, Sonam, Laxmi and Chanchal modelled the clothes from her new range, Rupa Designs, for photographer Rahul Saharan.

Rupa suffered extensive injuries when her stepmother threw acid in her face while she was sleeping in 2008.

She was allegedly left without any medical aid for six hours before her uncle found her and transported her to hospital, where she underwent eleven operations and spent three months being cared for.

this is so powerful

Bless them and their beautiful spirits

Random note: severe allergies

I’m not one to sympathize for those who have deadly severe allergies and don’t watch out for themselves. As none of you know, I’m deathly allergic to peaches, the guest she last time I ate one it put me in the ER, I got a rash everywhere and stopped breathing. I have to read the whole back of anything with fruit, sweetner, vegetables, be it salsa, candy, wine, you name it. To the extent that I can’t even use a container that has had peach juice in it unless it’s been washed twice. Yesterday however it took it up a level when I didn’t read a label for waffles that had peach juice in them. In all fairness who the fuck has ever thought of putting peach juice in waffles? I was on break at work and thank gawd the employee mentioned it before I swallowed the sample I was eating. You know you’re panicked when a stranger hands you a bottle of water they were drinking from and you make zero hesitation to drink the whole thing. I did have almost instant trouble swallowing and was forcing myself to stay calm. I guess even bread requires reading now. I should also really finally get new health insurance and get one of those pens that gluten and peanut allergic people get because holy shit.

be an atheist, be a christian, be buddhist, be straight, be gay, be cisgender, be transgender, be non-binary, be carnivore, be vegan, be whatever the hell you want to be but don’t be an asshole is this so hard to understand

Uh. Yeah. Because being non-vegan is the only thing on this list that is electively excessively destructive by default, no way out of it. Stealing native South American’s homeland, enslaving Mexicans with no health care and no way out, stealing non-fair trade grain from Africans, killing Indians in leather production co products, and driving every animal in sight to extinction? Yeah, veganism isn’t flawless because you can’t live a life with no impact but you don’t get to not try just because of that. Pretty sure that eating meat passes as being an asshole.

Pretty sure they meant to say “weren’t  recorded”, I miss when this blog was all facts written with proper grammar.

that thigh gap trend is so disgusting

How? People can weigh whatever they want. If you want to play the “that can lead to health risks!” card, so can obesity, so can over exercising, just like under eating or bulimia can, and guess what, it’s not your health and it’s not contagious. Thinking only thin is pretty or thinking big is beautiful are two sides of the same coin, it puts looks first, don’t, put health first and looks never.

Exercise helps me a ton with depression too, when I had a treadmill I would walk for 10 minutes every time I felt bad, now I bike to work so that helps too!

Reason 589026 proving Kristen Stewart is gay.

Yes, of course, being defensive of disrespect towards women if you’re also one means you definitely aren’t straight. All that really teaches is for straight or closeted girls to not defend each other out if insecurity and for non-straight girls to think what they are is an insult. *sigh*

Only the problem with this exact food is in the East, not the West, but it’s a start.
