A Vegan Girl On Her Life Journey :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hey everyone! How was your thanksgiving?

Mine was better than I thought it would be, so that was good.

My family went to our relative’s house, and had a nice dinner. Since I brought my own food, my aunt was like “?”. I told her (and everyone else) that I was vegan. And no one gave me crap about it, which made me sooooooooooooooooooooo happy! XD In fact, my cousin (girl – 23) seemed interested in veg*nsim, and she asked me lots of questions! I was so proud and happy to be a vegan. X)

Me and my cousin!

Ha ha, my cousin Nicolas,ย and I don’t look anything alike! But that’s okay ๐Ÿ™‚ He’s a cute 8 year old who wants to be in the army for a career! Cute eh?

So thanksgiving was fun ๐Ÿ™‚

By the way, has anyone tried this?

Trader Joe’s Very Green juice Blend! Very fruity and green veggie-y! Yum!

Tell me, how was your Thanksgiving?

Thanks for coming! ๐Ÿ™‚

Wow! I want/need more time!! XD

ย Hi people! How are you doing on this amazingly short week? Who’s excited for Thanksgivingย  Black Friday?! I am!!! XD

Okay, so, I just wrote the BEST college essay I can ever write. (I mean, with voice, character, and passion) It’s good to be vegan; it’s handy when you have to write about yourself and when you don’t really do anything fancy (like sports). Thank-you peta2 for real!!

It’s so cool how people on the peta2 board can become friends online! I was really excited to get in touch with my new friend, Michal, with an awesome blog! (go check it out! http://lilearthmuffin.wordpress.com/) Lovely!!

Vegan Bagel Burger!

 

Mmm. That’s my BF and my lunch!ย  I needed to make something creative, so here it is, out of the blue!

Okay, totally changing subject, but sometimes, it’s really scary who you can meet online. Meeting someone you know on a “What? Why would you be on this?” page is scary. Just happened right now, and I just think it’s plain scary. That’s the downfall of modern technology…

Any who, I’m finished with part I of this HUUUUUUGE present project (not “presentation” project), and about 2/3 of it to go! I hope that person likes it, because I’ve never made anything so massive! Picture is to come as soon as the person gets the present ๐Ÿ™‚ย  (Which is hopefully some time next week or the week after!)

Just a few more hours of school, and we’re out! Plan? To submit all my college apps and draw!

Qsย of theย day: What are you going to do? And where are you going for Black Friday Shopping if you’re planning to go?

Thanks for coming! ๐Ÿ™‚

Computer/Internet is so addicting :)

I know you know what I mean. I can’t get off it!! (What am I doing when I should be working on my Spanish stuff?!)

Oh well, that’s okay. I’ll find time some day…Hopefully at least ๐Ÿ™‚

It’s amazingly cold here, and it’s raining like crazy! What’s up with the weather?? Are we going to even make it to 2012???

Trader Joe's Chocolate!

Dang…Trader Joe’s has the best chocolates!! And their cream-filled cookies are soooooooo good too!

Trader Joe's Joe-Joe's!

I can tell that I’m addicted to chocolate. Man they’re good!! XD Who ever came up with the thought of chocolate gets a big hug and a high-five! Go Ancient Civilization!

Almost two months being vegan, I really think that practicing veganism is easy. All you need to do is eliminate animal-derived stuff, and that’s actually pretty easy. I was never a meat freak, so giving up meat wasn’t hard. Fish, eggs, and milk wasn’t that a problem either, so it was really easy to go vegan. Just the process of speaking up to your parents about it is a toughy.

Oh, and I should say. My BF is trying to go vegan! (At least vegan as he can) I think that’s really nice of him to do ๐Ÿ™‚ He gets a hug for that too! *hug* I have a feeling that more and more people are going veg*n these days!

And my English teacher was so nice today ๐Ÿ™‚ She knows that I’m a proud vegan, so when we got candy, she was carefully reading the ingridients in the lollipop and gave me the one that was safe to eat ๐Ÿ™‚ I just think that was extremely nice of a teacher to do that for their student.

Wow! It’s almost Thanksgiving, isn’t it? Hmm….first vegan Thanksgiving… What are you all going to make??

I hope we can all be thankful for something this Thanksgiving!

& like always, thanks for stopping by! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

Time is interesting…

Don’tย you think? Sometimes you feel like there’s no time, but sometimes it’s amazingly long. Weird, huh?

Today’s one of those days where I actually don’t have any assigned homework that I need to turn in for creditย ๐Ÿ˜€ (except the reading for AP Gov, which is pretty long) ๐Ÿ˜› Just need to get those college essays edited by people so I can FINALLY SUBMIT it! XD Oh well, I’ll polish it up later…(later?)

Okey okey, so I was wondering what to do with my thing of unused clothes that I got. I want to make something useful out of it, but I don’t have a fancy sewing machine, so I have to do it by hand. Anyone have a good idea? Anything would be appriciated, because I really don’t want it just sitting there! (^_^);; (I really want to make my own shoes out of scratch…that acutally sounds fun…Hmm)

Time to show some art!

Nugget Plushie!

It was for my BF returning from the Caribbean ๐Ÿ™‚ (Finally. Wait, did I say I missed him? Blah) I was going to put it in his locker to ask him to Tolo, but on the second thought, I don’t go to dances…So this is a-okay ๐Ÿ˜€

And my art project that has to do with Animal Rights turned out rad! I will put it up some time next year. (because it’s an AP project and I want to put it up AFTER all the AP hassel is over) ๐Ÿ™‚ Man, art is fun! XD

Ahh,ย the radio is talking about Christmas stuff already!! I really want them to play their Christmas songs!!! Lots of people are becoming impacient!

Ooh! And has anyone checked out the quiz on the side of my blog? It’s a test to see what kind of vegetarian you are. It’s pretty fun, so you should all try it! ๐Ÿ˜€ I was 100% militant vegan (*surprise-surprise*) What were your results?

Thanks for coming! ๐Ÿ™‚

Lonely School Lunch…Oh well!

Since my BF is gone until Sunday (went on a cruise to the Caribbean), I had lunch alone. (Not alone because I ate during class, but still) Oh well. I got my college applications done, so I’m pretty happy about that! (I’m just optimistic) ๐Ÿ˜€

So here’s the lunch on Friday: Avocado, Tofurkyย Ham, & ย Melted Cheese Sandwich!

P1000421

Yum!

It’s pretty dirty if you eat it in class and trying to hide the fact that you’re eating because it oozes out all over! But it’s good, so it’s a-okay! X) The microwave is amazing, don’t you think? It’s good for melting cheese if you have a broken oven! ๐Ÿ˜€

And for dessert, a little bit of Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate is awesome…

P1000422

1 pound is A LOT!

Man…This Pound Plus Dark Chocolate takes forever to finish! (^^);; It’s still sitting in my fridge waiting to be eaten!

It’s sad that my BF is gone, but I seriously got lots of stuff done (Yeay!!!), so it’s cool. (that doesn’t mean I’m not sad, but being negative doesn’t get me anywhere, so yeah. And there’s always a plus side in life, you know!)

What’s your favorite vegan lunch?

Thanks for coming! ๐Ÿ™‚

Q’s and A’s today!

Heyyyyy! How are you today?

Where I live, it was sunny, then it rained like crazy, and it stopped. (and it’s raining again. Oh well, this is a rainy city, you know!) ย ๐Ÿ˜€ Crazy weather, crazy world. Cool! ๐Ÿ˜€

I get some questions about my crafts that I post on here. So, I’m going to answer some of them! ๐Ÿ™‚ :

  1. “Do you sell the button or the tote bag?” -> Sorry, no.
  2. “Would you make buttons or tote bags and sell them?” -> I would if you live near me, but other than that, no. Sorry.
  3. “How did you make the button?” -> Bought buttons where you can put pictures inside at a craft store, drew pictures from the peta2 stickers, and put them inside the button. ๐Ÿ™‚
  4. “How did you make the tote bag?” -> Got a Wii tote bag (any plastic tote bag should work.), stickered it, and covered it with clear tape twice (or more ifย  the edges are falling off).
  5. “How about making a nugget plushie next?” -> I’m thinking of it, but I need yellow cloth (^_^)

So yeah! I LOVE art and being crafty, because that’s who I am! I’m an artist ๐Ÿ™‚ More art and/or crafty stuff will come up in the future! ๐Ÿ˜€

Moving on now ๐Ÿ™‚ Since I get to make my own dinner sometimes, I made avocado sushi and vegan quesadillas!

P1000420

First Avocado Sushi I ever made!

It was pretty good, but I prefer straight rice ๐Ÿ™‚ Any suggestions on what else to put in other than avocados?

And here’s the quesadilla!

P1000419

First quesadilla too!

Ingredients:

  • Avocado (make it pasty)
  • Zucchini (1/4 of it or so. Mince them and cook for a little)
  • Tofurky ham (any type works. )
  • Vegan Cheese (I used rice cheese. It’s really good)

Steps:

  1. Spread the avocado paste on to the tortilla.
  2. Put the tofurky ham and zucchini.
  3. Cover it with vegan cheese and another tortilla.
  4. Microwave for a 1-2 min.
  5. Dive in!

I love quesadillas! Especially vegan ones, because they’re guilt-free! XD But it’s STRONGLY recommended to have salsa for a Mexican taste! (Ketchup + minced onions and lemon juice would probably pull it off) ๐Ÿ˜€

What’s your favorite non-American recipe?

Thanks for visiting! ๐Ÿ™‚

Peta2 Creativeness!

Wow! Was I that busy not being able to update this?!

I guess I was then. Oh well ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s senior year anyways. (Senioritis is coming! Ahhhhhhhh!!!) :O

How was halloween for you? Did you go trick-or-treating? I followed my little brother and my BF came with me. It was a-okay fun ๐Ÿ™‚

Though I just said I was busy, I still had time to be peta2 artsy!

P1000414

My Buff Sketch Book! ๐Ÿ˜€

ย I had lots of stickers and I didn’t know what to do with them. It’s pretty and now you can play mini checkers or mini chess on it! ๐Ÿ˜€

Wait, here’s more!

P1000412

My BF's DSi was stickered!! Muwahahahaha! XD

I don’t have a DS, but I needed it to play the game that only works on a DS (*hint hint*), so I borrowed it. It’s more “mine” than his, but I think he’s cool with that ๐Ÿ˜€ (At least I hope he is!) (^^);;

And one more! Voila!

P1000416

Nugget Earrings! XD

Oooooooooooooooooohhhh yeah!! That’s me being crafty with peta2!! All I did was traced nugget (x2), colored it, and made it into earrings! Pretty easy, trust me ๐Ÿ™‚

So this is what I do when I procrastinate have time! (And p.s: My peta2 tote bag was mentioned in the peta2 blog today! I was soooooooooooooooooooooooo happy!) X)

But to tell everyone, on the blog it says I’m vegetarian, but I’m VEGAN! (That was done when I was still a vegetarian so that’s why) ๐Ÿ™‚ And I LOVE it!! Veganism rocks!! XD

What do you do when you have time? Do you get artsy with peta2 stuff (or in general)?

Thanks to all that stopped by! ๐Ÿ™‚
