I understand that many people see this lifestyle as a fad, an unrealistic choice which couldn’t possibly be sustained in reality. In this modern day, how can one person’s change of lifestyle possibly help the environment? For this post, I promise not to go into any gory details about what happens to the animals and all of that because everyone knows how meat gets onto our plates. I respect any opinion that may be had about it and I respect every lifestyle choice that may be followed, I believe it’s your life and you’re free to live it however your heart desires. Why go vegan? Coming from a place where we love our meat, I’ve never really worried about the moral or environmental implications of what I was eating although I was always aware of…

As I write this post I’m sitting on a train. No, not one of those lovely ones that pass through the countryside to display rolling hills and fluffy white sheep grazing. The underground rather. Personally, I prefer the seats in the overground but these ones are nice too, a bit more crowded, and the journey is a bit louder but I’ve come to find that I enjoy sitting on these seats, watching everyone come in and out and wondering where they’re all off to.

As I write this, I’m taking a little study break because I had a lecture today that left me with the worst headache, can I get a #relatable. Looking around my dorm room, it’s definitely not as bare as when I first moved in, I’ve framed a few pictures, I’ve got the obligatory fairy lights dangling on my walls and my desk is strewn with books and papers. I may or may not have half a packet of Pringles temptingly sitting in a corner but that’s besides the point! I also may or may not be in the process of figuring out how I’m going to get a particularly good looking guy to notice me and reply to my message but that’s also besides the point. I can officially say that I’ve been here for…
