    Vegan Thanksgiving Recap

    This is a little late, but there is still one day left in November so I guess it’s okay. Thanksgiving can be stressful for vegans or those on a plant based diet. Your family might not be supportive or could pressure you to eat animal products. If I am being honest, I had some of these feelings too. My family has no problem with my vegan lifestyle, but I still had a little anxiety about the holiday. Turns out, it is really easy to “veganize” thanksgiving food. I was so grateful because my parents made all of the sides vegan friendly. I didn’t make a tofurkey this year, so I…

    October Overview

    This month has been go, go, go. I want to apologize for not posting very much this month. Blogging isn’t always my top priority. Getting that out of the way, I thought I would share some of what I have been up to lately. I have been spending a lot of time outdoors and a lot of time stuck in the classroom this month. This year my academic program has been a little more strenuous than normal. To become a social worker, you have to have a set amount of unpaid agency experience. One of the places I volunteer is a home for developmentally disabled adults. It just so happens…
