Connect with vegetarian and vegan friends from all over the world.
So it's move in day for college tomorrow. I am going to a new school this semester, which is much larger than the one I previously attended, so I am a little nervous about that. They do serve vegan food though, yay! That means there will be other vegans there for me to be friends with. I was the only vegan at my other school, so I didn't really make many friends. It is very hard for me to be friends with a non-vegetarian. I respect them as living beings, but I distance myself from exposure to their moral and ethical choices. I can feel the negative energy of a meat eater when I am in their presence.
I hear they have philosophy clubs, psychology clubs etc., so hopefully they have a vegetarian/vegan club. That would be awesome! Since I am a psychology and religious studies major, I am concerned with the moral and ethical behaviors of humans, and what causes them to be the way they are. I want to know why people behave the way they do, how they justify it, and most of all how to influence and change it. I will be a word I like to use: "change agent." Sometimes, when one want's to see change in the world, they must go into the place where change is needed and transform it's beliefs and ideologies from the inside. Sneaky, but it works.
Anyway, I hope all my veggie friends are doing well. I may not be on as much for a little bit, until I get settled in. Changing the world is a big job, but as Mahatma Gandhi said: "Be the change you want to see in the world."
