Hi Lucy,
I know what it is like to be alone, and I can relate to you so much
except for the fact that I am no longer in college and I wasn't vegan in
college. Even now, just living life, I feel alone and it's more than
just being vegan, but I am just going to talk about the vegan part for
now. It's a different lifestyle than, what about 97% of the rest of the
population? It's not easy. When I lived in North Jersey, it was great,
they had so many health food stores up there and vegan/vegetarian
restaurants, even most of the supermarkets had a nice selection of vegan
items, and maybe most people still were not vegetarians, at least I
didn't know of many who were hunters and fishermen. Since I moved to
South Jersey, right outside of Atlantic City, not far from the ocean,
practically all the guys are fishermen if not also hunters. People are
not health conscious. There is one health food store that is about 15
minutes from me and the only one around, but the prices are ridiculously
high. I mean RIDICULOUSLY HIGH. I really can't even afford to shop
there (I buy alot online). And with Atlantic City being such a popular
town, with 11 casinos (most of whom have at least 4-5 restaurants plus
many fast food shops), can you believe there is not even ONE vegetarian
restaurant or at the very least a "health conscious" restaurant???
There is not one vegetarian restaurant in the whole county! People are
just not evolved as they are in North Jersey, can you believe I actually
work with people who don't own a computer? I have lived here for less
than a year and a half and have not had a single date, and I can't
imagine dating any of the guys down here. I think I need to get out of
here. So I know what you mean when you say you feel lonely. I know you
said you have alot of friends online, but if you want to be pen pals,
just let me know.
Choosing a lifestyle that is different from the majority is difficult no
matter what that alternative lifestyle is. I have to admit, one thing
that's hard for me to deal with is these discs in the earlobes that have
started to become popular. Yuk! No offense to anyone, I just have a
hard time looking at that! Does that mean I am getting old? Oh no!!!
