I am often asked the same questions over and over. That’s fine, but I thought a FAQ would be handy for any new eyes that are looking at this blog. Please feel free to ask me any questions, my ask box is always open!
Q: How old are you? When were you born?
A: I am 23 years old. My birthday is August. 23rd.
Q: How tall are you? How much do you weigh?
A: I am about 5’ 8”. My weight doesn’t matter.
Q: Do you have any animals?
A: Yes. My family and I combined have three cats and one dog. One of my cats, Lily, is missing though. I also had two rats (RIP) and my brother has a fish.
Q: Do you live at home?
A: Due to mental health issues, I am currently living at home
Q: What do you do for a living?
A: I am a Licensed Practical Nurse, but do not have a full time job. I work as a casual right now (4 days a week) for the Health Authority here.
Q: Does Nursing conflict with your veganism and other views?
A: I really dislike how much medication is given out and I really wish nursing was more holistic. It is a lot different then I thought and although I love caring for people, its not my passion.
Q: What would you rather do then Nursing?
A: I would love to pursue a career where I will be working with animals. I hope to someday have my own rescue animal sanctuary.
Q: How long have you been vegan?
A: I have been vegan since the winter of 2008.
Q: Why are you vegan?
A: I am vegan because I love animals and would NEVER hurt one. I also am a huge believer and voice for animal rights, it is so dear to my heart, and I want to change the world for all animals. No being should suffer<3
Q: What do you eat in a day?
A: I do not answer this question because it varies so much. I eat fresh fruit, vegetables, gf pasta, daiya, quinoa, beans, hummus, greens, squash, granola, almond milk, dark chocolate, nut butter, the list goes on… it really just depends what I feel like eating.
Q: Are you single?
Q: What religion are you?
A: I do not believe in religion, I am a Gnostic Atheist.
Q: Why are you an Atheist?
A: Because Religion is controlling and I believe it is used as a form of oppression. It is outdated and a lie. I also do not believe there is any type of higher power or god above us. We evolved, we were not magically created. Nothing like that exists and its silly to think such things in a universe so vast. Go outside tonight and look at the stars. They are all billions of kilometers away and for them to shine bright enough for use to see is amazing. To even think we are the only ones out there is crazy. Our universe is so vast, I can’t even fathom it.
Q: Are your animals vegan?
A: No. Our dog is not vegan, he is on a special vet diet for his gastrointestinal tract. Our cats are not vegan because I do not believe in feeding cats that way. My rats were vegan, though :3
Q: Where do you live?
A: On Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada.
Q: Do you have any tattoos or piercings?
A: Yes, I have six tattoos and 7 piercings.
Q: Where? What of?
A: I have a 3/4 sleeve (unfinished) on my left arm. I have a elephant on my right forearm, ahimsa in sanskrit on my left wrist, a faded ‘V’ on my left thumb, and my mom and dads birthday numbers 23:01:62 and 25:12:66 on the outer sides of my wrists.
Q: Do you take supplements?
A: I use Vega one health optimizer powder and I do receive monthly b12 shots (not due to a deficiency, its to help my nervous system and muscles)
Q: Where are your piercings?
A: I have my ears pierced, an industrial on my left ear, my nose pierced on my left nostril, I have a microdermal between my collar bones and I have two microdermals on the nape of my neck. They are horizontally placed, not vertically. :)
