Have you ever thought about what you're eating when you sit at the dinner table and eat that huge plate of ribs and steak and all that good stuff? well if you think the farms are fine and dandy you should think again. USDA choice beef usually comes from cows with cancerous sores and deformities. Chicken farms are so filled with the smell of ammonia that the chickens get their lungs and skin burned off. If you were to slaughter your dog or cat it would be illegal. If you slaughter a cow or a pig then it's socially acceptable. I find it unacceptable that violence is the basis of some of our eating habits. And so does the Dalai Lama!! haha

I think that we should live life to the fullest and let others do the same. We should never make fun of people who are "weird", simply because you don't know their home situation and what their problems are deep down. Plus, if you make fun of people you just spread negative feelings. So maybe something to think about next time you think something negative about somebody else.

Well so far, i've been vegetarian for like a week now, and its not even that hard. I just eat fruits, veggies, clif bars, cereal, soymilk, and TONS of yogurt! this week i had a long 3 day weekend, and it has so far been full of work. homework, laundry, vacuuming, the whole shabang. I love blogging because you can just spill out your mind in these things, man. I love school so far, and my grades could use some help, but i mean, thats why im doing so much work this weekend. but my dad says its better to have a weekend of work than a whole summer of work. Which i definitely agree upon. I had to write this paper on my own odyssey in life, (we just finished homer's odyssey.) and i wrote about my moving around to different schools and struggles in making new friends. I also said that if we get to the root of our struggles then we can overcome them. I love Buddha, don't you? haha... I always try to write deep thoughts into my blog, but right now i cant think of any, so hopefully next time!

So i've been thinking about going vegetarian for a while now, but i understand that its going to be a hard thing to do since i've been raised on meat. So im asking your opinion on the subject. I just don't like the thought of mass slaughter farms keeping animals standing around all day waiting their cruel death. As of right now, i've just decided to eat meat sparingly to be mindful of other living things. but should I go all the way? Comment please! :)
