Today is my last day of summer vacation. My mom and I went through my room and cleaned it out. Sorted the clothes I don’t want or don’t wear any more, organized, and through out about 4 bags of garbage. This is the first year I have felt like I really, truly, like my wardrobe. Yes, it could use a few more jeans and kakis, but for what I do have, I feel like it really is me.(Not that I’m saying I’m superficial and I wouldn’t be who I was without my clothes.) I’ve gotten quite a bit of new clothes since school ended. Well I guess quite a bit can mean a lot of different things, but I got 5 cami soles, 4 shirts, and 2 dresses, plus 1 band concert/speech contest shirt. That is quite a large portion of my wardrobe and what’s left from last year are pants, hoodies, and a few t-shirts for wearing to bed and for those lazy days when I don’t care how I look. I went to auditions in one of my “new” outfits, and got a few gasps and looks of approval. Now just to force myself to take the time to put together outfits and do my hair and make-up and I’ll be set.

This summer I have neglected to wear my glasses, since I really don’t need them for things other than seeing the board and driving. It will take a little effort to remember to grab them, and to get used to the “glasses make-up” again.

As I think all of you know, I’m vegetarian. That makes school lunches just that much more difficult. Let me just say, I’m not a salad person. The only salad I really like is my grandma’s Mediterranean Strawberry salad, and a few select others on certain days. Seeing that is the only thing that is guaranteed to be meat free at my school, I have turned too school lunches. I found a cook book that I got for Christmas last year, that is aimed at kids, and I just kind of said, “Thanks,” and put it away for it to never see the light of the day. One night when I was having trouble sleeping I grabbed the cook book and found out that a whole third of it is dedicated to brown bagging it. They have a whole table with bag lunch ideas, and tons of recipes. For this, I’m really excited for lunch this year. I have already made my first day lunch. It’s “Cucumber Under Wraps” which is a tortilla, with cream cheese, with a quartered cucumber wrapped in the center. Then I have a strawberry yogurt, and a chocolate hermit cookie. Upon school shopping I got a thermos and juice containers, so I can bring my favorite V-8 Tropical Blend juice and once the weather gets nippy I can have warm soup!

I don’t really know how to end this post, seeing I always have had trouble with closing statements. I usually end up with two awkward sentences, and getting a low grade on the conclusion.

p.s. did anyone notice how my last “paragraph” was a pun?

On December 31, 2008 I had my last piece of meat. I havn’t had a piece since. If you didn’t already guess, I had it as my New Years Resoultion. Actually, a person I follow on Youtube decided to do it (breeisundercover) and I thought that it sounded like a good idea for me too do it too.

No, I wasn’t just being a follower. You see, I have been having trouble eating Chicken lately because of the bones. It just makes me sad, and not hungry to think about it. But my mom was getting mad when she would make chicken and I wouldn’t eat it. I didn’t want to be a hypocrit and be like, “i’m not eating chicken with bones in it anymore cuz it makes me think that it was living” so this was my best solution.

One of the BIGGEST things that bugs me is when people say “if you eat fish your not a vegetarian” That is NOT true. Their is an actual name for vegetarians who eat fish. If you didn’t already guess, I eat fish. But you have to remember, I live in a very closed minded small town. There would only be three places I could eat, and two of them my mom never goes to, so that really means only one. And It’s a chinese place, and there is only 1 vegetarian dish I like there.

Also, when going to the grocery store their isn’t many vegetarian premade meals. There of course is vegetarian “meat” but I don’t care for that all that much. I could just have homemade meals everyday, but my mom doesn’t have the time for that, and neither do I.

There are two main questions I get alot:

1. Do you drink milk and eat eggs? I am growing and need calcium, and if I didn’t have milk, than that means no chocolate, and I LOVE chocolate. And no eggs means no cake, cookies, any of that good stuff!

2. Is it hard? No it isn’t really. It is way easyer than I expected. The hardest part is school lunch, because our school isn’t very vegetarian friendly, and alot of mornings I’m too lazy too get together a lunch.

and a question that I want to awnser, just cuz I want people to know is:

1.What do you miss the most? It would definatly be broth and gravy, that may sound weird, but just the smell of it is so strong, and it makes eating soup hard. And my favorite food used to be Mashed potatos and gravy, and mashed potatos arn’t the same without gravy!!
