"For the first time, let's just allow ourselves to be whoever we are, and it'll get better, okay?" (-Garden State)
This much I do know. I'll fight to the death for the people I love. I am a voice for the voiceless through my actions. I sing. Though I also like to think, I'm a feeler. I am fiercely proud of being unnaturally green. I live consciously and cruelty free. In the silly stories of my friends, I've been cast as Aphrodite, Helen of Troy and Cosette. They insist this is because I'm affectionate and not because I'm overly free with love ;) . I have long hair and enjoy being barefoot. I hug trees. I have great creativity locked away inside somewhere.
I'm 25, and finished my undergraduate degree in psychology at the University of Western Ontario. When I started, I opted for the science degree, assuming that it would leave more options open. Six years and a move back to Toronto later, I'm no closer to figuring out where I want to be, but that's okay; I'd rather drift for a while.
"Just when you think that a person is just a backdrop for the rest of the universe, watch them and see that they laugh, they cry, they tell jokes ... they're just friends waiting to be made." -Dr. Jeffrey Borenstein
Isn't man an amazing animal? He kills wildlife - birds, kangaroos, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice, foxes, and dingoes - by the millions in order to protect his domestic animals and their feed.
Then he kills domestic animals by the billions and eats them. This in turn kills man by the millions because eating all those animals leads to degenerative and fatal health conditions, like heart disease, kidney disease and cancer.
So then man tortures and kills millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases. Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger an malnutrition because food that they could be eating is being used to fatten domestic animals.
Meanwhile, some people are dying of laughter at the absurdity of man, who kills so easily and so violently, and once a year sends out cards praying for "Peace On Earth".
