This whole dinner was vegetarian! I was very proud of myself when I decided to become a vegetarian. It’s been three months so far. What really surprises me is that some of my friends who were vegs before me aren’t anymore! One of my bestfriends (I’m on Skype with her right now!!) turned vegetarian, inspired by me. And then her father came home with KFC. Needless to say, she is no longer anti-meat.
It really bothers me how animals around the world are treated. In all fairness, most people that eat mean aren’t even aware of the atrocities that go on to put that meat on their plates. Let me open up your eyes to the problems:
1. The conditions/enclosings that farm animals are kept in are NOT nice.
2.Did you know that in dairy factories the chicks are hatched on a conveyor belt? The minute the employees determine the chicks’ sex, the females are tossed into bins for eggs and the males are tossed into chicken grinders. That’s right, CHICKEN GRINDERS. They are alive, and they’re tossed in there minutes after being brought into this world. Cruel, isn’t it?? And that’s not even the half of it.

This ‘bird hotel’ has so much character! It was put up a while ago by my family, in hopes of having a few visitors willing to rent. So far, nothing has stepped foot inside. I don’t know if it’s the thought of living in something man-made, or if they’ve heard bad things about our backyard! The run-down house in the background really adds to the photo; it’s like the little birdhouses are miniatures of the old abandoned house. My favorite one is the crooked blue house. I’m not sure what happened to it, but it makes the whole thing look tough.

I absolutely love this tree. It’s nothing special, just a solitary tree in my front yard. I think it’s just how well it lives, alone and peacefully, that stands out for me, makes me think of how as human beings, we lean on each other for support and never think “I could do this alone”. This tree right here, it proves that you CAN do it by yourself. When I look at it, I think of the tree of life, just like in The Lion King. (One of my all time favorite movies, by the way.) It’s just so different, something that mankind has to let itself be.

I woke up yesterday morning, and although it was late in the morning-er, lunchtime- I found this crow sitting up on a telephone wire seemingly contemplating life. (What there is to think about, I don’t know). There’s something about crows and blackbirds.. They just seem so beautiful and peaceful.

I live as life goes, waiting for the things that are supposed to happen, to happen. Listening to music, creating anything that I can, and documenting everything as I go with my camera! I hope you enjoy my writing and my photos.. Image
