I was born in 1964!

Okay not really, but this generational quiz says so. πŸ˜›

To be fair to the quiz, I didn’t really recognize a lot of the famous singers or athletes, and for the toys, I might have picked very ‘old’ toys seeing as I picked the little kitchen set.

I was not a cool or up-to-date sort of child, and TV, music or any idolization of singers, athletes or celebrities was not on my mind.

This made for a very culturally-isolated kind of childhood which made me quite unpopular seeing as I was just not into the same things.

I was too busy in my own dream world with books and chocolate bars. πŸ™‚

Take the “Which generation do you belong to” quiz!

Big thanks to Geek in Heels for the link

UPDATE: Now it’s 1979

I took it again, trying to pick what I remembered as being cool as a kid and not what I wanted but they still got it wrong, although it’s getting warmer to my real age.

So which generation do you belong to?

Totally unrelated, but this post on Vegan Eating and how Voracious Vegan is a Vegan no longer, really broke my heart.

(No I’m not a vegan.)

Many of you know that I have recently been struggling for the first time in my life with health problems. When I discovered that my problems were a direct result of my vegan diet I was devastated.

2 months ago, after learning the hard way that not everyone is capable of maintaining their health as a vegan, I made one of the most difficult decisions of my life and gave up veganism and returned to eating an omnivorous diet.

My health immediately returned. This experience has been humbling, eye-opening, and profoundly transformative.

I firmly believe that there are many who thrive being Β vegan or a vegetarian, and the choices they make are good ones.

For Tasha, she really gave it a shot. She tried hard, she felt sick (and perhaps a bit self-righteous by her own admission) not eating animal meat, but her body told her otherwise.

I am sorry she couldn’t follow her passion and her belief, and this is not a triumphant: HEY LOOK, VEGANISM SUCKS post, it is more of a please be careful and do what is best for you and your body, whatever the case may be.

I don’t think it’s right for anyone to tell a meat-eater they’re shameful and wrong for eating meat (stone me!), as it is just as wrong in her post for other vegans to have told her: hey you’re just doing veganism wrong and you aren’t trying hard enough.

It’s like getting out of debt, or being a minimalist: there is no wrong or right way, as long as the path leads you to where you want to go, and you try your best with the information that you have, with a good conscience and heart.
