They say the eyes are the windows to the soul, but this blog is one of the few to mine.

I'm Kristin. I'm 22 years old. I'm the kind of person who looks down while walking to try to avoid stepping on bugs because I believe that every life is precious. Animals and my loved ones are what my heart beats for. I'm vegan because I respect and love all beings. Stitching words together on paper is my therapy and passion. All I really want to do is to make a difference in the world.

This is a step in the right direction.


Important reminder: Everyone on the internet is a real person.

Go read this. It’s really important.

Be kind to one another.

All I want is someone who talks vegan to me with proper grammar.

That’s all it takes to make me happy.

"Mostly" vegan isn’t vegan.
"Sort of vegan" isn’t vegan.
"Vegan but I eat honey" isn’t vegan.
"Vegan but I buy and wear leather/fur/wool" isn’t vegan.
"Vegan except for the occasional egg" isn’t vegan.

Stop it.

The reason I think people don’t listen to this criticism is…


What I mean when I say “I can’t do that”- Anxiety Version:

  • I am unable to do that
  • I am too stressed out to do that
  • I cannot face the humiliation of attempting to do that
  • My body will physically not allow me to do that
  • I am on the verge of a panic attack
  • I cannot do that

What people hear:

  • I am unwilling to do that
  • I am just shy
  • I am overreacting
  • I am lazy
  • I need to get more experience in social situation to help my anxiety
  • I need a push
  • I don’t want to do that

“Everything has already been said and done. But, then, if this is so, why do we need more poems in the world? I once read a Jane Hirshfield interview where she said something quite wonderful. She essentially said we have to keep writing because it’s every generation’s job to put in the present vernacular poems that are called upon for rites of passage, such as poems read at weddings or funerals. I hadn’t thought of this before. Your ordinary citizen should be able to go to the library and find a poem written in the current vernacular, and the responsibility for every generation of writers is to make this possible. We must, then, rewrite everything that has ever been written in the current vernacular, which is really what the evolution of literature is all about. Nothing new gets said but the vernacular keeps changing.”

Pushing your own boundaries sexually to please your partner is not an expression of ‘love’. Making yourself uncomfortable, making sexual ‘sacrifices’ (i.e. engaging in kinks you’re not comfortable doing) is not being a good partner. Being a good partner does not involve making yourself sexually uncomfortable or letting your partner coerce you into doing things you don’t want to do, and don’t ever let someone try to convince you otherwise.
