I’m so sorry for my absence! Everything has been up and down and all over the place. And I really do mean everything. Juggling work and uni hasn’t been such a big deal – but my own inner demons? Yep. They’ve been planting the usual seeds of doubt, lies and hatred deep within my mind.
I don’t have much to say in this post, as opposed to my last one where I described my decisions behind adopting a vegan lifestyle. That doesn’t make it a rant. It’s not a rant. It WASN’T a rant, okay? First, read the post. Then decide. I’m sharing my views, not forcing them on you.
