How can my family be so content with pissing me off and causing me to bawl my eyes out and want to kill myself and then act like everything’s fine and continue on with their lives with each other while acting like I don’t exist?


Saturday, 15/10/16 + Sunday, 16/10/16

These photos basically sum up my weekend. I wrote my first submission for my Contracts moot yesterday and started on a chapter of reading for Global Law and went for a walk and did weights. Today I had planned on having completely off but my housemate decided he’d take credit for cleaning that I did so I ended up doing extra. I did my grocery shopping, watched some Good Wife and finished that chapter of Global Law. I went on another walk/run but that will be my last for a few days - my calves are extremely sore and need a couple of rest days.

I just finished watching Meet the Robinsons on Netflix (and bawled my eyes out) and now I’m off to bed so I can be up nice and early tomorrow to do my washing and write my second submission for the moot.

I hope everyone had/is having a wonderful weekend :)

I just watched about a third of the most horrific video about chicken hatcheries before I bawled my eyes out and had to turn it off. I’ve never been a huge meat person and have contemplated vegetarianism for a while now, and I think I’m kind of ready (I’ve been eating tons of veggie burgers lately, which are delicious!). I’m an avid cook and a nutrition/dietetics student, so food is pretty much my life, which worries me a little bit..

For my vegetarian followers, how do you deal with stuff like:

  • Cravings - do you still really crave the taste of a good hamburger every once in a while?
  • Cooking - if you’re cooking for your family or friends, do you expect them to eat vegetarian dishes as well or do you cook separate meals? This would be my main obstacle, I just don’t know how I would deal with things like casseroles or pasta sauces (when you can’t just add the meat later).
  • Eating out - what do you do if there’s only a really crappy vegetarian meal available, or even worse, none at all?

p.s. I’m watching the above gif endlessly to cheer myself up.
