Eating Habits Meat reductionist, healthy, Vegetarian  
Wild Fact About Me I don't own a car.
My Philosophy Stop judging yourself. We waste too much time self-criticizing when we could be doing much more interesting, productive things like gardening, dancing, and smooching.
What Gives Me Hope Cats. Fierce old ladies. Buses. Plants. Music
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by End the drug war; make abortion safe, legal and accessible everywhere; make health care affordable to all citizens; put way more money towards things like botanical gardens, libraries, and natural history museums; get rid of archaic laws...
What/who changed my life and why Getting in a car wreck this summer; I'm finally learning how to rest and treat myself the way my body wants and needs. Things like going on long walks and dancing (and drinking, ha!) will have to wait for a while until I'm able again, but in the meantime, I have to live as joyfully as possible and send a whole lot of unconditional love to all plants, animals, and neighbors.
