I’m 20 years old and I sound like I’m 12. Good lord, someone slap me.
Okay. This might be a long rant.
I stopped eating meat a while ago. I’d say about a month or two ago. Never been a big meat fan, the last 6 months or so I’ve been eating “meat products” like once a week or less…I still not comfortable using the word “vegetarian”. I’m just not eating meat. I’m not going to say “forever” or “this is who I am now” but it’s something I’m trying out and I hope will stick. Ever since I started this new thing (which has been really rewarding actually! I’m cooking and caring about what I eat for the first time in my life and food is sooo delicious) people keep sticking their fucking noses in my business. It would be fine if I got the occasional “Oh, so you don’t eat chicken either?” I get that people ask questions like “Why don’t you eat meat anymore?” Fine. I would be curious too. It’s the other fuckers in my life who tease me relentlessly-to the point of sticking forks full of chicken in my face and in my food. My best friend, who I love dearly, said to me “That is so dumb. I mean, I expect it out of you, I guess, but you’re going to regret it so much. Let me know when you relapse, I’ll make you meatloaf.” (I think the last time I ate meatloaf was at least 5 years ago-if I did start eating meat again why the fuck would I want that?) My new roommate this morning said “I just don’t get it, like, if you’re not a Peta freak then why don’t you just cut out steak and shit? This is dumb. I don’t get it. It’s not even like you have a valid reason.” her boyfriend is always going on about cooking me stirfry with chicken to try and “change” me. He’s also the one who, at his girlfriends fucking birthday dinner, took a fork stuffed with chicken and waved it in front of my face and tried to drop it all into my mac and cheese-which I got without chicken! I even had them bring the chicken separately because I knew he would want it!
I just really want people’s support? I feel like what you eat isn’t a big deal. I don’t care if every other person on this earth goes out and eats a big juicy steak 4 times a day. I really just don’t. But for some reason I feel really ostracized for changing my diet against the “norm”. What the fuck even is normal? Why is your diet such a big deal? Am I being dramatic? It’s only 3 or 4 people in my life acting this way but god damn grow the fuck up. Perhaps it’s me making a big deal out of nothing, but every other person in my life seems completely unphased by it, which is exactly what I want. Now that I’ve written this whole rant it kind of seems like I want to make it a big deal. The point of this is that I am frustrated with how some of my friends are reacting to a new situation in my life and I’m not sure the best way to handle it. Some days/some situations I have honestly considered saying “fuck it, I’ll eat whatever they want just so (insert name here) will fucking shut UP already” but that wouldn’t make me happy. I really, really, really want to try this and I want to do it right. How do you deal with assholes?
I don’t see it like it’s “us” and “them”
I just see everybody working for that same eternal weekend
Droning on and on and on and never doing what we’ve wanted
Heavy legs, two steps behind some forever-dangling carrot.
I’m thinking of quitting drinking again
I know I’ve said that a couple of times
And I’m always changing my mind
Well I guess I am
But there’s this burn in my stomach
And there’s this pain in my side
And when I kneel at the toilet
And the morning’s clean light
Pours in through the window
Sometimes I pray I don’t die
I’m a goddamn hypocrite
My roommate just made her sims have sex for the first time and she started singing that “I just had sex” song that Justin Timberlake debuted on SNL.
