so recently, i decided to become a vegetarian. not because i’m against eating meat. if someone were to give me an extremely graphic, detailed account of the process through which a cow is slaughtered, butchered, packaged, and shipped off to awaiting carnivores demanding steak and filet mignon (whatever that is), i would have chomped on my burger and said “MMM delicious dead cow in my tummy.” (and no yehna, i am NOT becoming zalman. i found that comment highly offensive. say it again and i will shoot you in the face and splatter your brains all over the wall. then i will take those brains and shove it back into the hole in your head). but i digress.
part of the reason is because i made a deal with aren to see how long we could last.
part of the reason is because i need to eat more of the green stuff.
part of the reason is because…well, i just want to see if i can do it. i’d like to test how much self-control i have. to convince my brain that no, i do not need to eat little piggies or chickens or cows. to learn to make conscious decisions about my actions rather than mindlessly doing things as i have done for my entire life.
while i haven’t exactly faced a huge challenge yet (sam gyup ssal), i’ve stuck by it thus far. and i hope to stay vegetarian for a long time.
besides, it’s a lot easier to prey on sedentary vegetables than animals. animals run away when you chase after them with a frying pan.
