The meat industry is not smiling. Four letter words are flying. Heads are spinning Exorcist style. What’s the deal? Technomic’s College and University Consumer Trend Report, a nationwide campus survey, just surfaced, revealing that 21% of students now limit their meat consumption/eat meat only occasionally, or have adopted a vegetarian or vegan diet—that’s what!

This is hardly a surprise though, considering all across the country the vegan buzz is loud and clear: A study by ARAMARK, a leading food-service provider, concluded that one in four college students are actively seeking out vegan options when they sit down to eat.

Campus Dining Services are reporting that vegan options are the top requests that they are receiving. Last spring, our Campus Outreach Crew gathered 70,000 student signatures supporting our petitions for vegan options. Schools from UC Santa Cruz to the University of Florida are now adopting Meatless Mondays programs. And! In exciting recent news, the University of North Texas opened an all-vegan cafeteria.

Coincidence? We think not! Veg is the new black and it looks guuuuud.

I feel like I should've been a teen in the 60’s-70’s. I have rainbow gauges in my ears. I’m FTM transgender but only identify as a gay male. I will write to anybody! I love fast food, glass blowing, making solar sensitive paper prints, ceramics, making friendship bracelets, tie dying, decorating my room, shopping online and off (but mostly online), cuddling with my Cockapoo named Mickey,eating candy, making things, fashion, & going to the mall. I can’t cook to save my life. I enjoy Netflix, crafts, & making people laugh, I am generous and enjoy Oldies. Green is my favourite colour. I hate the colour orange. Halloween is my favourite holiday. I’m addicted to playing Kardashian on my Ipod and using Instagram. I want to travel a ton one day, learn German, drive and lifeguard, and be an elementary school art teacher. I collect international stamps, coins, postcards, Betty and Veronica Archie Comics, kawaii stuff, cameos, *stickers*, and trinkets (I pick things off the ground, I’m a klepto like that). I write in a diary everyday. I hate candy corn. I have two cactus plants. I have Facebook, Snapchat, Tumblr and Instagram, so HMU if you want my usernames. I believe loosely in karma, fate, kismet, déjà vu, reincarnation, dreams, destiny & fate. I love for stores: Etsy, Hot Topic, Francesca's, & Claire’s. People say I look like Brenton Thwaites.

What I expect from a pen pal is LGBTQA respect and a consistency to correspondence. But I seriously love meeting new people with different interests and writing to them.

    As a kid, I was and am still curious about the great big world we live in, and I thought nothing of animal abuse. But for some or no completely good reasons, I was getting sicker and weaker. Then one day I heard about PETA while I was on the internet. I got a little curious, and I went veg after finding out meat was one of the reasons I was sicker. Right now, I'm still trying to give up meat for my health. But I'm getting there!
