1.  You can’t look at these photos without giggling.

You ♥ animals, and you’d be saving more than 100 of them each year just by leaving them off your plate! That’s pretty rad, if you ask me.

2.  You want to have something in common with Christofer Drew (aside from your love of each other, of course!).

Vegan celebs

Yep, you’ll be joining rock stars and A-listers—including Anne Hathaway, Daniella Monet, Davey Havok, Morrissey, Renee Olstead, and more—in helping animals!

3.  You want a beach bod!

Want to turn heads this summer? Going vegan is the way to go! Vegans are, on average, up to 20 pounds lighter than meat-eaters. It’s a healthy way to keep the excess fat off while feeling full of energy!

4.  You care about other people.

5.  You love your dog.

Vegan food is crazy delicious! I mean, c’mon, you’ll be saving animals by eating veggie burgers, pizza, ice cream, tacos, burritos, nachos, sushi, pasta, cookies … OK, I’ll stop before you start drooling!

7.  You want to be total beast in the gym!

Along with giving you lots of energy, a vegan diet will give you the strength needed to push through any workout! Don’t believe me? Check out these vegan athletes who are kicking butt for animals!

9.  You don’t want to support an industry that slaughters billions of animals every year!



The number one sign that you need to go vegan is that YOU CAN.

YOU CAN choose not to eat flesh. YOU CAN choose not to support cruelty. YOU CAN choose to make a difference!

I’m an only child. 8. I knit. 9. I like to press flowers. 10. I like to shrink potato chip bags. I have a tattoo on my wrist that says peace in braille. 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. My Celeb Hotties are: Joseph Gordon-Levitt *swoon*, James Franco, Paul McCartney, Jake Gyllenhaal, John Krasinski & Josh Hutcherson (I have no idea why they all mostly start with “J” lol).

As for Horror films the scariest I’ve seen are: Vile, Quarantine, Would You Rather & Truth or Die My favourite books are The Catcher In The Rye, Penpal, It’s Kind Of a Funny Story, & Life As we Knew it. · My favourite quotes are "Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that." - Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. "If you wait to tell someone you love them, it’s too late." -Paul McCartney "If you don’t shoot, you don’t score." "It’s all okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end." "And in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make." -Paul McCartney Looking for: • Penpal • Art Pals • Package Pals • Snail Mail I send small gifts, and even surprise you when I’m thinking of you. **I ask that your age is 18-23.** No country requirements, I enjoy using stamps lol. 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.
