Woo-hoo! Cast your votes now because you could win some fancy prizes if your ballots are selected. Don't say I didn't warn you and don't be mad at me when I win! :-)
In all transparency you should know that I've had a crappy day in San Francisco. My phone was stolen and the mosquitoes have been eating me alive out here. My transition has not been smooth at all really. I've been disappointed by a lot of circumstances here, but I don't doubt the reason that I'm out here and this VegNews poll is just one of the reasons. I moved to San Francisco from DC because:
1. I wanted to live a life surrounded by creativity, nature and everything that's beautiful to me.
2. I was totally over DC. I'll love it forever, but it was time for a change. I'm still a Redskins fan though. :-)
3. I had to break away from everything that was familiar to me to get the life that I know I can have (and deserve).
Thanks VegNews! I'm excited that you are in my new city (only a short MUNI ride away) and I'm more excited that I had the guts to follow my dreams like all of the people that I voted for a moment ago.
You don't magically end up in the most prominent vegan magazine in the world, it takes guts and a whole lot of risk. Everyone that has come before me had to risk something in order to make their dreams happen. So, when I'm having a bad day I'll remember that this is just dues paying season.
Every season has to come to an end sometime. . .
