Being a vegan is easy; when I’m by myself at home. Then I go out and it starts to get difficult. More difficult than just being a vegetarian (I’ve been one for 1 1/2 years maybe a little more).
After Mass me and the three girls who went to Mass (I don’t have a car so I bum rides off people) went to a donut shop near the Church. Obviously I didn’t get anything, because I’m fairly certain that they use eggs and milk to make said donuts. Tonight (since I didn’t go home for Spring Break and about 1/3 of the student body also didn’t go home) the Perch (hangout at school) is having a cookie baking/cookie eating party at 7pm. Which is in 40 minutes. I don’t want my veganism to hinder my ability to be a social being but our entire lives revolve around food. Food with either meat, eggs or dairy. And sometimes all three. So, I will be that weirdo who goes to a cookie baking/cookie eating party and not eating said cookies. Because said cookies have eggs and/or dairy.
How do you deal with these situations? Because I’m learning but I’m new, and inexperienced.
