Vegetarians VS Meat Eaters

I seriously don't get why we have to argue about this stuff. Personally, I'm a vegetarian, if people ask why, I give them my reasons, but I never try converting someone or making them feel bad for eating meat. But yet how often do I hear 'How can you be a vegetarian?', 'Vegetarians are stupid' and just generally get picked at because of my dietary choice. 'What do you even eat?' Seriously didn't know people were even this stupid.
So just to settle it, I don't really care if you eat meat as long as you don't try making me eat meat or 'pick on me' for being a vegetarian, because it's pathetic, and here are my favourite foods: (bare in mind, I'm NOT a full vegan, just no flesh)
  • Hash browns
  • Mushrooms
  • Cereal
  • Omelette
  • Fries
  • Potatoes/mash
  • Bean Burritos/Enchiladas
  • Broccoli
  • Noodles
  • Rice
  • Quesadillas (spelling?)
  • Pizzas
  • Cheese or tomato pastas
  • Garlic bread
  • Cakes, especially cheesecake
  • Crisp
  • Ice cream
  • Chocolate
  • Popcorn
  • Nachos
  • Onion Bhajis
  • Veg Spring Rolls
  • Quorn hot dogs
  • Mozzarella Toasties
  • Salads (onion, lettuice, cucumber, cheese..)
  • Veg Stew (Potato, mushroom, no-meat gravy, carrots, onions, peppers)
  • Cheese and onion pastys
  • Quorn Sausage Rolls
  • ETC

On a lighter note...

It's Christmas in 5 days! I've been recording my second Christmas cover today and hope people will like it :) Can't wait for the New Year, going to be writing, recording and gigging as much as possible. Can't wait to exhange gifts with the parents and ma boyfriend :') I'm off to watch Disneys A Christmas Carol for the second time ever, and it better start snowing again soon!


Normally I stay away from this topic, because everyone has different views on religion. Even all Christians have different individual views on what they believe and what they think is right and wrong. But this is my personal opinion. The last thing I want to come across through this message is that I'm belittling anyone for their beliefs, Christianity is fine, Islam is fine, Judaism is fine, etc, but evil is not fine. I am open to the idea of a God and some kind of life after death, but I don't think it's as simple as some religions make it out to be. It's not "follow these rules or you're going to hell", it's about being a good person and finding peace and love. The Bible was not wrote by God, no one can disagree with me on that, it wasn't even wrote by Jesus. It was wrote by some men who claimed to know Jesus and what he preached. Emphasis on the word 'men'. Humans make mistakes, humans can be rapists, murderers, bullies, they can be anything from the most evil I can imagine to most loving I can imagine, and they were the people who wrote the Bible. Along with the fact it's strange no women had a part in writing the Bible and women were apparently created after men, in the story of Adam and Eve man was created and then he wanted something to keep him entertained, which is us little women. Firstly, I can see the Bible is sexist. Secondly the Bible is contradictory, 'We are all Gods children' but yet it also says things that hint towards racism and homophobia and also that animals are lesser than us. It tells us to look after all Gods creations but then tells us we are greater than a pigeon so it's ours to use. The Bibles hate is disguised by some more well known phrases that seem loving, such as 'Thou shall not murder" and "love thy neighbour". But what about all the other stuff it says? such as "God sent Moses to rape all the Median women". Rape is not Christian. It's in humane and disgusting. Think about all the people who are evil and use the Bible as a reason for what they do, it causes so much hate and war. Think about the Westboro baptist church, "God hates fags", "God hates America", "Thank God for 9/11". They are getting their information from the Bible. I say we forget about the Bible and if you believe in God, then believe in God, and he would want us not to live in fear and hate like the writers of the Bible want us to, he (or maybe a she?) would want us to love each other and to be peaceful. Every Christian has different rules and believes, partially because of the Bible being contradictory, but mainly because they're still people, and all people have different believes and morality. Some Christians smoke weed, some have sex before marriage, some are gay, but some Christians think all of those things would send you to hell. I think as long as you're a good person and you're not really hurting anyone, what's the problem? Believe in love, music, happyness, peace, etc, not in homophobia, sexism, racism and hate. God would not want that. Bottom line is, religion is fine, but it should come from a feeling, not from words wrote by a few men you've never met, cause they couldn't seem to agree either. And if one of his desciples could be Judas, who says the rest were so perfect?

I figured my first real post shouldn't be like a diary entry, more of a statement. Bullies come in all different types; rapists, elderly or child abuse, animal cruelty, ignorant high schoolers, etc. And all need to be put right or put away. There's not much I can do personally to try and stop bullying, but I try to help the victims of bullying, and so should everyone else when they can. Everyone has to remember to be strong, the kind of people who are weak enough to bully, probably do it to feel strong because they get bullied at home or because they're insecure about something. That is not a reflection on you, never let peer pressure get to you and remember there's always someone to put your trust in, a parent, a teacher, maybe the law or just a call centre for victims of bullying. If you know of someone harming an animal, please call RSPCA, if you hear domestic abuse, please call the Police, if you hear someone being bullied for their t-shirt / hair / piercings or whatever, make sure they know it's not their problem, it's the bullies problem. A few years ago a girl was beaten to death because of wearing a My Chemical Romance shirt, things like this happen allot, not to mention the suicides caused by bullies. Bullies need to be educated on what they're doing and taught better before it gets worse, not treated like they're 'just being kids'. People who kill animals usually end up wanting to hurt humans too. The least we can do is make sure the victims don't hurt themselves. Don't be afraid. The bad people in the world aren't resting so why should we.
