I am what I like to think is a pretty thorough vegetarian.
I don’t eat any fish, meat, no gelatine and avoid products (clothes, cosmetic)with animals in when I can.
One thing I’ve never thought about is the less obvious animal by products which can be found in shoes etc. I’ve recently bought some new Nike’s and I didn’t realise that they were part suede and it isnlescig me in slight turmoil about what to do. I’m not a vegan and don’t profess to be, and for my own sanity I have to draw the line.
I’m aware some will think I’m doing too much and others not enough, but to fellow veggies out there - am I bad? Over thinking it? Scum?
As a kid I was England OBSESSED. I was 8 during Euro ‘96 and caught the bug hard, all the way until around 2010 ish. After that I just couldn’t get excited about us and it felt all too predictable. This World Cup I’ve well and truly got it back.
I’ve warmed to Southgate a lot (he was the first to break my heart) and our team of young, unfancied players.
There was a time when I genuinely didn’t think I would make it to 30, but a lot of things have gotten me through - this place being one of them. Thank you to all on here for providing entertainment, nonsense, comfort and acceptance to me on here.
I’ve met some pretty great people from here - and there’s a lovely community here at heart - I can’t thank Phil, Gav and (Mark?) enough.
