Hay: Vegan Badass, Age 14
By Hay, Guest Contributor
So, writing is not my strongest subject. As a matter of fact, two months ago my language arts teacher told me my grade was a 51. My only hope at bringing that grade up so I could walk in 8th grade graduation was to read a poem in the poetry slam-
Killing? Oh no…..
“but I just eat meat”
Might you be interested in becoming a vegan?
This idea of this blog makes me nervous and excited. Mostly nervous. Sometimes mostly excited. No, mostly nervous.
I want to think the more I do it, the better it will get. I hope you like it. I hope to meet fellow teens so we can support each other. I hope to not feel so alone while helping others not feel so alone. Could this be a great place to vent and share?
So far it helps me get thru the day knowing I can write about it all later when I get home- including outing my tormentors (look for their first names thru most of my blogs). When they say crappy things, I bet they are wondering what I am smirking about. Now I’m just the smirking girl with the mini notebook. It helps to not just stand there with a punched in the stomach feeling. Try this at home!
P.S. Language Arts final grade – 82…. Maybe I CAN really do this!
