Yes, I’m still here: Why I have been a horrible blogger

I have done a horrible job of keeping up with this blog over the last year or two.

So much has been happening, I think I got so caught up in living life that I stopped writing about it. For example…

I lived in New York, I got engaged, I got unengaged, went to vegas (unrelated), went camping (for the first time in over 10 years), studied food systems, finished university, went to DC, dealt with physical abuse, battled stigma related to illness, developed 2 major illnesses, had 4 hospital visits in less than 6 months ( and 2 ambulance rides, wheeee!), saw all my favourite bands play together, went to Disneyland (as a vegan), did an Animal Rights internship, visited an animal sanctuary, worked on some huge projects, made films, took photos, started doing burlesque, started a band… and probably lots more things I can’t think of right now.

I have really missed the reflective quality of blogging and having a place to record all of my various adventures. Over the next few week I will be publishing some posts related to some of these things that I haven’t written about yet.

Thank you to all of the supportive people and organizations, and animals I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with over these past few years, and thank you to everyone who still reads/subscribes. Yes, I still exist!

Dearest Jenni,

You did this once and it was really cool, and again so I am sitting writing you a letter at your intern apartment in New York City.

In the next year I hope you,

  • Commit to eating way more fruit and more organic food
  • Stop making trash
  • Move out or make plans to move out
  • Learn more about communicating your mission to the world
  • Get at least 10 people to go vegan.
  • Write monthly letters to help animals!
  • Host a French party (maybe this one takes a little longer haha)
  • Make Paper!
  • drop something off a building
  • Try stand up comedy!
  • Perform Spoken Word Poetry

You were semi-effective last year and I can’t wait to see what you accomplish! You are amazing. I love you.

Peace,

Jenni (2013)
