I’m still Vegan

For better or for worse, I’m still vegan. I don’t think I’m going back. It’s not always easy, and I find myself having to say, “I’m vegan” more often than I expected. Those who judged being vegetarian also judge veganism. And I work with a lot of these people. It’s a shame that I like…
