Closet Vegan

(This post was originally written on June 11th) Vegan I said it, “vegan.” It’s almost a dirty word around these parts. North East Arkansas, that is.

The video starts by identifying six ways to perceive time: 1) Looking at the past as “the good old times” (past positive) 2) Looking at the past as a time filled with regrets and failure (past negative) 3) Present Hedonistic – focused on maximizing immediate … Continue reading
