Michael Jackson tells Bubbles the chimp in sign language to sit the fuck down and stop stealing sips of his tea. 

That’s the most gangsta thing I’ve ever seen.


"We tend to think animals are lower than us, but all the scientists in the world couldn’t design and operate a bumblebee’s wing. We can’t jump or run very fast, and we can’t carry vast weights like an ant can. We can’t see in the dark and we can’t fly except crammed in a noisy tube like sardines, which doesn’t count. Humans compared to animals are almost totally deaf, and we can’t smell a fart in an elevator by their standards. We are finite and separate, and neurotic, while the consciousness of an animal is at peace and eternal. We strive and go crazy to become more important. Animals rest and sleep and enjoy the company of each other. We think we have evolved upwards from animals but we have lost almost all of their qualities and abilities. The idea that animals don’t have consciousness or that they don’t have a soul is rather crass. It shows a lack of consciousness. They talk, they have families, they feel things, they act individually or together to solve problems, they often care of their young as a tribal unit. They play, they travel, and medicate themselves when they get sick. They cry when others in the herd die, they know about us humans. Of course they have a soul, a very pristine one. We humans are only now attempting with the recent rise in consciousness to achieve the soul that animals have naturally."

"It’s 3.47am and I miss you just like I did last week at 2.15 in the afternoon when I remembered the last time you told me you wanted me and you meant it. It’s 3.47am and I should be sleeping but all I can think about is how you used to smile when I told you you were beautiful and the way you held me tight and said you would never let me go but I guess things change and people move on and now you’re sleeping and I’m lying awake thinking about you."

How to make the transition to veganism!
I had wanted to make the transition to veganism for so long but I never knew where to start. I began as a vegetarian for 4 years and then made the switch to veganism! I have compiled a list of things to help YOU make the transition (: Even if you have never considered this I definitely think you should try it out for a few days or a week and just see what you think! 
I, like many others, used to think that going vegan would limit me so much to what I could and couldn’t eat! I was wrong- veganism has expanded my food range so much and I have begun to try things that I had never even heard of before! Making this transition has allowed me to try so many new recipes and ways of cooking things! I have some wonderful recipes I cook frequently now and am working on posting them all on my blog (:
Some useful resources that helped me:
The book Vegan for Life was a HUGE help! It helped me to learn so much more about nutrients and how to make sure I am eating healthy, eating enough, all the while eating vegan ! This is a must read if you are making the transition!
Vegankit helped me when I started too! It helped me to learn about how to live a vegan lifestyle- including foods, products, clothes, and more!
Earthlings- I never finished it but it is a documentary about animal cruelty and it is just absolutely heartbreaking! I have been told by many that it makes people want to go vegan!
From excuse-itarian to vegan! This video discusses a lot of common/important topics that are relevant when making the transition! You should defintiely watch it! 
Pinterest ! I found it my favorite source for finding recipes! They are free and easy and there are a million to choose from! If you check out my pinterest (linked above) I have a bunch of recipes under my vegan board that I have made & loved!
Vitamin B12- of all supplements this is the one you need! So make sure you are taking it :D 
Some other things to keep in mind when making the transition:
Choose around 10 easy & basic recipes that you can fall back on! Many families stick to the same recipes throughout throughout their weeks and rotate them and if you have 10 to rotate through then you will be set!
Let people know you are vegan before you visit or come prepared! Many people are willing to work with you and help you to meet your dietary needs but you should let them know in advance so they will be prepared!
Prepare in advance. Whether you are traveling or just going out to eat it helps to pack snacks along or see where you are going and check if they have vegan options!
When you go out to eat the best thing to do is ask the waiter what options are available or ask for the specifics of a certain item on the menu!
Keep food ready in your pantry/fridge! If you have food ready to eat then when you are hungry you won’t be tempted to eat anything that is not vegan!
Remember your reasons for doing this! Whether you are motivated for your health or to help the animals, keep it in mind so you do not give up!
Make a vegan friend! There are many vegans on tumblr and sometimes it just helps to be able to talk to someone that you have veganism in common with! You can share ideas, tips, recipes, etc!
Know your stuff! Don’t be pushy when talking to others about veganism but be able to stand your ground! Never be a rude vegan (because they already have a bad rep) but don’t let non-vegans push you around and insult your beliefs either ! 
I hope this helps everyone and if you need more info I will do my best to help you! These are just some general tips and I would be happy to provide more info to anyone and if anyone is interested in going vegan (or vegetarian) please let me know! It is such a wonderful lifestyle! :D

I just finished watching Earthlings and I am honestly shocked.

Obviously I knew these “kind of” things happened but to such an extent and the frequency… I really can’t believe humans can be so evil.

I like to thing I’m pretty hard skinned (maybe) but I cried at this documentary and it really helped me to cement my decision with becoming vegan.
(Currently a struggling vegetarian because I used to eat so much chicken and love it.)

I really don’t think that animals should be treated so callously to provide food/clothes/products for me when I can be eating and using so many more cruelty free alternatives!

Luckily, my parents are being supportive - especially my dad, though he says to put my leather bags/shoes into storage and not the bin - but my mum is a bit worried about how I’ll keep healthy but I’m going to start reading up on all that tomorrow so I’m in the know :)

I’m kind of excited because although this is going to be a big change for me, I know it’s going to be such a great decision too!
