I love chandeliers! I have one similar to the first DIY, but mine is made of tiers of thin metal chains. #3 is divine as well. Swoon.

I don't have any of the things on that list and I don't think it makes me a superior person. What's vital to me isn't what's vital to the next person is all. (I do have a hair iron but otherwise, I don't have any substitute items.)

Honestly, I'd like a dish washer, but I probably don't own enough dishes to warrant running it.

I have been known to eat sushi or salad for breakfast, rice or rice cakes. Actually, I will eat just about any leftover, though I am not usually hungry in the morning. I never ate breakfast as a child because I did not like boxed cereal, oatmeal or waffles.

If you clean yourself it's doubtful your jeans smell. As far as drying jeans to fit and the stretch out factor ... drying damages the "stretch" content of the fabric.

It's easy to feel limited, but as others have pointed out, there are many vegan options and most foods are fairly easy to veganize. I would recommend avoiding blatant substitutes, like prepackaged burgers and cheese, and instead eating a well balanced diet rich in whole grains, fruit, vegetables, beans, seaweed, etc.

I've been vegan for most of my life. Recently I've altered my diet to be macrobiotic as well (more restrictive than typical macro due to digestive issues) and while I was first upset my my very, very limited diet, I'm feeling better than ever. One thing, which has been huge for me, is I never feel sluggish or lethargic anymore!

I love cooking, especially cooking for other people. No one has complained about lack of meat, dairy, gluten, etc. in my cooking. I get a lot of requests from family, friends, coworkers, etc. for my baked goods, which is nice.

While I've been ridiculed--I've also found a wealth of love and support. My grandmother taught me how to make pasteles, a traditional Puerto Rican food, vegan. A Mexican friend's mom made us vegan mole. Often I find people are more open to veganism with clear communication and without food elitism.

I hate wearing shoes. I take them off the second I get home, and leave them right inside the door. If I lived in a house I'd fence in a porch and keep all my shoes in cabinets. But I live in an apartment, so whatever shoes I wore that day and my house flip flops are right inside the door. I clean the shoes and put them away so as to avoid clutter.

When I eat dairy--any kind in any amount, I get paralyzing stomach pain followed by explosive diarrhea or vomiting. Does this happen to anyone else? I have suspected my allergy is beyond the scope of lactose intolerance, but as I don't mind avoiding dairy products, I haven't had tests done.
