I apologize for completely neglecting you ever since the end of VeganMoFo. I just got so caught up in life and other goings on that I (yes, I’ll admit it) basically forgot about you. But no more! Yesterday I moved into Vegan House, starting my three-month internship at Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen, NY. I currently don’t have any way of uploading photos, but I hope to rectify that shortly so that I can keep you all fully updated with what’s going on down at the farm. As for now though, you’ll have to just deal with my words alone.
I am currently living in a small house with 4 other interns, all of whom are vegan. One housemate just made some “pasta et cetera” salad for lunch, which was really good. It had of tri-color rotini, mushrooms, spinach, kale, almonds, and some soy cheese. I really need to get down to the grocery store to purchase some produce to cook with.
This morning we had our orientation. Don, the intern coordinator, came and told us all the basics of living up here and then walked us around the farm to show us where everything was. I’m so excited to be working directly with animals, but it is f***ing cold outside!! Also, I seem to have already come down with a cold so I’ve been pumping myself full of Emergen-C’s. Mel, my coworker at the health food store back home, would be proud.
That’s all I have for now, but I’ll be sure to update with stories and hopefully photos from the farm!
