VEGAN VLOG 27: Cravings, exercise, and delicious junky junk food

Today, a discussion of my struggles to eat healthily and get enough exercise, plus a tragic tale of egg in my rice. Additionally, my microphone has betrayed me yet again, so the sound isn’t as crisp and clear as last time. Alas. Someday I’ll sort this stuff out, rly.

VEGAN VLOG 26: Darla + Coffee = Probably Bad, and “Raw, Vegan, Not Gross”

In which I further discuss my attempts at raw vegan eating (including some frozen berry-inspired trauma), Darla attempts to attract my attention by attacking various nearby objects, and I am a good Samaritan tragically trapped in my home for (probably) the rest of the day. Also, headset = actually functioning, so you may be able to hear me in this video. Hooray! Continue reading VEGAN VLOG 26: Darla + Coffee = Probably Bad, and “Raw, Vegan, Not Gross”

VEGAN VLOG 25: In which Chicago is cold and I try some raw vegan (non-)cookin’.

So, news flash: Chicago is cold! Also, I’ve been experimenting with raw vegan dishes in an attempt to avoid post-meal regret and general suffering. Hurrah! Also, I’m not sure the camera app on my computer actually uses the headset microphone, as the sound quality on this video is less awesome than I’d expected. Sadface, etc. Continue reading VEGAN VLOG 25: In which Chicago is cold and I try some raw vegan (non-)cookin’.

Interlude: Basic Chinese phrases and some whining in Japanese (and English!)

INTERLUDE! In which I demonstrate some truly awful Chinese and a brief whining tantrum in both Japanese and English. Also, to give this the authentic feel of a Chinese film badly dubbed into English, I have arranged for my video editing program to randomly refuse to sync my lips to my words. So very much to enjoy in this video…! Continue reading Interlude: Basic Chinese phrases and some whining in Japanese (and English!)

Vegan Vlog 21: Vegan Thanksgiving, The Good Place, and Darla vs. the Christmas Tree

Today, I discuss such riveting topics as my failures at time management in online ESL lessons, what I ate for Thanksgiving, queer representation (or lack thereof) on “The Good Place,” and Darla’s new gnawing target, the Christmas tree. Also, I talk about grocery shopping, because I work from home now and grocery shopping is apparently a major highlight of any day. Bonus (?): Photos of … Continue reading Vegan Vlog 21: Vegan Thanksgiving, The Good Place, and Darla vs. the Christmas Tree

VEGAN VLOG 20: How to burn your homemade granola

Part I: The hopeful beginning, when I still suspect something edible may come out of this experiment. Part II: Reality comes crashing down on our intrepid young (?) baking hero as she looks in horror at the Uncle Owen/Aunt Beru situation in her oven. Oh, well. I ate the carrot sticks (along with some Trisuits and yellow bell peppers) with the remainder of my tofu … Continue reading VEGAN VLOG 20: How to burn your homemade granola

VEGAN VLOG 19: Homemade Cashew Milk, Thanksgiving, and Darla Eats It All

In which laziness leads to my making homemade cashew milk, I reveal my true feelings on the presence of peanuts in muesli, and Darla tries to eat everything in sight, including a used tissue and a soggy tea bag. Also, there is **natural light!** Though now, less than an hour later, the sky has gone gray and disgusting again, so…thanks for that false hope, Chicago. … Continue reading VEGAN VLOG 19: Homemade Cashew Milk, Thanksgiving, and Darla Eats It All
