sarahmclaughlin Yesterday I had the amazing opportunity of volunteering at Miyoko Schinner of @miyokos_kitchen house for a fundraiser for @_animalplace. There were so many awesome activists there and the food was incredible! ( catered by @sanctuarybistro ) The house was also amazing and we got to meet their goats, pigs, chickens and newly rescued baby cow! #vegansofig #whatveganseat #plantbased #plantpowered #noanimalsharmed #herbivore #eatplants #miyokoscheese #veganeats 14h

sarahmclaughlin From battery cage to sanctuary 🐓️ Love the way they hop through the grass . Loved seeing the girls we rescued from the battery cage egg farm a little over a month ago again. #chickens #chickenrescue #loveallanimals #vegansofig #vegan #eggsarecruel #choosevegan #animalsanctuary #animalrescue #chickensarecool 6d

  •   messymouse98 God, they must be so insanely happy. I wonder how a chicken's memory is? I know they're very intelligent. 5d
  •   sarahmclaughlin @messymouse98 yes! I wonder if they remember the farm we rescued them from? They can remember and distinguish between up to 100 individual animal/people faces. 5d
  •   veganbabie so happy for them 4d

sarahmclaughlin This is the picture I took when I first decided on attending UCSC and was accepted. It's midnight now and I'm working on the last midterm I'll ever take in a class for my major as an undergrad. And even though lately I've been feeling unaccomplished or like I'm lacking in some fundamental aspect of success I decided to take a step back and reflect on the strength that has gotten me through the last 4 years. I survived and recovered from an eating disorder that almost killed me with no help or support from friends. I survived panic attacks, insomnia, anxiety, losing grandparents, losing family friends and in the past 2 years have managed to fight my way back to happiness. Most of my life I've had pretty shitty friends who were quicker to point out my flaws and insecurities than to offer a hug. And I've realized sometimes that clinging to those ties to childhood is unhealthy. I've been able to surround myself with loving, compassionate people who make me want to strive every day to make the world a better place for all living beings and that's not something I take lightly. Friends support each other, but most of all should inspire each other to want to be better people for our communities and the planet. My college experience has made me an activist and given me the drive to fight for the world I want to see and share that passion with others. Getting to facilitate a section and see my peers open up so completely to the idea of animal liberation and veganism based on the simple logic that eating animal products is destroying our planet and is directly contributing to animal cruelty is inspiring. I don't have the time or emotional energy anymore to constantly fight with those who are supposed to support me. Surround yourself with people who light you up inside and make you happy, not those who make you feel like you need to hide a part of yourself whenever you're around them. That's what college has taught me. #vegan #veganactivist #movingup #movingon #ucsc #ucsantacruz #vegansofig #useyourvoice #bebetter #animalrights 7d

sarahmclaughlin I was having a hard day yesterday and @paulinaeve stopped by after her @yescacao demo and brought me some vegan treats. It really means a lot to have people to lean on when times are stressful and I'm grateful for all the amazing, kind people @bananaslugsforanimals has brought into my life. Paulina is an awesome person. You should all check out her IG 🏼 Thanks Paulina. #vegansofig #whatveganseat #plantbased #plantpowered #vegan #collegestress #yescacao @sweetandsara #veganssweets 1w

sarahmclaughlin With a midterm due Tuesday, graduation ceremony looming, housing for next fall and plans for the future on my mind my stress level has been running high. Plus worrying about finances and loans and anything else I could possibly worry about. I haven't been handling it well at all today but I'm trying to focus on the immediate present right now and stay balanced. I've also been dealing with feeling unaccomplished in the face of graduation. I thought I would feel a lot prouder about getting my degree, like I'm making some kind of huge life transition. But I don't. Eloise is helping though. She only cares about the present so I'll channel her for now. #vegansofig #catsofig #collegestress #catlady #moneystress #graduationstress #adoptdontshop 1w
