The end of a challenge and beginning of a lifestyle

It’s been 21 days I started my Vegan Challenge, and I must tell you, it didn’t hurt. Almost everyone around me hit back my statement telling me “I can’t live without meat (or cheese, or bacon, or whatever),” but it wasn’t that difficult after all. At the beginning I suffered more on avoiding dairy than avoiding meat, but after the first week I became more comfortable with my new choice of food. Continue reading →

Another thing that made this series so special was the fact that some of these 8 guys are gay and one of them is also transsexual. Continue reading →

What I have to say about Christmas.

My family never believed in Christmas. My father used to bring us to someone’s Christmas party, and I remember playing Secret Santa once or twice, but I grew up without this tradition of Christmas. Adding to this history, I think that the Christmas propaganda is annoying and overreacted. But one thing I love is the belief that a new year can bring us new opportunities and new energy to achieve our goals and improve our lives. Continue reading →

My holiday was a bit crazy

In November 2nd we had a holiday here in Brazil, it was the day of the deads. I don’t celebrate this holiday like the tradition says (basically you go to cemetery to see the tombs of your loved ones who have already gone). In this week also, people were talking about Halloween, which I also don’t know anything about except the fact that we do costumes and go to supposed horror parties. My cousin called me and my wife to go to one of those Halloween parties at a night club. Continue reading →
