personally i feel like anywhere with a dress code isnt worth going to (unless its “no football shirts”)… if sankeys had a dress code it’d probably just be to be full of bad quality MDMA and sweating your tits off. it really doesn’t matter what you wear. i haven’t been out in manchester since last summer so idk whats going on there any more to be honest… find a manc student on tumblr and ask them - the student nightlife in manchester is pretty wild!
(maybe some lovely manc students can like this ask or reply with some suggestions as im useless)
hey gurrrrl i have a recipe for 10min noodle soup on my recipe blog http://gracecooksgreens.tumblr.com/post/36959220063/10-minute-tofu-noodle-soup-this-is-super-simple
that uses vegan bouillon as a base with some ginger/chilli/garlic and you can expand on it if you wanna
Also as a former miso hater i would suggest trying a ginger live miso which is much less arresting on the palate!
well, there could be a couple of reasons for this! i experienced some fairly painful bloating when i started increasing the amount of vegetables and fibre i ate, because my body wasn’t used to digesting it and had to work harder, but it only happened a couple of times. bloating is usually caused by gas so if you are eating a lot of beans/pulses/cabbage or broccoli, it might be that. it could also be an excess of carbohydrates, so maybe write down your food for a week and see which days you felt worse. as a vegan high carb foods are fast and filling but too much reliance on bread, pasta, potatoes etc is not going to make you feel great! my sister relies on more carbohydrates than i do (she is vegan also) and she definitely experiences more bloating (and also more variance in sugar and energy levels accordingly)!
alternatively, it might be too much salt, which causes fluid retention. if you are eating salted nuts or snack foods or if you season your food (personally i do not use salt as a seasoning at all - not using it improves the sensitivity of your taste buds and is much better for you long-term) try cutting it out. most foods contain salt naturally and theres really no need to consume extra. for example, one olive in brine contains all the salt you need in a day
in the meantime, keep active, keep well hydrated, and make sure you eat regularly. the most likely cause is probably your food so a bit of close attention to it should do the trick. i had to cut out white bread almost entirely as it gives me stomach cramps which it didn’t before i became vegan! sometimes your body starts to reject more processed foods so it could even be that (thank your body, isn’t it magic - it knows what it really wants). if it’s none of those things, go talk to your doctor as it could be gluten intolerance or IBS.

well that really depends on the size of your loan, where you are studying, how much your accommodation costs and how much (if any) extra you get from your parents… i think it is possible to live on a student loan without working in lots of places. london i think is quite difficult (i work, because money would be fairly tight if i didn’t and i only have 7hrs contact time) as it is so expensive, but in general as a full time student, whilst you won’t have a lot of money, you can survive just fine with some careful planning. if you are in uni 5 days a week you will be spending less anyway and it isn’t really a great idea to work when you are studying so much - you do need some time off or you will burn out!
i have never had anyone (apart from complete morons shouting “DYKE!!” at me but who gives a fuck about them) be rude about my hair, at least directly to me. i’ve had more compliments regarding it than ive ever had about anything else… sounds like you have rude classmates anyway! buzz your hair and be a boss ass bitch!!!! aint no one wanna mess with me. its all in the attitude. own it girl
(if you are really worried in case anyone says anything nasty to you, prepare a really en-pointe put-down. something sassy. something really sharp… practice saying it in the mirror. get a friend to insult you and practice it on them! just the one response will work in any nasty situation and then you can strut away nose in the air)
soy chunks, soy milk, soy yoghurt, tofu, vegan sausages, beans, pulses, nuts, seeds , peanut butter, vegetables, protein powder……………..i wanna try tempeh but haven’t got round to it yet
well, really as a student i have an awful lot of spare time and my timetable means 3 days a week i only have one hour of class! so i have the option to stay at home and do reading etc. i spend long periods of time by myself so it is easy to schedule in all the things that i want to do…i also dont have set mealtimes so if i come in hungry at 4pm and want to cook a dinner then i do that. i find that an hour or so cooking a nice meal and enjoying it is an hour very well spent - it is very relaxing and then you get to eat something tasty! the best way to have a good relationship with food is to respect, appreciate and enjoy it and that requires some dedication of time. i love to go for a rambling walk and wander the ethnic supermarkets for new ingredients, and i think about food quite a lot, so usually i have an idea of what im going to make and how long it will take and whether i can do other things whilst it is cooking before i get started. on top of that i have worked in food service for years and preparing/cooking/cleaning up takes me very little time!
