“It’s been crazy, especially since I got back from ARC [Animal Rights Conference]. I’ve been overthinking everything and what I can affect. I want to affect everything and change the world, but it’s kind of impossible.

 

It’s hard when you know about a lot of great things that you want to be a part of. And you have smaller aspirations for yourself, too. It’s a lot. I’m trying to figure all those things out. It’s not like I’m going to figure it all out today, which is what is mostly giving me anxiety, because it’s what I think I’m going to do. I just have to get the base of it all so that I can make sure I don’t miss out on anything and I can focus on a few things that I really want to do. I have about eight things on my plate, and I think I need to have that down to three.

 

I want to figure out how to feed my soul and help animals at the same time.”
