A mere three weeks ago I was given the assignment from a teacher to be a vegetarian and go sugar-free for a month. "It won't be so bad", i thought to myself, little did i know, it would change my life forever. Just a couple days in and i was already craving just a little piece of lunch meat or a tiny piece of candy. A couple days after that i found myself living vicariously through my roommates. As they munched on bits of meat and candy I asked them to describe the taste to me and what it was like. Apples and carrots just weren't doing it for me. I successfully made it through a week, and two weeks, and finally in the third week my teacher announced that we could be done (due to a plethora of complaints he'd recieved!) I was ecstatic to say the least. It was like Christmas day as i gorged myself on candy bars at work and ate all the meat i could get my hands on. In a matter of one short day, I had turned into this:
