Hello.
I have been vegetarian since always (the legit sort ;-) no flesh of any variety).
I study engineering, and have incredibly bad health despite eating well.
I record audio books as voluntary work.
And like art, and computer games.
:) that's me.

Thankyou for your kind replies. This is very true, cognitive dissonance is something I am abnormally interested in.

Why on earth they think my poor health is caused by eating vegetarian food rather than my far more outlandish hobby of recording audio books, or playing Katamari Damacy, is anyone's guess.
