Am I a vegetarian? Absolutely not. Why? :) I love food. I love the variety. And before I become a rich and famous vegetarian, I want to know one of the greatest pleasures in life, and I mean here, eating different and forbidden dish. If anything, I have sinned against myself. There is the difference between a diverse and excessive eating. Gluttony is one of the seven deadly sins, while temperance is one of the seven heavenly virtues. Each virtue is its own reward and each sin has its own consequences. The sin of gluttony demands heavy price. "Social Sins" by Gandhi, include, among others: "Wealth without work, pleasure without consequence, commerce without morality, science without humanity".
I hope I have found a happy medium here. At the moment I am semivegatarian. In the field of nutrition I use half measures. Life will show me the result of my actions and choices.

Am I a vegetarian? Absolutely not. Why (why not)? :) I love food. I love the variety (rozmaitosc w ogole; "the" = rozmaitosc czegos szczegolnego). And before I become a rich and famous vegetarian, I want to know/experience one of the greatest pleasures in life, and I mean here the eating of different and forbidden dishes. If anything, I have sinned against myself. There is a (jakas) difference between (a) (diverse) varied and excessive eating. Gluttony is one of the seven deadly sins, while temperance is one of the seven heavenly virtues (amen). Each virtue is its own reward and each sin has its own consequences. The sin of gluttony demands a heavy price. "Social Sins" by Gandhi includes, among others, the admonition against "Wealth without work, pleasure without consequence, commerce without morality, science without humanity". I hope I have found a/the happy medium here. At the moment, I am semi-vegatarian. In the field of nutrition (With regard to nutrition (bardziej luzno), I use half measures. Life will show me the result of my actions and choices.

I half agree with you. I am semi-inclined to follow similar half measures. As to semivegetarianism, I am sitting on  the fence. It appears to be a fifity-fifty proposition. I am torn between the two alternatives. A great deliberation and very well written. The demigods of Busuu must be proud of you..

Excellent!

half measures is much more commonly used in the negative

e.g. there are no half measures when it comes to being a vegan

Excellent, as always. I offer a few minor suggestions. You have great ideas and I have no doubt that one day you will be a rich and famous vegetarian, but for now, enjoy your indulgences (in moderation). Thank you for the busuu berries.
