When I was 23 I made a list of things to do before I turn 30. Then I thought, "What's the rush? When the new system gets here I'll be able to do whatever I want." So I never paid attention to the list and now I no longer have it. I turned 27 a couple of months ago. In three years I'll be 30. I could start another list but I would only have three years to do everything. It depresses me to think of all the wasted time I could have enjoyed.
I made another list recently of things to do that I was never allowed to when I was a jw. After I made the list I realized I might never be able to do some of the things on it(such as Valentine's Day) because my husband is still a jw.
Someone at my work is selling girl scout cookies. I'm going to buy some and I'll be able to check that one off my list. Nobody at work knows about me not wanting to be a jw anymore. It's kind of weird that I can be excited about buying girl scout cookies. No one at work will understand how significant something like this is for me.
btw, I'm not telling anyone at work because one of my co-workers has jw family. Even though they go to spanish and I go to english, I'm not taking any chances.
