    So Im thinking about the last meeting I went to, which was the memorial of this year. And before that it was a thursday night CO visit in a friends congregation November of 09. Before that I was pretty regular.

    Eh.... this isnt as much of a fade as a cold turkey. Funny thing is...absolutely no ones noticed!
    I really dont know what to do with myself now. Im thinking college.... ?

    Thankfully I just moved to a bigger city kinda far from most friends and family.
    Im thinking everybody thinks im in another hall. And now that I think of it....I have NO idea where my publisher card is.

    SHRUG! :D

    ...i am a little anxious to know who of my friends and family will still reach out and be friendly and close after it becomes clear where I stand in all of this. and i wondeerrrr.....if i know any of YOU people!

    SMURF- Well, I read intently on your initial thread. If you are a 30 yr.old male - who knows ? You may be my nephew ! LOL ! He stopped attending meetings last year and we rekindled our close relationship as we hadn't talked in 8 years or so. He also is a 3rd generation JW, that's why I was wondering. Just to throw a little interesting coincidences your way ! Now, don't get nervous, everything is fine ! LOL ! Peace out, Mr. Flipper

    One of the great thing about the internet is the availability of pubs, talks, and all things JW.

    So while you are establishing yourself and new support structure ..... if you need to speak theocratese to your loved ones on recent stuff you can just pop onto JWN and get the latest on goings as if you had heard them at the KH yourself.

    Welcome Dances with Smurfs. A worldly here.

    I like the word "Theocratese".
