"...So many Witnesses give up the best part of their lives for the Watchtower Society, and get nothing in return. They trade the reality of their lives and ambition for the illusion of being part of 'God's chosen people'. They end up living second-rate lives, never doing what they really want to do..."transhuman
Sigh....I'm one of those, with no time left to pursue anything, college, trade school, no resources to fall back on, nothing, nadda, zip, zilch, ZERO. Your doing something with your life Snowboarder. Your outside the box following a dream a passion which gives you depth and character. What do jw's have? Miserable petty boring lives. That's why they comment on your blog, send you e-mails. There bored spit-less. There miserable, don't know how to build up, only how to tear down.
When there not wandering up and down the street banging doors pestering people there doing all they can to fob off their miserable, myopic lives on someone else. I'm rooting for you, don't know a thing about snowboarding, or how difficult it may be to master. Do know it's got to be harder and more challenging than having glazed over eyes while shoving a watchtower under someone's nose. Enjoy your life SB because you've got one, they don't. Do you have to wax snowboards.... like surfers wax their boards?........Whising the best for you and to you.
