    visiting discussion forums, although interesting, takes up valuable time. I'd like to start something completely new and different when school begins in October.

    this is good advice

    I stopped going to ex-jw's functions about a year ago and I don't miss them at all. All they did was talk about the big bad WT society. At first you need to be around fellow understanding people that went through it but after awhile people start getting tired of hearing the same old song. And I noticed that at those ex-jw's functions the ex witnesses were still so angry after years of being out and I told myself I will not let myself become bitter it is like a slow death. Be happy and have fun.

    Congratulations! You have proved that you are a SURVIVOR and not a VICTIM!

    May I ask what field your degrees will be in?

    Congrats! ... I'm right behind you pursing my degree, hoping to keep my GPA up. The intense math and science homework may reduce my JWN time... well, studying and spending time checking out those "worldly influences" that will corrupt me

    You are inspiration to all of us. You should be so proud of yourself.

    Congratulations on your achievement. That was a goal of mine before starting on the path of a jw, but being a strong jw most of my life ruined that original goal.
