I liked feeling as though I was part of a Brotherhood™ that would live to see something amazing - that JWs were specially chosen and were doing Jehovah's work on earth. It sucked the big one when I realized it was all based on bull$h!t.
Goodie night was great - and I daresay that I still make awesome treats, just not as frequently as then. But we could do exJW goodie nights, without having the Book Study™ first!! That would be fantastic!!
Actually, to be completely honest, I learned enough about public speaking from the Theocratic School™ and going Door-to-Door™ to give really effective presentations at school and at work. That's probably the best thing I took away from being a JW - it's a skill that's served me well.
