Wow, thank you all so much for your support, helpful words and suggestions. I really, really do appreciate it very much. I'll definitely try my hardest to apply what you have all said and suggested.
@BluePill2: I found what you said to be very helpful. I've been making all these scenarios up in my head and it's been doing my head in. I'll make sure I always try to remember that phrase "slice by slice", particularly because I have a horrific tendency to take the whole cake and try and eat it in one go (figuratively speaking, of course :p).
@Zeb: I'm thinking about studying sociology at university because I'm interested in that type of thing. Of course, I'm sure I'll change my mind about what I want to study exactly, but I'm sure I'll find something that I like.
@Narcissistic Supply: Aw, thank you. I've never really felt like I've had a "license to freedom", but now I'm beginning to see that I do indeed have one.
@Ding: I'll give reading the old WT literature a go and I'll have a sit down and try reading the bible books with an open and "WT-free" mind. And, in all honesty, I've never attended a study of just the bible where it's read verse by verse, paragraph by paragraph before. The only thing for me that comes close to it is the bible reading during the Theocratic Ministry School.
@ABibleStudent: Wow, thank you so much. Your (very long) list will prove to be very helpful for me to keep focused on leaving and not getting sucked back into that void of mindless thinking. The classes I'm currently taking at school are the ones that I'm interested in (e.g. history, geography, english).
@DATA-DOG: My parents have never really pressured me to get baptized, they've always just left it up to me to decide when I'm ready, but of course, the expectation is and was still always there. Thankfully for me, my parents haven't always been very strict strict strict with regards to the religion, but they've never really had to be because my sibling and I are very quiet and well-behaved in JW religious standards. I haven't been to the DC yet as it's scheduled to be in three months or so, and as much as I don't want to go, I do look forward to picking apart and criticising the talks given while munching on food. hehehe
@DesirousOfChange: I know, I have gotten some very good advice here. I'm very thankful, and hopefully it will be able to help others in my situation or a situation somewhat similar to mine.
Since I have to regularly attend all of the meetings, I'll use that time to really try and critically analyze the Watchtower, the talks given, etc. I actually have noticed lately the WT's use of "..." within quotes and scriptures which I never really took notice of before.
Thank you all and I'll definitely take advantage of the being able to vent and "blow off steam" on this site. Having "awoken" from the deceptions and untruths of this religion at such a young age is definitely a hard thing, but I can't imagine how much harder it would have been for all of you that were baptized and devoted for many years, only to find out the same things that I am just finding out myself. I don't think I would ever be able to get baptized with a sound conscience knowing the things that I do. What's funny is how blatantly obvious it is that there is something not right with the religion, but so so many people choose to block it out, close their eyes, pretend they never noticed and carry on "happily" with their lives, exactly just like the organization wants them to. I find it actually quite sad.
