    Bought and wore a bikini on family trip to Hawaii (actually, that was just before the exit, but I had already decided that I was out, and didn't want to waste the opportunity)

    Registered to Vote

    Dressed up for Halloween and went to a dorm house party at Cal

    Bought Christmas presents for my friends and non-witness family

    Went to see what other religions were up to (the full gamut-buddhism to Judaism)

    Watched all the funny sitcoms that I had been missing on meeting nights

    I slept in my first weekend in the world. Does that count?

    Ah, the simple pleasures.

    Brought a lottery ticket, sang happy birthday. Hell even sleeping in Saturday's is wordly. Joined a forum with people who have similar family dilemmas and are finding mental adjustments difficult . I find myself at home with the damaged sheep of this forum. It was even a sin to some to say good luck. My worldly list is quite extensive but my age gives me wisdom as to put less in print.

    I watched, 'Braveheart'... an "R" rated movie... such a horrible sinner... much worse than the child sexual abuse they cover up... i'm sure I'll burn in hell. lmao

    I am still in because of family. I have read CoC, Hawkins and Dowkins, and many blasphemous Watchtower books from beginning of XX century. I turned down an offer to be appointed elder although I do things for people in my cong.

    I started to use my brain and logical thinking abilities.....

    I got a computer and went online, at a time when you could almost get disfellowshipped for doing so. Then I found apostate web sites, started worshiping the sun, got sun-worship music, and found it wasn't all so horrible.
