How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    My mom was disfellowshipped, and when I was 14, she decided to come back and was determined that I come with her. I was bored with it, at first, and thought the ideas were too pollyannish. But, when I started seeing more of the organization, such as being at assemblies, that's when I really woke up to how everyone in Jehovah's organization is so sincere and no one has anything to gain, so I started taking my studying more seriously.

    Secular Films:
    I love the How to Train Your Dragon series. Yeah, I know it's kind of a kid's movie, but it deals with a lot of adult stuff too--same for the Despicable Me series. It's a coming of age story, really. I also liked Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2. Also, Little Women (the 1995 version), Big Eyes, Bright Star, Meet the Robinsons, The new Star Trek series, and Death Comes to Pemberley

    Migraine

    I have a long history of migraines. I don't get them nearly as much as I used to, but they would incapacitate me when I had them. I'm pretty sure, even though I never got an official diagnosis, that I have had CVS (cyclical vomiting syndrome), and migraines or other things that would make me dizzy and weak would often trigger horrible bouts of nausea and vomiting. Idk if this would help others, but these were things that have helped me at times when I suffered from this. I've learned to listen to my body and when I'd feel a migraine coming up, I'd completely avoid coffee. If I really needed the caffeine, I'd get it in migraine medicine or a cola. That might be just a me thing since coffee can be hard on the stomach. I would rest as much as possible, and soak my feet in hot water, put a cold compress on my head, and listen to relaxing music. Putting menthol on the head helped me whenever I had it. I like this menthol roll on. It feels so nice on anything that hurts. I'd also eat something cold like popsicles, or drink cold carbonated beverages and eat crackers, but that was more for the nausea. I'd just lay down in the dark all day with something cold on my head and try to rest it off
  4. true, and the news is also so divisive.
  5. It looks like a heated mirror is just a nice feature to have, but not necessarily necessary. I've never had a heated mirror and have gotten by okay. I mean I live in the south, where, when it snows, we don't drive haha. Maybe it makes more of a difference further north? Also, like TonyWenz, I glued my mirror to my car. I used gorilla glue, myself, which I wouldn't recommend in a place that gets really hot, because that kind of glue stops sticking in the heat, and you keep having to reapply. I agree repairs on your car can be a bit of a rip off, which is why I had to teach myself how to make a lot of minor repairs, myself. A lot of young women, either feel limited or think they shouldn't have to learn how to do repairs on a car, but I disagree. I feel that if you own a car, then it's a good thing to learn as much as you can about it. I mean, you shouldn't necessarily feel obligated to fix your own car, but it's definitely a good money saver. I'll be honest. A lot of small repairs/maintenance things I"ve done, I haven't necessarily found as fun, and some were really intimidating to me, before I delved into it, but I think that money being saved or another month of not having to pay a note has been totally worth it.
  6. Louisiana weather is like a fickle schoolgirl. It can never make up it's mind what season it wants to be. For a few weeks, fall was going good. I even had a few days where I was able to boast cooler weather than Ferb, up there XD. Then, all of a sudden, it's started to rain and it's back up to 70F (about 21 C), and I'm thinking "I want my winter weather back!". It's been raining the past few days too. I like rain, but after a while, the place will get musty and my allergies come out.

    Car Talk

    What I ended up was getting an '06 Kia Spectra. Hopefully, with all this extra work I've been doing due to the holidays, I can give it it's first tune up in my care pretty soon. It runs pretty good and I intend to keep it that way.

    Looking for ideas

    I used to make gift bags for the pioneers when I was one myself. Nothing too fancy just, like, stuff pioneers would use a lot down here in ministry like sticky notes, wet wipes, hand sanitizer, pens, etc. They were typically well received.
  9. I don't currently live in England, but I might be up there for at least a few months next year, and for a bit longer the year after if everything works out well. Idk if that qualifies. I can PM you if it does. Because where I plan on going doesn't look like it's too far from North Yorkshire.
  10. There is so much politics injected into the news as it is; it will likely get worse after tomorrow (midterm elections in the US). I think I might take a break from news for a bit.
  11. In this hypothetical scenario, if you're seeking a good post economic decline mode of currency, there are many far better options that would be more inline with bible principles and would not stumble others. For instance, investing in a water distiller, as people will always want clean water, seeds for food, and also gold, platinum and silver tend to keep a steady value with or without paper money.
  12. I'm sure they worked really hard to dig up anything they can implicate the Witnesses on, and it's beyond sad. I'm sure the friendss in Russia are working really hard to exemplary in everything so that, by their good conduct, nothing can be said about them. If someone has to dig up a case involving the son of a Witness, who, by all appearance, is not, himself, a baptised Witness, then the friends must be doing an exemplary job. But if the government is going to play unfair like this, then it's only up to Jehovah to help out in the situation.

    Car talk...

    I haven't heard from them yet, so it's possible that the other potential buyer ended up not backing out. Oh well. I'm gonna start seriously looking in November. I agree. Maxima is a pretty good model. I've been looking at a lot of discontinued models, too, that I always thought were cool, like the Buick Rendezvous, the Saturn Vue, and the PT Cruiser.

    My off topic thread

    We have a sister who lives close to the kingdom hall who gathers a group together to sing at the old folks' home; she just started to get a regular group together to sing at her house as she has a piano and one of our friends has a guitar. It's so nice. It's a nice big house and she has a baby grand. Since a lot of the songs are theocratic and we talk about the scriptural meaning behind them, once a month we get to count time while singing. It's so much fun!
  15. All I could think of is some vague idea of how the IT people or people in the tech departments would be underappreciated somehow I love Dilbert, btw. I always enjoyed it on the Sunday funnies, and someone rather dear to me has prompted new appreciation for the comic in me.
