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.

I bounce around a lot

My favorite bands include:
The Big Pink, A Perfect Circle, The Psychadelic Furs, The National, Souxie and the Banshees, The Cure, Rush, Marble Sounds, Mounties, Florence and the Machine, Of Monsters and Men, and just soooo many more...I typically like Indie bands. Just started getting into Mexican Indie bands. They're pretty good.
My favorite movies
Okay, again, I'm gonna do both JW movies and secular:
Walk by Faith, Oh Jehovah I trust in You, The Prodigal Returns, and Remember The Wife of Lot
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
My favorite quotes
"Thinking is hard. That's why people judge"--Carl Jung
So nice to see friends from our old congregation in New Orleans. The wife of the speaker was the first person who greeted me when I first started going to meetings. Funny how you remember things like that.
