  • More About Me
    Was raised Charismatic Baptist then Assemblies of God, uber conservative...then I went to college and met a ton of different people. Began questioning my faith for about ten years and finally gave up the ghost sometime late 2011-early 2012. It's been a ride and I can say that my life has been for the better. There is a freedom in walking away from a destructive lifestyle and opening your eyes to reason.

  1. Ramen. Just described my life. Ugh. Cyclothymia here. I had a manic cycle just happen yesterday. Could not calm down for nothing. Now I'm on the other end of that and I'm wanting to just die. It fucking sucks. Oh and the social anxiety. The back and forth with woo and religion.
  2. said one of my students to me today. We're covering some WWII era things in 2nd grade. See they're a Jehovah's Witness. This is the most stupid, idiotic thing. HE uses it all the time to get out of work. I'd had enough today. I told him to sit down. THis shit is going to be on the test next week and he has to learn it. Also, if he's so against war and violence...why are his parents ok with having him read super hero books that are filled with violence and magic. I mean he threw a fit when I showed a Magic School Bus show in my class. Keep your fucking religion at home. I mean it encourages ign
  3. I deconverted a few years ago then had to move back in with my parents. The requirement was to attend church so I became Catholic (they're protestant). Moved to Texas where I haven't been to Mass in about 2 years. I miss the community and friends I made there so when I move back to Louisiana I'll probably (?) maybe (?) go back to church. Or not. I tend to be flavor of the month with the flavors being more Eastern and Pagan more or less. Note: I also have Cyclothymia which is kind of a mild form of bipolar. I'm on medication which makes me fairly steady in terms of moods. Honestly, I think
  4. Came out publicly to a stranger an non-religious :)

      I do that occasionally, but only when asked, and even then I gauge the situation and sometimes choose to reveal little.

      it was at a dr appt of all things. They asked what religion.

       

  5. It is a very small town of less than 10,000.
  6. No they aren't. Just today my job was threatened by this teacher who saw something on facebook that she didn't like and told me that I could get fired. Keep in mind that 90% of my posts are reblogs from fandoms. The rest is just random crap.
  7. Oh dear. And when he then gets angry again, what is he supposed to think? Is this a parochial school, then, if so many are Catholic? Could you warn her that she might get in trouble for doing this, indicating that you're concerned for her job, rather than disgusted by her actions? Hi ya'll, No it's not a parochial school. It's a small school in rural Texas. I took down my stuff because I'm done with an form of Christianity including Catholicism. I had things up there like that because she told me I could and for the majority of the year, it had other stuff on it until I was told that my
  8. She actually asked the kid if he wanted Jesus to come into his heart and take away his anger. She honestly believes that it's her mission to get as many kids saved as possible. Never mind that 99.9% of them are friggin Catholic.
  9. Funnily enough, I've never really connected with the gods/goddesses of my familial heritage. Instead I'm very much into eastern spirituality and Saraswati as well as Kali-ma are my Goddesses. I'm not really spiritual but I embrace this side of me cautiously because of where I live in rural southwest Texas as a teacher.
  10. Adequate sex education starting young and age appropriate, birth control without a prescription, and access to health care for women would have fixed this.
  11. Ya'll I've got to get this off my chest. A coworker of mine an adult has been proselytizing to my students. They're 7 years old. I'll admit that I've played the Christian game for a year since this is a small town and getting along means everything to me. I'm still kind of pissed about that. It's so illegal. I used to be Catholic and this week I've been able to take down my saints/rosary from my classroom. I want a secular classroom that is focused on learning and putting fiction where it should be. Ugh. It happened weeks ago.
  12. My neighbor knows I'm an atheist and my realization that my devotion to religion had so much to do with my mental illness and less to do with belief has brought a much needed dose of reality.

  13. Closeted Atheist and Lesbian....and I'm getting kind of tired of it.

      Are you in the closet to everyone? Because you have to be?

      I'm out as a Lesbian only to a select few but no one knows about the atheism.

      =( That sounds tiring. I am sorry to hear that! I am only closeted about atheism, and that is hard enough. I wish you the best of luck!

  14. Being cyclothymic sucks. These damn mood swings. Also boredom. What the hell!!!
