Born in the covenant, seminary graduate, return missionary, married in the Salt Lake Temple, BYU graduate -- pretty much a hard core Mormon for most of my life. I left the church mentally and spiritually about 4 years ago, and explicitly about 2.5 years ago. My marriage imploded as a result, and now I find myself single, agnostic, and chomping at the bit to get out and explore this great big world around us that I had shut out inside my little Mormon bubble of a brainwashed mind. I love meeting new people, sharing experiences, watching movies, reading books about philosophy and religion, playing my guitar, travelling, and activism.
Interests and Hobbies:
Music, movies, travelling, having new experiences, making new friends.
Brave New World, The Age of Reason (Thomas Paine), The God Delusion, No Man Knows My History, By His Own Hand Upon Papyrus, Walden
Wow - impossible to say but here are a few goodies: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Matrix, Fight Club, The Usual Suspects, The Shawshank Redemption, Braveheart, Master and Commander, Babel, Inception, documentaries and independent films, I know I am not doing this list justice...
Favorite activity after mormonism?
I like meeting new people and making new friends really - I also seem to have a penchant for trying things that were taboo when I was a Mormon like new alcoholic beverages. :)

Thanks, but the Tech Center is way too far away for me. I'm a Boulder County Woman :-) and anything south of the Chez Artiste isn't doable on a Saturday Night. Besides, after having a glass or two of wine I'd have to call a very expensive cab. Please keep me in the loop.
Yes, I remember as a child being told to make friends to try and get them to come to church-now – I make friends because I like someone. I think if we lost friends because we left the church – they were not really friends. The façade is off and veil is lifted and the world is a much more interesting place.
I have not been LDS for many years but I am still effected by it –
My parents never talk about me – so no one will ask them what ward I live in. I feel my life in the church would have been a lie – I do feel authentic and I am glad I did not take the easy way out. I know they will never be proud of me - or even know who I really am.
