My Story:
Up until my early 20s, I had the appearance of being very devout - I completed Young Womens, my 21st birthday was spent going through the temple (which to this day, I still consider a great privilege and highlight of my development, despite the fact I no longer consider myself Mormon). I say the appearance because I was also very subversive in the sense I believe in gay rights, marriage and gender equality. I also come from a long line of strong and stroppy women who always taught me to think for myself and to do unto others as you would have them do unto you. My best friends in high school were either gay or gothic and in terms of Christ like qualities of unconditional love, seemed to live these far better than some of my Mormon peers. What changed for me was that the things in my heart I knew to be true and unshakeable for myself, were increasingly at odds with the doctrine of the church... which is not to say there aren't some really wonderful, beautiful people who are members or some really lovely concepts within the doctrine itself. I just found it was no longer the right fit for me nor who I want to be as a person. I lso didn't like how so many of our beautiful young women seem to think that their entire worth is dictated by their marriageability - their is something inherently flawed when you have wonderful, intelligent, beautiful women doubting their worth because they're single... I mean seriously? What the heck
Interests and Hobbies:
Reading, Music, Knowledge, Art, Science, Knitting, Sewing, Painting, Walking, Cycling, Day Dreaming etc
Favorite Books:
Yikes... so many books and so little time. I should state that this tends to change but for now, The Harry Potter series by J K Rowling, Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy, The Poisonwood Bible, To Kill a Mockingbird and Cat's Eye by Margaret Atwood.... Yes, that'll do for now. I have books galore through my house, in all my rooms and under all the beds so picking a favourite can prove nigh impossible at times
Favorite Movies:
Zoolander, Strictly Ballroom, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon (with the original cinematic sub titles!!!! and not the awful ones on the DVD), Pride & Prejudice (BBC version with Colin Firth), Infernal Affairs, Baz Lurman's Romeo + Juliet, Spirited Away, Full Metal Alchemist, Inuyasha, Samurai Champloo, Graveyard of The Fireflies, Howl's Moving Castle, The Princess Bride, The Sound of Music, Hairspray, Pitch Perfect... actually, again like the books, it all depends on my mood
Favorite activity after mormonism?
Drinking cups of tea - any and all kinds from Earl Grey, Oolong, Rooibos - you name it, I'll try it. Also, occasionally coffee... mocha, cappuccino... Godness! Yeah, it's probably not as exciting as say sleeping around, getting drunk or stoned but even without the church, I don't think I'd ever have been into those things to begin with _ I'm just not wired that way. Tea however? Yes please!
