I was thinking yesterday about my year
I often feel that I missed out a bit by marrying young. We each still had a lot of growing up to do. We were both still trying to get to know ourselves. If I were single, I would have had the freedom to
Perhaps young LDS couples don't have that problem since their personalities and goals and lifestyles are already decided for them?
On another note, I just want to say, I miss you all. I miss writing here and I miss reading your blogs. I miss thinking about Mormonism (sick, I know). But, I had a good committee meeting in April and I finally see the light at the end of this grad school tunnel. My experiments are working (!!!) and I should be able to wrap up completely within the next school year (I'm walking - either across a commencement stage or out of Harvard - by June). So, I've been busy, but in a really good way. I have no idea what is next for me, career wise, but it MUST be something that leaves me more time to
On another another note. Are any of you going to the Exmormon Conference this year? I really wanted to go, but it's not to be more me this year. I want to go when I can take a week or so off and spend the extra days with my brother in Park City. That would help make the airfare more justifiable and will also keep me in my brother's good graces. I think he would be terribly hurt if I came to Utah and didn't spend a bunch of time with him. I know there are other meetings, some regional, through all of the exmo boards and communities, but I don't know where/when they are or how well attended they are. I would like to go to Sunstone one of these years (anyone go to that) but I would be more interested in going to a meeting or conference that is really for ex-mormons, than the mixed bag of ex-mormons, former mormons, new order mormons, cafeteria mormons, faithful mormons, and downright fundamentalist/fully orthodox mormons that is Sunstone. I really want to meet my peers in person. So, if any of you plan to attend any retreats/meetings/conferences, please keep me in the loop.
