RE: The Adventures of Nurse in Church
I remember as a kid sitting in church as some of the older men's heads would start staring downward, sometimes you would hear them snoring and their wives would jab them with their elbow.

But now that we have smart phones, you can sleep and play games while passing the time, heck you could even surf TTA forums while passing the time. Big Grin

I so wanted to...sit too close together to get on TTA without someone seeing.

I'm gonna take notes next time and report back. Nursey is in school. When I bust outta this closet I'm gonna be prepared.

At least until I have my finances and prereqs lined up to where I can move out and put myself through school. So I'll probably be here a year and a half (I want to take a vacation or two). I will be in the closet until I no longer depend on my family's support with raising my son. Sure, I could make some other career choices that would make coming out more feasible, but if I can suck it up a few more years I can get to where I want to be both personally and professionally. For me, my career IS personal, it's not just a job, and I don't want just a job. (Sorry, I'm ranting)

CRNA - looking at 28-36 months depending on the school

Med school - 4 years plus residency and fellowship (variable depending on specialty)

Question: Do you snore?

If you sit in the back row and you don't snore... catch up on some sleep

RE: The Adventures of Nurse in Church
No, I don't snore! Tongue I'm rather easy to sleep with, I don't like to cuddle once I get to sleep unless it's really cold (that or I'll steal the sheets) and if it's hot - I'm definitely on the opposite side of the bed. No flailing, I stay put...

Mom and Dad like to sit near the front. We were on the fourth row last Sunday. He's head deacon so the preacher looks over at us a lot. I'll be at church this Sunday, too. Plus, the preacher is soooo loud - quite the theatrics. Not quite a "Ha!" preacher, but pretty damn close. It's the music that I usually hate so much.

I'll bring my hot pink moleskin for taking notes, maybe my turquoise Bible I got when I turned ten, I refuse to buy another one... I deleted my bible app last year when I deconverted (it kept annoying me with notifications that I hadn't read it and sending me irrelevant verses) and threw away my study bible about two years ago.

RE: The Adventures of Nurse in Church
I would volunteer to be in the nursery or preschool. I would rather hold a screaming infant than sit there.

Is there anyway you could get a Skeptics Annotated Bible, slip it into a pretty cover and tell your mom its a new study bible? Angel

Ooooo the annotated bible is a great idea!!! I wonder if it's available at Lifeway Christian Bookstore?

I don't like other people's kids, nursery is a no go. Ugh, we had to do nursery every six weeks with the toddlers when I last went to church - that's when my son was a toddler. It suuuccccckkkkkkeeeedd.

I say you sit in the front row and you pick the perfect moment during the sermon to do this...
