You have been unsubscribed from ‘meridian_magazine’

Judging from my own experience, it regrettably looks like the amount of free time in a person’s life (Tf ) seems to follow the following equation.

I can only hope for a discontinuity at t = tretirement (or maybe t = tunemployment).

I took the rather momentous step today of unsubscribing from Meridian Magazine. OK, so maybe it’s not so momentous given that I disagree with almost everything they publish (with an exception here and there), but it represents something larger.

Do I want my life to be about being an ex-Mormon?

I don’t think so. For the next month, I’m going to abstain from all extraneous things Mormon (or ex-Mormon or atheist) and return and report.

    I can be fun. I’m just seeing which is more fun: kibitzing about Mormonism or forgetting as much as possible that it exists. I’ll let you know.

    Just to clarify, I;m not saying that you are not fun. :)

    Excellent idea Jonathan. I recently started a blog on which I thought I would post my feelings and experiences as I left Mormonism behind. But I found that I was just better off leaving it, and religion, behind. My life is fuller, and I generally happier when I spend my time on other things. Good luck to you.
