And so begins my new life…

I woke up this morning in better psychological shape than I’ve been in for about the last month.  I crossed the bedroom/office to my desk, put on my PJs/work uniform, and sat down to actually read the news.  Not skim because I know my time is super limited, but read.  I’m not just analyzing what’s going on and finding inconsistencies, I’m learning.

It feels nice.

I’m excited.  :)

About JT Eberhard

He spent two and a half years with the Secular Student Alliance as their first high school organizer. During that time he built the SSA’s high school program and oversaw the development of groups nationwide. JT is also the co-founder of the popular Skepticon conference and served as the events lead organizer during its first three years.

    Now that’s the power of prayer evidence based treatment and support from people close to you!

    I know you don’t want to talk about the change of life, and I’m not sure if I missed the answer to this question, but what are your plans for the future?

    It sounds like you’re planning on going full-fledged professional atheist – that you’re going to dawn the cape and go fight crime, counter-apologetically.

    • JT Eberhard

      That’s the plan. :)

        Well, make sure you keep a Bible in that utility belt, and cultivate your powers of the Sonic Voice.

          I shall.

          Back in the day, on my old xanga blog, I had a toolbar on the side for where I dissected certain frequent arguments. I’m going to do that again, I think. So I’ll certainly be going after the bible/Christianity in a deeper way than I’ve been able to here with my limited time and posting it for people to link to/use in their conversations.

    Excellent! Keep enjoying what you do, and it’ll never be work.

    Hmmm… so the result of you leaving the SSA we get a healthier JT who has more time to fight religious BS?

    It doesn’t seem quite so bad all of a sudden. I can’t wait to see your superhero costume! :D

      Spandex. All spandex.

        Well, duh! :) Just remember…No cape!

    Did you read where the RNC is having a guy give the closing prayer that paid out cash bonuses and a monthly pension for raping little children? Cause ya know…you have to give these dudes something to get back on their feet and find a new job. Like maybe as a teacher or a camp counselor. Why is this not a bigger deal?

    Sometimes we have to make concessions for our health. I can’t skimp on sleep like I used to, I can’t push myself on my good days when I feel energetic. Take care of yourself and remember to make concessions for your health. Lots of lov and hugs from afar! Crazies, unite!

    I’m so happy for you!
