It is proven! I am kymberly on Keybase: https://keybase.io/kymberly/sigchain#73bf617f0ae98274b65ef54f5d097818fac92cf654b56a76b924f72d57f92a8a0f
I became Catholic in 2012, after having resisted for over a decade. I'm a philosophy nerd, a science/technology nerd, an early music lover, a soprano, a bassoonist, an artist, and a writer. Not necessarily in that order.
I would have continued resisting Catholicism as an option if not for my husband, who refused to marry me if I wouldn't at least consider it.
We don't have any children, and this isn't anyone's fault. We may have considered adoption if we weren't mired in the care of elderly relatives, which consumes a good deal of our time and energy.
I don't always think to tell people things about myself, but I'm always willing to answer questions people ask about me.
"Let us never assume that if we live good lives we will be without sin; our lives should be praised only when we continue to beg for pardon. But men are hopeless creatures, and the less they concentrate on their own sins, the more interested they become in the sins of others. They seek to criticize, not to correct. Unable to excuse themselves, they are ready to accuse others."

I hate to be one of those "this is the current year" people, but this is absolutely ridiculous:
Fascinating thoughts to ponder from St. Jerome:
"Moses, one man, obtains God’s pardon for six hundred thousand armed men, and Stephen prays for his persecutors. When they are with Christ, will they be less powerful? Paul says that two hundred and seventy-six souls were granted to his prayers, whilst they were in a ship with him. Shall he close his lips after death, and not mutter a syllable for those who throughout the world have believed in his gospel?"
"If Apostles and martyrs, whilst still in the flesh and still needing to care for themselves, can pray for others, how much more will they pray for others after they have won their crowns, their victories, their triumphs?"

OK. Some people keep rating the app one star because I don't block an instance.
Unfortunately, their lack of comprehension concerning the Fediverse (manipulated by some propaganda) make they think that the app is not safe to use.
You have every tools with the app to avoid interacting with people you don't want to see.

July is going to be an interesting month... For the first time, I'm going to try a "working vacation" since I burned all my accrued vacation days when my father-in-law was in the hospital in May.
I have 2 weeks after I come back before I have a Handel solo at my Episcopal church job, which I will somehow have to practice while I'm on vacation as well.
This is going to be interesting.
I'd avoided confessing to this particular priest in the past, but this time I scheduled him specifically because he already knows all the background information about my current sensitive situation.
He didn't come out and say I was being overly scrupulous, but made it clear that's what he thought. I think he's wrong, but I suppose that's what scrupulosity is, so I'm going to try very hard not to worry about it.
In any case, he absolved me, which is what matters.
Real nerds celebrate #PiDay on 22/7, for more accurate numbering and a reduction in marketing that stereotypes them.
Catholic convert, wife, cantor, mantilla-wearer, huge nerd.
