This is What 'WE' Believe (How I Became an Atheist)

            I was in 2nd grade, maybe a year older or younger I don’t remember, I was on a school field trip that my mom had volunteered to chaperone for.  I don’t know exactly where we went or even really what we did; I just remember one specific part.  We watched a video about space and the big bang, I was thrilled.  I loved space, I loved everything I learned it made so much sense to me I didn’t want it to end, I wanted to learn more.  As we were filtering out the theater my mom uneasily asked me how I liked it.  Of course I went on and on about how interesting it was that that is how we started and that…. No… I was cut off..
           Mom:  “Well Katie you know we don’t believe in that right?
           Me: “We don’t?”
           Mom: “No we believe in the story of creation, that god created      Adam and eve.”
            This was very disappointing for me to hear.  I thought what science had come up with was way more interesting then this religious crap I was dragged to every Sunday.
Me: “ well maybe god made the big bang.”
Mom: “No Katie, we as Catholics don’t believe that.”

A Tip on How to Clear Your Acne

before I stopped using so much make-up
I was 10 and my sister was 14, and every day I watched her do her hair shave her legs and put on her make-up.  I wanted to be like her so badly I would sneak into the bathrooms at school and borrow make-up from anyone I could find.  I was constantly getting caught wearing ugly eye shadows and thick black eyeliner.
I had acne in middle school, and I begged my mom to let me buy something to cover it up....
“Please! Please! Please! Mom!” I’d beg.                                                                                                                                     "EVERYONE wears at least some kind of foundation or something!”
“No! You are just too young; your sister didn't start until high school!”
She would tell me every single time.  So I bought some crappy cover up on my own, and my acne continued.
