well, technically I was baby baptised but I switched denominations. Was Lutheran but now I consider myself Mennonite (which isn't really that different I guess; just the baptism bit :P)
Title: Re: What's new with all of you?
Post by: kristina-la on February 28, 2013, 05:47:38 PM
OMR. Mennonites and the Amish are completely different!
Funny, we were taking about this the other night :p
Just so you know, we are not Amish. That would be ridiculous seeing as I live in one of the biggest cities in Canada -_-
Mennonites are anabaptists; they believe in baptism as an adult rather than as a baby.
And as I learned on Monday:
They are radical followers of Christ
Struggle with being in the world but not of the world
Something about service
And priesthood of all believers (which still confuses me but whatever)

So get that Amish image out of your head!

Yeah probably :p
I'm sure at one point in history they dressed like that. But as the rest of the world modernized...so did they :p

Title: Re: What's new with all of you?
Post by: kristina-la on March 01, 2013, 11:00:38 AM
nah, it's all good. Lots of people still have this misconception of Mennonites; I feel like it is because we don't get out there (which is what I dislike about my church. We call ourselves evangelicals but when it comes down to to...the word 'evangelism' is like non existent
Title: Re: What's new with all of you?
Post by: kristina-la on March 01, 2013, 11:15:47 AM
Yeah I don't think many of them went to the state. Most went to Saskatchewan, Alberta and the lower mainland here in BC :P

and if you ever meet someone who has the last name of either: Funk, Remple, Penner, Fedrau, Friesen, or Klassen....they are most likely mennonite. that I can promise you :P
Title: Re: What's new with all of you?
Post by: kristina-la on March 01, 2013, 11:42:52 AM
my friend's last name is funk :P

(it's funny, in grade 11 I took physics and my short, bald christian teacher saw the name of one of the guys in the class....who is ironicaly my friends cousin....and was like 'I've never met a Funk who wasn't from saskatchewan." meaning...never met a Funk who was not a mennonite :P)

I've been gone for about 2 weeks and life is messy right now. Just got out of the mental health unit on Thursday and am staying with a friend until I can get to PA to live with my grandmother. On a new anti-depressant -- it seems to be working pretty good. Went to a hockey game last night with my bestie, Shasti-la,...it was loud but fun. I haven't been in school for three weeks now because I can't handle all the pressures that come with senior year, that's why I'm moving to PA...I missed you all and hope to be around more often now.

Reenie! I missed you and was worried  :(

Fanna! I missed you too~ Sorry to have worried you :c

Post by: Reenie-La on March 11, 2013, 04:40:13 AM
That's okay, I worry too much about people, I really do... :P

I love PA though, I hope you're happy there  :)

Haha, okay~

And yea, I hope to find happiness there too -- hopefully by next week I'll be there.
How've you been lovely?
Title: Re: What's new with all of you?
Post by: Reenie-La on March 11, 2013, 04:55:14 AM
Ummm...I've been better honestly, but I'm managing, thank you  :)
Would you be living in rural or urban PA? It's quite a...diverse state, I've had the pleasure of driving all the way across it several times  :)
As long as you're okay~! (:
And it'd be on the outskirts on Pittsburgh~

I live in Pennsylvania!  I love it here and I think you will love it too Reenie..... I live sort of near to Pittsburgh.....  Wish there was a way we could have a meet-up for all the PA Westerforumers.  (I remember some other forumers saying they lived in PA as well.)

Guys! Things have changed in 7 years. So this thread is now relevant again! What's up?

As of this year I got a niece, a younger sister, and bought a house!

That’s awesome, Echo!

Update-worthy things have happened since I last was active on here. I graduated with my bachelor’s degree in July. Now I‘m working on getting my professional certification so I can be a math teacher. Also I’m engaged. Been sitting on those for awhile; life moves fast doesn?t it?

WOAH! CONGRATS! didn't you start collage recently? Did you graduate early?
Title: Re: What's new with all of you?
Post by: Catvomitsky on October 01, 2020, 03:18:37 AM
Thank you guys! I graduated earlier than expected, but since I already had a 2-year degree coming in, there was always the possibility to graduate after 2 more years

Makes sense.
Also, if you don't mind sharing, how did the engagement come about?  What's your fiance like? I don't mean to be invasive or anything, I'm just really proud of you because I've known you since you were in Middle School! It doesn't seem like that long ago since I was helping you with homework and stuff  :D

Aww 😊
We were acquaintances in middle/high school, and about a year and a half ago we started talking on discord. We grew close very quickly because we?d both gone through a similar experience being ghosted by the same people. We had a ton in common and could talk for hours and had similar values on friendship and relationships. When I used to work at the desk overnight he?d stay up with me on my shifts and we?d play video games and chat and watch things

Aahhh girl, you're growing up so fast! 😭   



I feel like my life has been kinda boring. Haven't accomplished much, as usual, but I am in a much better place now. I'm much happier and more stable. I really like where I'm at now

I know that's a problem for me too, I'm always thinking about what I could be doing or where I could be, I'm confused about finding solutions for them but in the past few years I've done a lot and I need to remind myself that from time to time.
Title: Re: What's new with all of you?
Post by: Mara-la on October 10, 2020, 05:41:12 AM
I'm still looking for work, which is getting really discouraging but I'm trying to not feel bad about it because it's the situation of the world right now, something that's not within my control. In semi-exciting news, I might be going back to school for a post graduate certificate from one of the colleges here. I've contemplated a Masters degree, but at the moment there isn't anything that really speaks to me or that I think will immediately further my career, which is kind of important right now. That's why I'm leaning more towards one of the colleges... they have programs that have mandatory internships, and some of these intern positions end up being full time jobs. So yeah, I might be going back to school in January for Public Relations, but I'm not sure yet.

THAT'S GREAT :D Whatever happens I hope it ends up for the best. Personally atm I'm just focusing on trying to improve my health and honestly?? It's working. Bit by bit it's working. I don't know if I'll ever be able to have a normal life but who knows man. All I know is this is better for me now than I have been throughout my life, so I'm not gonna not do it, you know?
