I like a good oxymoron. Anyway, it is time to say hello before I get another star.
I left in 1986 so I've been out a fairly long time. I got involved in Scn in Tucson at the mission in 1976. Within a half a year I was doing GAS work for the GO. I got recruited up to Las Vegas to join GO staff there and wound up getting transferred to the GO in NY in '79. I remember the old Org on 74th St. which then moved to W 46th St. in the Broadway Theatre District.
In '84 I joined the SO and went out to LA and was in RTC for a very short stint as the PR. Wound up in OSA US PR for most of my stay in LA and then spent a few weeks as the Bridge PR before I finally had enough of SO Life and said, this shit is not for me. I left in July '86. Thank god for a loving family.
I slowly readjusted to the real world and realized just how good life can be sometimes. Those moments were few during the time I was in.
So from '86-06, I enjoyed my time, but hadn't really thought much about my life in the cult. Finally I took a look at the internet and nothing has been the
the same since. That eventually led me to this board. This is great place to be wether you want talk or if you just want to lurk.
I'll try to tell more of my story later on the "My Life in Scientology Thread."
So anyway, Hello and it's great to be here even if there are Aussies. How's that for effective PR. Sorry I could't resist. Besides we all know that the Land Down Under is pretty cool.
