Hi!! I'm Heather. I'm 22 years old, and I just graduated with a degree in Graphic Design and Animation. I was born and raised in a Roman Catholic household, I recieved communion but not confirmation. I walked away from the Catholic church because of their stance on homosexuality, and being gay myself, I didn't feel comfortable in a church that condemned it. For a few years I was Agnostic, but over the last few months I've been studying the teachings of Buddha as well as the teachings of Nichiren Daishonen. I'm going to be starting the process of becoming a Nichiren Buddhist next Friday when I attend a study session with a friend from high school who has been a Nichiren Buddhist for her whole life. I look forward to taking this path to enlightenment and peace. I've also been reading about Taoism, which is why I say that I am a Spiritual Straddler between Taoism and Nichiren Buddhism.
