When you want to spend your life at the feet of Jesus in the tabernacle, and then go and join an Apostolic congregation because that's what HE wants. :)

When you then spend about a week telling your sister about this and refuse to take any other opinions into consideration, even though they are willing to concede that it is the nicest place [i]for you[/i] if not for them!

...When the Sisters of "your" community ask if you'd like to give a group of visitors a tour of the chapel, since they know you are familiar enough with it to do so

...When you install CursorMania to search for religious cursors and end up finding one of a nun and using it

...When you start identifying your clothing with religious orders, based on color (ex: "Hand me my Carmelite dress." [brown and white dress])

:hehe:

I already have a brown jacket (looks like some Carmelite orders' vests), brown slacks and brown slip-ons. I call it my "Camelite outfit" after I though, "You know, I'll look like a Carmelite in that!). :D



...When a family member says you "look good in brown" (Carmelites! :D).
...When one of you parents, in a random conversion (not even about religion) says, "...when you enter/visit the convent...". (I had that one this morning).
...The very first question your parents ask you after your RCIA confirmation at the Easter Vigil is, "Are you going to become a nun?".

When you draw stars and strange shapes in the margins of your notes but also try to draw nuns (you know, it's hard to make the part around the face look right)

When you win "Most Likely to Become a Nun" for the yearbook! Yea! :clap: I didn't get any other grad awards so I was relieved to have [b]something[/b]!

This one is [i]totally[/i] embarrassing and way TMI. You have been warned. :)

When you have a meeting at a different floor of the university physics building than where your lab is located, and the toilet there has a white seat instead of the black one at your floor...

...and you think "oh, a novice!"

:duh:
