When you first starting talking about it you said "circle group" or something like that. You didnt say "legitimate religious study group ran out of a chapel." Excuse me for translating circle and group into a group of friends lol. My apologies.

They are called open circles. I even told you to google it and gave you a definition.

It is not run out of the chapel in most cases-the chapel simply gives up a room in or out of the chapel properties for the group.

Okipagans, the open circle here, runs out of building 856. They do not suit my needs. They may suit the needs of others, however.

You said people who like to go out at night either don't have children or don't like spending time with their family.

What I meant is that people who need several activites to keep them busy at night usually do not have a family of non adults to take care of. It was not all inclusive. Of course people who have families like to go out. Nightlife is usually not as important to them though. She was advising the OP that Okinawa sucks bc they don't have anything great to do at night. I simply was offering my opinion that if you don't value going out more than staying home then it isnt a problem. Most people...not all inclusive....who have children are not as concerned with the nightlife where they live.


"you" from the bolded sentence is used in general. Im not speaking to any one of "you" personally. If someone is reading it and it means something to them, then they will know it. If the "you" doesnt apply to "you"...then ignore it.

I haven't found this to be true, either. What the f*ck.

I'm telling my experience. Take it with a grain of salt, as you should take everyone's.

I apologize then. Because I really did not care enough to google it at the time. The more you talked about it, the more interesting it became to me. I can admit I am ignorant to the fact that an "open circle" is some sort of organized religious discussion "group." That, to me, is pretty much like a church or religion in itself, being that its "organized." Too bad you can't find what you need here....but still if you really wanted to have some interesting discussions about religion etc...I dont see why you cant just meet with likeminded people and forego the process of getting it sponsored etc. I would think that just having a circle discussion with "buddies" who have something internesting to say about the subject would suffice since you don't have enough to do at night anyways. 

Victoria --- 11 years ago -

Who are you to decide what people usually do? Or what most people do? Do you actually know most people?

In my experience. Read that part. Most people.....who I have come into contact with....in my experience....those people. It is an opinion. I guess I could start looking up statistical facts about the family life of people who go out at night and find a definitive answer as to how most people actually spend their evenings...but this is just a chat site and it is all about opinions not facts....so it shouldnt be necessary.

Go call the chapel and ask. They will start on a 45 minute launch. It's great to put the phone down and go do something important.

The chapel won't have my answer. Im asking you Lylu. Since there isnt a group that you like...and since you do not want to go through the hassle of making an "official" group. Then why don't you just get a group of friends together who have the same interests as you and have some discussion time? You don't have to drink or party...since you are not into that....but you can do what you do enjoy. Since you are looking for things to do in the evenings....why would it be out of the question to just have a small meeting at your home or something until you can get back to your group? 

Nicole --- 11 years ago -

How most people spend their evenings vs. how they'd LIKE to spend their evening are two totally different things.

Yes, people with children are probably more likely to spend less time going out. For some (many?) it has far more to do with availability of babysitters and the financial aspect (first paying for the babysitter, and then paying for the night out) than whether or not they are more or less content to sit at home.

I would go out one night every weekend if I had a babysitter and unlimited funds. And that means NOTHING about valuing time with my children, considering that I typically leave AFTER they go to sleep and return BEFORE they wake up.

have a small meeting at your home

Yes, Lylu, you should do this. Invite like minded, or just nosy, strangers to your home. 

Balls To The Wall --- 11 years ago -

I am a homebody. I prefer sitting at home with a good book versus going out.

Well, I guess you can say I am a homebody at night. During the day I like to get out, do things around the island, enjoy life. 

Casey --- 11 years ago -

Yes, Lylu, you should do this. Invite like minded, or just nosy, strangers to your home.

clearly she already saw the error in doing this when i came with children to thanksgiving dinner. 

Casey --- 11 years ago -

but she did invite me, and i am strange. also nosey. 

KITTENS --- 11 years ago -

Lylu should host an OU get together.

I kinda already did.

Good point. I said content. Perhaps it wasnt the best word..but I agree with you. I guess the contentment comes with the fact that over time your feelings about life change and you start enjoying being home more than being out. SOME people do. Im not saying all, for those who like to think these comments are blank statements about everyone. And of course moms etc. love a night out. Im not saying people die and stop liking to go out once they have kids....it just becomes a less important part of life. Whether its bc the circumstances make it harder to go out or feelings shift about whats "fun."

The tittle of this thread is misleading 

Misses Eriksson --- 11 years ago -

LOL oh god...I just noticed ROR 

KITTENS --- 11 years ago -

And what she looks like when she's not wearing a black robe carrying around a scythe.

Exceptionally fat?

Halloween YL doesn't count. We all want to see where you live and what the inside of your house looks like.

Like any on-base house. Only with more dog fur. 

Casey --- 11 years ago -

and more computers than most.

0.0 and fish and snakes.

and there's a few caged children in the back yard. 

KITTENS --- 11 years ago -

and there's a few caged children in the back yard.

Not these days. I let them go at the family mart. 

Casey --- 11 years ago -

good. i bet they're distracting when the dogs go out there to pee. 

KITTENS --- 11 years ago -

good. i bet they're distracting when the dogs go out there to pee.

My dogs do not just pee. 

Casey --- 11 years ago -

well, they do pee though. i'd imagine peeing on children in cages is easier than trying to poop on them.
