My mother has a tracker in me and always knows where I am, and she would be pissed if she knew I went across town to see a church, especially a non-JW church.

    I've been fast-walking at night a few times a week, but I should do more.

    I really can't mess up this next job. It will give me the power and resources to help others. Everybody should be helpful.
    Awesome! I think actually a little extracurricular activity tends to raise grades. Some correlation with busier people and better time management. You can always back off a little if you need to focus more on your studies for a bit.

    Your mom has a tracker on you? (Wait - in you?) It's up to you, but I think that would feel like crossing a rightful privacy line to me. You are a legal adult at this point, after all.

    Sounds awesome! They are doing rush right now on campus, so I'll probably just jump into some random one and have a good laugh with some people my age. Why not?


    Yes, she put it in years ago, and if I won't tell her where I've been, she can just look it up. That, and the fact that she has eyes and ears everywhere means I never got away with much. Still don't.

    I grew up with lots of surveillance and no expectation of privacy. That is how my mother found out I had dissent with the JW moral structure before I said anything. She checks my history and spies on me all the time. She has always been like "I always know what's best," but I disagree now. She gives great practical advice and is good at picking up details I miss(my personal weak points), but her morals and imagination could use a tune up. I feel that her perceptions of right and wrong are very skewed toward tradition over reason.

    Haha, do it!! Awesome!!

    That's kinda scary, about the tracking. It's one thing to be a little overprotective, but that is sort of violating your right to independence as a person. It's one thing in your four-year-old for safety... Very different in an 18-year-old. Does she have a plan to let you get it out at any point? Like I said - I don't need to make your decisions for you any more than your mom does, but that one leans a little too far into the cult zone for me, especially now that you're an adult. If it's an implant, you could probably get a medical professional - maybe an urgent care, even - to very willingly take it out.

    Never thought much of it, but I can probably do it. She has one in my phone, too, I got a text that I was being tracked by her number. I thought that was just being redundant.

    You need this tracker out now, ASAP. It's bad enough to do that to a kid, but you are an adult now, and have the same expectation of privacy as every adult. Get a new phone as soon as you can, too. For now, you might be able to frustrate the tracker there by having the phone entirely off - battery removed and all. And do check out the UU place. Do things - as Skylights and I have both said now, find things to do: work, school, UU, exercise, time with friends/classmates, whatever. Focus on those, and happiness will find you.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    Lol, no kidding. I'm on board with Coriolis about this, though. Privacy is a human right. If it doesn't bother you, it's your decision, but I think you should be able to choose where you go and what you do for yourself without fear.
