Although I'm not from a religious family, I was sent to a school in my childhood where religion was a key factor. Pray every morning, pray during assemblies, songs about Jesus, all of that etc. I was even sent to Sunday school, and looking back now, I don't know why as neither of my parents are religious. However, Sunday school didn't last too long and I preferred staying at home playing my Playstation 1 with my brother. I had never really accepted religion into my life. I felt I was forced into it my by school. I never prayed at home or even mentioned religion towards my parents. There was a point where I believed, but I guess it rubbed off. As soon as High School came around, there was no praying, no songs about Jesus - and I actually liked it. I could be myself. Even in my Religious Studies class, it felt great that my tutor told us she wasn't a religious woman. We learned about various religions, faiths and beliefs. Then we discussed atheism in lesson. I didn't see myself as an atheist, because I guess I never really cared. My tutor then told us about those who are agnostic, and I guess that suited me. I just don't really care about if god's real or not. I just want to live my life the way I want to live. I can do good things and unintentional (and purposely) bad things, but I'm still having fun. I don't want to live under an almighty rule, or waste my time arguing that God may or may not exist. I'm just being me. And I like being me.
