In 8th grade I did a report on Buddhism. That helped lead me forward to other Pagan religions, but its always remained a large figure in my life. Dispite my following Wiccan path, I still follow many of the same rules and practice many of the same meditations I learned during the course of that research, and the reasearch I continued after that report.
