My Life of Drink and One-Night Stands Left Me Feeling Hollow, Now I've Found The Answer: I'm Going To Be A Nun
KATIE COLBRAN 05th November 2009
New order: In a few weeks, Katie Colbran will become a trainee nun For the past four years, I've led the kind of glamorous life some people only dream about. Regularly jetting off to exotic destinations such as Rome, Istanbul and Marrakech, I've been fortunate enough to stay in some of the most exclusive hotels and see some amazing sights.
I've made dozens of friends, partied until the early hours in some of the world's glitziest clubs and had several gorgeous lovers.
But in just a few weeks' time, I'll be swapping it all for a life of quiet contemplation in a religious community in Essex.
One day, hopefully about six years from now, I hope to take my vows and become Sister Katie, the Catholic nun.
My friends and family cannot believe what I'm doing. They have visions of me taking a vow of silence and locking myself away in a convent, or turning into the type of nun such as the ones in The Sound Of Music.
They find it hard to believe that I'm turning my back on my hedonistic life in order to enter a religious community and devoting my life to God. But I don't see it in terms of what I'm going to be losing.

Yeah, once they’re “hollowed out”, no guy wants ‘em any more.
Jesus finds his sheep.
Actually, the nuns drove me to it.
Trust me people, this thread would be ruined with pics.
There is a fascinating book on this subject called This House of Brede by Rumer Godden.

Right. For one thing they’d be limited to black and white.
What’s the difference between a nun at prayer and Lady Ga Ga taking a bath?
A nun has hope in her soul. (You’ve got to think about it, but not too long or you could hurt yourself.)
if i lived during the middle ages, i would have become a nun... i do sometimes have daydreams of being a nun... even as a young girl i would daydream about that... i know i have completely romanticized what it would be like... even more appealing to me is the idea of being a monk! haha...
Let’s have nun of those puns! LOL.
That is just wrong.. wrong I say.. wrong..
She can tell her past lovers they can have nun tonight or any night.
She's having it both ways.
