Tomorrow March 30, at 2pm, I will no longer be the carefree High School student I once was.
I'll be graduating, and its quite an emotional thing really. I'm not yet really ready for college. In fact the thought of it scares me so much! But, that's life. Im very much thankful to God, that before I will be leaving, I will be grabbing the awards of being the Salutatorian of our batch, and will also be receiving the "Urian Award", the highest award given to the students of my university. Glory be to God for these things!
I'd like to use this opportunity to thank all of you my fellow forum mates for being part of my life!
Though I live in a place that is very much far from any regular Orthodox contact, I still feel that if I need advice, help, or learning about the faith, all I have to do is post here, or read past post, and I feel like all I had to do was knock on my neighbors door! Thank you so much for being good neighbors to me. Although I don't post much, I want you all to know that my experience here in the forum has been an enriching and wonderful, and has brought me closer and closer to the home I seek, The Church. Thank you so much all!
I ask for your prayers for my future. I pray that even though the course I will be taking is not to my liking, I will be able to exert the best effort, and do what God has intended for me. (I'm taking up Economics though Id much prefer Psychology or Sociology
) I hope and pray that I will live up to the expectations of my parents and that no vice or temptation or evil, can confuse or stray me away from the paths that I should go.
Lord have Mercy!
