I'll be going to College too in about 2 weeks. About the same time, I hope to start attending a Church regularly.

Lord have mercy.

Praying all college students everywhere have an easy year.  That God opens their minds, and allows them to understand and grasp what is being taught.

May you all learn a lot, and make this a better world when you graduate.

I don't want to hear any of you going crazy at some frat parties!  Remember, you are there to study and prepare for a lifelong career!  ;)
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

I think I'm with you.  The town my college is in doesn't have any Orthodox churches, so I won't be able to attend regularly at first.

That's not my personality so I won't be doing that. I don't want to get taken in by the cops.

My town doesn't either, but if I drive into the Metro areas I'll be fine. Hope gas prices don't rise.

Lord have mercy on the students.
Psalm 37:23 The Lord guides a man safely in the way he should go.

Prov. 3: 5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

That's terrible. I thought I had it bad, I am spending my time reading internet forums and watching the People's Court and not trying to memorize all of the tedious driving laws and rules that would help me obtain my driver's license.

Or improve my Greek or German for that matter.
