School and sadness
« on: October 03, 2013, 09:59:06 PM »
I've felt pretty sad lately. I'm not doing too well in school because of procrastination on OC.net and 4chan and I haven't connected with too many people around school. Usually that latter part wouldn't bother me as I'm pretty solitary and used to being independent, but it's been starting to really get on me lately.

Please pray for me.
Apart from moral conduct, all that man thinks himself able to do in order to become acceptable to God is mere superstition and religious folly. - Immanuel Kant

Trust me, I should've watched my movie and finished my paper by now. I'll probably have to pull an all-nighter.

Lord have mercy.

You and I, we're kindred spirits.

I did that yesterday. Got out of it relatively unscathed but ideally, I shouldn't be finding myself in such situations in the first place.

Lord have mercy on us all.

Amen.

Lord have mercy.
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

Lord bless our brother William and comfort him
The true Orthodox way of thought has always been historical, has always included the past, but has never been enslaved by it. . . for the strength of the Church is not in the past, present, or future, but in Christ.

Yeah just got my paper and way behind. Going to have to BS some of it, but the paper I am going to have to at least read the history on Caesar and the Gallic Wars. Best thing to do is keep up with the work. I tend to spend too much time on Facebook.
