Maybe I should quit law school and go study something that can get me out of Brazil. I love this country, but violence, life costs and the general positivity toward crooked lifestyles make this a terrible place to raise children.

Or I can move to some village where they don't have lowlifes, criminals or unbearable speculation.

We have a winner.

Have you ever been to a Brazilian village? There are many small towns with stable prices, conservative people and very unfrequent criminality for our patterns. Until recently, people in the town my grandmother's village is near to would leave their doors unlocked and windows opened, and her village itself knew absolutely no violence until tourists (and migrants seeking to attend them) destroyed that place.

Seriously, if you think I'm saying anything much, stay a month in Petrópolis sleeping with open doors and windows, spotting your phone downtown, walking around at night... Then do the same in Rio for one day.

If you find you can shout at someone, out loud or in your mind or in writing, you still have more suffering allotted to you in this life.

That may have been a poor depiction. It may not sound in your mind like shouting, if only because we are rather unaware of our own minds. What I am talking about is wrath or control.

And we ourselves can certainly be the objects of our own wrath and control, and often are in certain personalities.

I've just smirked joyously after finding out Anglo-Saxon jurisprudence calls a vis major (i.e. an unpredictable and unstoppable natural event with juridical effects, usually a disaster) an "act of God". God-fearing Calvinists at their finest. Luso-Brazilian jurisprudence should adopt this term just so I could hear my blatantly Atheistic teacher saying that on class.

Turkish looks great (best Latin alphabet IMHO) and sounds awful. Farsi sounds great and looks awful. Given that their sound banks isn't that different from each other, Iran could well adopt some version of Atatürk's alphabet.

I don't think the Arabic alphabet fits it well, IDK. It's fine for Arabic, I don't think anything but an abjad would fit it, but in Persian it's just weird.

Another language that should consider switching alphabets would be Hebrew. Modern Hebrew sounds basically like bad German and it's impossible to match their beautiful, ancient, letters with the modern mish-mash.

Why does someone bother to be a professor if they don't even bother to correct tests properly?

As for public universities, I imagine having a lifelong job from which you'll only get fired if you neither go to work, nor send an intern and/or a yes-man to do your job, is appealing.

In the case that's bothering me, though, he is a good teacher, but it seems he doesn't read the tests. Grades for the first test were arbitrary, and for the second test, virtually everyone had either what they needed to pass without a final, or what they needed to get the right to do a final.

so 2 weeks ago after Liturgy I was approached by some dude asking whether I'd like to sing in the choir  (because, frankly, they have like 4-5 people singing and no male  voices). so tonight I for the first time I was at the class when some  20-year-old girl was trying to teach me (and that dude) to sing (because I have no experience in choral singing whatsoever). That was quite humilitating.

Birthing Protestantism is the worst thing the German people can be blamed for in history, and that's saying something.
I'm with the camp of 13 million Americans that believe politicians are, or are controlled by, Reptilians. I think only monks can solve this problem. It doesn't seem right that they prefer to ignore it.

After taking my daughter to dance classes, I came to the conclusion that, if I had to do it over again, I would have taken up dancing in my youth rather than hanging out with all the guys at the karate dojo.  Way more girls.

Misha, do they have a dance studio near you?  I'm sure there's lots of nice Orthodox girls there who'd love to teach you to waltz...   ;)

Imagine that at the services of the Theotokos Entrance at the parish you like I was asked to read (well, it's not so surprising, the only unsual thing in it it's that it's been the first time I've read/chanted in Polish) and... sing in the choir, without any classes. And it's repeated a few times.
And I'd never before sung in church choir. Actually, any choir.

Anyway, what are your impressions from your choir singing?

In my church we all sing, but the ones who aren't part of the official choir are asked to sing in a lower voice. I used to go to choir classes but after the university strike ending it got impossible.  :-\

I like it too, I got a bit weirded out the first time I entered another church. Abp. Chrysostom says it's rare outside monasteries but we really enjoy it that way, we walked a looooong way from our first chantings back in Florinite times to now and we're still walking, it's good that the whole community lives this evolution IMO.

Anyway, what are your impressions from your choir singing?

I'll tell you next sunday (most likely).

I think this might have been discussed elsewhere, so apologies for asking again, but what kind of music is predominant in the PAOC?

I'm sure it's not the same arrangement in Brazil, but it's getting closer to Poland as we review old stuff. Don't quote me on this, but our main chanter (actually subdeacon) seems to be particularly fond of Valaam, and then Znamenie, judging from the changes I witnessed when attending choir lessons.

Obihod. It's predominant, but not the unique type of chant used here, ofc.

Is there a native Polish Orthodox chant tradition?

Supraśl chant, above all. There are some Podlachian melodies, but rather no well preserved. Of course, you can consider Galician chant as a part of a broad Polish (or the Commonwealth) Orthodox tradition.

The problem (or it isn't a problem) that apart from monasteries there is not chanting but choral music.

Yeah, that's true. Well, there are some parishes that are exceptions...
