    I'm kind of partial to Sheriff Buford T. Justice's line in Smokey and the Bandit ("what de hell is de wirl coming to"), but you're right, that one is the best.

    Hey y'all. It's been a while but I thought I'd give an update. Last week I joined a Christian organization that's on campus, with the aim of not just meeting new people but strengthening my faith as well. So far the past week has been filled with a lot of that. The people in this organization are some the nicest people I have met and I'm already starting to get involved with the services and bible studies that they have as well as the activities they have throughout the week. I'm very happy here. Also if there are any Cubs fans here, go Cubs!

    Hey Smiley, why don't you load up on some ROTC classes? They have that program in that college you're in right? The first two years worth of coursework is real easy. Real tough stuff like learning your left from your right, marching in a straight line, and is one stripe less than three stripes, that sort of thing. Easy A's for the GPA and great for the quality point acquisition. They do that on purpose just to sucker you in. The junior and senior years are tougher, but you'd have to commit to Uncle Sam to get that far. There you put all that learnin' they pounded into your head as a freshman and sophomore to work. Two years you're an officer and a gentleman. Just don't follow the Donger's footsteps and you'll be fine.

    This'll give you a little insight into ROTC.

    I know I've been gone for a long time but hope everyone Here on the forum is doing good. Classes are going pretty good. The Christian organization that I joined has been a big help and has been very supportive in the times that it has been tough. I'm starting to get those feelings of missing home but I have been pulling through. Bowling Green, KY has been getting a lot of rain lately, most likely maybe from Hurricane Patricia is what I believe.

    Glad to hear you are coping okay. As long as you feel comfortable in a group, you cannot go wrong. There will be ups and downs but every fresher experiences this. Be yourself !

    Happy Thanksgiving to all! Being home and seeing my dogs and family is by far the best way to be celebrating Thanksgiving. It is so great to be home! :)

    Got finals coming up pretty soon to eh? Lots of late night cramming sessions on the horizon. Ice down some Monster Energy drinks and get some popcorn and find a comfortable spot to hunker down. No TV, Xbox or PS2 for you dude.

    I found that a good nights sleep often did me more good than staying up all night craming.

    That's what I decided I'd do last night, and it was one of the best decisions I made. I woke up rejuvenated and awake and ready. And when I took the exams today I was feeling very confident. Last night there were so many people in the library studying and it was around 10:00 pm (Central Time) by the time that I left. A good nights sleep helps a ton. Well I have two days off to study for my last two exams on Thursday and listen to some oldies Christmas music. Then after the last exam on Thursday I'll be on my way home! WKUs winter break lasts for almost two months so I'll be home for a while :)

    Glenn Millers Moonlight Serenade, my friend. Not really Christmas music, but very soothing.
