Well, as far as the University is concerned, I am fine next semester. Which should mean that I pass through this time (with my professor/advisor going into critical care, and no longer being able to be my advisor, and me still having some grade issues) happily.

So anyways, I am happy about that. I am also looking at a nearby church to see if I can do some volunteering or something.

One thing though, is that I am looking at a SDA church (which is what I was raised in, and am a member of, and I agree with them on some important doctrines). Which is fairly conservative period, and in the south is even more conservative.

Now I knew that they wouldn't be a fan of my drinking, so when I finally talked to an Elder I was up front about it (but did say that I thought that my getting drunk wasn't healthy, it is always good to give a little, especially if it is probably true). But I had forgotten about how many other preconceived notions SDAs generally have... (very conservative)

So we will see how that goes.

Did you tell them about your wanking?

Err, not explicitly?

I actually expect that they will think I am highly permiscuous or something based upon my alcohol use..

No need. The bad eyesight and hairy palms give it away.;)

Well, Friday I put in an Abstract. I should be giving a talk at the APS conference in Tenn. in late October.

This is also good news. No new advances on the doing community service stuff through church, I won't be back there for two weeks.. (next week the apolycon and that Sunday my cousin gets married..).

Basically more good news. The only news that would make everything amazing in Physics land is if my Prof. from last fall accepts my rewrite for the paper I bombed, and gives me a B-.

Congrats on making it to next semester, and being able to re-write your paper.
On the volunteering front, if you are concerned about them being uber conservative and trying to put pressure on you, can you not join a non- religeous/religeous neutral organisation where they will value your input on its own merits ? (unless of course you wish to have the guidance from your community church/Elders)

But I am religious.. I think some of what is wrong with organized religion is that they don't use their power to help others as they should.. I want to try and be part of the solution.

I saw this thread and thought about masturbating after a hot date where you get none.

I don't have hot dates

I have staring at girl with hunger in my eyes at the supermarket/park/street corner/etc..

good job on pulling it all together. i knew you would...
what does SDA stand for? I think they'd let you into the church anyway..they'd want to try and save you.

Oh, I have no fear about them letting me in to church. But it is true that some churchs seem to hold their noses in the air at times.

SDA = Seventh-Day Adventist

I am of the opinion that church isn't incredibly needed.. but there are certain advantages to being in a group and organization. One of those is it allows a larger number of people to do more then just one. Like in helping others.
