New Students (like me)

Yesterday I heard a great line from a fellow new student that sums up pretty well the feeling of coming to a new school and not knowing many people:

(I walk past a guy I met in a class who's sitting next to another guy contentedly in a lawn chair, not saying anything, listening to the outdoor music.)

Me: Hey, we've got a class together!

Him: Yeah! It's Paul, right?

Me: Yeah- so, is this your roommate? (referring to his buddy)

(they laugh and jab each other in the ribs)

Him: Nah, we're just from the same state!

The Conundrum of the Church Search

It's not like shopping for a good pair of jeans, it's not like picking out the best onion at the grocery store, and it's not like interviewing for a job or interviewing someone for a job. It's more like a finger looking for the hand it belongs to. Wierd.
