    I have a new set of Godly friends now, free from peer pressure, who needs those friends that only stick to you because you pay for their drinks at fancy restaurants and nightclubs. I failed the first year of my course, it was my first time away from home, but I'm now in another university doing well. I agree 100% with you TSS.org!
