hooo.... wow wee.. sorry about that buddy just really had to do the ol' number 2 haha.
oh, now that I got a good look at your clothes and that honker of yours, are you an ivy league student? you're a harvard kiddo huh? yep, damn good school that is.. *burp* you guys are the biggest and brightest coming out of our school systems. me? I went to a state school in cali, good ol' San Jose State. studied electrical engineering and had a FUCKING blast with it man haha. i used to go to these house parties thrown by sigma tau which were a greek society who were kicked out of the school for hazing a kid to death when they hiked along new almaden and they gave him nothing to eat or drink except a single white onion. I heard the kid was a real prick so I didn't shed any tears over it. good times, dude. yeah man, i'm a field controls engineer now making six figures but it's in SV so I'm still somewhat poor, haha, still got enough to cop a new pair of NBs though...
So, what do you study dude? Business? Oh.. philosophy? Damn man you must be pretty smart. I thought you could learn philosophy at the library but ehh I guess I'm wrong you know? So you study logic and stuff? I took a symbolic logic class when I was doing digital design and that shit was pretty cool but the final project was a total pain in the ass. Took me at least 100 hours, no joke. So, like, do you think anything's real or what's your take on things? me, I don't care too much either way. i'm fine being a good little cog as long as I get paid HAHA! so, you looking for internships right now? it's almost september so application season's kinda starting man. brings me back to when I had to worry about that shit. i had 3 internships under my belt since we were sponsored by a bunch of tech companies since our engineering program's really tight knit but you guys have the fucking prestige bro! you can get any job you want and go to any grad school you want man. i'm pretty jealous.

anyway, it's been nice talking to you. i gotta go catch my flight to austin since they're putting me out there for a couple weeks. always on the road you know? haha. take care of yourself.

It just so happened we're both very traditionalist Catholics and that plays well to her family back in the homeland.

Check out The Anatomy of Melancholy for some obscure but interesting dense shit.

> On its surface, the book is presented as a medical textbook in which Burton applies his vast and varied learning, in the scholastic manner, to the subject of melancholia (which includes, although it is not limited to, what is now termed clinical depression). Although presented as a medical text, The Anatomy of Melancholy is as much a sui generis work of literature as it is a scientific or philosophical text, and Burton addresses far more than his stated subject. In fact, the Anatomy uses melancholy as the lens through which all human emotion and thought may be scrutinized, and virtually the entire contents of a 17th-century library are marshalled into service of this goal.[2] It is encyclopedic in its range and reference.

That said, I might have added on ‘do things other people aren’t doing’ too. Especially with youthful literature when you don’t have as much pure academic knowledge attained, interesting experiences help to inspire good (or at least original) work — just look at the Beats.

>> No.13721775

>>13721715
Why would you aspire for credentials instead of achievements? Aspire to be a writer or something, not a Harvard graduate. If you wanted to go be an academic or a management consultant or quant or banker, it’s important to go to an Ivy+ school for undergrad. And it’s not necessary for academia, the research capabilities just will make your life easier for grad school.

If not for one of these.. it’s important to work hard and read harder and have an interesting new perspective. Unless you’re the son of a publisher, you’re not getting new connections at Harvard that will make your publishing journey any easier. Most people are Ivies are just harder working normies who want prestige and feel entitled to success, you’re not going to meet the next Roth or Eliot or Joyce in your freshman theory class or whatever. I mean you might, but it’s the exception, not the rule. There’s a higher chance at Harvard than a state school, but both are fairly close to zero. You might meet a few really awesome professors at best.

If you work hard and try to be the best you, then Harvard might be rewarded to share in your success if they let you in at some point. If not, then their loss. Make it their loss, not yours. The best of the best who came from Harvard were the best of the best not because of Harvard; Harvard is the best of the best because of them.

I just want to be able to prove to myself that I can perform well in an academic environment. I was never a good student, and the only way I can ever feel like I’m worth anything is to succeed in that sort of academic environment.

not him, different Harvardanon. sorting is supposedly random, though I have suspicions that people in certain extracurriculars, like the Crimson or sports, are more likely to be put into Adams or river housing for geographical convenience. otherwise, there’s nothing substantially different between the houses. IMO, Cabot is kind of a dump, with facilities worse than freshman housing, housing that’s not connected to the dining hall (meaning rain/blizzard treks for food occasionally), and lots of weird dead-end passages, but that’s not the fault of the students.

Cabot might not even be referring to the house itself, but some other popular places on campus too. i.e. the Cabot science library.

I wouldn't mind as much if they didn't allow their dumb spawns ala Liz Harman climb up the ranks. All and all Jewish nepotism doesn't really build something better in the long term, for all the smart Jews I've encountered there are plenty of braindead ones that you can tell are simply being raised up to a level you don't see with any other race.

I am an undergrad and I'd actually be really down to start a literary movement of some sort. Like just an anonymous magazine or something, that highlights the creations of undergraduates / maybe graduates. But it would have to be a special type of unique that would make it worth being showcased, especially in the current milieu of oversaturated publications / nepotism that makes most literary circles not worth involving oneself in at all.

Anon, just being there gives you privilege. Having access to the space gives you privileges that others don’t, and if/when you graduate those privileges will intensify manifold. This shouldn’t be novel information to you. Check yourself, and use your privilege constructively, because denying it will do no good whatsoever for anyone.

More of a general academic question: I am currently studying in Vienna and will finish my MA in comparative lit next semester. I would like to do a phd afterwards but I am also thinking about doing another MA (in philosophy). How much time does a phd usually take up? Would it be possible to do the MA in philosophy simultaneously?
