I use it to write letters to my qt3.14 penpal in France. It's a league ahead of typing it on Word and then printing it, but also not as tedious and messy as my handwriting it.

Of course, I'm not writing to her every day, so I usually use it rewrite my course notes. I sometimes use it to proofread drafts of essays by rewriting them on it. I don't actually use a typewriter to draft essays; that doesn't leave me much room to revise as I go along.

Why the fuck are you and so many other people getting so buttblasted at my having a typewriter? It's not like they cost a fucking fortune either; I found mine in fantastic condition at an estate sale for $10. Getting to experience what a typewriter can offer is worth so much more than a Hamilton. At least try it out before you start shitting on it.

I like learning more than I do reading, I'm afraid to admit.

My experience so far as an English major has been pretty boring. It's just been a bunch of reading and writing—which is fine and dandy with me, I'm not failing any courses or anything like that—but I've been doing that all my life. It's hardly what I'm looking for when I'm after a worthwhile collegiate career. I'm not really learning anything new: I already know how to read, which books to read, and how to write. There's nothing new for me here.

Linguistics is an incredibly broad field that's relevant to my interests, while still being somewhat new to me, and that's exactly what I'm after.

I don't mean to talk shit about English, though. I might have just had shit professors, be shit myself, or a combination of the two.

That's interesting, I haven't found it to be that way at all. I think my reading and writing skills have improved and I gain new insights all the time. Academia is my end goal, and having that mindset helps make the experience better. It's more rewarding and more interesting to study lit if you put what you're reading into the frame of ideas that matter to you. If you discover that you're interested in pastoral literature, for example, you should make an effort to read academic texts about pastoralism, take courses that are likely to be realted, talk to professors who are interested in the same thing, etc. That's been my experience and I'm very happy to be in English. I've also been lucky enough to have had a few profs and TAs I really liked and trusted and who had a lot of faith in my abilities, so that's definitely a factor. Doing the other major in American Studies has been good too because I totally know what you mean when you say you like learning more than reading, and it's been a lot of fun to take courses in so many different subjects under the AmStud umbrella.

Still, I'm surprised that linguistics is the second choice. I know if I had to do something else, it would be History.

I joint majored in Comp Sci and English, and found that things didn't get interesting until my third year. My uni is pretty small, so I found my favourite professors and took every class of theirs that I could. Turns out that the subjects I was interested in mattered far less than who was teaching them. I turned down Irish Lit to take Invention of Printing, and even though I'm not a fan of Swift, Pope, Milton, the history we read about and the students I worked with more than made up for it.

Are you referring to those faggy filters for people who roll their own cigarettes but are afraid of tar? He also has Kant and Junger. Homosexual at most, not a girl.
