Introduce yourself here <-----

This is the place to shave off that long white beard and stop being philosophical; a forum for members to just talk like normal human beings.

Hello ILP folks...Savvy here and I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm starting university next week and as fate would have it, I ended up choosing an Intro to Philosophy as an optional course (registered at the last minute plus my computer, the b*tch decided to give me a hard time).

Practically, all my life, I have been preparing to get into med school so I gear towards the natural sciences. Therefore the study of philosophy is really new to me so I'm shaking in my babe boots right now. Since I need to maintain an excellent GPA, I could use all the help I can find (self-interest pure and simple :D ). I've searched the philosophy forums universe and ended up here. After reading some of the discussions, I'm still kinda lost but hopefully I can be inspired and would learn something from you guys. Salut.

So how come you chose philosophy as an optional course? Do you possess some sort of fundamental knowledge about the history of philosophy and the terminology or are you a blank slate? I assume you have an optional course and a main, so what's your main?

Only two days here and already facing an inquisition? :wink: I hope to get into the Biology Honours program and I chose it primarily because it fits perfectly my schedule. And fortunately for me, a fundamental knowledge of Philosophy's history and terminology is not a prerequisite, otherwise I'm f*cked. Btw, are you a student too (sorry I'm the new kid on the chopping block so I don't know yet who's who or who's what here)?

Monsieur Orbie: Thanks for the heads-up.

Some of us can seem a bit crazy, but we're more than qualified to get you through an intro philosophy course. Feel free to post up any questions, or things you'd like to discuss.

Only 'a bit crazy'? I read through some of the discussions here in Off Topic (taking one baby step at a time) and a bit crazy is a tad bit of an understatement lolz....so to quote our little orphan Annie "I think I'm gonna like it here.....cheers guys...

Who's side are you on?
I got a philosophy degree, I'm not upset that I can't find work as a philosopher. It was my decision, and I knew that it wasn't a money making degree, so I get money elsewhere.

Hi there. I am not using my real name here. My username is a double entendre. Try to figure out what it means and get back to me. By the way, how do you set your signature here? Or must I wait to be vetted first?

The first prison I ever saw had inscribed on it 'CEASE TO DO EVIL: LEARN TO DO WELL,' but as the inscription was on the outside, the prisoners could not read it... Good to have you back.

I thought you were dead.

Yeah, you and everybody else.

Well, if you were as sexy as Snake and you walked down the street with a slow sexy gait showing off your muscles and eye patch, your head might swell a bit too. At times like this, the zips come in mighty handy. I know. Trust me.
