this term i've learned:

that I suck at life.  and philosophy.  maybe more with philosophy than life.
This terrifies me.  I'm supposed to be the straight A student that gets into the killer law school.  Getting less than 80% in philosophy, which apparently is great for the LSATs and Law School, is making my confidence start to plummet.

at least this made me feel a little better, from "The Top 10 Most Worthless College Majors":

Why It Won’t Help You Get a Job: This isn’t ancient Greece: No one is going to pay you money, or allow you to sodomize their attractive son, in exchange for your knowledge of existence. Never has there been an employer who’s said “Man, we’re having all kinds of problems, I wish we had someone on our team who could reference and draw conclusions from the story of Siddhartha that would pull up our fourth quarter numbers. I took many philosophy classes and it involved reading and smoking a shit pile of weed. You don’t need to pay 20,000 dollars a year to do that. All you need is twenty dollars and a library card.
What Job You’ll End Up With: Thanks to your extensive knowledge of philosophy, you’re now self-aware enough to know that most jobs out there will make you totally miserable. So most likely you’ll wait tables part time and hope someone starts paying you for the bi-monthly entries on your blog.
P.S.  playstation pipe = hilarity.
Well at least it made me laugh.  Better than tears.
Ok back to philosophy now.  Apparently that's all I'm going to be doing until Christmas, and it might not even get me an A.  Great.
