    Haha yeah, I might risk my life for of Montreal if I were in your position, okay probably not. But still, I hope someday they decided to play somewhere a little closer to you and not in the winter. =)

    Haha. This is gonna be my first of Montreal experience and I'm extremely excited. As soon as I found out they were touring near me, I had to jump at the chance to see them. I hope they come by your area soon. =)

    You are a source of fine advice on whom to see at the festival!

    aye, but a TA-ship or a fellowship involves money above and beyond just tuition. at any research university, it should be enough to cover living expenses, at least during the school year... a lot of the times you're on your own for the summer, tho :)

    aye, that's actually something a good advisor will tell you - you shouldn't *pay* to go to a doctoral program in philosophy... the money you will make with it will never be enough to pay back the loans. get some good recommendations and make sure to have a couple profs check your writing sample, and any decent program will hook you up with some fellowship funding :)

    and next term i'm teaching ethics and logic (there's that logic nerd thing again ;)

    generally if you get accepted into a phd program in philosophy, that acceptance should include a tuition waiver as well as either a fellowship or a TA-ship... chances are you won't have a choice but to TA, i know i don't get to decide! but they do that for exactly the reason you say - there is NO WAY to do your graduate coursework while holding an outside job.

    I have to be strong to fight them, those evil robots. So I need to take lots of vitamins. The last three nights, apart from a run and some writing, have been backslidin' with an overabundance of vitamin A. Socializing got me goin', and goin'.... OOoo. ttyl :)

    hands-on environmental work... you're a better person than me! as far as what i'm studying, it's just as i said - phil with an emphasis on ethics & poli. i'm a long way out yet, i'm still doing coursework. as far as teaching, we'll find out... i start next semester (spring) and i'm very excited about it. i've already got my syllabi in order and have started working out lecture plans.. we'll see

    at the moment i'm an adjunct instructor and working on my phd. so what would you do in environmental ethics if you're not looking to remain in academia? i know with poli phil i've got other options, but to be honest academia is where i want to be... teaching & (especially) writing.

    best of luck to you in your applications though, especially with the GREs... they're murder.

    environmental ethics... seems to be all the rage these days. not my personal kick, but i understand the drive towards it. as far as the historical stuff, it's not among my favorites either, but my department was getting on my ass to fill out some of those gaps in my knowledge base... you'll see ;) and logic? who doesn't love logic? :P

  • strangerina

    hey that's great, i kinda thought so from your username. what programs have/are you applying to? do you know what discipline you'd like to go into? my interests are mainly ethics and poli phil, though i'm also a bit of a logic nerd.

    The DBT's were splendid. They, and we, had a lot of fun. Tea Leaf Green? Awesome. Averitt Brothers: wow! surprises: Buffalo Strange, and Speakeasy.

    Hey, our music compatibility is SUPER! I just noticed that we were listening to the same album at the same time, yet again... I reckon that's why they say our musical compatibility is SUPER! Will you marry me?

    I am SO excited about tonight. The Drive-by Truckers take the stage at 9:45 and have a two-hour set! And the weather looks great. I can't believe I am the only LastFM'er going to this festival! And tomorrow night is Tishamingo and Mofro, and Sunday is Tea Leaf Green [45 min.]. There's going to be alot of music that fits with them to learn about, too. Then, I think I'll cool it awile; rest...
