Student Philosopher: Guys in Sandals – Free Ebook

okay so you might be wondering does the world really need another YouTube blogger and believe me I’m the first to wonder because what I guess I’m not a natural extrovert but I decided to go ahead with this anyway because at the end of the day I believe that philosophy deserves to be a bigger thing out there and well I guess that’s what this vlog is going to be about my name’s Emma but basically everyone calls me Anne I’m 20 years old and I’m living in London currently but originally I’m from this place just outside will Chelmsford I’m a year and my degree into my philosophy degree at London University I think everyone looks at you a bit strange when you say that as though as if like to study philosophy you need to be graybeard and trapped like big sandals or something not there’s something wrong with that I guess it is a bit weird that I am studying philosophy it’s kind of strange like how I got into it actually because when the first in my family to go to university so my dad manages a warehouse and my mom will she used to do bookkeeping but that was before she got really sick quite a while ago I’m the oldest of three I’ve got a little sister who’s 15 and then my little brother he’s only 10 I think people are quite weird about philosophy I mean I found anyway that generally people sort of think it’s a big waste of time or something and then it’s funny because those same people see nothing wrong in just you know spending a whole weekend slumped in front of the TV watching I don’t know like Britain’s Got Talent I think when you tell them that you’re studying philosophy they sort of think it’s a bit maybe like self-indulgent and pretentious and you know they just they assume that it’s just thinking about the meaning of life or like studying Plato something I have taken our big loan to get to University and yeah that is a worry but sometimes I just think if you’re passionate about something you just have to go for it my course has been it’s been fascinating so far I mean not always great but definitely always interesting it’s in one of those older colleges so in a way it’s quite formal which I think I like the people are a bit of around a bunch to be honest but I think I would like to get to know some of them better there’s only two women which and one of them is a virtual student and then there’s like 15 guys or something it tends to be a bit like that on courses I don’t really mind that so much I think it’s quite nice to be a girl doing something that for so long has just been guys so I guess that’s what I’m going to try and do over the next few months so I think just talk you guys through one going through on my course and maybe try and explain some of the big ideas I’m coming across or we’ll try to anyway and just try and open people’s eyes to some of the amazing things that are out there and like the world of philosophy and well yeah we’ll see I guess that’s it for now so tune in next time
