ITALIAN OR PHILOSOPHY??? I have to pick one by tomorrow morning D: - August 26th 2009, 09:32 PM

So I'm registering for college and I can only do Italian OR Philosophy (along with probably Psychology and Linguistics) and I can't pick between them. Please help me choose and give any advice.


I've always been interested in Philosophy. But it's a lot of work, especially if I do Psychology too, and I don't want to overload myself ~ I'm NOT a good dealer with stress.


And I've started teaching myself Italian this summer and I love it. I already know a fair few basics and I fucking adore languages. But I could always keep teaching that myself outside of college...it's harder to teach yourself Philosophy.


So what to CHOOSE?????

I think Philosophy's better and like you said you can continue learning the language outside of college.

But at the end of the day it's your choice and I'm going to sound really cheesy here but just listen to what you're heart is saying to you.

It is a personal thing but for some reason I think Italian, but then it would depend on you personally as well as possibily what you plan to major in.

If I was in your position, I would take philosophy. You can read some books and whatnot, but you can't match the atmosphere of a discussion of philosophy. I am also not a fan of lanuages, but that's just me. Learning another language just seems...boring I dunno.

I chose Italian. I'd already chosen Philosophy and was halfway through registering for my lectures when I realised that none of the stuff I was reading about the lectures sounded like it would interest me. Crazy, because I've been planning on doing Philosophy for months!! But Italian it is....turns out Italian is my major now O.O
Italian, Linguistics, and some English and some Psychology (though the good lectures had filled up by the time I registered so I only got two...I hope they're good..)

I'd say do Italian now and take some philosophy later unless you really love philosophy and want to study it.

I'm glad you came to a decision! I hope you love it.

I'll go ahead and close the thread now. [:
