Book number 2 - The philosophy of religion

The Philosophy of Religion – TrΓ¨s difficile πŸ™

Don’t worry though it’s just a cold I got (I don’t often have them) and its not that bad.

I’ve still been around. Just not got around to posting much. Enjoying Exploring Philosophy but finding the module a real drag. The first essay was probably the worst piece of work I have ever submitted and was under the word count. Still I’m looking ahead to improve on the second. The second book is the Philosophy of Religion. I’m struggling mostly with the concept of putting an ‘I’ in an essay and forming arguments in philosophy more then before.

This module is gonna be a real struggle. I knew it anyway. My brain just doesn’t function the way a philosophers would. Yet, I’ll try. I need this module. It compulsary πŸ™

Had my tutorial at the London School of Economics again yesterday. I think more of these sessions are needed its the discussion factor I am lacking. I don’t get to talk to anyone about the arguments or philosophy which you do need. That’s my one criticism. Overall, I feel negative about the whole module today. I just wanna get it out the way and onto Politics and Economics.

Outside the degree a bit..

I’m going to begin saving for a new car soon (woop). Ages before I can get one though. There were plenty of things I wanted to say, however when I opened up to start writing I forgot everything. Ah well.

Btw, For those wondering what module and degree I’m doing and where etc. I am aiming to achieve a degree in Politics, Philosophy and Economics. You can find out more about my current module here.

The blog is running on a new superduper betterer server πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜›
All high speed and stuff. Much better.

Peace all. My twitter thing on the left no longer works. I’ll get it fixed soon but you can see my instagrams πŸ™‚

TMA 7 of DD101 gone.. and some new updates!

Politics and Philosophy books

Well, I just hurriedly sent off my last assignment for DD101 my first open university module. Happy to get it out the way. Feels like I just sent a heap of junk in though!

I went to a Language taster evening at the open university’s centre in Camden on Wednesday. I actually surprised myself with how much French I actually remembered!! Anyway the real eye catcher was the lovely girl opposite me and we kept stealing glances. She spoke perfect French as her grandmother was French. Very attractive!

I’m now fully registered up for A222 and officially started my next module exploring philosophy. I’m holding off on doing two modules as I really don’t want to overload myself especially as philosophy requires a clear mind!

I love Camden town and there are always so many things going on and pretty ladies.
The atmosphere and vibe is amazing, when I’m not sprinting to uni! I need to spend more time there πŸ˜€

I plan on joining the gym on payday too and actually going. So lookout for a fitter mixedmatt! Also in the not to distant future I hope to get my feet back into a go-kart again… When I have the time and funds. Hope all my faithful readers are fine…

Love you all πŸ™‚

Received materials for my next module

Philosophy Material for Module A222

Not posted in a while. Sorry πŸ™

I received my materials last week for A222 Exploring Philosophy (pictured) and DD203 Power, etc which I did put on hold until I finish A222 but the materials still came anyway. I need to contact the uni about that.

I purchased a iPad mostly for studying the second module. It’s been a bit cumbersome with all these books so I’m hoping I can unlock the power of the iPad to help me.

On a side note. If any one has recommendations for good applications please can you suggest some to me? Also I have a problem with iTunes not converting any film at all. Is this how it always behaves its such a pain in the neck.

Anyway staying on course. I’m excited to started A222 but nervous about finishing DD101. I’m planning the last assignment and it’s a little tricky. It’s about legitimising the state and democracy.

It all seems real. I’m starting another level 2 module again for the first time in a long time and I can’t wait. The Open University has shown me what real university education should be like so far. Well we pay enough for it. Traditional universities are far too complacent I believe.

If anyone can give me some assistance with the iPad and how to convert files. From both torrents and other means please post below. Thank you πŸ˜‰

A girlfriend? Hmm

A few things annoy me. Such as when my family ask if I have a girlfriend. Its not any of your business so why continually ask? I suppose its a way of striking up convo. So so irritating and I get asked a lot.

Another is my youngish looks. People think I’m younger then I actually am due to my baby face. Ah well. I need to just stop moaning I guess. Looking young and being single is a blessing πŸ™‚

What a useless post…

Reading Chapter 7 (Governing problems) then Western Philosophy

Western Philosophy - An Anthology

I’m reading Western Philosophy – By John Cottingham

I’m now back on track on week 27 of my course. Reading chapter 7 out of my module materials (Governing problems). I’m going to do everything I can to keep up and not fall behind till the end πŸ™‚

I’ve started reading the Western Philosophy book I ordered from Amazon. It’s really thick and seems like it will require heaps of concentration. I’m going to read some of it later I hope. I really can’t afford to fall behind with two modules, with one it’s really tricky catching up let alone two! I really like some of the quotes though. Really want to read it more but need to find some time.

I bought a new watch and it arrived last week. Had to have a few links removed at G.Mantella in Enfield Town. It’s real shiny though. Might take a piccy πŸ˜‰

Last week I downloaded John Lennon’s Discography. Mainly just because I wanted to hear imagine because it sounded amazing at the closing ceremony. I’ve developed a new enthusiasm for his music. It was already there (a friend in Argentina shes a big fan) but I didn’t take that much notice.

Anyway, I look forward to getting week 27 out the way so I can move on with closing out my module and I need to stay ahead or with the weeks at least πŸ˜›

No progress on TMA 6 today

Was ready to attack the essay yesterday. Not today!!

Was ready to attack the essay yesterday. Not today!!!

Today I done nothing except go to work and eat. Pretty much it really. So frustrated really. Just frustrated with everything. Don’t know why really. I do I guess but don’t want it broadcast everywhere. Maybe I need to stop being so frustrated?
Who knows πŸ™

I’ve been really busy, if it’s not work. It’s the assignments. I’m trying to fix my laptop too. Been broken for about a year. Think it’s the backlight inverter.

Don’t know why but I’m pretty down. Can’t explain it. Guess its just one of those things πŸ™ πŸ™ πŸ™

Things will turn around soon.

Nearly finished with my first module

Yup, that’s right. I’m getting closer. Been writing up TMA 6 scared it’s waffle though! I’m desperate to reach my own targets which I set myself each time for the next TMA πŸ™‚

I’ve been amazed by the Olympics. The opening ceremony, the events and just how amazingly well team GB has been doing! Its hard to concentrate on anything else. It’s hard to keep up with blogging too.

I’m ready to start two new modules over the next two months DD203 power, dissent, equality and protest and AA303 Exploring Philosophy. Ive ordered a book on western philosophy from Amazon that’s recommended for the course. Its taken two days to dispatch must be the new policy with their free delivery. In the past the free delivery rivalled first class! :p

Can’t wait to see the modules go. It will be sooooo hard fitting the time in. I struggle now and I’m lazy. Let alone with two level 2 modules. I’ll post a photo when I get my book and read the intro. Maybe you’ll see it on my instragrams.

I’ve wrote this using my iPhone WordPress app so apologies for any typos πŸ™‚

Take care readers. Enjoy the Olympics the soon to be Paralympics and/or whatever else your doing!
