    Im going to be entirely honest. Im entering my 4th year of University now. Im pretty tired of it, im so sick of literature reviews and when I hear "Peer reviewed" , my penis retracts into my body.

    That is entirely irrelevant, the thing I would like to highlight, is that if you cant even put capitals on any of those listed fields/careers, it is going to be highly fucking unlikely that you're going to succeed in any of them, seeing as you'd lose 15% on any marked piece of work for poor grammar.

    Im not saying it has to be perfect, mine isn't, but that's just downright unproffesional of you and you need to sort it out.

    Oh and after reading your previous posts, apparently you want to go to Durham. Let me get this straight, you honestly believe you can get into Durham University, you're not just stupid, you're insane.

    I dont think you fully understand the sheer fucking chasm of intelligence between you, and the level of an average student at Durham. I dont think they'll even let into the country, let alone one of the top 10 universities in the country.

    Why is the OP cross posted from some Uchi-Ryu forum?

    I dont see why I cant go to durham. I read anthropology texts, I process them. I read walter rodney for fun, etc. I know that with the correct curriculum of mental improvement I will be smart enough to compete with those types of students and Im talking with my professors about getting the research opportunities needed to make myself a viable option for a place like durham or the center for african oriental studies, london. The question is, is it wise to pursue Evolutionary anthro at durham. One of my professors thinks no, but I happen to relish the idea. Let me tell you something. For many years I wasted my life trying to be an afro haitian cuban styled conguero or mandink djembefola. people that excel at this type of music are initiated into african religions and secret societies since the age of, for example 8.. so i have squandered some of my 20s trying to play like them and get initiated into their ceremonies. I could have been reading john mbiti, famous african religious scholar, but I wanted first hand experience. Yes this was a difficult lesson to learn, but I am buckling down on my studies now and on the path to make it to get the mental discipline and fortitude that would be expected to participate at a university like durham. I dont think I have displayed a lack of intelligence, all I did was regurgitate my biased views on shotokan wing chun and what I think is cool about the animal forms. you dont have to be intelligent or non intelligent to do that. and that is all i have given you.

    OK Thank you for the advice.

    1) Are you of African descent?
    2) What college are you attending in Tallahassee that has a track record of admittance to Durham in anthropological studies?

    Not what I meant. I mean why ask in both places when you are a two year member over there? Are you studying Uchi-Ryu? You didn't even mention it.

    No.

    I attend Florida State.


    I have thought about these relevant points, but I think that the system is also unfair.

    If I can process the material and contribute to the field, than there is no reason in my opinion why I shouldnt be allowed to pursue schooling at a place like Durham.

    The sad thing (for me) is that I could have gone to a better university out of high school. I could have gone to Morehouse with some black friends, but I didnt. I suppose that would have put me in a better place. But Hey. I am glad to be where I am. Im glad I discovered anthropology and archaeology and I hope life lets me make a career out of it.
