I think my tolerance levels for SJ hate have just about plummeted into the negatives.

Maybe it is completely stereotypical, but I really do love doing certain things during certain times of the year. Swimming in summer, eating and drinking pumpkin shit in October, peppermint around Christmas.
Something about things being "seasonal" really do many them more enjoyable for me. I know not everyone's the same... but fuck, I like when things feel "special" because of the seasonal nature to them. I like being able to find enjoyment in little things like that.
Pumpkin just don't taste as good when it ain't October.

Hah, well in spring it's finally not cold as shit anymore and not quite too hot, so it's nice to just go outside and go on walks. Weather that's good for being outside is a rare occurrence in Arizona. It's hard to enjoy outdoor activities any other time of the year. :p
Frisbee! What a fantastic spring activity. I wish I had a frisbee. And friends to play frisbee with.

Why is it a stereotype that S types hates philosophy? I took a handful of philosophy classes and have enjoyed all of them, outperforming most of the class, even. I also considered majoring in philosophy but decided there wasn't much I could do with that since I don't want to go to law school. It's true that I prefer only talking about philosophy in more of a lighthearted way and get bored after a while and prefer more down to earth conversations, but that doesn't mean that I hate it, lol.

When I uploaded my avatar, I thought Gidget was a cat, but now I'm not sure. It's the fluffy tail. I don't think cats have fluffy tails; that's more of a dog feature.Ann Coulter has become the Rosa Parks of our generation. I applaud her courage in the face of ugly mob intimidation at college campuses.

I've enjoyed philosophy classes when they've helped explain cultural phenomena. When they've helped me understand the world at large. When they've explained the history of the modern world (intellectual or otherwise). I have NOT enjoyed philosophy classes when they've basically been academic circle-jerks.Originally Posted by Nørrsken impersonating EJCC

I didn't hate it and was able to get into it, though it may have helped that in both philosophy classes I took, the teacher chemistry was all but perfect for me. Away from those settings, I haven't studied it much.
Somewhere, I read that type is less about what we're interested in than why it interests us and how we learn it. That sounds right.
