How does /lit/ deal with living with non-literary roommates?
I'd like to find someone who can enjoy classical, art, and philosophy to a similar degree, but as a student, most of my friends are too broke to get a place together, and we're all subjected to worse conditions.
Maybe share some bad experiences for entertainment?
I haven't gotten that far, I'm still an undergraduate studying at a JC. It's a completely different experience when you've got one foot in academia and the other in "the real world". It's made me far more moderate than liberal and fairly cynical of humankind. Most people capitalize by exploiting students in my condition and I do shit work for little pay.

I'm trying to find an ebook/.pdf for Difference and Repetition.
It's fine if it's a legitimate link that I have to pay for, I'm sure it'll be cheaper than buying a physical copy anyway. It doesn't seem to be on the typical ebook sites/stores.
This has about the first 30 pages or so but that's about it.

What is a book I can read to help me overcome my realization that I'm a fraud?
I'm specifically referring to saying you'll accomplish something but never doing it and putting off your hopes/dreams for so long until you realize you don't care anymore.
You aren't a fraud, you're procrastinating indefinitely. That isn't fraudulent, it's lazy. Chances are, you know you don't have talent and so are afraid to even start something.
You special snowflake baby bitch.
