I really should not be in the position of having to comment on this because I love the blog and will continue to do so. I’m really happy for her that she has this blog, and I wish her success in her endeavors.
You can thank me for this, Megan. I actually wrote another post about it recently.
Megan. I love you too.
Megan, I’m in love with you. I also love her, and I wish her success, too.
I wish her success. You can thank the folks at the blog for this. She was featured on the blog and I was asked to give her a shoutout, but alas, I was unable to do so. Thanks to you Megan. And, like I told her, she really should go to college to study something that’s not photography. And she won’t. She’s a good cook, though, and I love her as a person.
I don’t know what I would do if I hadn’t gone to art school.I would either take her at her word and leave her be, or I would go and find myself some awesome art college to take her. I also would not want her to go to the same school that I went to. She seems to be a very bright girl, but she might do well to go to a school that will offer a more liberal view on the way you want to view the world.
I think art school (and the liberal arts it teaches) is a dangerous place. It seems to give too much power to the student, and as a result students who end up here end up just doing what they want to do. I can’t imagine what it would be like, being told by your parents and professors to be a professional artist. I would hate it.
I don’t think any of us will really know what we need to do to get into the art school we want to be in. We know the general direction we want to go, but it’s not really something that can be fully defined by a single individual. We can take our parents’ advice, our peers’ advice, our professors’ advice, and whatever other people have to say about what we should do we can take that advice too and see if we can figure it out.
One thing I’ve learned over the years is that many of the things we set our eyes on can be achieved by doing little things that don’t require a lot of work at all. Doing homework is one. Doing art school is another. Knowing there’s a school that will take you if you work hard enough is another.
The one thing I can say without a doubt, is that we can do anything we want to do. I know that seems cliche, but I can say it with some confidence. We can be anything we want to be, just that we have to do what it takes, and do it with passion, dedication, and dedication.
