well that's how you know you picked the right major ;) and nah, there are plenty of people I know who are starting school now and they're almost 25 and some people go back in their 30's and pick a whole new career. it takes time, but hey, as long as you're doing what you like it's all good!
oh pffft you are not, if anything I'm the one writing novels of texts hahaha. I don't mind at all though :D I like getting to know people better.
Aaah yeah, understandable. I've thought about that as well. Thing is, when I started school for it... I couldn't think of a single other thing I wanted to study haha. I suppose it's never too late to change though, or so I hope lol.
And jeez, it seems I keep on rambling, sorry about that haha. XD
so, so much reading :D but I'm a book nerd so it all works out lol
yeah a lot of people feel that way about advertising, even my drawing teacher talked about it. you're making less fine art and much more commercial art and some people feel confined with their creativity. but then again some people are game for that ha :P and for me it was "do I like art as a hobby or as something I'd do as a career"? I find that if i'm forced to make it I get frustrated but it's a fun thing for me when I just do it. so I'll keep taking art classes and such, just not major in it :)
Hahaha, yes screw them. >=O And attorney would be a great job as well! Must be difficult subjects to study though. :o A looooooooooot of reading I assume?
As for me and graphic design... I liked some of it, but for the most part I just don't think it was what I expected. I liked the "fine art" aspect of the courses, they were great prerequisites, but the rest of the classes seemed like they were gearing me more towards the advertising side of it and less the art aspect of it all. Sure, there's a certain appeal to getting into that advertising world, but in the end it's not really what I want to do. Choices, choices... it's all pretty tough! What made you go towards the direction you're in rather than an artistic one?
I'm getting into it because I think city education is messed up and I'd like to at least try and help fix it. If I can't for some reason, I can always be an ace attorney :'D (game pun).
graphic design in awesome! so is creative writing, anything artsy really (the two majors I was torn between were art and law lol) I understand completely, it's hard trying to pick which of all the great mediums you like the most. ugh, screw people who have their whole lives planned out in high school >_> THEY NEED TO BE CONFUSED FOR 2 YEARS LIKE US NORMAL PEOPLE.
Wow, that's definitely not something you hear everyday when asked what subject they're studying haha, nevertheless, I'm sure it's very interesting! I know next to nothing when it comes to subjects like these. I was studying graphic design myself, though I'm starting to think that perhaps I'm more interested in other forms of art, such as creative writing. Kinda feel stuck in between things though, which really sucks. I wish this kind of thing had happened earlier, like in High School rather than now lol.
the school got a huge donation and they decided to give it to the students which was nice. and they're actually not that bad, since it's summer everyone is normally in a good mood and the atmosphere is more chill and it's less time. it's a good idea :)
I don't mind at all haha, i'm studying public policy (concentrating on urban poverty & education)/pre-law. I changed my major like ten times over the past couple of years but I narrowed it down haha. any subjects you like?
haha nice! and oh yeah definitely, any band that can do that I give major props to since it's really not that easy to do. hammock? I actually think I skipped that, so i'll check them for sure :) i've been on a ~looking for new music spree~ so I happily will.
I don't blame you, ugh tution costs are so ridiculous D: and rising still! I lucked out though, I got a free ride for 2 years at a community college so I'm only paying half of what I would have if I went straight to a university. but yeah, i'm finishing up my second year this summer (whoo summer classes) and then i'm transferring.
That's fantastic, especially for The American Dollar! They happen to be one of my personal favorites; they're able to convey these great and sweet sounds without the need to make epic length pieces, which I find amazing. Another one is Hammock, please check them out some more! I adore them! They don't necessarily have that "instrumental rock" sound, it's much more an electronic and ambient... but just so beautiful.
As for college, yeah I should be, but I ended up taking a break which turned into a vacation and has been running for far too long now haha. I don't think I could afford it at the moment anyways. How about yourself?
