Destrokk Posted November 29, 2013 Share Posted November 29, 2013 let me ask a forum dedicated to an english alternative *cough*crappy pop*cough* rock band about the decisions in my life :smiley: jk guys i love you all and i met some of my best friends here and i'd be interested to know what some members of this forum who are older and have more life experience have to say about my situation i'm a year and a half away from graduating high school and people tell me to just relax and not think about it but i have nooooooooooooooooooooooo idea what the hell to do after school :sad: i really love to paint and everything about art has been my life but my family has been going through tough times where i can't afford to go art school and i often hear stories that its a dead end place to go because an art degree won't help you in getting a job (especially in these times) also what i mean that i can't afford it (i could get a scholarship) is that i can't afford more time not having a job or enough to move out of the apartment, where i'm sort of forced to go to some technical school to get a degree to get a job but i really don't want to spend 2 years or more of my life in something i don't want to do but i feel like in my situation and in these times where the economy is shit it's the only option available? i'm afraid that if i don't dedicate my time/money in art i won't ever get really good at it and i'll miss out new techniques and i'll never become an artist, or i could just paint a lot and get into the art scene in my city but if i don't have money i wont be able to expand and move to L.A but if i have a job i won't have enough time or it will be in the way of getting better :( but i want to help my mom financially and i'd go more into detail of whats going on where its urgent to have money but idk maybe you could pm me :uhoh: so it's either two paths that i'm thinking of; go to art school and spend my time in art and get a job that pays minimum wage (idk if that will be enough to live alone???) or go to some lame ass technical school, finish it then find a job and live in my old house in mexico (alone or with my friends, i don't pay rent) and THEN start getting my art/music out there without school one option i'm reluctant to take and feel like it might depress me but the other i'm scared shitless if i'll fail and just waste my moms money in taking care of me in my 20's or is there some third, fourth, seventh option i could take???????? i also dont know if art school is even worth it and its best to just have a lot of experience in "da streets" basically Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
