Being an Artist

Once again, being an art student has shown me that it is no easy degree to earn. Having to earn a degree means hard work. This has been especially daunting for me today as I realized just how little I know about art, despite the fact that I know more about art than my entire family combined(with the exclusion of my little sister. She knows almost as much as I know).

It's intimidating to know how much work I'm going to have to do in order to get a good grade this semester. Thing is, before I know it, the semester will have flown by and I'll realize that though the class was hard, I was able to finish it and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

But besides all that, I feel a satisfaction deep within my soul that I'm finally on the path to being a real artist and knowing that I can do it if I can just try. The worst that could happen is that I will not graduate, but I'll still be an artist anyway. It's in the blood.

And now for a more interesting side note: starting today, at the end of my blog, I'm going to try to put up the random quote of the day. It will usually be something I've heard a non-famous person, i.e., my friend say or something that I've heard in the past and found funny. Today it is this:
Ker: What if your mom turned into a spider?
Steph: My mother would never turn into a spider!

Me Me Me

Yeah, everything in the American society is about me and what I want. Being an artist in America means that I will show the world everything about me in my art, whether they want to see it or not. Some will hate it, some will love it, but most will be "meh"-like in their attitude. As for me, which this blog is about, I just want to make what I want to make. Perhaps I will share the real me, or maybe the me I am when I'm trying to be someone else, or maybe I'll be the me I am whenever I'm trying to be cool. Whatever it is, I'll always be interested. After all, who isn't interested in themselves?
