And these artists aren’t even the naive, I’ll make a living only with my art type people. they’re people who come from working class families who studied art and are trying to find a job to support themselves but can’t so they end up having a lot of time to just focus on their art and somehow end up filling the starving artist role.
it’s a bit…sad? tragic?
This is really sad indeed .
I am a naive person, AND I want to be a photographer . I just love photography and am really interested in it . I wanted to go to a photography school , but most of them are really expensive in France because they’re not public . Plus, my parents kind of want me to be a teacher and I know thta it’s because they’re worried for me and they want me to have a job but I’m the type of person who just doesn’t like to be told what she has to do , even though it’s good for me .
That’s why I sutdied Arts History for one year in order to take the exam for the only public school I’ve found, but you can only take this exam twice and I wasn’t ready at all sooooo, I quitted . I finally ended up sutdying English and Arts , and will eventually become a teacher some day and I think that’s sad . I still plan to go to a photography school - maybe not in France if I can find one somewhere else, I’d gladly go there- but I just feel like I’m betraying myself , and it’s sad . I guess that’s why I’m still learning about Arts , but yeah.
I’ve also been singing for 12 years and my real dream would be to sing for a living -like not the mega-superstar-kind-of-living but the I-can-pay-the-bills-and-have-a-decent-and-happy-life-kind-of-living . But that’s another story .
