Since this is freestyle this is what I’m thinking about
I did not go into an art school because I was uncertain if I wanted to do that as a career. There is a lot of pressure to get a good paying job, even on myself. One of the main reasons I wanted to go to college is so I had a better chance of being financially stable later on in life, not necessarily rich but not living paycheck to paycheck either. I mainly chose LSA because I could just switch majors if I really wanted to, I am still hesitant on the idea of having to narrow in on one single route.
I think I have started to realize that maybe I should seriously consider going into the arts for a career, or something related to that. I thought about it well before but I think this experience is starting to solidify the idea. I am still uncertain of what I want to do exactly because I do not know where I am going to fit into that. My favorite part of my internship is working on this thing called the living wall. This has the agenda, little polaroid pictures that I take of the students, hand drawn and printed pictures, and anything else to reflect on the day. I love making the pictures but I have also enjoyed interacting with the students and walking around all day to see everything going on in the summer program.
I am going to continue to study International Studies and have a minor in Art & Design. I do not think I am going to transfer to STAMPS or another art school since I am still interested in learning about International Studies. I feel like it would benefit me to continue even if I might not actually go into that field after college.
