School is really important: Reading, writing, arithmetic. But what they tend to do is teach you reading, writing, arithmetic…then teach you reading, writing, arithmetic again. Then again, then again, just making it harder and harder just to keep you busy. And that’s where I think they messed up. There should be a class on drugs. There should be a class on sex education. No, REAL sex education class, not just pictures and illogical terms…There should be a class on scams, there should be a class on religious cults, there should be a class on police brutality, there should be a class on apartheid, there should be a class on racism in America, there should be a class on why people are hungry, but there not, their class is on…gym….Their class is like Algebra. we have yet to go a store and said, “Can I have X Y + 2 and give me my Y change back, thank you.” You know?…Like foreign languages. I think that they are important, but I don’t think it should be required. Actually, they should be teaching you English, and then teach you how to understand double talk, politician’s double talk. Not teaching you how to understand French and Spanish and GERMAN. When am I going to Germany? I can’t afford to pay my rent in America! How am I going to Germany?

I am allowed to do things that make me happy.

I am allowed to do things that make me happy.

I am allowed to do things that make me happy.

It’s not a waste of time because it makes me happy.

And that is important.

artist-confessions:

What I really want to do in life is become a concept artist for movies and video games and the like. I’m not even close to good enough right now. Part of me thinks that I never will be, and another part wouldn’t give up without trying.
I just hope that the drowning in debt won’t be too painful.
