"i want to be an actor when i grow up"
"well if that doesn’t work what do you want to be?"
YOU DO NOT QUESTION A CHILD’S ASPIRATIONS TO BECOME ANYTHING YOU ASSHOLE FUCKWADS LIKE IF HE SAID DOCTOR YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN NOTHING BUT ALL GUNG-HO ABOUT IT JUST NO
i hate how people think so lowly of the arts like our workloads are almost always heavier than that of other majors.
suck a dick, society. suck a dick.
While I do overwhelmingly agree with this (god knows my aspirations to write were shut down, so I didn’t even look into things like screenwriting for movies/tv, etc.) I know that people didn’t shut me down because they think ‘lowly’ of the arts.
I was shut down because that’s such a limited field. It’s difficult to make money and a decent living in the arts? There’s a limited need for things like screenwriters and artists by most societal standards. And there’s nothing wrong with having a back-up plan? A lot of making money in creative fields is being overwhelmingly talented, being in the right place at the right time, or knowing the right people. For me, that probably wasn’t going to happen.
