    I don't know what to do. I'm so upset, and I can't do anything about it, except put a stupid little post on the internet. How ineffectual is that exactly? A large part of how I fucking see my life and self just fucking died, and its epitaph is a pointless little post. A nice metaphor for the rest of my existance. I want to die

    there are three art colleges. One is too far way. the other also rejected me.


    I did very well in my Leaving Cert, I can go to just about any school I want - to do just about any course. Except the art colleges - I had to prove I was good at art for them. Clearly I failed



    i feel like ive been kicked in the stomach

    i love how you word things...

    you sure are an effective writer... *hint* *hint*

    or just sit back and keep telling yourself "ehh im just ahead of my time, their too feeble to understand me"

    nah seriously tho its cool, i didnt go to college so i can get my certifications for building computers an everything, the test cost 300 dollars and i failed it twice, i spent 2,500 on courses and w00t there went 3100 dollars of the money i earned picking cigarette butts up outta the car parkinglot in front of a major route so i was seen by like millions of cars a day. i was only getting paid at like 7 something an hour so that money was like 19 years of work... get your shit together and try again i guess...

    my cousin got into the new york college of arts or some shit by drawing a sheet on a clothsline blowing in the wind while people were getting rejected doing their rendition of famous art pieces and shit who woulda thought?

    im about to take a shower and start studying again, probably to only spend 300 more dollars to be told im a failure again. i figure if i hit 6 or 7 times ill just get certified :lol: or become homeless trying

    See thats just it. I'm expected to succeed. By everyone - My family, my girlfriend and my friends all believe that. Some time in the past a random teacher told my parents that I was intelligent and gifted. And like all parents they took it to heart and ignored all the evidence to the contrary.

    And they all believe it with such enthusiasm. Even my friends, who should be begrudging and sketptical about such things, believe that I can turn my hand to anything. And it just isn't true.


    Kudos to you for paying your way. You can hold your head up regardless of what you achieve in tests - you are acing the hard part.

    real job doesn't = desk job. there are more options open than sitting behind a computer. as you said, your leaving cert kicked ass, you have your pick of what you want to do (well, except art college). but seriously. you don't need an A at school to mean your are good at art or whatever.

    I know. I should have been a bit clearer about my meaning.

    I refuse to attend a course based on it's job prospects. I want to attend a course that I feel will better myself as a human being. For me, that does not include buisness, computers, IT-anything or any of those airy-fairy "communications" courses



    (now this is not meant to piss on other people's courses. I don't feel that these would better *me* as a person.)

    who the fuck says your gonna be broke and homeless when u get out of art schooL? i always hear that ignorant bullshit. i know plenty of people that get out of art school and are very happy with their lives.

    bodice...have u thought about coming to the states for art school? your more likely to be accepted here since you'd be an international student. try looking into SCAD (savannah college of art and design) its a great school.

    again, real job doesn't equal anything you stated there.

    sometimes you just have to swallow your pride and get on with your shit.
