Sounds like the same thing someone would do with Facebook. Also, Skyrim!
That sounds far, far worse than it should. Ohhhh god.
I think a lot of it stemmed from his mom's disapproval of him smoking. He'd always brush his teeth right after, when, really, I didn't care about him tasting like cigarettes either. I can't say I enjoyed the habit though, so I guess there was that, and considering I complained about other random passerbys smoking, I get this odd feeling like...you know... I might possibly be biased. Only possibly though. I tried smoking once when I was young. I didn't really care for it.
That sounds interesting. The problems of my name come from people reading it, mostly. And because of people's tendencies to rearrange and fix words while reading. And suddenly, I am a whole new person. What a true artist, a martyr for the cause. You probably wouldn't like accounting with the rows and rows and columns columns of multi digit numbers that can span from way to high to way too low. And then you cry when you forget to add one, or forgot a digit in one so it screws up your math, and then you just. Reevaluate your life like. Should I readd things, or should I just go back and try to find which one I screwed up on.
As a sidenote, the captcha wants me to question everything.
Is Gaia really that good for alleviating boredom though? XP
Yeah, you can link me to your DA. And I'd be interested in seeing your more serious stuff if you ever get it somewhere in the realm of cyberspace. What other sort of things did your teacher make you draw?
It's kind of amusing, because he also smoked. He'd try to make sure the smoke didn't really reach me, and I didn't really mind it, but it's funny how worried he got over it compared to my own reactions. I suppose that's probably normal though. He was a cutie, so that might have been a factor of it not bothering me though.
How difficult is it to say your name? I know back in high school, people always screwed up my name if they read it, but nowadays, none of my college professors have messed it up. I'm sorry to hear that you ran into a lot of problems trying to go down the art path. I can't really imagine where I'd be if I was kept from making art because of allergies. Misreading numbers would probably be the part that gets you, honestly. Apart from some of the formulas, all the accounting I've had to do so far only really requires 4th grade math because a majority of it is just addition/subtraction/multiplication and such.
I actually really liked observational drawing. At least for the beginner's classes. It really helped my technical skill, though I do know what you mean by it being boring. During half the class, I'd normally be looking around at other people's works and talking to them. And my lungs will be fine hopefully. An ex had 6 cats, and I'm deathly allergic, so. That wasn't so great for them either. AND SO MANY PEOPLE SMOKE AT MY COLLEGE, WTF.
Do you have any recent art that you can show? I'm insanely curious. It seems like a lot of your teachers hated you. Or you hated your teachers. I feel you on the art on the side thing though. I know my art teachers wanted me to just pursue art, but. I don't know if I could really commit and make it my livelihood. Accounting classes were actually...surprisingly fun. I felt like I actually was learning something useful, and it isn't necessarily difficult. It was a nice couple of classes.
I actually loved the smell of the art classrooms. The art would just stick under my fingernails. Though. I was a little scared of the plastic spray adhesive. Which is a little amusing, because Sprayon is the number one typo of this alias. It sucks that you were allergic though. : ( And that your teachers hated you. My art teachers were always my favorites. I actually only really started drawing in college, so...they're kind of the reason I stuck at it for as long as I have. I probably owe them a lot. I will say that a lot of the mediums and supplies we worked with probably aren't good for my lungs though. : ( Which suck.
So many different language classes. Think you might do something with that eventually?
I've been mostly taking core classes and accounting classes. Pretty basic stuff, but god. The cultural anthropology class I'm taking is so interesting. Or maybe I just find the teacher hot. I don't even know. Probably both.
I have pretty much the same plan. I've been getting distracted by art classes, but I guess it's better to do it now while I'm still in community college then when I'm at a university.
And I see. : P I remember being all like. "ahhhh" whenever you typed French to me.
Dang, I was going to ask you if you still spoke French, but then I read your profile. So that question is pretty much wholly unnecessary. But I digress.
Thanks for the Happy Birthday wishes (again!)
And because I'm actually curious.
Are you going to college nowadays?
My friend brought up gaia, so I checked it on a whim and noticed that I never replied to your comments (I think?), so I just came here to say thanks and whatnot, despite it being at least 3 forevers by now and despite us not really being friendly friends anymore. Anywho, I hope you've done well with yourself and continue to do so. And happy belated birthday twice. Because I have no idea when your birthday is.
