Why You Should Be An Artist

Being an artist is challenging a lot of the time, yet it is the most rewarding thing I think I have ever done in my life. Art is something that for me is a way to release feelings and express myself. It is basically my stress reliever. For many of my fellow artist friends, it is the same way. Art is fun to us, it is something we love to do and we are good at it.

Yet, I've noticed that many people I talk to who are amazing at art do not pursue it. Why is that?

There are many reasons why people don't pursue art but the most common reasons why many do not pursue an art career is because they don't think they can make it in the industry or they think they won't be able to make money to sustain themselves and their lifestyles.

But this isn't the case. If you are an artist, you should wholeheartedly go for what you love and chose an art industry path. I could write you a list of over 100 reasons as to why you should pursue an art-based career but I will just leave it to the top three reasons.

The first reason is that you found something you truly love and have fun doing. Being a college student and talking to many other people in different majors, I cannot express how many people dislike their major but are doing it because it is the best way to get money. You are fortunate enough to find something you love and what you can do for the rest of your life, many aren't so lucky.

The second reason is that it is so rewarding being an artist. You are able to market yourself on platforms such as Instagram, Holondis, Art Amino, and many other apps. Also, when you create art and share it on these platforms you get to reach out to your followers and you get to meet fellow artists.

The last reason is that in this day and age, the art industry is booming! As well, careers such as animation, graphic design, and interior design, comic book illustration, and web developer (just to name a few) are in high demand because now everything is digital. The world is changing in favor for the artists.

It's scary picking a career that you ultimately do for a good portion of your life or even your entire life, but trust yourself and believe in your choices. you will know what you want to do.

So if you are an artist who is really considering an art career, I suggest you should. It will be the best decision of your life and life is too short not to do the things you love!

Have a great day!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
