I had a good day today, I was a bit scared of it in a way. My visual arts teacher came to visit me and had organised for myself and another girl to visit an artist. I really had no idea what it was going to be like, but I found him to be so interesting. The way he talked about his work and the processors was really in depth and amazing. The other thing was, he was talking and I could understand him and someone else would ask a question that was irrelevant to the whole discussion. Creative people seem to be on a different level of thinking and it’s wonderful, I am not saying they are on a level of being above everyone, they just think in different ways.
As this year is my last year, I have to do a Body of Work for visual arts, or like a major artwork that is submitted for marking. I decided to do mine on a series of Digital Images that relate to topics in our society today, such as War and Peace, Life and death, Youth etc. He was really interested to see my works, and I was very suprised when he said they were really great, and was giving me all these tips about ways I should step forward with this. I was shocked because he is a very truthful character and wasn’t thinking he would say anything like this.
Today has also been a day, I have started to think about my options. I have never thought about going to university or college, but now I am in two minds. Should I try, should I not, what do I do. I guess alot of people find themselves in this place. It is just that alot of weird things have been happerning and signs pointing to this direction, but for me this would mean a total change of lifestyle, but the time is ticking away and I need to think about it seriously. Which for me could take some time, as I usually just like to float along, like the typical pisces.
Thanks for all the comments, I hope to return them all soon.
