Sometimes I think about how I am taking my life... Like today, I had a very deep insight of my professional plans,I saw that the college I wanted to go to don't have a fine art course, and nearly none of the colleges here have it. I became very desperate at the time, thinking what would I do, my art is the only thing I know how to do... Then a phrase I always told myself about diplomas popped in my mind: "There is no use of a diploma when you don't know how to do what you studied for, knowing how to do it is more important than a piece of paper..."
Then another thing about me had my attention: I'm still in school,finishing my high-school... I am still a kid... I don't know how to drive neither have a car... I still have to call my mom every time I go out and have to be home by nightfall... I still watch spongebob and the holidays special... I still love toys stores and dinossaurs(and this will probably never change xD)... So... in conclusion, I am pushing myself too hard... my first job as an illustrator was when I was when I was barely 17... I want to try... to experiment... to have the chance to have success or fail by my own... I want to feel complete as an artist, free to try whathever I want...
So I decided: When I finish this school year, I will take my time to grow not only as an artist, but as a person, I will finish school and study art in a private art school, take as many courses I can from there, and study art by myself...
Good things always come to those ho do what they love the most...
