At the beginning of this school year, I had very high expectations for how I wanted it to go. And for my art career, they were even higher. So much that I decided to take three hours of art a day, and apply to the College of Creative studies. It was fine, at first. I had some inspiration, and I made some art. And then, over at CASA, things went south. The class was not what I expected. It was a creative environment, yes, but not a supportive one. The majority of these kids already had scholarships to CCS and years of experience and access to the best supplies. I did not. So eventually, I dreaded going every day. I lost any and all inspiration for visual arts. I dropped out of CASA. I realised I wasnt doing this type of art for myself, but to fit in with people who I had thought were my friends. So I stopped taking it so seriously. After I stopped going to CASA, it got a little better, but I hardly have any love for it anymore. But I still thank you, for always having an inviting environment for me to be in. I've felt awful that my class performance had dropped drastically over the year, and I thank you for bearing with me.
