When you were 16, what did you think your life would look like? Does it look like that? Is that a good thing?
When I was 16 I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I was applying for college and just trying to graduate. I was terrified of going to college, and didn’t know what to study. Everyone kept telling me to pursue art, but I didn’t want to, even though I love art. I thought doing any kind of art as a job would ruin it for me. (Wrong.) I looked into the Air Force, and almost joined. I ended up going to college right after high school, but was in denial about art as a profession for a long time.
As a 16 year old, I figured by age 27 I’d be long finished with school, probably have a house, be married, have a baby. Partially true. I don’t have a house yet. We almost bought one last year, but it just wasn’t in the cards for us at that time. I still haven’t finished my bachelors degree yet. So I guess life sort of looks the way I thought it would, it’s not totally bad.
