This week I finally started class, I am going for my MFA in Digital Media Studies along with a certificate in New Media. What that means, well I have no idea but it sure as hell sounds impressive.
All my classes are located in the Fine Arts building, so there is a hodge podge of actors/actresses, artists, and the like. The thing is I stick out like a sore thumb in there, I feel like I don’t blend in at all, especially since I am going to class after work. So in order to feel a little bit more comfortable in my surroundings I have come up with a list of potential changes I can make.
Dress in all black- Nothing says artistic more than dressing in all black and walking around like the garbage man rolled over your new puppy. Of course I run the risk of people thinking that I am a ninja or a 15 year old goth girl.
Changing the color of my hair- There is an undergrad group that a my friend Erin and I noticed after our orientation, at first we thought they were high schoolers touring the campus but now we realize that they live in the Fine Arts building. Perhaps they have a dungeon below the theater, I don’t know. Anyways, they all have fantastic hair styles and colors, when they walk around they make me think of a pack of skittles.
Sit in the corner and write in a notebook- Now the notebook can’t be like a 5 star notebook or anything with lines in it, it has to be a bound book. If I do get one, I have to sit in a very defensive position and only look up out of my notebook to give the world a look of disdain.
Wear a Cure t-shirt- Wait, that doesn’t work anymore?
Gain thirty pounds and don’t shave my armpits- Wait if I keep eating wings every other day that first thing could happen sooner rather than later…. This might happen if I want to or not.
What suggestions do you have to make me fit into this artistic community a little better?
