An Artist's Motivations

Oh how I wish we would start watercolor in painting class

Semester Update

All of my classes for this semester are pretty good.
I know having the mindset I do now is not a very good thing in order to do well in school... (I feel as though school is something that just gets in the way of what I want to do.) I'm having trouble trying to motivate myself to try hard in work and school.

This semester I am taking
Beginners Painting which is a lot of fun, I've taken a liking to the class, although it is very costly and time consuming. I like learning about all of the different types of methods people use to paint (acrylics), and I am developing my own style at the moment.
2D Art was a drag in the beginning. Which reminds me that I still have a lot of work to do for that class. My main reason for getting through the class is having a friend. He helps me get through the class with little jokes, offering me food, and we help eachother out. Although we're not that close, having him there makes me feel a little bit less insignificant in the world. Which to me, means a lot. Thank you my friend :]
Art History
No friends in this class - I'm on my own. The topic first intrigued me, yet I am having problems focusing in class. My mind keeps wandering off when the teacher talks about Egypt and wars which happened throughout the time periods. When I read the chapters on my own, it's almost a different story though. It's very interesting to me and I feel as though I want to keep reading.

This should be my element, Yet when I sit in this class, I feel completely out of place and uncomfortable. The assignments are easy and I can finish them without much thought but again, the hardest thing for me to do is to motivate myself that school is important, and that- is one of the hardest things I've ever had to do in life.

Not having a car puts me in a great disadvantage, and I barely can hang out with my friends or be independent, which stresses me and the people around me.
