So you’ve decided to go to art school? Good! So you’ve made it past the endless stream of ridicule? GOOD! Now brace yourselves, that’s only the beginning of what’s in store for you.
Your priorities change.
"No! Not me!" You say, "I'll never sacrifice hygiene for the sake of my work!" When you've slept a grand total of 20 minutes all week, you'd be surprised how quickly showering falls to the bottom of your priorities list.
You're going to see your friends naked. You're going to see your peers naked. You're going to see strangers naked. HECK, even YOU may get naked in the name of art. As soon as you start to memorize every freckle on campus, it stops being edgy.
You're going to make TERRIBLE decisions about your appearance. OWN IT.
Let's face it, you're going to be compelled to do one of the following:
Pierce your face
Spend your grocery money on a tattoo
Dye your hair
Destroy your haircut
ALL in the name of edginess.
GO FOR IT. Your appearance is just another canvas for you to explore! MAKE IT WORK (Sorry if your mom hates it. Don't tell her I told you it was ok.)
You poor, jaded soul.
