    awwh guys :’) i feel so luuurved.
    basically.. i chose to do chem, biology and physics + psychology at college.
    annnndd.. recently, i just decided that i can’t do it (cos i really can’t).
    i love art and i want to write and paint and draw and take photographs of stuff. sometimes i get up at 3am to paint, i feel like it’s what i’m meant to do. but i’m 1/2 the way through my first year and my dad will go nuts (cos he’s spent a couple of hundred on a SEXY chemistry tutor to help me out) and i can’t just quit and take up what i want to do.. i don’t really know what i can do about it. arrghhhhh. i’m stuck in a big sticky stickiness.

    and it’s stupid that they make us make these choices at 15/16. i’ve shut off every option except science now and i regret it so much.

    EDIT: ohhh.. and i know i change my mind alot though. hmmm. actually fml.

    the exact same thing happened to me when I was the same age as you and young Josh – other than sexy private tutors, in the 1980s female science teachers were rarely that good looking (apart from one, who is now the deputy head of my old high school 22 years later :crazy: )

    the problem is that there isn’t any lasting careers in art, even less so than when I was young because the Internet has created this “free content” culture. There are loads of artists round here in Suffolk, its a popular enclave for them, but the ones making a living out of it are mostly older than me, some could easily be my parents.

    I ended up just scraping through science A levels and lasted two years in uni after dropping out in a haze of drugs – but this gave me enough of a grounding in how to make computers and electronic stuff work to keep me in work for two decades. Amazingly a lot of people think I have all sorts of degrees and am some sort of professor, when in fact I am just some British Asian wideboy stuck in the 1980s/1990s who refuses to grow up 😉

    Everyone I know what has done art courses has either ended up working in a shop or call centre or had to do something else to make a living..

    I know a lot of people with science backgrounds who make art as well, as I am an engineer by trade and they actually combine science and art to make stuff what people can use..

    can you not drop one subject and change it for an arty one? personally if you can hack it I would keep art as a hobby (and I did art) but thats only because its about as much use as a chocolate tea pot in the real world. But then its fine if combined more academic stuff.

    i guess i just have to try and scrape through with the science then. i do love physics and psychology so that’s okay, and i can put up with biology cos i seem naturally alright at it somehow :S i dont really care much about chemistry so.. meh. i could maybe take up photography at the end of this year. you’re right about how you can’t earn much from art though. i’ve been thinking about that but i don’t know, i’d rather be poor if i could do the things i love though. i’m still going to look into trying to find an art college that might take me.. it’s probably not going to happen.

    thing is you do well academically then you can give art a damn good go and if it doesn’t work out, which it probably wont, then you have something more substantial to fall back on.

    Bit like if you want to be an actor ffs dont just take drama!

    its not a case of being poor but zero income – I’ve seen so many places selling arty stuff close down in my town. the girls I know doing arty stuff (ok they are a bit older in their 20s and 30s) have day jobs like encouraging sustainable food (which you need biology for) and another is a librarian and both went to uni

    most art colleges in Londonistan are fucked due to the funding issues, they seem to be full of nathan barleys and youts wanting to be the next N-Dubz anyway.

    I know someone who was seriously talented at illustration, well beyond your normal college/uni art work. Shes buggering off to china.

    If anyone could have made it it would have been her, all my mates were all arty but she was miles ahead. Not that she wont mind, but even for someone with her talent and confidence (buckets of, and intelligence) it seems to be a massive fight with little chance of winning.

    same with my cousin, very good actor, did some Tv work (our friends from the north, couple of adverts) and a film. Did all the big west end shows. Never made any money never went anywhere. Went into building.

    Not that you shoudlnt persue it, just make sure you have a damn good backup.

    But what do I know, I totally fucked up my academic career.

    i guess that’s a good point.. i have a few wannabe actor friends who take science with me. i knew that art didn’t earn much but i didn’t realise how little :O
    but the other end of the problem is that i really can’t cope with all this science. chemistry is getting me down so much, i’ve pretty much just given it up. i was also looking into journalism because i’ve always been really good at english but i scrape through science, but chose science all the same because i like making things hard for myself. can you get into journalism without an english a-level?

    Do not feed doughnuts to your obese children
    You will regret it when they’re in their teens
    Maccas might shut them up now that they’re seven
    But they won’t forgive you when
    They’re getting picked last for PE
    Don’t you see?

    So you telling me that your family
    Has a history of obesity
    You got a wire loose in your pituitary
    It’s just the way that God made me

    It’s unlikely, statistically
    To be a physical thing
    But either way it don’t explain why you
    Are in the cue at Burger King

    You can blame it on biology
    You can blame your physiology
    You can point to genealogy
    And your social anthropology

    You can say you are an ectomorph
    That you just can’t get the kilos orf
    Well you can be what you wanna be
    But stop feeding that boy KFC

    He weighs 30 kilos and he’s only three
    He looks like a clean-shaven Pavarotti

    Switching to Diet Coke is not the way back
    Boombalata motherfucker
    Your kid’s a fat, have you noticed that?
    Your 5 year old princess in her size 14 tutu
    Only eats pizza like that because you do
    And you, ought to be ashamed
    For you have only got yourself to blame

    Will be dead of a heart attack
    Before your grandchildren are ten
    Perhaps you’ll consider
    A cut-back on extra fries then

    Boombalata kiddie-stuffer
    Have you noticed that your kids are fat?
    What are you gonna do about that?
    What are you gonna do?

    So you�re telling me that your family
    Has a history of obesity
    You got the polycystic ovaries
    Your mum had childhood diabetes

    But � and in your case
    There’s a fucking big butt
    Do you think it’s an appropriate treat
    The all-you-can-eat at Pizza Hut?

    There’s no excuse you silly goose
    For a child with a caboose
    Like a moose who�s eaten too much mousse
    It�s tantamount to child abuse

    Kick them off the fucking couch
    Unplug the Playstation
    Send them down to the park
    If they don�t wanna go, make ’em

    Tell them they have to jog
    Until their jogging shorts fit ’em
    If they hesitate, ask firmly
    If they still resist, hit ’em

    Is this what you want for your girl and your guy?
    These chips off the pork chop, for the toffee apples of your eye?
    Kit Kats in value packs are not the way back
    Boombalata Motherfucker
    Your kids are fat, did ya notice that?

    And you, you should feel ashamed
    For you have only got yourself to blame
    Your 6 year old miniature Jabba the Hut
    Eating half melted Mars Bars from the folds of his gut
    He’ll be looking for a kidney
    Before your grandchildren are ten

    Perhaps you’ll consider
    A cut-back on Taco Bell then
    Perhaps you’ll consider
    A cut-back on Krispy Kreme doughnuts
    And Popcorn in bucket-sized boxes
    And microwave pizza or drive through McDonalds
    For weeknightly dinners in front of the TV
    And notes to the phys-ed instructor saying
    Timmy has asthma but he really just gets short of breath
    Cos he’s 35 kilos above the ideal weight
    Of 35 kilos for a nine year old boy

    rarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
