I'm an art history major. I love the humanities--art, music, literature, and history. I play the piano and I was a band nerd in high school. I occasionally enjoy photography, though I would never identify myself as a photographer. I looove vintage clothing and antiques. My favorite bands include Marilyn Manson, Nightwish, and Emilie Autumn. I post and reblog what I like, and I occasionally just post about my life. That is all. DOB: 1991 Location: Missouri
Lupita Nyong’o wins an Oscar for portraying a real life slave, and the first thing she did was thank Patsy for her inspiration.
Jared Leto wins an Oscar for portraying a trans woman, and doesn’t mention trans women at all.
I think the point makes itself.
He actually did thank the trans community but Tumblr is so desperate to hate him they are spreading false rumours about him being a rapist.
I think that speaks for itself.
Hey guys. Recently I’ve been in a rough patch and the long story short is, I’ve gotten fired from two different jobs in a span of five days.
I don’t know what I’m going to do. I owe over $200 in taxes due to the fact that I filled out my W-4 form incorrectly, and I owe $120 in bills at the…
the serving size for thin mints is four cookies
…i’ve eaten sixteen
THIS IS WHY YOU WEREN’T GETTING ANY OF MY GIRL SCOUT COOKIES
what the fuck kind of theme for nail polish is “germany”
seriously have we really gone through every other idea in the world
did you do it for the puns
these aren’t even good puns
i am so disappointed
I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING
'these aren't even good puns' erm excuse you but “Don't Talk Bach To Me” is fucking comedy gold
Oh my fucking God it’s real. I think the site said something about it being inspired by Germany as the new fashion metropolis.
I don’t know if I should just look into going to into something completely different than my major (but something I’d still enjoy), or if I should try to resolve my interests with what’s available.
All my potential career options just haven’t worked out. One was because I don’t currently have the chemistry for art conservation. The other is that America doesn’t fucking study Anglo-Saxons or Vikings, or really anything medieval that isn’t fucking manuscripts (with the occasional nod to Gothic, Romanesque, and Byzantine architecture). Don’t get me wrong, I like all of those, but it isn’t what I’ve studied the most, nor what I find the most interesting. But, because America doesn’t really do Anglo-Saxon studies, that means I can’t get a job, in a museum or even teaching, because it so narrow. Yet I couldn’t go to England to go to school for it because afterward I most likely wouldn’t get a job in England.
I have the option of finding something else I enjoy and studying it on my own and attempting to go to graduate school for it. But, I’m not sure I’d even get into graduate school because I am just so done this year, and my advisor hates me. Also, if I chose something that is more popularly studied, then the market is full of people with the same background; so while there are plenty of museums with Renaissance art, for example, and thus would need people whose specialty is Renaissance art, that also means there’s a lot more people to choose from because it’s a popular subject. However, less popular subjects, thought less saturated, don’t often have job opportunities. See the problem?
I don’t even know where we’re going after I graduate. I just know I’m getting married, living with my parents for at least part of the summer, and then going where ever Brian hopefully has a job.
I’m going to be graduating and getting married in a few months, and I’m going to be a real fucking adult, and yet I may be faced with having a degree for something I enjoy and working at a fucking part-time job while I volunteer at a place I’d much rather be employed. I’d even be happy in an arts associate or working for arts advocacy, but at least in Missouri many of the associations are simply a non-profit, donation based membership committee that aids in bringing art and arts projects for the community. I’ve yet to find one, in preliminary searches, that lists any possible job opportunities.
I had grand plans—hell, a couple of months ago I was convinced I was going to go to fucking England to get my master’s degree in Anglo-Saxon archaeology (fucking awesome, right?) until I talked with my advisor and realized how fucking stupid a choice that would be, monetarily and job-wise. I knew finding a job in the museum world would be difficult, I know the job market is limited. But I always somehow thought it would work out. But most of the jobs either require a PhD, at least 2-5 years experience, or are more business oriented—all qualities I lack. I had a plan: graduate with a BA, go to graduate school for at least a master’s, and then get a job in a museum, working my way up if I have to. Instead I’ll just have a useless BA and no real fucking job.
My parents were always adamant that we go to college, and as long as we could figure out SOME career to have with the major, they’d let us follow our hearts. I can honestly say that I love my major, but I can also say that it was a really fucking stupid choice, though granted everything I love would have been a pretty stupid choice as I hate math and business.
I should have become a fucking optometrist. At least eyes are cool, and I’d have much better job prospects.
I don’t know what the fuck I’m doing when I graduate, I’m stressed and burnt out as hell, and I’m scared. What the hell am I doing with my life?
