So first off, I went with my mom (gasp!) to the LMFA 51st student show and somehow managed to get Honorable Mention for the oil painting that I did of my little brother and I! My mom has yet to upload the picture of me standing happily beside my piece yet, so I don't have a picture of my win :(
Anyways, it was the usual. A random piece won, and I began to seriously question what "fine art" really was.
But yeah. I reaaaaaaally am itching for a job. My dad wants me to stay focused on school and all my extracurriculars but that still doesn't solve my cash flow issue. In order for the world to function people need money. In short, I can't get a job until I go to college.
In order to slowly assimilate me into adulthood my parents have kind of stopped buying me clothes, meaning that the clothes that I bought on my recent trip to Shreveport came out of my dwindling coffers... I'm seriously having buyer's remorse and I'm contemplating on whether or not I want to return everything and get my cash back... But I really need spring/summer clothes... Ugh. I'll sleep on it.
Also, my parents are cutting all funds that aren't a necessity for me. Yeah, I don't think I'm going on any school trips beyond the ILPC Journalism conference in Austin. Not that I really need to go on these trips, it just sucks. I get why they're doing it though, I mean, eventually I'm going to need to become financially independent, but I think I need a job too if I'm going to be paying for my own stuff from now on.
So it goes. I'll think of some way to drum up some money.
