Whenever I tell…
Whenever I tell people that I plan to go to art school, I tend to get one of two responses. There’s “why are you wasting your brain/intelligence that way?” or there’s “good for you, creativity is true genius.”
I disagree with both ways of thinking, though I appreciate the concern from both sides. True intelligence and genius comes from following your own heart, no matter what you feel you must do, or how cliche that may sound.
That’s what I believe, and you can quote me on that.
