I guess I’m saying this because I’m a grad student in fashion journalism and I don’t want to do it anymore. I don’t want to be a quitter because I’ve never quit anything before, but I don’t like this field whatsoever. I don’t want to tell people what trends they should follow. I don’t want to tell people they should buy $700 shoes because I can’t afford $700 shoes and I bet you can’t either. I’ve only been in class for just over a month and the intensity with which I dislike my classes is something I’ve never known in academia before. I’ve been a pre-med student before and loved all my bio and chem classes. I’ve been and art student before and loved the studio and art history classes. I’ve sat in on my friends’ sociology classes and loved them. I like school a lot. Which is why this is so troublesome to me.
I guess the only reason it’s troublesome is because I know what I want and the debt I’m going into because of these stupid classes that I’ll probably drop/fail out of will keep me from doing just that. It eats me up on a daily basis. If I could go back 45 days and re-do it, best believe I would. So it goes.
