For grades 9 through 12 I was mainly an art student and history student.
Grade 11, in photography people kept on stealing my photographs. The teacher wouldn't believe, so she failed me.<P>Then at the start of OAC (grade 13, more like first year university) the entire art department started labeling my work pornographic. If I were to have even <B>one</B> illustration with of a woman in my entire sketch book (hell even if it was something like fridays strip) they would refuse to mark any of my work in my sketchbook.<P>So I stopped going to art class (and ultimately almost stopped drawing and any artistic venture all together.) Spent the entire period in the school's weight room, or on some occasions climbed to the roof just to get a good view of the CN Tower.<P>Then dropped my art course for the following semester and took a harder law course.<P>It has been two years since I stopped doing art. I'm trying to get back into it, but my skill level in no where near where it should be.<P><B>Jacci</B>
Confidence is must for anything. If a person wants something they have to just get up and go for it, they can't sit on their ass and expect everything to just happen for them.<P><B>ThingfromtheDeep</B>
I'm sure not many people are going to like hearing (reading) this, but it is the truth (atleast from my point of view.)<P>Hot girls who date ugly guys exclusively, often have baggage. This one girl I know only dates fat guys. When I asked her why once this is what she said
<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>
"I date them, because being seen with them makes me look that much better."
She wasn't saying it to be a joke. Sometimes hot girls only date ugly guys to make themselves feel better. sure sometimes there is an emotional connection, but there is always that margin.<P><B>You know what though...</B>
don't mind me, most of the girls I was friends with in school are now strippers.
