- Holding down a job is not a measure of value.
- Attending school is not a measure of value.
- Whether or not you can “contribute” to society is not a measure of whether or not your life is valuable and worth preserving.
These are standards held up by a society which values money and production over everything else. If you think life has any less value or worth because of an inability to do any of the above you’re fucking wrong.
all I’m wondering is… why would you want to spend the majority of your life doing something you hate?
I’ve been thinking long and hard lately that you’re not really relevant in modern art unless you stick out like a sore thumb. The internet has created way too much competition, making it so accessible for anyone to throw something out there. It’s a painful feeling to think that if you’re an artist at heart, you’re gonna have to go a long way to be any sort of successful at it. How many people have to keep working dead end jobs til the day they die to make ends meet?
