RE: Oh how 5 years changes things..
i recently had the same thing happen to me at the museum.
you see, 7 years ago I was a slacker in highschool, going to class when i wanted, picking my work. you know, your basic go-nowhere ass...
i was at the museum for a docent meeting and my high school art teacher was attending a confrence. she half looked at me and then my nametag, it was then that the light went off-- it was *that* kid.
i extended a hug to her.
you wouldnt know that just 7 years ago, i hated her guts and vowed to make our schools better by replacing her. *that* is how i realized that art was my profession. i had a crummy teacher that would give me no freedom in my work. would not let me independent study; would not pass me.
this is how i chose to enact my revenge. i have been studying at the best(public, mind you..) art institution in state. i have become what i wanted to become on my terms; i've won.
i didnt have to be an ass to show someone that had no faith in my person that i have done ok.
