When I broke your heart I thought I had broken my own. I felt like my whole world would come crashing down around me.
It nearly did.
A few days later I got up and made coffee and I felt alright until I remembered. I cried. I sobbed. It racked my body to the point that I couldn’t breathe. I lamented the loss over every kiss, every touch, every utterance of love. In the end, what I lamented most about, was lost time.
That was very selfish of me, but Im a selfish person, and its the truth. I lost a lot of time, but now I can see I learned a lot as well.
That day as I collapsed in on myself in pain and agony and anger, I looked myself in the mirror, gasping for air. I looked at my sorry self; that girl I was when I was your’s, the girl I didn’t like, and I said to her;
"Enough. Wash your face and breathe. Today is the first day of the rest of your life."
And so I did, and so it was.
I never looked back.
Hey Dave! Well, at West Texas A&M the art department in itself is rather small. There isn’t a ceramics degree. Well, you could technically get a bachelors in Studio Art with a Minor in Ceramics. That would be it. Ceramics is offered in four levels so you could only take it 4 times. It’s stupid. The art programs here are Graphic Design, Studio Art, Glass Blowing and Art History. That’s pretty much it. If you want to get a degree in ceramics, don’t come here. I wish I had the money to go anywhere else, but my job is here and my sister is too. So I make the best of it.
When looking for a college look at their catalog of programs. Find a school that has a specific ceramics degree program and has professors that specialize in ceramics. You can look up your professor’s bios on the school’s website as well. All of that is public knowledge. Make sure the school’s ceramics program meets your need and the professors have a good list of qualifications. You’re still going to have to take basics courses your first two years. Math and science and English and all that boring stuff. You get to the real meat of your focus your Junior and Senior year. I suggest going to a community college to take care of your basics. It’s cheaper that way. Then transfer to a four year university for your last half. I also suggest going to a university rather than a trade school. A bachelors degree is more valuable, especially of you want to go on and teach.
Also!! Check out University of North Texas. That was the school I wanted so badly to go to!
