I think what really sucks about being a high school artist is the distinct lack of time and inspiration you can get. Wanna work on a project that you’ve planned out in your head? Well, first you gotta go to all your classes in the morning and pay full attention during those classes. Then once you get home, you gotta start on the hours worth of homework you’re assigned. Now you need to consider studying for that chapter test in 2 days. Oh, and Independent Reading, ‘cause that’s a thing. And by the time you finish, it’s maybe 9 PM and you need to sleep because you wake up at 6 AM every day to get ready.
What with how flooded your day is, you can’t draw upon inspiration with the constant threat of failure if you don’t pay exact attention to the lessons at hand. It sucks.
