school work shit

i cannot stand teachers and schools that care about attendance, if you can get the grades without showing up to the class, the class is useless. If you do not need to show up to learn the material, they should just fucking give you the grade and shut up. Docking people for attendance is fucking making yourself self-important lmao when u clearly aint.

And lets be honest half the time theres a participation part of the class in say a social science class, the participation means listening to people argue about whether or not you’re human. ~wOW SO FUN AND ENLIGHTENING. u sure showed me a lesson about life chad.~

here comes a special baby!

  • Lance: Keith and I are the main characters, so that means we're the love interests!
  • Pidge: Oh yeah? What does that make us?
  • Lance: You boys are the homosexual supporting cast!

Hiya, i recently read your response to my ask(thank u btw) and u had said you didn't even finish college. Does working at cartoon network not require an arts/ communications degree? What education/ experience is required? Would u recommend finishing college? Would u recommend trying to intern?

Well, I’ve heard rumors that studios are starting to require degrees to get hired, but in my experiences, a degree was never once relevant whatsoever. So I’m not sure if that rumor is just a rumor or not. I never even got asked about my college experience.

I think for a lot of places, your portfolio/skill as an artist sort of acts as your degree as opposed to an actual piece of paper that just says you took classes because your work tells people what they need to know about your abilities more than anything else (this is a very art industry specific thing, I know other careers require those degrees).

Whether or not college is a path you want to take is really up to the individual! I think some people benefit greatly from going to college because they need that work environment to learn and feel they can grow as an artist, while other people are more comfortable learning on their own. At the end of the day, college is just ONE path out of many that can get you where you need to go. Plus, considering how expensive college is in the U.S. nowadays, I personally recommend if you can avoid it and save yourself the loans, do that.

If you can try for the opportunity to intern, I’d say go for it because it looks like it’s a lot of fun! I’ve never interned. :(

I think one important piece of advice I have for people trying to make it in the industry: Don’t limit your options.
I’ve seen so many people get very narrow ideas about how they HAVE to get into the industry, saying they HAVE to go to college, or HAVE to go to a specific Art College (*coughyouknowtheonecough*), and so put their lives on hold trying to meet these arbitrary goals that aren’t even their end game goal. If college and getting that degree works for you, then great! But know there are so many other ways and if plan A doesn’t work, try a plan B, or plan C, D, etc. and keep trying different methods until something works out.
