It's so much easier to help others than be brave enough to face your troubles. For like a week, I've been a wonderful friend, not to everybody but enough to keep me busy. From life coach, to crying shoulder, passing through cupid and unknown guy who puts the missing part of a puzzle. All in all, I like to do that, to be that person. Yet, in the deep I know that this time I do it to avoid my inner anxiety. It's better than procastrinate without no one gaining anything, I guess.
In the process, people have called me great things, do I feel like a coward for not facing certain things, unknown to you. The ray has come, not in the way I expected, as usual.

Allan told me there will be 3 schools dedicated to animation and digital art. Am I the only one who thinks that's bad? It's just like what schools are all about now. I understand they are business, but shouldn't they have a commitment to look for all their students? Where will all these fellows go once graduated? I think schools should be ethical enough to say, hey, there's no possible way this community could absorb so many of these kind. That should apply to lawyers, also. Some could say, and who am I to stop someone from studying what he(she) wishes. I'm no one. They can look for whatever they wish, but someone has to care. Someone ought to mention these guys, "dude, you must know, not everyone is going to get to work on this. You better know that studying it isn't enough. Start working."
But what do I know. My classmates, most of them, didn't study it because they love it. They just enter it, because it sounded cool, with the least possible idea of what's going on. Can I expect more of the art guys? Maybe. More than half of my former peers think of the degree as a way to get money. For the sake of money :s Again, can I expect more? Possibly. Could the internet be a source for sustainable art? Meaning, that thanks to it, digital art will sell better, relieving us from the "it's more than this culture can handle of art".... Dunno. In a sense is good to know that there are so many wanting to do art. If only I were that naïve.
