ive been waiting for eight hours for u
Goose was one of my first pets to photograph, he belongs to the Aldie Vet Clinic’s office assistant. She adopted Goose when someone left him at the clinic because of his special needs. She was able care for him and give him a new home. When Goose arrived at my studio, his Momma let him down and he began sniffing around the space for about 10 minutes. Once he had everything mapped out, we were ready to work. It was really amazing to see him walk around the studio using his mental picture, and if you didn’t know any better, you would have no idea he couldn’t see!!! In just 10 minutes, he had everything so perfectly figured out, that he could even walk up and jump up on the bed, knowing precisely where it was!! He never bumped into anything and was very very very friendly. He had a smile on his face the whole time, it was an amazing experience for me :)

Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.
This is actual bullshit.
You need money to live. The sad fact is, most writers/artists/otherwise creative types will always have to have a “day job” in order to have said warm apartment + computer + cat. Rent costs money. Electricity costs money. Food costs money. Laptops cost a fuckton of money. Cats need to go to the vet as well as cat food and a littler box, and vet bills cost three fucktons of money.
Want a family? You need even more than a bed and a laptop. Which, you guessed it, costs money.
Most people can’t afford the capital to start a yarn shop. Most people will never be approved for the loan it will take to start a yarn shop. 50 to 70 percent of small businesses fail within the first 18 months (statistic taken from Business Insider).
Some people are skilled AND lucky enough to make a living from their art. This is an awesome thing. It has to be said, though, these people are rare compared to the floods of people who don’t make a living from their art.
I’m not saying don’t follow your passion. I’m saying that you may have to work really hard at something you don’t enjoy as much in order to provide the circumstances under which you can ALSO do the thing(s) about which you are passionate.
I really, really wish people would stop perpetuating this terrible and sometimes destructive notion that working a regular job is somehow beneath you if you’re a creative type. “Do what you love!” seems to imply that you will spend the rest of your life feeling fulfilled and bubbling over with joy because you’re living out your dreams. That’s not how it works. Work is work, and even if you’re making a living following your dream, it will still be work, and there will be days when it’s not fun.
If you’re not making a living following your dream, that is also okay, and don’t let anyone else make you feel bad about it. You do what you need to do in order to keep a roof over your head, food in your stomach, and your family (whatever sort of family you have) provided for. Pursue your passion when you can, and take joy in it when you can.
Fucking THANK YOU.
