Today is my last day taking classes as an animation major at sva. The me from two years ago would be appalled to find out I switched to fine arts, but the me from two years ago knew a lot less than I do. I look to my right and hear a bunch of pop culture regurgitating kids mimicking dozens of cartoon characters from underground animations and on adult swim and I watch girls testing their punching strength on awkward boys, people dressed like anime characters, and all sorts of socially awkward people thriving on their community. I'm socially awkward too, but in a different way. I'm sad to be leaving, but I know that I'm making the right choice, for my career, for my happiness and for, of all things, community. Maybe I'll have luck there.
