The answer to that is sadly yes. After long debates, flip-flopping, and facebook networking I decided to give up my spot at The New School to attend film school at LACC. What I found was hoards of adults, working class people enrolling and trying to get degrees, and hardly any first time freshmen. This was mind blowing because I thought that college was for young people full of dreams, not reality's bitches. I soon found out that I was one of the youngest people in my program and that the average student was about 35. Yeah I said 35! Wake up call for real, at least for me.
They're all here because they needed new skills or a degree to keep or advance in their jobs. Technology has changed and so has life in America and these adults needed to catch up before they were thrown out. I thought I was behind, because I was starting in community college instead of taking out a loan for university but I found out that by doing any school at 18 I was actually ahead of the game,, yeesh!
For the first day I wore a military style dress from forever 21, Aldo purse and Doc Marten boots, I also spilled a bottle of water in my purse killing my ipod and phone in one day. Love my luck!
