It really aggravates me that my mom doesn't understand anything about this industry..
I get so excited about shoots and some of the models that I get to work with and any time I tell her anything about them, the first thing she says is, "Are you getting paid?!"
NO. You can't expect to get paid while building your portfolio and gaining experience.. the industry doesn't freaking work that way! God, it's so frustrating! And then she says that I'm not getting anywhere because I don't have schooling. There's NO WAY in hell I'm ever attending art school. I've learned so much in the past year at my little job at the newspaper and doing shoots on my own, then I would accomplish at art school.
Ugh, I'm so fucking annoyed. And then on top of all this I have to finish looking at 1800 pictures and editing them by the end of this week. That's usually very simple, except the fact that I can't make up my damn mind about the edits and my computer is slow as hell!
