“… The only time I ever argued with a prof about my final grade.”

When I took photography in college, the regular prof was on maternity leave and she's really awesome. I ended up taking another class with her later. But they had a retired prof fill in for her. And if I had not taken two years of photography classes in high school, I would've been completely lost. Because he had written his own textbook, but - and by textbook, I mean, you know, like it was written by hand on paper and he got it printed at printing services, you know, and bound. It's not like it was published. And it did not make sense to me, and the way he taught did not make sense to me, because with photography it's not just about like how to take pretty pictures. I mean, you actually have to learn how to use a camera and, you know, f-stops and shutter speeds, not to mention, you know, using chemicals and measurements and stuff and times to develop it, like there's a lot of technical aspects to it. And he was terrible at teaching that. And if I - again, if I didn't have some background, I would've been totally lost. And I remember he was really - he was a cyclist as well. And so he was constantly talking about bicycling and like a lot of the illustrations - he illustrated the textbook as well. And what I remember from the illustrations was a lot of bicycling and he was really into forests made of broccoli trees, like all the forests were broccoli. Why? I don't know. I'm like I could appreciate that kind of quirkiness, but not when it overtakes learning, you know? And he was very into - he made me hate the word "panache" and oh gosh, there was another one. And I just can't stand those words anymore because he ruined them, because it's like "Every picture has to have panache", you know. Jaunt! Was the other one. Every time, you know, it'd be like "You go on a jaunt to take photographs". Oh gosh. This man. It was the only time I ever argued with a prof about my final grade, because he wanted to give me a B and I was like "Absolutely not. I did every assignment, I did everything that I was asked of me just because you don't think - I mean art is very,…

“How did I spend my Halloween?”

How did I spend my Halloween? This was the first year since I was a teenager that I've been able to hand out candy 'cause I've lived in dorms and apartments for like several years. And of course, you know, you don't hand out candy in those situations. So this is the first year, and my boyfriend and I both dressed up. So that was a lot of fun, and - let's see. It sprinkled like a little bit, but other than that, it all worked out really well and I had like - it was so cute because I dressed up kind of like a queen because I was able to find, like, a Renaissance looking dress, and then like one of those prom or bridal tiaras, you know? That you get at like craft stores and stuff. One little girl was like, "Are those real jewels or fake?" So that was really cute, and then one kid - if it was just a few kids, we would let them like pick out their piece of candy from the bucket, and so one kid was like "KitKats! My favorite!" So it was a lot of fun.

“I don’t think teenagers should be able to vote.”

I don't think teenagers should be able to vote, 'cause they say the brain isn't fully developed until 27, but people are voting at 18. And if teens could be able to vote, I feel like their decision would be swayed by their parents. You know, what they decide. Or by, like, what their friends are doing, it won't be because this is what they want to do. So that's definitely why they shouldn't be able to vote, and because I consider myself a teenager and I don't pay any attention to politics. Like, that's a big stress that I don't have to add to my life right now. I already have enough going on. The only thing I need to work on right now is school. I don't have to pay attention to politics, I can leave that to my parents. You know, that's like an adult thing to do, so I think by not voting it's, you know, something that teenagers don't have to stress about.
