I’m a current major in #9, soon to be adding a dual in #3. Fuck that. Also, anthro majors: you don’t make a ton of money right out of school because most undergrads go right on to grad school. Anthro also requires a lot of working during the degree-getting process. For instance next summer I’m  most likely going to St. Thomas or Southeast Asia for 6 weeks. That’s right, class credit for going to the carribbean to dig up cool shit and/or learn about people. Can’t beat that.

Hollaaaa at Architecture being #5! Fuck that major.

Aw graphic art and design. You number four skank.

Number 2 up in the hizzy!

So anyone notice that these are “feminine” occupations that require the feminine skills of creativity, communication and understanding?  OF FUCKING COURSE MALE-ORIENTED “SCIENCE” IS GOING TO LABEL THEM USELESS.

Don’t fucking tell me that the arts are useless.  In such a visual, media-oriented society, design, creativity, and ART are everywhere.  When you go home at night, you don’t read the latest science journals about finding the largest prime number, YOU WATCH FUCKING TV, WHICH IS MADE BY WRITERS, ACTORS, DIRECTORS, AND ARTISTS.  Seriously.  do. not. fucking. TELL ME that the arts are unimportant.  Just because it’s not in a museum or a literary journal does not mean it’s not art.

Reblogging from my personal blog just because I think it’s an important message to get out: if anyone ever tells you that art and creativity are unimportant, it’s a fucking lie.  Never ever EVER feel ashamed or less-than for pursuing what you love and what you’re good at.  Honestly, where would OMG that Dress and OMG that Artifact be without creative people following their passion?


WHOO HOO TOP TWO! Now tell that to my 1.4 million views last week, Science. 

< Studio Art Major, Theatre minor. Suck it.

I know I’m going to get a lot of hate for this comment, but it was actually best described by my History Professor (I’m a double major of chemistry and history): Sciences are the movers and shakers of the majors, the rest enrich lives. Science cures illness, creates indoor plumbing, creates safer buildings, and keeps us from eating poisons. Sciences will never go to war, they may argue, but it is quickly solved by an experiment (ex./ “water has 2 hydrogens” “no it doesn’t!” “you want to bet!” “yeah!” “to the lab!” problem solved) where as other disciplines will be constantly warring. Science creates a safer life, its the rest of the disciplines that make it bearable. 

So yes, in some ways science is the most useful discipline, but it doesn’t mean that the others are unimportant. Just unnecessary for survival.

P.S. keep in mind I major in BOTH respects, so no, I’m not prejudice, and it was a HISTORY professor that described this best, not a science professor.
