When in doubt, blog it out

So this whole "your not good enough to be in our photography program" really sucks.
Lets be honest here.. who loves being told you aren't good enough?

So I'm doing a little re-evaluating.
I've been really upset because I loved all my art classes, I loved the teachers, I loved the HFAC (The Fine Arts and Communications Building), I felt like this is where I belonged. && I still do, that's the problem. So this is my dilemma.
What do I major in? What do I study? What do I want to learn more about?
I'm going to have to do some much needed soul searching these next couple of months.

I had a teacher last year that gave me this quote

"The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet"

Now I just have to find that meeting place.

Here are some of the options I have been thinking of...

High School Teacher:
Either English or Photography

Art History Major

Advertising

Graphic Design

Textile Design

English

Human Development

I just have so many interests, I just have to find out which one I want to pursue right now.

my sister did textile design and she LOVED it. and you're right- there are sooooooo many options and SCREW the photography program! honestly kaitlin, you are so talented. and the fact that you didn't get in does not mean you are not good enough. it just means that heavenly father has something even better that will make you much happier... you probably think i'm rambling but i am serious! there have been a lot of things in my life that haven't worked out and eventually better things have come along. the transition period is just so hard sometimes. but keep your chin up! i love you and think you are a smokin hot talented young woman!

so... I stumbled upon your blog, and I kind of love it, because I applied to the photo program too, and was also rejected. And I looked at your pictures, and they are kind of amazing. And I'm honestly shocked that you didn't get in, because I love them all. But I'm in the same boat as you, I have no idea what I'm going to major in but I know that no matter what it is I'm going to keep doing photography. Because its what I love, and even if they don't like my pictures, I do, and that is good enough for me.
