i'd rather not pester you lovely people, but i have a weird favor to ask of all of you.
i had an assignment for one of my classes, and one requirement was to post it on a social media platform and ask for feedback.
the assignment was to pick a part of ourselves that we identify with, then find a piece of media/art/whateva that represents it. we then had to figure out what parts of the existing piece doesn't reflect our views, and then manipulate it to reflect our identity better.
i picked the fact that i did ballet and other dance for a lot of years. when i was younger, i thought i would be doing ballet forever, and would end up teaching it or something similar. i still somewhat identify as a dancer, because i did it for so long, and thought i'd be doing it for much longer.
i took this degas painting and repurposed it to reflect my current views of dance. it's a really exclusive world. you have to start it early and be committed. you can't very easily stop doing ballet, and then expect to just start it up again after taking a hiatus (like i did). i still love ballet and dance so much, but i don't necessarily fit in that world anymore.
now, feedback? it's part of the assignment to ask for some. i welcome whatever you guys want to say about this, even criticism!
you guys are the besssst.
