Bent But Not Broken

Da Goddess @ 15:12

Although, to be honest, I do feel as though something within me has been shattered into tiny little pieces. I’m pretty sure it’s my self-respect.

I should have done or said something sooner. I really should have. But, there are times when you go along to get along because it’s the safest route.

I don’t feel like playing it safe anymore, though. That scares me.

So, I retreat further inward. Few know the truth of what’s happening. The few who do keep encouraging me to run for the hills. Easier said than done.

For now, I wait like a patient cat stalking its skittish prey.


10 Worst College Majors for Your Career

3) Film and Photography

Unemployment rate: 7.3%

Unemployment rate for recent grads: 12.9%

Median salary: $45,000

Median salary for recent grads: $30,000

Projected job growth for this field, 2010-2020: 13%

Likelihood of working retail: 2.6 times average

Shutterbugs beware: The new-grad unemployment rate for film and photography majors is only narrowly better than the rate for high school dropouts. Film and photo students face tough competition in a crowded industry, and low starting salaries are the norm even in expensive industry hubs such as New York and Los Angeles. Interestingly, film and photography grads are still the best-paid of the art majors, though they make almost $10,000 less than the typical holder of a bachelor’s degree.

Brilliant Filmmaking

Beauty Inside is very cool. The premise is this: every day you wake up with a different body. You’re still you. You just don’t know if you’ll be male, female, tall, short, fat, skinny, beautiful, less attractive…you just don’t know.

And the coolest part about this? Everyone can submit videos and photos and audition to be the lead.

Brill. Right?
