paint box - January 22nd 2010, 01:11 AM

i know tis isnt acctuly a real death, but its like one to me. in September, my fav place ever closed. forever. i had alot o good friends there, and the place itself was like a third home, but an escape from home home. if that makes any sence. and almost every Saturday i would go there for art classes. since it closed, ive been getting really stressed, and i miss all my friends so much. i miss the smell, look, and feel of the place itself too. it feels like when i lost my great grandmother, except more intence. plus, this next semester i cant take art in school because of band. and im not quitting band. but that just makes the loss all the more real. i keep trying to hide my greif, but it hasnt been working lately. i think if i hve art at school, ill feel a little better, but i cant. its imposible. i dont know what to do, and i fell like ill just collapse any second if i dont stop greiving. and i cant take another class somewhere else. it just wouldnt be the same. i have no idea how to handle this, because ive always hidden my negitive feelings, bringing my positive feelings upfront. but i have no positive feelings anymore. i have almost notheing to look forward to, and im sinking deeper and deeper. what can i do?

It's hard to leave behind a place you knew so well. Kind of like moving. Is there any chance that you can get in contact with your friends there? And I know you said you can't take another class somewhere else, but try. You can at least give it a shot because if you feel like nothing else will work then all you've got left is the chance to try.

Or find other things that you love doing. Find other places around your town where you can go as an "escape". Maybe a skate park, library, or movie theater. Whatever it is, you can get to feeling better about yourself and move on. Good luck.


Waitin' for my ruca.

Is there any way that any art would help even just a little bit? Maybe doing the art would make you feel more "at home". As for your dad, he should be at least allowing you out of the house every once in a while. If he isn't, then it's something you need to bring up with him if you ever want it to get better. Tell him how you feel but don't yell or do anything too crazy or it will just come off as insincere. How else is he ruining your happiness?

Re: paint box - February 7th 2010, 02:53 AM

i wanted art this semester, but being in band and in advanced math preventes it. i draw durring class all the time, but each time i draw, it always gets better and thn i think of how proud my art teacher would be of me but would never know. my dads constantly yelling at me for doing things i didnt do, ornot doing things i didnt no i shoulve and well, just, not really letting me do anything. ive talked to him about it, my mom too, and they both say tht its me and not him. they dont see things from my perspective. they think they are, but they dont know anything about how i see things. so nothing really helps there. plus my new elctive, witch i want so badly to be art, is horrible and is taught by a teacher who i dont like. at all. witch isnt helping any. and i mean my dad lets me out of the house sometimes, its just i dont really have anywhere to go. i dont really have anything...

Could you possibly get contact with your old art teacher, so that you can still show her your work and get her opinions on it, even if you aren't taking her classes any more?
