Rant about the lupisvulpes community
Disclaimer Nothing here is to cause drama or directed at anyone specific, i want people to be AWARE of their actions and how shitty people treat each other in this community. This isn't against Lupis herself i respect her as an artist and she hasn't done anything bad to hurt people etc. This isnt hate on lup, this is more of a rant of her community. THIS IS MY EXPERIENCE WITHIN THIS COMMUNITY. Please note: this isnt gonna be fancy shit, im bad with grammar and writing im like 2 yrs old By far this has been one of the worst communities i have ever came across, all the people in this community are so hateful and greedy and with absolutely back

I actually started the application process in September, firstly took the TOEFL english exam [that was not cute and cuddly at all!]. But I didn't want to say anything here about applying in case nothing of this works out, so now, 4 months later I'm telling you, gais. :'D
It was a process of gathering documents, getting them translated by official notary people, getting recommendation letters from three different schools I've attended, writing a resume, a letter of purpose and in the end gathering 15 portfolio pieces. It was hard to choose 15, ugh. ;D; It's like you have no idea of what are they gonna thing, what they'd prefer, what they would hate.

On the night from 11 to 12 January around 2 AM I was about to sleep when my phone buzzed, signaling of a new email. I was all ''Oh, come onnn sleeepies plzzzz.. check tomorroww....''. Two minutes later I just couldn't keep myself from checking what has, in my mind - ebay sent me now. To my surprise it was an email from SCAD [Savannah College of Art and Design] explaining the scholarships and a grand I've received. Then I was: ''Wait wat.'' It was a moment I was waiting for nearly 3 weeks now and the waiting just kills, it's the worst! So I staid up all night calculating and trying to figure out how am I gonna get money for the rest of the tuition, as the scholarships and everything doesn't cover all of it, I'm good just for one semester from three and a little bit for the second semester. Basically. I need money. As every student on this planet. ^^ Four years, three semesters each, roughly, if I keep my grades good and get through these 4 years, it's like one year and one semester is paid for me, which sound so nice at some point.. ;u;

I didn't say anything to my parents for a day as I was still calculating and thinking over things. They know how much I want to study this, but they also know that there is no possible way to pay for it. You know, a person get's to be a starving student just once in their lifetime [if not going to colleges many times in their lives xD] and I think I'd want to experience the problems and later, if I work hard enough - the fruits. There are people who say ''Hells, why you need college, if you're good at what you do, they will hire you anyway!'' But imagine. There are two people for you to choose from to hire: one is a great artist, would do great job for you and the other one is a great artist, would do a great job for you + has a degree. I think it's obvious that it is safer to hire the one with clear experience who has gone through all of the stages of creating something and learned through it.

As I live a few oceans and continents away from SCAD I applied for distance learning, with the new 21st century technology and innovative study curriculum I'm glad this is possible nowadays. I chose graphic design as it's a big part of our everyday lives and it's totally gonna be around in the future. Plus, I love graphic design apart from illustration. C: Some might as why would I ever want distance learning, it's obviously better to attend even a local college, but in person! Well, my life has it's difficulties and my health does not allow that for me. ^^'' This is the only way and I'm just taking my chances. I'm glad that I can get the accredited BFA degree and the workload is the same as on campus. People who have jobs, they usually do this kind of studies as they don't have the time to go to classes, they can take them any time, when it's most convenient to them, which is pretty neat.

Now we're still gonna think about possible options how to gather the funds. We have some ideas, but everything is still in a big fuzzy bag of air. I hope I will be able to one day write a journal here telling about how hard the studies are and how I could pass out from the lack of sleep while doing the assignments. C: I hope.

How are you, gais, cool? 'Sup? :la:

Thank you! :hug:
I think if you feel like there is a chance that you'd really attend the school despite the costs and you'd love what you do [despite it being frustrating at times] - then it's worth at least trying to apply. C: :heart:
