I guess I am classified as an art student. Even worse I'm an art student at UAL, famed for its pretentiousness. Now don't get me wrong, there are so many lovely people at UAL. People who genuinely love what they are doing, and are passionate and creative whilst also being funny, kind and generous. But then there are the other sort. The ones who need to make others feel inferior. The ones who say "oh you haven't heard of (insert name of obscure artist/photographer) before?" whilst looking down their nose at you. The ones who judge you because they feel they are better than you when, quite often, they are not.
I think this papercut sums up my feelings pretty well. If I ever become pretentious please someone slap me round the face.xxx
