That's wonderful. Although it sounds as profitable as a Masters in Theatre Arts. And as a double poverty whammy I minored in dance......Laugh out load

Truth!

I used my MFA to teach college for a while, during which time I made about $10-15/hour teaching students to write and "sold" a few stories to literary journals for $0 dollars. Meanwhile I was making $50/hour doing part-time medical transcription! But I loved my MFA program and don't regret it--I learned a lot and met so many great people.

Right now my son's majoring in bassoon and minoring in illustration...

I taught costume design and history at a college too. I designed all the costumes for the college productions and worked my ass off. Loved the students! After that I did some theatre work down in Los Angeles and a little bit of TV but the costume unions are pricy and the movie industry costumer's are cut throat assholes. Anyway, I put my knowledge of textiles to good use and work with interior designers now so it kinda turned out ok. I still costume shows around the Portland area when I have time.

It's crazy the road one takes when one goes into the arts. It makes for an interesting life I gotta say.

Dafuq you mean?

I completed some college. Dodgy

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Okay, here is the breakdown of the stats thus far for the respondents (I'll make some pretty graphs at some point to accompany this):

For gender:
  • Key Explantion counts percent
  • M male 33 73
  • F female 9 20
  • Ba Bananaman 1 2
  • Nb Nonbinary 1 2
  • GM Girlyman 1 2
